Are you feeling radical?

Dear Friend,

I don't know what it is about today but I'm feeling slightly, well … radical. How about you?

When I wrote before Christmas about an impending government attack on Canada's environment movement, I wasn't expecting a formal Declaration of War just 9 days into the New Year. It came in the form of an "open letter" from Natural Resources Minister Joe Oliver that’s receiving heavy media coverage all across the country.

Asbestos Action Alert

Dear Friend,

We are asking you to show solidarity with asbestos victims in the Third World and support the campaign to demand the Canadian government ban asbestos mining and exports. Asbestos kills over 100,000 people every year, and Canada is a major player in the death-dealing industry. There are a variety of products that carry asbestos fibers and if you are interested in more information then FightMesothelioma.com is a good source.

In a change of tactics, we’re not targeting all Conservative Members of Parliament (MPs) - but just one. A number of other like-minded organizations are also ‘adopting’ a MP and focusing their efforts on convincing him/her what their party is doing is wrong, unethical and immoral.
