Time for Parliamentary Debate About Electoral Reform

PEJ News: Joan Russow PhD - April 21, 2005: There should be no federal election in Canada until the House of Commons passes a motion on electoral reform. The current electoral system violates significant sections in the Charter of Rights and Freedoms. In 1999, I was a litigant in a Charter Challenge to the First Past the Post system

Progress on Same-Sex Marriage for Canadians

On Tuesday, April 12, 2005, Canada's NDP helped defeat a Conservative Party amendment (164/132) that would have banned equal marriage for lesbian & gay Canadians.  Below is the NDP's news release followed by a related speech from Jack Layton. Sometimes, the wheels of progress turn slowly but we're a step closer today, and if progressives keep communicating with our MPs and supporting equality for lesbian & gay people in our communities, victory could soon be in sight.

NDP Within Striking Distance of Canada's Liberals

Dear CBC National:
I am enjoying your coverage of the Gomery Commission and its impacts on Canadian politics, but I have some concerns that you are not providing Canadians with the full picture. Today all the TV news coverage was about the Conservatives sweeping past the Liberals. But there was nary a word about the NDP's fast movement forward. Indeed I had to go online to learn the New Democrats were only 5% behind the Liberals, which is almost within the margin of error of the Ekos poll-- meaning they could be neck and neck with the Liberals. Indeed the NDP are leading in British Columbia. Surely this very close "race for second" is equally newsworthy as the Conservative fortunes. To be fair you need to give all the numbers-- and not just those of the Liberals and Conservatives.  --Alan Rycroft, PEJ News

Security Certificates: is this Canada? PDF Print E-mail

Saturday, 09 April 2005 16:52
Under the CSIS (Canadian Security Intelligence Service) Certificate, Canada's spy agency has largely Muslim men or men of Middle Eastern or Arabic background thrown behind bars, without charges or bail, threatened with deportation to a country where they face torture or execution. Neither they nor their lawyers are allowed to see the "evidence" against them under the blanket claim of "national security." There is no appeal of the Federal Court ruling delivered by a CSIS-approved judge. The Campaign to Stop Secret Trials organizes court support, engages in research and political action and tries to provide support for the families of Canada's "disappeared." The campaign is rooted in anti-racist principles, and explicitly condemns Islamophobia, anti-semitism, and all related forms of religious and political intolerance.

Why You Should be Wary of Online Polls

PEJ News:
  The Globe and Mail online poll reports Canadians are split 50:50 on the question, "Should Jean Brault's testimony bring a non-confidence motion against the federal government," while the National Post Gomery Inquiry poll got a 99.76% anti-Liberal result.

Not to be outdone, we have introduced the unscientific PEJ News Poll on the right hand side of this and every page. We invite you to vote early and vote often.

Canada's Corruption Scandal Breaks Wide Open

Most of the illegal campaign contributions involved Brault either hiring ?employees? -- who were in fact working full time on Liberal Party activities -- or paying invoices for Liberal Party campaign expenses (which were never declared as such) or making untraceable cash donations to Liberal officials. In exchange for helping the federal Liberals in Quebec, Brault received millions of dollars in federal advertising contracts.

Reefer Mad Bush Pal to be Named Ambassador to Canada

South Carolinians know Republican state house Speaker, David Wilkins. He's been a staunch law and order southern-style politician who's crusaded for tougher sentencing and introduced anti-marijuana laws that have seen arrests of registered medical-marijuana users. - {lex}

Freeping on Gomery: Ottawa's Deep Secret Revealed [with update]

PEJ News: South of the border, the ban on information coming out of the Gomery Commission is casually disregarded. But, is this a case of unfettered info. flow, or the first steps in an engineered regime change for Canada? -{Lex}

The Gormery Commission today (Apr. 7) backed down from its publication ban on testimony from three key figures in the burgeoning Sponsorship scandal. Sighs of relief, for bloggers who've spent the week wondering if they would face contempt of court charges for reposting links to the American site that release what it claimed to be inside information on the inquiry. - {lex}

No Condoleezza Rice in Canada

PEJ News:
How did you feel about President George W. Bush coming into Canada and being welcomed by the Canadian government last fall? How are you going to feel when Secretary of State Condoleezza Rice shows up in April? Does anyone need to be reminded that these are leaders responsible for ongoing major violations of international law?
