[OPIRG-EVENTS] Website/Campaign Launch: Who is really protecting Canadian Taxpayers?

  The following is an early-announcement of a website launch and related
campaign. Please forward....

  In an interesting bit of irony, the same day the Canadian Taxpayers
Federation was sending out a press release to lobby to subsidize energy
and transportation related costs
<http://www.taxpayer.com/newsreleases/federal/May24-01.htm>, their
domain-namesake in the U.S. was sending out an opposing message in
relation to reducing energy subsidies, specifically the huge subsidies
handed out to the Nuclear industry:

  Tomorrow, on Clean Air Day, we hope to launch a counter-campaign in
Canada to stop the Canadian Taxpayers Association from increasing our
taxes.  The campaign is called the "Gas Subsidy Honesty Day", to counter
the mis-named CTF "Gas Tax Honesty Day" campaign.

  We hope to send out our launching press release later today, but thought
we would send some people advanced notice of the launch.
