RUSHING TO ARMAGEDDON, Paul Martin and George W. Bush's Star Wars a public talk 
by Mel Hurtig
 

Mel Hurtig will be at Innis College, Town Hall on Tuesday, March 9 at 7:30 p.m. 
to talk about the American National Missile Defence (NMD) plans, what they mean 
for Canada and the world.

 

Mr. Hurtig will discuss Canada?s role in the confrontational US policies of 
today?s political climate. He firmly believes Canada should not get involved in 
this escalation of nuclear proliferation and destabilization. Such polices only 
lead to a growing danger of nuclear war. The Bush military agenda is not about 
the defense of North America, rather is it centered on the desires of Bush, 
Rumsfield and the Pentagon to weaponize and control space. Paul Martin?s 
liberal government is lying to Canadians concerning the National Missile 
Defense (NMD) program. Mr. Hurtig will outline why the NMD will not work 
despite the expenditure of hundreds of billions of dollars. The real threat is 
terrorism, a threat that the NMD will not be able to protect North America 
from. Why would Canada abandon its long-established support of peace, 
disarmament and multilateral agreements? He will also examine the role election 
donations plays in Canada?s military decisions and what effects American 
interference will have on Canada and the world. 

 

Mel Hurtig is an Officer of the Order of Canada and has been awarded honourary 
degrees by six Canadian universities.  Among his many other awards and honours, 
are the Lester B. Pearson Man of the Year Peace Award, the Speaker of the Year 
Award, the Royal Society of Canada?s Centenary Medal, and, on two occasions, 
the Canadian Book Publisher of the Year award.  He has been Chairman of the 
Board of the Canadian Booksellers Association, the National Chairman of the 
Committee for an Independent Canada, and is the founder and former Chairman of 
the Council of Canadians.  Mel Hurtig also founded and published The Canadian 
Encyclopedia.  He is the author of several bestselling books, including The 
Betrayal of Canada, Pay the Rent or Feed the Kids, his autobiography At 
Twilight in the Country and The Vanishing Country.

 

Who:  Mel Hurtig

What:  A public talk, RUSHING TO ARMAGEDDON, Paul Martin and George W. Bush's 
Star Wars

When: Tuesday, March 9
Time:     7:30 p.m.

Where:  Innis College, Town Hall, 2 Sussex Avenue (One block south of Bloor on
