Hometime: God Bless America
October 15, 2002
The local flock of geese are still hanging out around Tisdale unwilling to take to the skies and head South until the very last possible minute as the danger of that passage from here to the Texas gulf is a gauntlet across the least civilised part of the known world.

Ensign Notes

Under the weather yesterday so production definely down, feeling better today.

Re-forming the spirit of Reform
October 15, 2002
Ron Thornton is definitely not alone in feeling the discomfort of the way the idealism of the Reform movement was bent by internal difficulties in the evolved Canadian Alliance Party. In the light of former Reform leader Preston Manning's new book being released yesterday it is interesting as Ron discusses the basic ideals and political needs of this region of Canada.

Thanksgiving Sunday

With the odd year we have had the trees have changed colour species by species so that now the shrubs has turned scarlet.
Her Majesty the Queen
October 11, 2002
Rudy Fernandes of White Rock, like so many people across Canada have been upset at the very bad manners shown by both the Deputy prime minister and some reporters. Letter's to the editors pages have been swamped with letters like this one by Mr. Fernandes.
Investment rather than welfare
October 11, 2002
Mike Reilly emphasises the positive aspects of finding value added use of Canadian lumber with the export of pre built building components rather than raw logs to create employment for Americans.
Canola, golden beads
October 10, 2002
A hardy oil seed crop that has delivered outstanding food value and could be the source of abundant renewable energy.
Auditor General issues another "wake up call" government still snoozin'
October 10, 2002
Walter Robinson reports the concern we all should have about the government's extremely slow reaction to problems brought up in other reports by the Auditor General.
Once proud military
October 10, 2002
Jason Inness laments the now glaring fact that even at the miserable level our armed forces are now at in eighteen months we will no longer even be able to support the present low and poorly equipped soldiers, airmen and sailors now in service.
United States election in November and Iraq
October 10, 2002
Richard Neumann shares his thoughts on the relationship between George Bush's desire to thump out Saddam and his dire need to retain seats in the Congress and Senate as the election is only a couple of weeks away.
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.
