      Coast to coast to coast in Canada, East to West, South to the North
      Pole, every newscast has a piece on the group now in Texas seeking
      a stay in Execution for a Canadian whom Texas never even told the
      Embassy he was charged. Yet he's been on Death Row for over twenty
      years. Canada's Foreign Minister asked Secretary of State Madeline
      Albright to request a meeting of this group with Governor Bush
      and he has passed on the request to the Parole/Pardon Board who
      have agreed to meet with the group this coming Wednesday, day before
      the execution. One in the Group is David Milgard's mother whose
      son was recently freed from nearly 25 years of prison when DNA
      proved him innocent. Also, Archbishop Desmond Tutu has written
      to Gov. Bush supporting the appeal.

      Also, today is the tenth Anniversary of LePin's Massacre of 14
      women at L'Ecole Poloytechnique in Montreal and the end of the first
      week of full gun registration in Canada.
