Is Democracy Dead in Central Saanich?

PEJ News - Sue Stroud -
Three motions were passed at Central Saanich Council September 4th that should have all those interested in democracy and local government concerned. They effectively frustrate and reduce citizen participation in what has traditionally been considered the closest level of government to the people.

PEJ News -Victoria Steering Committe on Homelessness - For most of us, finding our way home is not a difficult task. However, for many members of our community, finding a home is a continued search that involves many hardships and obstacles. The Victoria Steering Committee on Homelessness (VSCH) is working towards solutions to address homelessness in Greater Victoria. Our committee comprises representation from a wide variety of community and government organizations. This website provides information and resources about homelessness in the Capital Regional District, including ways to find help and to offer help. It also highlights the local agencies and initiatives that are assisting our homeless and solutions to end homelessness. Together, we can help our homeless find a way home.

Rest in Peace Georgina Neish

PEJ News
- Dear Friends - Just a quick note to mention that my partner and comrade of 30 years, Georgina Viola Neish, passed away at 7:00 Saturday morning March 17, St Patrick's Day (apropos for a fiery, red haired, part Irish gal).  She had bravely fought for over three years after a very serious and strong cancer had struck her.  She died peacefully at home, in her own bed, beside me, with no pain, just as she had wanted.  Her sister Irma and husband Al from the Yukon have been saviours by staying with us for the last two and a half months.  She asked that there be no memorial service.  Her ashes will be spread in the salt water slough on our Port Renfrew farm, so she will definitely end up inside a few Coho fry and so get a trip to Japan and then in four years return back to the San Juan fish hatchery where some good friends there will catch her and start the cycle all over again.  We are eventually going to have a potluck Wake/party so folks can get together for some good food and drink and maybe trade stories about Georgina.  There is no date or time for this event as yet but Carlos and Kirsten Flores have kindly offered their home as a venue and someone will send out details at a later date.

"Alert Status Red:" Animal Law Conference a Success

PEJ News - Julie Muir:
 Where could you go to think about Aboriginal interests in the context of animal rights, PETA's controversial use of scantily-clad women in ads, and militancy and animal advocacy in the "age of Eco-Terrorism"? All these issues and more were explored in fascinating detail at the Second Annual UVic Animal Law Conference in Victoria last Friday. My only real complaint is that the 7-hour conference was still too short!
