Dear Ruth Ann,

Thank you for speaking out against the Site C dam. British Columbia's plan to turn one of the last protected areas of the Peace River Valley in northeastern BC into a gigantic hydro-electric reservoir is an unacceptable violation of Indigenous peoples human rights.

Canada's election debates should not be limited to the establishment parties,
says Green Party Leader JOAN RUSSOW

November 8 2000


You will not see or hear from the Green Party in the French 
television debates this evening, or the English debates tomorrow, so 
you won't hear about a great many issues that should be fundamental 
to this election.

Ideally, an election is an opportunity for all registered political 
parties to inform the public about issues. When the Governor-General, 
at the request of the Prime Minister, agrees to dissolve Parliament, 
the slate is presumably wiped clean. Members of Parliament lose their 
seats and all registered parties become equal.

Justin Trudeau's national campaign co-chair is stepping down after he sent a detailed email to people behind the Energy East pipeline with advice on how and when to lobby a new government — including a Liberal minority.

Earlier in the day the Liberals stood by Dan Gagnier, saying he did not break any ethical standards. But in a statement later Wednesday, Gagnier said he didn't want to be a distraction to the campaign.

"I deeply regret that the campaign has been affected by these negative, personal attacks," the statement reads.

"I have always conducted my business openly and in full accordance with the rules. In the best interests of the party, I have taken this decision. I continue to support Justin Trudeau and hope for a Liberal government on Oct. 19."
