I'm white - don't know what kind of white, some kind of Anglo Saxon, but certainly not native (although I tan really well), and  in University I learned a lot about the Indian Act and the history of First Nations people in Canada, and I naturally felt sorry for their plight. The theft of their children, the erradication of their languages, and the systematic assimilation of their way of life is a disgrace to the Canadian self image which continues to this day, and is arguably accelerating.

You are invited to help build The Lethbridge Declaration - a grassroots Federal NDP campaign built by progressive Prairie people who want to live in an inclusive Canada that leaves no one behind, who feel urgent action is needed to push back on the direction Stephen Harper and the Conservatives are taking Canada, and who want to be involved in making that change happen.

Rob Clarke, the Conservative MP for Desnethé-Missinippi-Churchill River, has been silent on Parks Canada's decision to stop grooming ski trails in Prince Albert National Park, and we've taken notice. Marianne Hladun, Regional Executive Vice-President for the PSAC Prairie Region, wrote him a letter to voice her concerns.

Bill C-377, a private member's bill that directly attacks unions by driving up operating costs unnecessarily, is moving ahead with full force and will go to a final vote next week on Wednesday, December 12. If passed, this senseless legislation would be detrimental to all working families and crush many smaller unions and labour organizations in the process, who will be unable to keep up with the expensive and onerous requirements.

Stephen Harper's Conservatives are determined to ram through Bill C-377, a private members' bill that will force every union to file intrusive financial reports that will be posted on a public website for every employer to see. We need your help now to stop this bill in its tracks!

Employment Insurance is just that - insurance that you pay for, every paycheck. When you lose your job through no fault of your own, you should have access to the benefits you paid for! But fewer than 4 in 10 unemployed Canadians qualify for EI benefits. Stephen Harper's changes to EI are hurting Canadians just when they need Employment Insurance the most. Is that fair?
