I DO NOT KNOW, DO YOU?
The Tories are stepping up their fight
to pass their omnibus crime bill. They say they
may make the proposed act a confidence matter if the
Liberal-controlled Senate doesn't pass
the bill this month.
Can a vote in the Senate be considered
as a confidence vote that would trigger an
election? I would say no but I really don't know.
Can ad will anyone shed light on this question?

Subject: Have your say on the Federal budget!
PLEASE go to this link and make some good
suggestions, such as cutting military spending
and getting out of Afghanistan, addressing
climate change and the wealth gap and rebuilding
Canada's infrastructure and building good public transit.
The website asks you to rank a very loaded list
of priorities - which ignore all of the issues
above - and make it very hard to answer. These
guys are living on another planet from most of us.
DEADLINE IS FEB 11,2008
The federal government has opened online
consultations for the federal budget, offering
individuals and organizations a chance to
identify priorities for the 2008 budget by going

anything to say about our government's budget

Wow, reading the story in the Vancouver Sun about
your findings about language in
Canada, is amazing.
That on the day that Premier Jean Charest and his
party announced that residents
of Quebec better speak French or be fined, the
repeat of Robert Bourassa's Fascism.
Of course learning languages is one of great
value, not only for the good of the
economy but also for the development of the brain. (Learned four in my good
time, after 50 years in this province can still read most of them but fear to
The Trudeau language enforcement in Canada is of no value for the economy but
only for the benefit to patronize a minority, did
anyone ever listen about that in
Ottawa, of course not, as Central Canada reigns the country, with the support
of our Western Provinces and their dependency on the Charest Council of
the Federation, that achieves nothing more that what Quebec wants. Such
again has been disclosed in Charest release yesterday for more administrative
power through an agreement rather than Constitutional change, as the first
would give him the opportunity to milk English speaking Canada forever.
Unfortunate our Premier, Gordon Campbell, so pre-occupied with his own
agenda that he does not see the enormous economic loss our province has
while feeding Quebec. British Columbia would be better off with an English
official language - English to be present every where without denying the
use of other languages - with the encouragement in learning other languages
for the improvement of our provincincial economy. The majority of
immersion students loose interest later in life, after grade 12, costing us

Subject: Consequences of Globalization and Neoliberal Policies
This is a very long article, but it is essential reading.
It tells the history and the current state of
neoliberal globalization. It summarizes much of
what I have learned (and often tried to not-is)
over the last ten or twelve years. It is vital
reading for anyone who cares about the future of
the human race and the planet. Knowledge is the
only possible antidote I can see for the
galloping destruction of all encompassing corporate greed.
