*Announcing the Formation of the Committee for Freedom of Expression (FOE)
* A committee of citizens concerned about preserving freedom of expression and free press in Powell River was formed on February 1, 2007. The committee's mandate is to raise funds to help the "Watchdog", Patricia Aldworth, with legal expenses incurred by the libel suit brought against her by Dave Formosa.
The Watchdog, an email newsletter has provided a needed critical analysis and satire of local government politics.
"Freedom of expression is a fundamental human right that is essential to honesty in politics. I want to ensure that Patricia receives all the resources she needs for a fair trial." said Dr. Michael Thoms.
Stay tuned for information about an upcoming Benefit Bash for the Watchdog. To get involved email firstname.lastname@example.org <mailto:email@example.com> or call (604) 483-9008 or
