by : Mario deSantis
Nipawin : Ronald Reagan's death has brought back memories and the experiences of his two terms in office, Saddam Hussein's buddy as he was called in the Asia Times today. All of this brings us back to the present and the willingness we all have and seem to continue to accept rather large doses of hypocrisy.

Tuesday
June 15, 2004

Winnipeg's Special Place: The Forks
Wednesday
June 16, 2004
by : Timothy W. Shire
Winnipeg : The market-place, cultural centre, community meeting place, all of that and then some. Winnipeg's Forks is one of the most interesting and stimulating place I know of and almost suggests that we should take a very long look not only what it is but what it does in terms of bringing a community together. This story has some pictures that show the way it looks now and includes a QuickTime VR panorama (2.4MB) of the whole overview of the scene.
The Great Sandhills mistake
Wednesday
June 16, 2004
by : Edwin Wallace

Why I'm not voting Conservative
Saturday
June 19, 2004
by : Patricia Green
The real threat of a conservative victory has many Canadians and non-Canadians as well very worried. The very fabric of the country is threatened simply because we are grossly aware of the way things have gone in the United States with this form of government policy and of course the last Conservative government did so much damage that our fate as a country may already be doomed.
Thanks, but no thanks
Saturday
June 19, 2004
by : Susan Walsh
Mississauga, Ontario : The Conservative Party bulled its way into existance by bribing the PC leader Peter MacKay, paying off his campaign debts and it boldly continues to assert that the whole take over was fair and legal. It has now issued membership cards to members of the PC party further antagonising already bad feelings.
Say it in an image
Saturday
June 19, 2004
by : Antoinette Martens
Saskatoon : As long as there has been politics there have been political cartoons. Often these works say far more than the written word as images have a different address in one's intellect. On this site we have taken some liberty in the past with images but always in the electronic format, these are done the traditional way.
Bushs America: lack of moral grounds and consequential violence
Saturday
June 19, 2004
by : Mario deSantis
Nipawin : It might be called stirring the pot as the President of the United States desperately wants to hold on to his role. It is neglegent to blame he alone for the woes of America for indeed his followers must themselves accept responsiblity for a never ending ever escallating cycle of violence. These people seem bent on murder and destruction and they are succeeding.

Saturday
June 19, 2004

Carrot River : The television science fiction show Star Trek, captured the imagination and the intellectual curiousity of millions because much of the underlying principles were worked out over the years examining just what exactly does it mean to be human. Kevin explores one of the most fundamental principles worked out in the show and gives us reason to consider it application in our present day world.
