Birthday Bash for Bush

Prime Minister Stephen Harper will be in Washington Thursday, July 6th, which coincides with George W. Bush’s birthday. Join Maude Barlow and the Council of Canadians at a birthday bash for George Bush in front of the PMO, where we'll ask Stephen Harper to limit his generosity to a card and good wishes.

Our government has already handed Bush our troops for use in his "war on terror." We signed away our right to energy security in NAFTA. Harper’s letting Bush keep $1-billion worth of the lumber tariffs the U.S. government took from us illegally. And Bush knows he need only ask before we hand over our fresh water, too.

The Council of Canadians fears that Harper will further compromise Canadian sovereignty in areas of foreign policy, trade and security, and we hope to raise awareness about how much the Prime Minister has sacrificed without public consent during his short reign.
Show Harper you can be a good neighbour without giving it all away.

What: A birthday party for Dubya (free cake and loot bags!)
Where: Outside the PMO, in front of the NCC Info Centre at Wellington and Metcalfe
When: Thursday, July 6, noon to 1 p.m. (bring sunscreen, noisemakers and a party hat!)
Why: Because we can, because it’s fun, and because we’re sick of giving pieces of Canada away
Who: Come one, come all. This is a Council of Canadians party and everyone’s invited!

Greetings Ariel,
I would love to see your journalistic expertise
review the past five years on that lesson in the
politics of failure, the Federal Medical cannabis
program. The excellent study just released by the
Canadian Aids Society suggests the Auditor General
investigate this program, except millions have been
wasted, years have been wasted, and many people have
died fighting to have access to a medicine that helps.
There is something wrong in Ottawa when tax paying,
law abiding chronically sick, terminally ill Canadian
citizens can't get their federal gov't which has been
mandated by the supreme court to do the right thing.
Licence and regulate the remedy: the compassion club
model the CSA recommends in the study demonstrated by
VICS, and the BCCCS, www.thecompassionclub.org.
Sincerely, George Bailey

PS. I realize this is not specifically to do with Bush
