Centurion and the Goverment of Canada to begin consultations

By Melvin J. Howard

The Government of Canada has responded back to a request of consultation in a letter dated August 25, 2008. We shall now prepare in accordance with Article 1118 of NAFTA to move forward with this process.

Update to last entry:

Canada to call election

OTTAWA - Prime Minister Stephen Harper will launch a federal election campaign Sunday with a visit to the Governor General. Sources say Harper will meet with Michaelle Jean at 9 a.m. ET and ask her to dissolve Canada's 39th Parliament, with an election on Oct. 14. As Canadian elections seem imminent Centurion will halt consultations proceedings until after the new Government is installed. At that time Centurion will proceed if after the consultations there appears to be no resolution we will move to go to arbitration.
