June 25, 2004

Tim's Tip of the Day

"Spark plugs!" who ever worries about spark plugs anymore? They last for a long time. Our car needed them long before we changed them at 254,000 km. but someone installed cheap non-standard ones in our van before we bought it and the damage amounted to about $2,000. So get your mechanic to check your plugs, could save you a lot of money.

Kevin's find of the day

Racy Allegations Vs. Illinois Senate Hopeful (pdf) this ABC news and AP story relates some of the details of divorce of 7of9 from her politician husband "Jack Ryan".

of Events


A question to be asked and answered
Friday
June 25, 2004
by : Joe Hueglin
Niagara Falls : The Conservatives and their leader have indicated that they would like to see more foreign investment. Perhaps we have heard this line before.

This Is One Orchard That Seems To Bare Rotten Fruit
Friday
June 25, 2004
by : Ron Thornton
Edmonton : In this article Ron Thornton rebuts an earlier article by David Orchard and in these two positions we can see the reflection of the political climate of the United States. Polarisation is by far the most dangerous thing our society. From their perspective both Mr. Orchard and Mr. Thornton see the issues.

The untouched issue
Friday
June 25, 2004
by : Joe Hueglin
Niagara Falls : If you thought Mulroney was bad for Canada, Joe Hueglin warns that you haven't seen anything yet as the Conservative leader is determined to merge once more.

Philip Harper, died August 28th 1944
Saturday
June19, 2004
by : Timothy W. Shire
Togo : Canadians went to Europe and Asia in two world wars, many did not come back. This is the story of one of them who is buried in Caen France and remembered there as well as here in his home town.

After The Great Debates, It Is Now Up To Us To Choose
Saturday
June 19, 2004
by : Ron Thornton
Edmonton : The issues make the difference for this writer as he mulls over the options he decides that his religious convictions and political beliefs come out on top and he has made his decision.

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.

The prime directive
Saturday
June 19, 2004
by : Kevin McIntyre
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.

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
Success : Mr. Wallace is a bit cranky about the recent decision by the Saskatchewan government to increase the amount of drilling for natural gas in the Great Sandhills area of western Saskatchewan. Environmentalists and scientists appear to agree on the ecological mistake of this decision.

The sacrifice of idealism
Tuesday
June 15, 2004
by : Timothy W. Shire
Winnipeg : It is not a pretty sight, neighbours with rival signs on their lawns, in one case a duplex with opposite signs and mixed into the federal election is the Winnipeg campaign for a replacement mayor.

A graveyard for our dreams: why Im not voting Conservative
Tuesday
June 15, 2004
by : David Orchard
Borden : This is one of the strongest condemnations of Stephen Harper and his Alliance Party people who now call themselves by another name. But, David Orchard points out, in their own words what they are really all about.

The Saskatchewan Air Show 2004
Monday
June 14, 2004
by : Matthew Shire

Moose Jaw
: Rain and low ceiling dampened the spirits on this years airshow but many took the chance and went to participate in one of the best air shows in North America.

The Greenwater Report
Monday
June 14, 2004
by: Gerald Crawford
Greenwater Provincial Park : The cool weather has delayed development of this year's cropp of wild flowers and if any birdwatchers are tuning in, Gerald has a hummingbird problem.

Doug Saunders of Globe and Mail: A little bit of hypocrisy is good
Monday
June 14, 2004
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.
