Find of the day

Obama could kill fossil fuel overnight with a nuclear dash for thorium
Because nuclear power in America, Russia and France was so closely tied to the production of weapons grade material the nuclear industry has not pursued the use of other materials for power production. Thorium is cheap and an excellent alternative.

Canadians expect and deserve more from their government
August 16, 2010
by: Timothy W. Shire

Tisdale: Few Canadians who know where their ancestors came from can condone the behaviour of the federal government. One minister tells us we need more prisons in this country because of "unreported crime" and another tells us that nearly 500 migrant refugees are criminals and possible terrorists. We deserve better from elected officials.
