Election 2012

As a founder of this organization and a member in good standing, I am putting forth this call for nominations for the democratic election of officers to the executive body of the organization. As a member of SCOUT eh! and an ordinary member of Scouts Canada, I urge you all to draw on the power around you and consider throwing your hat into the ring. Consider serving as an officer in what is quite possibly the only movement capable of mounting a voice of reason in the current governance. Eagle Scouts are returning their medals in protest over the Boy Scouts of America's lack of judgment on inclusion within their organizations. They are putting themselves out there for principle. Let us all take note of their example and screw up our courage once again to challenge the status quo.

Town Hall Meeting Called for Nova Scotia Council

A memorandum has been circulated by the National office concerning a Town Hall meeting soon to be convened. I am pleased to hear that there have been some positive discussions with Nova Scotia members. We can hope that the Town Hall meeting called for Sunday March 6 will result in something substantive being done to rectify the action taken to dismiss the Council Commissioner and his team. That action was, in essence, an attack upon the fundamental integrity of the Nova Scotia Council volunteers. We shall trust that any resolution resulting from the Town Hall meeting will be seen as just by the volunteers affected.

Scouts Canada fires Nova Scotia Council, SCOUT eh! responds

In November 2010, Nova Scotia Council held a democratic election for the new Council Service Team. Less than a month later, in an unprecedented move, Scouts Canada's CEO fired the entire team. SCOUT eh! finds the action taken by the CEO to remove the Nova Scotia Council Commissioner and his Council Service Team from their positions to be fundamentally wrong and unjustifiable.
