Weekly Meeting - Stockwell Day - Leader of the Alliance Party

Stockwell Day spoke to the changes in our lives since September 11th, our responsibilities as Canadians, as a country, as an ally, as well as, the challenges - the challenges of leading the Opposition Party in such a time; of walking the fine line of being supportive and still providing constructive criticism as the opposition; the challenge of taking care of critical internal issues such as the softwood lumber crisis, the agricultural crisis, and ecomonic stability, at the same time as dealing with the urgency of developing antiterrorist protection for Canada and working with our allies to fight world terrorism; and, the need to develop strong external borders to protect Canada at the same time as tying to minimize the internal borders. A thoughtful, intelligent dialogue he reiterated the need for nonpartisanship at this time - a time for Canada to stand strong and united.

Thought for the Week: Experts tell us that the biggest anti-aging device is staying in shape. My mother started walking five miles a day when she was 60. She's 97 now and we have no idea where she is!
