Don't forget, watch TV this morning if you can.

There's also an online poll about the war resisters on the CTV website. Please take a minute to show your support.

At my convocation last night Cathy Crowe was awarded an honourary doctorate for her work as a street nurse*. In her address about how she stays inspired to do the work she does, she highlighted the vicory in the House of Commons of the War resisters last week. I thanked her particularily for that part when I got to cross the stage. She also wondered to Prime Minister Harper how so much money ruining homes in Afghanistan when we have a housing catastrophe here in Canada.

The speech was good thanks! It was earlier in the week though. I'll blog on it somewhere along the way when I get all bloggy again... Glad to hear the party was a hit and a success, we'll get there someday! Jen

I was working this morning so I missed Canada AM, but I did vote in the poll. I am always discouraged because these polls so often seem to be dominated by conservatives. But I was pleased to see that it was about 55% in favour of the resisters when I voted in the afternoon, and I was surprised to see right now that it has jumped to more than 60%.

Online polls are entirely meaningless. Campaign leadership likes to push them, so I do - and it's easy enough to get people to click on them - but I personally don't see the point.
