Tim's Tip of the Day

There have always been good music performers male and female, but you are now alive at the time of what looks like the best performer of all time, Canadian Shania Twain having only two huge albums out has released the first hit from her third mega album. No perform in the past has ever shown such enormous popularity from all genres of music and combined it with such simplicity and well presented audio and video.

United States election in November and Iraq
October 10, 2002

No pressure for publics' interest
October 10, 2002
Joe Hueglin points out the odd ideas that the government has about ethics when it comes to coming down hard on MPs and Senators and ignoring cabinet ministers and their behaviour.
Construction updates
October 9, 2002
A month ago we went through the various project underway in town and today we have individual reports on houses under construction, the A&W, expansion at Nuform and Northern Steel's upgrade to the Fripp plant.
Canada's Armed Forces unprepared, under supported and over committed
October 8, 2002
