Global Peace Initiatives

Before becoming a provincial politician I have been involved in a number of issues over the years related to anti-war, peace and development, and human rights or justice. I cannot sever my relationship with these vitally important values that have kept me sane and human and connected to people and organizations such as Physicians for Global Survival, Amnesty international, Doctors without Borders, and others. Yet, I find myself able to give as before and wish to keep some of these issues alive on my website for people to read and comment or become involved if they wish.

I welcome the opportunity to share these ideas and commitments to people and improving living conditions especially in areas of violence, environmental destruction and loss of civil society lest we forget our larger responsibility beyond the privilege and wealth of this province.

Obviously I cannot be as active in responding to all communications in these areas and do justice to my work for the citizens of Calgary Mountain View , but I will try to communicate as I am able.

Thank you for your commitment to peace and human rights here and everywhere.
