Interesting she didn't mention her involvement with the MMF!

Thompson Regional Board of Directors
MMF Provincial Board of Directors


Tansi Good Day Folks:

I briefly first met Ms. Campbell at the Winnipeg Office of Anishinabe Mazaska Capital Corporation during September 1999 while I was General Manager of the Louis Riel Capital Corporation. Plaintiff Campbell is one of several MMF Provincial Directors who allege I defamed them while Webmaster for

Before the trial begins I will subpoena her plus all remaining Co-Plaintiffs and look forward to renewing "our acquaintance" while she's under oath before a Manitoba Court of Queen's Bench Justice and Jury. I will be direct examining her on her motivation and intent for being a Plaintiff along with how I have allegedly damaged her reputation causing Ms Campbell financial loss - that should be very interesting! Then I'll report it all on for the world to see.

Ms Campbell will be capably defended by MMF lawyer Mr. Murray Norman ("The Happy Litigator") Trachtenberg. See you in Court.

Clare L. Pieuk

P.S. One other question I'll have for you when we meet again in Court Ms Campbell. How is it I could defame every MMF Provincial Board of Director except for Ron Chartrand, Bonnie McIntyre and Richard De La Ronde?
"A Vibrancy - You Just Feel It"

Anita Campbell has traveled east all the way to Halifax, explored the west throughout the prairie provinces and enjoyed parts of Manitoba from the north to the south. But Campbell, a member of the Premier's Economic Advisory Council (PEAC), and Executive Director of the Ma-Mow-We-Tak Friendship Centre Inc. in Thompson for the past 13 years, always loves to come home.

Indeed, when a job offer came from an organization in Saskatchewan, Campbell made a trip to the neighbouring province to scope out possibilities. Then she returned to Manitoba to live and work Campbell makes no bones about the fact that she missed her home, but there was more to her decision than just a desire to return there. It's what she calls "a vibrancy" the province where she has lived for 25 years, a vibrancy she couldn't find elsewhere.

"You just feel it," she says. "I've been through Toronto, I've driven through all the provinces going east all the way to Halifax and yes, they're great. But they don't offer the same things we have here." Campbell defines vibrancy in many terms, not the least of which are location and opportunity.

"I feel like I'm right in the middle of everything, "she says. "Because I'm in central Canada. "Thompson likes to refer to itself as the hub of the south; I look at Manitoba as being the hub of Canada." But more, there is the spectacular setting of northern Manitoba. she says the rugged rocky terrain and acres of treed landscape can compare with some of the most beautiful sights found anywhere in the country.

"Going west, you travel through flatlands, what is there to see? You drive east and sure, you've got a lot of trees, but we offer the best of what the east has to offer and the best of what the west has to offer. It's in this setting in the growing City of Thompson that she decided to settle and she looks forward with optimism to the future.

Like other Manitoba cities benefiting from a strong provincial economy, Thompson is growing. For Ms. Campbell, this means that the services of her hriendship centre will continue to be needed, and perhaps needed to an even greater extent in future as people from surrounding areas continue to move into the northern city.

The executive director oversees a staff of 65 and four separate facilities that make up the friendship centre. The centre provides a range of programs to people of all ages, but she says the reason for its existence is to help people in surrounding communities move to and make a successful transition to life in Thompson.

Thousands of users - she estimates the number at 35,000 annually - come to the centre for services such as help with their income tax, advocacy services to help with landlord/tenant affairs or government departments, adult education, counselling, translation services, employment assistance and a host of others.

One popular, award-winning program is the Northern Circle of Youth. Under that banner, the centre provides programs that speak to a holistic approach for people up to the age of 29. Young people can enjoy weekly gym nights, sharing circles, movie nights, cultural activities, sports activities, arts and crafts, tournament nights and outdoor expeditions. The program received a Manitoba Attorney General's Crime Prevention Award in 2001.

In a growing city like Thompson and in a healthy economy like Manitoba's, Campbell thinks that opportunities for Manitobans will only increase with time, not only in the northern city she calls home but elsewhere in the province as well.
