Laibar Singh is an elderly sikh man in ill health, who you may have heard about when he previously took sanctuary in a guduwara in Vancouver and then was detained by CIC. Laibar now has a deportation date set for December 10, and a swift community response is urgently needed. Even if you can't make the emergency rally which is planned for tomorrow, sunday dec 2, you can still help. Phone campaigns by concerned citizens have been extremely effective at getting immediate, tangible change in deportation situations, and also lets us send a tangible message of support to communities directly affected by CIC's policies. I know everyone is very busy at this time of the year with all of our committments, but this is a concrete, quick way to offer support that makes a difference: please take a few minutes and make a phone call to the Minister of Immigration (details below) to ask that Laibar Singh be granted status immediately.
all my best,
Naava

*   My name is Fish and I am a self-employed computer consultant looking for a one bedroom or large bachelor suite for Jan 1 in East Vancouver, in a subdivided home (preferred) or else in an apartment building.  Please, no shared accommodation offers, I want to live by myself and am willing to pay extra to do so!  Also, I am not interested in housesitting or sublets (that's what I am doing right now), I need someplace where I can stay indefinitely.

I would prefer to be in the Commercial Drive or Strathcona neighbourhoods, or somewhere close at least.  I would also like to find something for $850 per month (including utils) at the very most, but hopefully at least $100 less than that.

I am also a musician but my instruments are in a rented practice space elsewhere, so there will be no practicing within the suite.  I would like to be able to play music at low to moderate levels until 10 or 11pm  without bothering anybody, as music is very important to me.  Therefore, buildings with paper-thin floors and/or extremely noise-sensitive tenants will not work for me.  However, I am not interested in a building that is incredibly noisy or chaotic either.
Something in between would be ideal.

I have no pets but if given the choice I would prefer a pet-friendly building in case I get another cat some day.

More information about me is available on request, or during the suite viewing.

Please let me know at This e-mail address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it or 778-896-2297 about any leads you may have for me!

peace and thanks,
Peter 'Fish' Fisera

1.  ForestEthics Protest of Sears Destruction of Canadian Forests - Dec. 4

Tell Sears to Stop Cutting Canadian Forests for Catalogues!


The holiday season is just around the corner and so is our first International Day of Action on the Sears Campaign - and you are invited! On Tues., Dec. 4, people across Canada and the United States will be taking action to tell Sears that they're on our naughty list and it's time to be nice to our Endangered Forests.

In Vancouver, we will be gathering at the downtown Sears outlet at 701 Granville St. from 12:30-1:00PM to send a message to the department store giant to stop cutting Canadian forests for their catalogues.

Since 1880, Sears has been famous for their catalogues, but now it is 2007 and Sears must face this new era of climate change and recognize their role in it. They produce around 425 million catalogues every year - and the paper is coming from Canada's Boreal Forest.

Please call 604-724-4307 or reply to this email, if you can join ForestEthics on Dec. 4 over lunchtime at the Vancouver Sears outlet. Details are below.

Tell Sears you don't want a Wishbook, but that we're wishing they would stop destroying Canadian forests!

Regards,
Neil Monckton,
ForestEthics Senior Organizing Associate - British Columbia

P.S. If you can't attend the Vancouver event, please consider staging your own action at your local Sears outlet. Click here to learn how you can create your own action.

ForestEthics Event: First Sears International Day of Action

Date: Tues., Dec. 4
Time: Lunchtime, 12:30-1:00PM
Location: Sears Canada, 701 Granville St. (northeast entrance at Georgia and Granville)
