The Mailbag
- 2007 - A Selection of Letters Received at our Office

December 22, 2006

Rescheduled! See below:

We have rescheduled the Eastern Shore discussion for Thursday January 25th at 7:00 P.M. at the Oyster Pond Fire Hall, Oyster Pond. (Turn left on 150 Old Trunk Road, off Highway #7)

Ms. Gail Martin

Dear Ms. Martin:

As you may be aware, in April 2007, the Greater Halifax Partnership and the Halifax RDA will no longer operate as two, separate economic development organizations. In their place will be one New Entity, with one board, one focus, one mission, one sense of vision, and one goal: to deliver economic growth that serves the community – the whole community – of HRM.

As part of our efforts to ensure a smooth transition to this New Entity, we are seeking your views as part of a series of roundtable discussions. The primary purpose is to draw upon the experience and perspective of those who are making things happen in HRM; those whose ideas can help drive economic and community development.

Why? Because we believe it is important to consult the people who have a vested interest in how our regional economy will grow. You have been identified as one of these people, and we would benefit from the opportunity to sit and listen to you and your fellow stakeholders.

We hope you will join us for this intimate, informal discussion Tuesday, January 16, 2007 at 7:00 p.m. at Centre By The Sea, 9411 #7 Highway Musquodoboit Harbour

(approximately 1km east of the West Jeddore Rd)

We are interested in your views and the cross-pollination of ideas that naturally occurs when people gather in a room for conversation. What we discuss will be captured and used to inform our thinking. You will not be identified in any way to others outside the meeting. This is to ensure that those taking part feel confident to engage in open and candid dialogue.

Please confirm you attendance with Heather Blakeney, or 490-6000 by January 5.

Sincerely yours,

Stephen Dempsey

President and CEO

Council of Canadians
As a government and corporate watchdog, the Council offers a critical voice on key national issues. Since 2004, the Council has focused on fighting deeper economic integration with the United States. This includes building popular opposition to the Security and Prosperity Partnership of North America, an agreement reached by Canada, the U.S. and Mexico in 2005, that is paving the way for Canada to integrate our security measures with those of the United States, surrender control of our energy supplies, sell off our water, and harmonize our medical drug testing policies with lower U.S. standards.

TheCouncil of Canadians has run highly influential citizen campaigns against cutbacks and changes to Canada's system of public pensions, the proposed mergers of four of the country's biggest banks, and the introduction of Bovine Growth Hormone into the nation's milk supply. The Council has also worked with groups and individuals across the country to fight the alarming concentration of media ownership in Canada. More recently, the Council has launched campaigns to prevent the bulk export of Canada's fresh water and to protect Canada's public health care system from privatization.
