Causes of Death, Canada (1992), by sex


July 28, 2002, I was made aware of a press release issued by Shelternet.

The press release stated:

Shelternet to be launched on August 13, 2002!

Among women aged 15-44 worldwide, gender based violence accounts for more death and ill health than cancer, traffic injuries and malaria combined.

-World Bank Report, UNIFEM Press Release 2000-

Thank you to the following supporters who are making the dream of Shelternet a reality:

The Canadian Business Magazine
The Canadian Women's Foundation
The Centre for Research on Violence
Against Women and Children, UWO
Fairmont Hotels & Resorts
Mary Kay Cosmetics
The Ministry of Citizenship
(The Volunteer @ction.online program)
The National Crime Prevention Centre
Pangaea NewMedia
The Rural Secretariat
TELUS
The Trillium Foundation

A few logos shown at the end of the release are not readily identifiable with any of the organizations contained in the preceding list.  They belong to the Governments of Canada, to Ontario (the Government of Ontario, I presume) and to the Women's Community House.  None of the organizations listed are known to be family-friendly.  Some of them, including the Government of Canada, are outright family-hostile.

One of the sponsors listed is TELUS, a Canadian (now largely foreign-owned) telecommunications company that, a little over ten years ago, came into existence through the privatization of Alberta Government Telephones.   TELUS eventually bought out Edmonton Telephones and BC Telephones.  During its new existence as a private corporate entity, TELUS performed so exceedingly poorly that it had to save itself from financial disaster once by laying off 6,000 of its employees (then about half of its work force).  TELUS is now in the process of doing that again.   It announced that it has to lay off 6,000 of its  employees (one quarter of its combined work force), apparently to make them pay for its poor management decisions that saw its bond ratings drop from AAA to BB, just one step away from junk-bond performance.

Why would TELUS, apparently slated to go under or at least to enter the Nirvana of corporate oblivion, feel that it needs to scrape together the funding required to support a hare-brained scheme by radical gender activists?  Citizens of Alberta and British Columbia, not radical feminists from Ontario, provide the lion's share of TELUS' operating revenues.

More about the context of the scheme is shown after the contact information from the press release:
