Action Items; DEbriefing Retreat

The retreat was really something. Start thinking of sustainable communities in the Baja. It is the place to be. I suppose there are other great places in Mexico and Belize and Central America, but you can't beat the Baja for being so close to US and Canada and not really being THAT Mexican. Mexico lite as my friend calls it. Contact me to find out more about these affordable places to live where your water and food and energy are all sustainable. We will be building these places starting now. You can't beat the price either. For somewhere around 50,000 you can live in paradise with a concious community and have your own land, water, energy and garden.

SAVE THE CBC AGAIN The Canadian government has refused to provide loans (but they are bailing out the private media giants) to the CBC to cover its budget shortfall this year. This is forcing the CBC and Radio Canada to drastically cut over 800 jobs as well as programming. The CBC is asking for temporary loans amounting to just $6 per Canadian, or less than 2 pennies a day for each of us. We can make this happen, so let's pull out all the stops to deliver a massive petition to Parliament and Save the CBC! sign the petition -------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- Keep British Columbia's River's Wild Cambell is selling out our waterways to private overseas interests.
