"This may be *the* seminal book of the [Quebec] Referendum" - OTTAWA CITIZEN, 16 October, 1995.
[Please *assist* the Cree and Native peoples of Canada by re-posting this Appeal *quickly and widely* to Internet Newsgroups, Conferences, and mailing lists. THE QUEBEC REFERENDUM, which will *vitally* affect the future and fortunes of the Cree and Indian Nations, is *next Monday* - October 30th! Over 96% of the Cree have voted in their *own* Referendum recently to stay with Canada - Quebec has *denied* them this *in advance*]
