TODAY VENEZUELA – This is for Canadians only living in Venezuela (and anywhere but Canada). Your help is needed to raise funds to launch an appeal to the Supreme Court of Canada to secure voting rights. In 1993, Canadians living abroad more than 5 years, had their right to vote withdrawn. For a while, Canadians were able to reset the 5-year clock by returning to Canada on vacation. That policy changed in 2011, effectively disenfranchising 1.4 million Canadians around the world. A lawsuit was filed in Ontario Superior Court 2012 by two Canadians living and working in the USA, resulting in a 2014 decision that the policy of restriction was unconstitutional – oh, we were so happy to get the vote back! Then, the federal government appealed...

TODAY VENEZUELA (AP) You can’t miss it, rising off the main highway, a mountain of toxic soot towering over the flat, sunbaked scrubland of eastern Venezuela. The buildup of petroleum byproduct known as coke isn’t just an environmental hazard polluting the air of neighboring communities. It’s a potent symbol of the waste and unfulfilled promise of an oil industry more vital than ever to Venezuela’s economic health. For years, state-run oil monopoly PDVSA exported coke to great profit. But a 2009 fire knocked out a conveyer belt used to transport it to waiting ships.
