Statement on the passing of Barbara Ann Scott
Statement by Paul Dewar on the passing of Barbara Ann Scott
"I was deeply saddened to learn of the passing of Barbara Ann Scott – a great Canadian athlete, an inspiration for all Canadians and a fellow Ottawan.
Her many contributions to Canadian athletics, through her successes on and off the ice, and her dedication to her hometown of Ottawa have made her a great role model for all those who wish to pursue their passions and to give back to their communities.
I extend my sympathies to Ms. Scott's friends and family. While we will miss her dearly, her memory will live on through the triumphs of those that she touched, encouraged and inspired."

Lawful Access Bill (C-30) Treats Law Abiding Citizens like Criminals
Many Canadians are rightfully disturbed about the Conservative government's latest misguided legislation, which would give authorities the power to access their personal information without a warrant at any time, for any reason.
Bill C-30 is a compilation of three bills from the last parliamentary session (C-50, C-51 and C-52). The bill requires telecommunication service providers, like internet providers, to provide designated authorities (police forces, RCMP, CSIS and the Commissioner of Competition) with access to the personal information of their subscribers.
