Cree & Michif Media Representatives
CBC wants to cover the Green Party, "en francais". Many thanks
to Paul-Emile (White Fox) for his willingness to be our
spokesperson for this. Provincially, Paul-Emile is in
Saskatchewan Rivers, federally in
Desnethi-Missinippi-Churchill River. He will likely be called
upon for both the Provincial Election and for the Federal
by-election in the North.
It is very important that we
find Indigenous and Metis people who would be willing to do
interviews with the media. If you are interested, please let
Sandra know as the federal by-election in
Desnethi-Missinippi-Churchill River may happen soon. We have
enough connections to Metis and Cree people among us, to be
able to recommend people who would act as our representatives
on Indigenous media in particular (but not excluding
mainstream media, and not excluding Indigenous and Metis
persons who are unilingual English-speaking, like so many of

From black-and-white to the colours of the
rainbow. It's exciting to be introducing the attractive
e-newsletter with images, links and less text. This is wholly
the initiative and work of Nathan Risling (Saskatoon), another
of our new young people. It required the support of our
long-time webmaster, Gerald Regnitter, in Christopher Lake. On
behalf of the Greens in the province, many thanks to you
We will continue with the black-and-white version
- it suits the needs of some, better. Images do not pass
through some spam filters, unless the receiver sets the filter
to accept the emails from this particular sender.
we have two distributions: - plain text - the coloured version
with links and images. Please let me know if you wish to try

Supporter List Update
Two new young fellows, Adrien Leduc and Keilah
Martin (Saskatoon), volunteered time to look up the federal
and provincial electoral districts for individuals on the
supporter list. It takes time. The rural areas, Moose Jaw and
Prince Albert, and half of Regina and Saskatoon are completed.
180 records remain to be done.
I doubt that Adrien and
Keilah appreciate the significance of their contribution. We
can generate a list of supporters by constituency. This is
incredibly helpful to the local areas, but also to me as I
connect groups of supporters. It was so frustrating before. We
now have wings - we can fly!
Well! why on earth would I
now ask you to go out and find some more people to add to our
supporter list?! Just when the job is nearing completion!
Should I tell you the bad part? ... it turns out that
Outlook, small business version (through which I've run the
distribution lists using the address book) has a size
limitation. The thoughts of losing data is frightening! Things
are under control but clumsy, using a combination of
spreadsheet and Outlook to accommodate lists, in addition to
the Green one. Fortunately we have people with experience, the
ability to track down and evaluate alternatives for the data
base which is our lifeline.
Possible Fall Provincial
We would like to get 58 candidates for the 58
constituencies so that EVERYONE in Saskatchewan who wants to
vote Green, can do so. Our percentage vote gets watered down
if we can't collect our votes because we're short on
candidates. A good showing in the election is the best way to
tell the Government that we won't sit back while they take us
down the wrong roads. More
Election Procedures Manual
During an election, Lin Norton and Jane
Anweiler (Regina) will be a central place for fielding the
questions like "how do I do this?", or "who do I contact for
They are as "green" as me and many others.
First time around in an election. But hey! we are a merry
group of adventurers who will come through in shining colours
with the support of long-time Party members! We (I?!) was in
quite a state. I didn't even know that we had a phone with an
answering machine in a little office in Regina. With mail
coming to the same office (the Provincial Office)!
is truly rewarding to be in this role of "leader" among
leaders. The Green Party attracts terrific people! Lin jumped
into the organization of the Regina office and group. And
brought along her friend Jane Anweiler. Jane brings experience
with Procedures, recognized the contribution that
documentation can make, and, bless her heart said, "I'd like
to do that.". Ever since, she is on the "copy to" list of many
an internal email.
An election will be chaotic enough
without a central clearing house for fielding the "how to"
questions. Muchas gracias to Lin and Jane - have no fear!
We'll all be working with you!
