Monday, April 21, 2003
by: Mario deSantis
There are so many times that as we put together a story for this web site we have a longing hope that this just can't be true. Sadly in the case of the Carlyle group the more we learn the more we all realise just how very bad things are and will continue to be.
Not on my fairway!

by: Timothy W. Shire
This used to be the end of Moray, until the City marched it straight South. . . . . across a golf course, not a popular decision. Winnipeg is not a lot different from other urban centres as the conflict between its citizens and the use of the land seems to be increasingly selfish problem.

After Edwin brought the speech by Mel Hurtig to our attention we had some reaction from John Noriega of San Jose California. It is sitting in the list of things to post when time permits but Kevin also received the same response and so here is Mr. Noriega's comments with some from Kevin McIntyre. God Bless America.

Most Canadians never see any evidence of their Canadian Armed Forces. The trainers that fly over Moose Jaw are privately owned and the one or two 4x4s and little trucks in Regina are hardly enough to be noticed. Here is what Canada's military equipment looks like.

St. Vital Mall in Winnipeg

No less than a handful of anchors this spoke shaped mall might be better described as marketing sprall.
Paul Martin the almost chosen one will finally speak, but will he say anything?
Friday, April 25, 2003

Having been flat out for leader of the Liberal party for the past thirteen years Paul Martin has not been telling us what he stands for or what his position is on the major issues.

The IMF and World Bank:Poverty Reduction and Growth? Or the Same Old Formula?
Saturday, April 26, 2003

This means the United States and its "regime change" war in Iraq are enormously unpopular.
