  LDS Members in Canada's Parliament Reduced By 1
The two known LDS MPs (members of parliament) have been reduced to 1 in yesterday's national elections in Canada. While incumbent N. Grant Hill was re-elected with 70% of the vote in the MacLeod riding (election district), controversial LDS MP Jack Ramsay was resoundingly defeated in his bid to retain his seat representing the Crowfoot riding, even after he won an appeal of a rape conviction earlier this year.

  Mo Udall's Son And Nephew Filling His Environmentalist Shoes
Environmentalist Rep. Bruce F. Vento died last month leaving a legacy of hundreds of successful environmental protection measures. Many have been concerned about who in the House would carry on his legacy of conservation. A generation ago, Bruce Vento followed the lead of Mormon Rep. Morris K. "Mo" Udall, who served as the chairman of the House Interior Committee. Today, Udall's son Mark, a Colorado Democrat, and nephew Tom, a New Mexico Democrat will try to fill his shoes.
