I just spoke to the office of my MP Ted Menzies. The women there said it is
best to deal directly with the Senator in question. For other matters
emails get forwarded on to the critic of the particular problem.
She said she would make Ted aware of my concern about Lynch-Staunton and see
if he can bring the matter up in caucus when the Senator is present.
If he gets bombarded with emails, letters and calls and other conservative
MPs do as well, he will have to defend his position.
She also stated the Party had not made a decision in support or denial of
Bill-S18. Apparently there are still some concerns????? Seems to be some
confusion here about what is being reported. She could be wrong.
So, it would be a good idea to inundate John Lynch-Staunton's office about

A contributor to the Canadian Census Release Mailing List has just posted a
message that refers us to:
The wording is:
38th Parliament, 1st Session
The Standing Committee on Industry, Natural Resources, Science and
Technology has the honour to present its
In accordance with its Order of Reference of Monday, June 13, 2005, your
Committee has considered Bill S-18, An Act to amend the Statistics Act, and
agreed on Thursday, June 16, 2005, to report it without amendment.
A copy of the relevant Minutes of Proceedings (Meetings Nos. 43 and 44) is
BRENT ST. DENIS
It is a big relief that the Bill was sent back to the Commons without
amendment. The next step, as I understand it, is to have Third Reading of
the Bill passed by the House of Commons, following which we SHOULD have
access to the 1911 Canadian census.
I expect that Gordon Watts will let us have his comments later today and I
will pass them on to you. In the meantime, if my reading of the situation is
incorrect no doubt Lois Sparling will let us know.
Keep your fingers crossed that all this can be processed before the summer
- Hello all! - just got home to hear the good news - Bill S-18 has passed today - thanks to all who signed petitions over and over, and especially to Lois for all your effort - and to all who contributed financially when Lois put out the call.Freda Stewart
