Resolved that CUPE 4163 (Educational workers, University of Victoria):
- Request the Minister of Justice, the Hon. Irwin Cotler, to refuse the

- Remind the Minister of the false FBI evidence provided to Canada in
the 1976 extradition of Anishinabe-metis leader Leonard Peltier, who
remains in Leavenworth prison 28 years later.
- Remind the Minister of the FBI’s use of COINTELPRO and other

civil rights leaders, the peace movement, and AIM in the years 1970-75,
which included false accusations, planted evidence, and (tolerated)
- Ask that the Canadian government not hide from its responsibility
behind an intergovernmental procedure, but respect the spirit of the rule
of law. If Graham must stand trial, as a Canadian citizen he should have a
fair trial -- in Canada.
