Martin wants Star Wars: Here's how you can stop him

Jack Layton is ramping up the NDP's campaign against Canada's involvement in George Bush's dangerous Star Wars missile defence plan. Paul Martin's Liberals are quickly moving forward - we've got to act fast to stop them.

The facts are clear: Star Wars is dangerous, expensive, and it doesn't even work. To get our message out to millions of Canadians we need your help.

Howard Dean is turning politics o­n its head through the Internet - it's time we did the same.

Make an e-Donation to the Stop Star Wars Ad Fund

With your support, the NDP will place large ads in a major English language newspaper and a major French language newspaper outlining why Paul Martin is wrong o­n Star Wars and what Canadians can do to stop him.

To pay for the ads we're asking Canadians to kick-in $5 (or more) to the NDP's 'Stop Star Wars Ad Fund.'

Just $5 from each e.NDP subscriber can buy significant ads in two major Canadian newspapers. The more donations, the bigger the ads - so pass this appeal o­n to your friends and e-mail lists.

Be part of this groundbreaking e-campaign and you can help spread the message to millions of Canadians. It's 100% secure and donations are eligible for tax receipts.

Top 3 Reasons Star Wars is wrong

1. Star Wars is expensive

Star Wars could costs as much as $1 trillion. If Canada is asked to pay even 1/100th of the bill - it will mean $10 billion less for medicare, cities, and the environment. (Source: Centre for Arms Control and Non-Proliferation)

2. Star Wars won't make Canada safer

Starting the next arms race will do nothing to promote security. Canada's Department of National Defence warns Bush's missile defence plan paves the way for putting weapons into orbit (Ottawa Citizen, Jan. 9, 2004).

3. Star Wars doesn't work

Star Wars technology has never worked. Last year the New York Times reported that o­ne test missed its target 'by hundreds of miles'. In contrast, there's lots of technology to keep us safe from climate change. Where's the leadership for that?

Final Word

"We're looking to signal interest to the Americans beyond just discussions, to actual mapping-out negotiations for a Canadian participation."

Senior Canadian Official removes any doubt of Paul Martin's government's position o­n participating in George Bush's Star Wars plan.
