They Served

Tisdale: Once every road allowance, one mile apart East and West and every two miles North and South was actually a road but with the consolidation of farms many roads have once again become fields. While following some roads today we came upon a village that was like these over grown road allowances, a community that once was. This story includes a QuickTime Virtual Reality panorama of the area near the Golburn School and fairgrounds site.

A World of Hypocrisy: Bush's Lies and U.S. Crony Capitalism
November 14, 2003
by: Mario deSantis
Nipawin: There is a climate that is arising and even though we share in the pride of the high thoughts of our former and new Prime Minister they come in the light of the sad betrayal of Maher Arar and William Samson. It is this divergence of reality that confounds us and Mario really only hints at the widening gap between what is really happening and what we are being told. The United States has created a mess and is about to make more mess by abandoning the country they destroyed over the lies they have told. Similarly their economy is crumbling while we are told they are recovering. This short story has some powerful references that give the exploring reader a chance to see more clearly what is indeed happening.
