    Bruce Hyer, one of our 'Green 18' candidates, helped establish several of Canada's great wilderness parks. Read his story about building and living in a log cabin in remote wilderness:

    I was so pleased to see that Geoff Regan was elected to be Speaker of the House or Commons. Geoff will do a good job. In 7 years of working with Geoff in the House, I found him to be bright, fair, pleasant, knowledgeable, firm when required, and very hard working. I have no doubt that he will do his best... and that will be very good indeed. I wish him luck in reining in the hecklers. That bothered me greatly when I was there. It is time for some real debate, whaich involves both speaking AND listening! Congrats to Geoff! A very welcome and needed change.

    I have been reflecting upon the terrorist events in Paris, reading and hearing about the reactions from worried Canadians and frantic media, and I wanted to try to put this into perspective as to what we should really fear . So I went to Stats Canada for data about the 10 leading causes of death in Canada, and compared those to the 505 homicides in Canada in 2013. I made a spreadsheet, and found that compared to the probability of death by homicide (1.44/100,000 population), there are many other causes in Canada that rank far, far higher: Malignant neoplasms (Cancer) (X 20,791) Diseases of heart (heart disease) (x 13,663) Cerebrovascular diseases (stroke) (x 3,810) Chronic lower respiratory diseases (x 3,208) Accidents (unintentional injuries) (x 3,974) Diabetes mellitus (diabetes) Alzheimer's disease Influenza and pneumonia Intentional self-harm (suicide) (x 1,069) Nephritis, nephrosis (kidney disease) Homicides ( X 1.0 ) If this year there were an additional 505 homicides in Canada due to terrorists, and we compared that potential statistic to the 10 leading causes of death here, potential terrorism pales in contrast to the these 10 leading causes of death in Canada. E.g. - You are more than 1000 x more likely to commit suicide than die by one of the 505 annual homicides. - You are almost 4,000 x more likely to die by accident (mostly automotive) - and the BIG ONE: you are almost 21,000 x more likely to die of cancer. (After WW II, your chance of dying of cancer was about 1 in 7, usually in old age; today your chance of a cancer death is about 50% if male, and 33% if female, increasingly that is at younger and younger ages, even often in childhood.) So if we REALLY want to worry about things that are really likely to kill us here are we should be doing: - More resources for treating mental illness - Getting serious about the risks of smoking and air pollution and resulting respiratory diseases - Getting serious about one of the most dangerous addictions we suffer from: driving cars - Getting serious about reducing and preventing the additives (both intended and un-intended) to air, food, and water that are causing cancer in ourselves and our friends and loved ones, at a rate of almost 30,000 people per 100, 000 annual deaths in Canada each year. I am at least 20,791 times more worried about I or my family dying of cancer than I am about being shot or blown up.

    I received a very nice email from a respected friend: "Congratulations on your hard and well-fought campaign. You deserved a better outcome given what you accomplished for the long-term benefit of the region, particularly the North Shore. Losing hurts but I hope you will be proud of a more important victory - upholding your personal values in the face of inordinate pressure to conform. Stay true to those values and continue your fight to preserve Mother Earth for succeeding generations. Well done! Bob" Thanks Bob!
