To all our supporters in this charter challenge:
Donna and I had our court appearance on Monday Jan. 24th. Our cause was
well represented in the court room with lots of supporters.
It was almost embarrassing when we were finished, because the court room
almost emptied itself out! The judge definitely took notice when we all
left at the same time, proving the value of having people show up in
support -- it lets the courts know that this trial is significant!
Our next court appearance is set for April 25th.
The judge didn't want to delay the hearing any further than that date.
He appeared to be somewhat agitated that the crown hadn't given us full
disclosure yet. He very firmly TOLD the crown to make sure we have
disclosure by the end of March. He then looked at me and told me we
would have our disclosure and to be prepared to answer the charges and
to set a trial date when April 25th arrives.
On another note, I attended our local riding association meeting on
Sat. Jan. 22nd and was selected as one of the voting delegates to go to
the Conservative Policy convention in Montreal this coming March 17th.
This is where conservative members across the country get together to
decide on party policy.
I will take this responsibility seriously and make sure the concerns of
the people in this riding are heard. I want to help make sure that the
next government listens to the will of the people and acts accordingly.
This week I 'hit the road' with a cross country road tour. The goal is
to raise awareness of this important charter challenge and to raise the
funds necessary to be successful at it. I will send updates by this news
list to keep you all updated on the progress.
I would like to meet with as many concerned people as I can during this
cross country trip. If you or someone you know would like to host a
meeting while I'm touring, please let me know and I will do my best to
meet with your club, association, or concerned citizens from your
community. I will be checking my regular email account occasionally
while on the road: email@example.com
