Canada Being Assimilated Into a U.S. Dominated North American Security Perimeter - by Dana Gabriel
The perimeter security deal is being sold as vital to improving the flow of trade and travel across the border. In order to appease U.S. fears, Canada has made numerous concessions with no guarantees that it will lessen border restrictions. As part of a North American security perimeter, Canada will always be at the mercy of any new U.S. security measures, regardless of the dangers they may pose to privacy and civil liberties.

Statewide Coalition Sues to Halt Delta Plan, Water Export Tunnels - by Dan Bacher
“The Delta Reform Act gave the Delta Stewardship Council an historic opportunity to remedy 40 years of water policy failures. Instead, the council failed to use the best available science - biological or economic - and adopted a status quo program that fails to fix the Delta or the water supply problem,” said Santa Barbara resident Carolee Krieger, executive director of the California Water Impact Network (C-WIN), a statewide water advocacy organization. “The council failed to honor its...

Why Would They Do That Exactly? - by Sudhama Ranganathan
There are as many unique and varied political views, as there are people themselves. No matter how deep the divide there is almost some issue most people can find some agreement on. No matter how alike in philosophy or perspective, there is usually at least one issue people might not see exactly eye to eye on. Differences between sincere public servants are good, especially when it comes to legislating, because that means it will bring together different views on a wide range of issues, he...

Can you imagine naming Bay Bridge after Election Frauder, Murderer? - by Register Peace & Freedom or Green
It is not enough that the eastern span has taken 24 years and counting to replace, and it is filled with deadly bolts that must be replaced. Now, the California Legislature is proposing to name the western span after the worst mayor in San Francisco and a proud pro-landlord, pro-gambling assemblyperson, Democrat Willie Brown, whose last fling in San Francisco was to perpetrate election fraud in every election from 1995 and every election thereafter, including the 49er Stadium Swindle election...

It is vitally important to fight this privatizat...

Statewide Campaign Launched to Defeat Governor Brown's $54.1 Billion Water Tunnels Project - by Dan Bacher
The State has a history of underestimating the costs of major water projects. In 1991 Santa Barbara County voters approved the Coastal Aqueduct at an estimated cost of $270 million. Thus far the aqueduct has cost nearly $1.7 billion and has proven to be unnecessary to meet the County's water needs. "California ratepayers and taxpayers should expect the same bad deal with the twin-tunnels," said Carolee Krieger, executive director of the California Water Impact Network. "Just like the aqued...

A Year Later, Youth Programs Still Waiting on City Bicycles - by The Bike Church
Since 1996 the City has distributed unclaimed bicycles to youth in need through nonprofits like the Bike Church and Barrios Unidos. Early last year they abrubptly ended this program and have given bikes instead to a for-profit business called the Bike Dojo, which should not even be allowed under City code to participate in the program, and which has sold many of the bicycles, also in violation of the Municipal Code. Despite admitting these problems, the City continues to distribute bikes to t...
