Late Tour

I just heard that two more bomb related suspects had been picked up by London, UK police.

Buying a new car?

Malcolm Bricklin, of the gull-winged Bricklin and infamy in NB, went on to introduce the Subaru into North America. Now, he's going to be promoting the Chery out of China.

Is it treasonous to North America's automobile industry to even consider buying. How much of this car was stolen via high level Chinese who owned part of or worked at GM? You do have a choice. You may pull a car-buyer's lowest price WalMart shopping spree


You may consider the implications and reconsider price as the most important value. It is your country, your choice, and down the line, maybe your job on the line. I choose not to feed the Dragon.

Look ma, no hans CBC, Martin O'Malley
"with global warming threatening – promising? – to transform the High Arctic into northern versions of Florida and Louisiana, places like Nunavut, Greenland and Hans Island are beginning to look like solid investments in the future." [. . . . ]

Pot grow ops may be considered a 'scourge' to Min. Anne McLellan, but not all agree.
Newsbrief: Mountie Murders Shift Canada Marijuana Debate Rightward Even Though Grow-Up Link Tenuous 3/11/05

Public Safety Minister Anne McLellan said it might be time to crack down on marijuana grows. She and Justice Minister Irwin Cotler will "want to take a look at whether we have the right resources being used in the right ways and whether we have the right laws."

Under current Canadian law, marijuana growers can face up to seven years in prison. But in reality, few are sentenced to prison. Under the government's pending decriminalization bill, penalties for grows would be doubled, with some growers facing up to 14 years in prison. Sentiment now appears strong to pass that portion of the legislation, or even strengthen it, though a backlash to the use of the Mounties' death to push an anti-marijuana position may be growing.

Let the army bust the grow-ops Martin O'Malley, CBC, Mar.4, 05

At least one generation of Canadians knows the line, "The state has no business in the bedrooms of the nation." Pierre Elliott Trudeau made it famous, but the line belongs to Martin O'Malley . . . .

[. . . . ] The grow-ops clearly are out of control and the police do not have the resources to handle it.

[. . . . ] If Toronto Mayor Mel Lastman could bring in the army to clear snow from Toronto streets in 1999, can't we expect at least as much effort to clean up an illegal operation that is raging out of control and growing exponentially across the country? [. . . . ]

The product is illegal; if police ignore the illegal grow-ops or are too underfunded to do what is required, what does that do for the idea of law and order? Which province is more pro-pot than the rest? Which province looks upon criminals more as societal victims than as law breakers? Which province has determined the scizoid response to justice? The puff-ball sentences? The catch and release actuality?

Chertoff warns of nuclear terror -- Homeland Security secretary sees WMD threat as major concern Aug. 1, 05,

[. . . . ] U.S., Homeland Security Secretary Michael Chertoff said there are far worse security problems facing the country than bombings of mass-transit systems.

In comments during a visit to Lawrence Livermore Laboratory in California this week, Chertoff said the foremost concern for the nation's security now is the threat of a larger chemical, biological or nuclear attack. [. . . . ]

Last month WND and its sister publication, Joseph Farah's G2 Bulletin, reported increasing evidence suggests al-Qaida not only has nuclear weapons in its arsenal, but has smuggled them into the U.S. along with thousands of sleeper operatives

Make a guess on the mosque mentioned. . . . No! You don't say! Impossible!

StatsCan puts bad numbers on site - twice Dean Beeby, Aug. 1, 05

OTTAWA (CP) - For the second time this year, Statistics Canada has released erroneous trade numbers on its website, further undermining the credibility of federal statistics.

And the agency knew about the latest batch of bad numbers more than 10 days before it alerted the public and media to the problem, according to documents obtained by The Canadian Press.

[. . . . ] Trouble is, the so-called corrected numbers were themselves incorrect [. . . . ]

This is the whole problem with our Constitution. It was written by lawyers. Oh, sure, popular thought has it that it was 'written by Canadians', but it was Canadian LAWYER politicians, and politicians told by lawyers what to write that wrote it. Lots of work for lawyers is the outcome of that piece of garbage called the Constitution.

After my own heart.
