SOUNDBITE (English) CANADIAN AUTHOR, MARGARET ATWOOD, SAYING:

"For penance, I'll buy a couple dozen sheets of the new stamp. Stick them on letters that call for action on climate change, and an end to racial-gender discrimination, and send them to all the Conservatives on Parliament Hill and all the Republicans in the American Congress. That should rattle the wind and shake the trees."
