Glad to see that we have the mandatory strong ruthless woman threatening to crush her male opposition . Totally in sync with the new Hollywood.

HI; I hope that the movie does justice to the book - one thing it shows how groupthink can hold back and derail people from moving forward. The Peter Ballantyne Cree Nation - a SK First Nation recently held elections for Chief and Council and the results were a fiasco. The Head Electoral Officer did a lousy job not addressing issues that arose during the elections. On Thursday, May 5th, 2011, Chief candidate, Harold Linklater and Councilor candidate, Florence McKay, were denied their appeals and were not given the opportunity to address the PBCN Election Appeal Committee but Ted Merasty who's actions form the basis of the appeals was in and out of the meetings all day long. Is this fair? Harold's appeal was written by expoerienced legal counsel yet it seems to have been ignored by the Appeal Committee. Harold will be making an application to federal court in the near future. For more information please check out (www.vote4harold.com) and see where groupthink has gotten PBCN and its peoples? The question was where is John Galt - he certainly is not in PBCN where if you stand up and think for yourself you will be shunned and punished holds true. Thanks, D.
