Participants needed for research in abortion debate

I am looking for volunteers who have knowledge of  abortion politics in the Maritime Provinces from the period 1969 to 1999. 

As a participant in this study, you have the option to: answer a questionnaire; and/or share your opinions and experiences through an interview. Some questions are of a personal nature and participants may skip them. For example, there are questions at the end of the survey that ask participants if they terminated a pregnancy between 1969 and 1999 and if they travelled far for the abortion.  These questions are meant to determine the availability of abortion services during this period.

PEI story looking for National Coverage (who isn't!)

PEI has experienced a watershed event this passed weekend and protesters are looking for ways to get this story some National visibility. Any ideas would be appreciated.  For over a year folks have been opposing an Atlantic Gateway project, to reroute a section of our Trans Canada Highway. The project is rife with accusations of patronage, the gov't refuses to release the safety statistics upon which it built it's case for this project, our gov't is deep in debt and continues to mispend, and this past weekend protesters were forceably removed by police when they decided to peacefully occupy the public land on which the work was proceeding. Here are some links if anyone wants to see a glimpse. Ideas on how to boost national coverage greatly appreciated.
