Tim's Tip of the Day

Sunscreen and insect repellant are a must for outdoor activity but for simplicity, put up with the discomfort and wear long sleeved shirts and a hat. For unknown reasons few of us ever put sunscreen on often enough or thoroughly enough for it to be any good and avoid insect bites, your health depends on it.

Ensign Notes

Summer holidays: That's right, 2003 is the first year since 1991 that we have had a chance to take a holiday. During June, July and the first two weeks of August we will have some intermittant days when Ensign will not post. Our plan is to do some tripping and camping here in Saskatchewan.Will be posting today, then off on another camping trip. Today we hear more about same sex marriage and some conservatives voice their concerns about Stephen Harper.

No means no!, Harper's cynical approach, and the Doctrine enunciated
Thursday, June 19, 2003
by: Dale Swirsky, Thomas Curran and Joe Hueglin
Unless you are an Alberta separatist few Canadians have much love for the sardonic Stephen Harper but this week he seems to have truly moved over the line and drawn a good deal of displeasure from members of the Progressive Conservative Party. Though each of these stories have a different direction to the condemnation we can see that Harper has ruffled some feathers and combined the three give a good picture of why.

Thursday, June 19, 2003
by: Sherri Northcott

The scientific governmental approach to public policies and the Iraq war: Continuous Statistical Polling
Wednesday, June 18, 2003

Making Reality out of the Fiction of the Free Market
Thursday, June 12, 2003
by: Mario deSantis
The political predisposition of so many leaders both at home and around the world is determining governmental action rather than basing administration on the needs of the real world.

Thursday, June12, 2003
by: Richard P. Neumann
Political power in Canada flows from the regional issues that produce separatist parties like the Bloc and the Canadian Alliance. But there is a solution.

Satisfying all save the extremes.
Thursday, June 12, 2003
by: Joe Hueglin
The issue of same sex marriage has been steaming away for five years. Parliament and the courts are at odds and its time to look for a way out of this rather than rehash the same tired proclaimations.
