JCT: Thank you Evan. I do. It's interesting that my Abolitionist
Party of Canada has those same two programs on our party program at
crucial information on our web page and we also got 10,000 votes in
our first outing in 1993.
Any chance on providing us with an email address or web site?

JCT: You betcha it's happening all around the world. When I first
started out 20 years ago, the very words "abolish interest" raised
the thought of a physical impossibility in most people's minds. It's
why a reporter once caught Her Majesty the Queen mouthing the words
"Abolish Interest" on one of my picket signs during one of her tours
in the early 1980s. It was an unheard of concept except to a few
Bible and Koran exegetes. Now it barely raises an eyebrow. How things
have changed.
