    Yesterday, as the world marks the 70th anniversary of the liberation of Nazi death camp Auschwitz-Birkenau, our Leader Tom Mulcair rose in the House of Commons to poignantly reflect on the horrors of the Holocaust: Mr. Speaker, today we stand together to commemorate the Holocaust, humanity's darkest hour. We remember the millions of mothers, fathers, brothers and sisters who were targeted by evil, including my wife's family. We remember these children whose bright eyes were shut too early and we remember the 70th anniversary of the liberation of Auschwitz. That day, humanity did more than put out a horrible fire. We revived the flame of the human spirit. The contrary of love is not hate, it’s indifference. Let’s never wallow in indifference based on the poison of anti-Semitism and intolerance in all its forms. New Democrats stand with those who wish to build a better Canada, one of diversity and peace, and so against hate and indifference, we will work tirelessly so that this can never happen again. And we will build a world where love will prevail.

    It was also a pleasure to meet with folks from a local justice group in Nelson – Shannon Nichvolodoff, Stacy and John Devires and Dean Siminoff. They explained to me the work currently being done by the International Justice Mission (IJM) to free the captives of modern day slavery. I hope to attend the Pete Seiger Memorial Concert on 31 Jan to support the work of IJM at the Junction Church 2840 Eden Road (formerly the Playmor Dance Hall

    "Here's a small example of one of the many many things the Harper government could be doing to promote reduction in fossil fuel consumption. Instead they have subsidized the oil and gas industry in every way possible, and are now reaping the results of such a backward, unbalanced strategy. When the price of oil collapses, and you've bet the farm on oil, the entire country suffers," says Dick Canning, NDP candidate South Okanagan West Kootenay.

    Thought I'd share what Kevin Page had to say about the government's 'fiscal management' during his speech to the NDP caucus.

    It was a pleasure to spend some time with our SOWK federal NDP candidate Dick Cannings and his wife Margaret Holm in Penticton. [Photo 1] Dick is a great candidate who will represent us well should he have the honour to be elected. Dick and I also had the pleasure to tour one of the most sustainable buildings in the world at the Okanagan College campus in Penticton. The building is a "living laboratory" as part of the Living Building Challenge. This campus is the second largest trades training institution in BC. A huge thanks to Pesident Jim Hamilton and Campus Dean Donna Lomas [Photo 2] for taking time to arrange our visit. Bravo Okanagan College! It was also a pleasure to spend some time Wed with newly elected mayor of Grand Forks, Frank Konrad As well as the new mayor of Greenwood Ed Smith and Vicki Gee new RDKB Director. Among other issues, we discussed the deer problem in Grand Forks, affordable housing and guidelines for the Trans-Canada Trail. It was also a pleasure to see Fred Marshall in Greenwood!
