EDMONTON -- The Alberta government's attempt to balance competing interests in the oilsands region has failed to protect aboriginal rights, lands and health from industrial development, says an unreleased report.

Instead, the document concludes the Lower Athabasca Regional Plan, which came into force in 2012, has been used by both industry and government to erode traditional land use in favour of economic interests.

Excerpt from a submission to the 2005 Senate Committee on anti- terrorism Act

 

The intelligence community appears to be inept at assessing what constitutes real national and international threats to security. This ineptitude was confirmed recently at a colloquium, entitled the ‘Challenges of Security Intelligence Review Committee SIRC’. An official from SIRC acknowledged the following:

 

In assessing the distinction between those who have a disagreement with politics and those who are deemed to be terrorists...Police agencies are not good at making that distinction and err on the side of security "."Our Intelligence community came out of a cold war culture. We are in a very different world. There is a lot of catch up. We have to have the ability to identify clearly this distinction. If we don’t do this we are threatening the fabric of the civil liberties of Canadians.

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."

The Conservatives claim to be true custodians of the 
 
economy. Yet as the figures below from Statistics Canada 
 
and International Monetary Fund clearly document, 
 
Canadian economy was being rapidly hollowed out in the 
 
last six years of the Conservative rule.

Federal Election: does “honesty in Politics’ have an impact on the debate about “To Whip or Not to Whip votes”? PDF Print E-mail

Global Compliance Research Project

On September 4, 2015, on the CBC program 'the 180", was the following  description of the interview with Duff Conacher from  Ottawa advocacy group, Democracy Watch. When I heard his description of what constitutes "honesty in Politics", I assumed that he is advocating the importance of elected representatives' abiding by their principles, policy and  platform.

Was this  honesty in politics?

When it is difficult to support a political Party is when elected members of the party take positions in opposition to its core values, and policy espoused in its platform . From 1997 to 2000, I was the leader of the Canadian Green Party which was presumed to share, with international Greens,  common values, one of which was non-violence and common policy against Trade agreements. Yet in 1999, when the Greens formed part of government in Germany, they supported the bombing of Yugoslavia. At meetings among Canadian, Mexican and US Greens, there was a common policy opposing NAFTA; yet in the 2000 election, the Mexican Greens formed a coalition government with the right wing PRI and supported NAFTA. Now in Canada the Green Party is willing to ignore its platform with its Green MP Bruce Hyer who left the NDP because he was against gun control; the Green Party platform does support gun control. Also he voted in favour of the bombing of Syria, which also would be considered to be inconsistence with a core principle of the Green Party
