This week's program spotlights two aspects of Canada's relationship with the United States in the face of an aggressive US Defense apparatus.

The first involves the situation with US soldiers who fled military service in Iraq for reasons of conscience. Several are now headed back to Federal Court challenging a ruling in favour of them being allowed to stay in Canada. MIchelle Robidoux of the War Resisters Support Campaign makes the case for cancelling this litigation and shares her disappointment with the Liberal government's stance.
IN the second half hour, Sandra Finley, a community activist originally from Saskatchewan talks about her concerns about the Canadian Census and particularly Statistics Canada's Contracting partner Lockheed Martin. The former leader of the Saskatchewan Green Party claims that despite StatsCan assurances, personal information cannot be kept private from LM and the US Security State. She states that the Charter of Rights and Freedoms protects Canadians from having to disclose private personal information. She also raises concerns about how the groundwork for a global police state is being rolled out through this technology and centralized control of information.
