Tim's Tip of the Day

We often trick ourselves into thinking that we are free to do what ever we want but the reality is that choices do occur in life and they are meaningful events but most often choices are really not a choice at all but an obvious oblication.

Ensign Notes

Monday, May 19, 2003
by: Gerald Crawford
Our man Gerald and his wife Helen have shared a lot together in their lives together but at their anniversary they discovered how much they affected everyone around them. Cold at the park but they got the dock and boat in place and as a bonus this week's report includes some great flower pictures.

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.

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.

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.
