"I've stopped contributing to virtually all major environmental groups," said Brussard, former Society for Conservation Biology president and a University of Nevada, Reno, professor. "My frustration is the mailbox," he said. "Virtually every day you come home, there are six more things from environmental groups saying that if you don't send them fifty bucks, the gray whales will disappear or the wolf reintroductions in Yellowstone will fail ...You just get super-saturated. "To me, as a professional biologist, it's not conspicuous what most of these organizations are doing for conservation. I know that some do good, but most leave you with the impression that the only thing they are interested in is raising money for the sake of raising money."
In an attempt to save money, Nixon had delayed pay raises to federal employees by 6 months, which resulted in a national postal worker’s strike. Nixon yielded to the postal workers commands and un-did some of the budget balancing that Arthur Burns had required. During the 1970 elections, Republicans had picked up two seats in the senate but lost nine seats in the house. Nixon blamed this defeat on the economy and it continued to deteriorate. Despite Nixon’s New Economic Policy that began in August 1971, the economic downturn had resumed in 1973.
Confederation: Reaction from the Colonies Nova Scotia When Nova Scotian delegates like Charles Tupper returned home from the Quebec Conference, they were met with trouble. Opposition leaders, especially Joseph Howe, were stirring up hostility against a union. One of the 72 resolutions was to grant a subsidy (financial support) based on population to each of the provinces from the central government every year and Nova Scotia’s portion only amounted to forty cents per person. Joseph Howe and many others objected to this agreement saying, “Tupper has sold us out to central Canada for a grant of forty cents per person – the price of a sheepskin.” They were worried that the Canadians would dominate the new government because of their size and

In the 1980’s the red snapper fishery threatened to collapse entirely. In August, 1991, the first closing of the red snapper fishery by the Federal Government had come. The closure apparently had a beneficial effect on snapper mortality because when they reopened in January the catch rates were much higher than expected. Fisherman then interpreted the high catch rates as an indication that the red snapper population was healthier than government scientist believed. With the fisherman objecting to the closure, the fishery was reopened for one month in April.

On May 15, 1919, 24,000 organized and unorganized workers in Winnipeg walked off the job. Another 6,000 would soon join them. It was the start of the largest strike in Canadian history, and political leaders at all levels were quick to act.

In a 1969 CBC Radio documentary commemorating the strike, lawyer Jim Walker talks about Ottawa's new laws.

Peta concludes that this is a Canada’s shame. In “Dog and cat abuse: Animal negligence”, there is no violent or image of abusing acts. The publisher just persuaded viewers through the messages that are directly shown on top of the background of cute dogs.

Suddenly, every medical procedure and situation is going to come down to a political battle. The compromises that result will put in controls that limit patient options. The universal system in Canada forces patients to wait over 6 months for a routine pap smear.
