Don't become desperate in search of fun, take life as it comes and that will be fun enough.

Ensign Notes

Long weekend short edition.

Echo of change
Thursday, May 15, 2003
by: Timothy W. Shire
We haven't been listening close enough to ourselves, we Canadians have been dancing along step for step not with our American neighbours but with the people in much of the rest of the world.

Misplaced Priorities
Thursday, May 15, 2003
by: Mike Reilly
The Federal Government has put a system to register potential sex offenders on a back burner. Known child molestors repeat, that is a fact of life and it is vital that a system be put in place to give the public and police every possible tool to prevent and protect.

Wednesday, May 14, 2003
by: R. W. Shire
Time to tee up in the Qu'Appelle Valley south of Melville just east of Crooked Lake.

Country Roads (part 2)
Tuesday, May 13, 2003
by: Timothy W. Shire
For the most part rural Saskatchewan is empty. The depopulation of the rural area has left behind it a marvellous world of empty farm yards and a sense of what once was.

Tuesday, May 13, 2003
by : Joe Hueglin
The cancellation of the order of SeaKing replacements back in 1993 remains an enormous problem as the government is now making the process turbulant and many feel trouble for Canada's forces who will have to rely upon the SeaKing for some time. The change to specifications could mean the obsolete SeaKing is better than what will replace it.

Acklands-Grainger Demo Day
Monday, May 12, 2003
by: Timothy W. Shire
From high tech to manual Acklands Grainger has the equipment and the safety equipment needed for industry of all kinds. This week they are doing their road show in this part of Saskatchewan and put on a good show in Tisdale today.

The Greenwater Report
Monday, May 12, 2003
by: Gerald Crawford
Today Gerald serves up some amazing pictures of skyscapes as he tells us about visits to Prince Albert and Marean Lake as he meets old friends and observes the coming of the new season at the park.

Country Roads (Part 1)
Monday, May 12, 2003
by: Timothy W. Shire
Come along on a drive west of Tisdale and down a country road with the sights along the way with a QuickTime VR panorama scene (600K).

Elsie Wayne and Intolerance
Monday, May 12, 2003
by: Ron Thornton
Those who declare sometimes excessively how they are maligned and abused turn the tables and bring out their heaviest insults for a member of parliament who expressed her honest opinion about same sex marriage as an issue. Ron Thornton points out that political correctness is endangering freedom of speech.

Mothers Day 2003
Sunday, May 11, 2003
by: Timothy W. Shire
As society evolves the role of motherhood itself is changing and we need badly to keep things in perspective.
