Odds and ends

Two things caught my attention:
  • Medea Benjamin and Colonel Ann Wright have officially been invited to speak at the Canadian Parliament, and are in contact with Canadian MPs. They are still not allowed to enter Canada yet, but I am hoping this will change soon.
  • On another Canadian note, four college students from Ontario were stranded in Washington DC, when their car was towed by the DC Police as "crime evidence," with no explanation given, with all their documents in it as evidence, while they attended a peace mobilization training. Democracy Cell Project's Dick Bell and Karen Bradley came to the rescue, housing the stranded Canadians for a week until they were able to retrieve their documents and return home. The car is still stranded, however.
The second story made the news at the Toronto Star.
