Subject: [CCC] A note from Senator Milne

Dear friends:

I found out this morning that the House of Commons will not deal with
S-13 before they rise for the summer break. As you all know, they made
several attempts to get it debated over the last few days, but were
unsuccessful. The rest of the agenda is now booked with other bills
including campaign finance reform and the ethics package that must get
through before the end of the summer. I am extremely disappointed with
this delay in our on-going campaign.

I urge all members of the CCC to start a new email and letter campaign
to their MPs at the beginning of September. There is not much point in
writing right now because your letters will be long forgotten by the
time the fall rolls around. You should write in the week or two leading
up to the resumption of Parliament on September 15th. We have been
working hard for almost one solid year now, and we can all use the
summer to rest and recharge our batteries.

I also want to congratulate Lois Sparling on her renewed attempt to get
the courts to rule that Stats Canada must release the 1911 census. She
has my 100% support in her endeavour. I have also been really pleased
to see how many of you have filed ATI requests asking for the 1911
census. Do keep them coming.

I'm sorry that I don't have better news for you, but I promise that as
things develop, I will keep you posted.

Yours truly,

Hon. Lorna Milne
