Ensign Notes

So the health workers strike ended as workers went back to work today. The song for today is the Chairman of the Board's version of this classic click here to listen.

Paul (and now John) borrowing to appear to have paid.
October 17, 2002
Joe Hueglin points out the glaring reality that the Federal government's apparent surplus of almost $9 billion has been produced by charging excessive amounts for the money taken from employees and employers in Employment Insurance which is now considered another form of direct taxation.
What about the dinosaurs?
October 17, 2002
Scarborough Progressive riding president Peggy Merritt feels that the Federal government has been distracted in its handling of the Kyoto issue and feels that without cooperation between North American governments little can be achieved.
Cut back on unneeded "other" spending
October 17, 2002
Mike Reilly points out a very disturbing factor that has been raised by the auditor general as taxes have risen, services reduced and debt reduction unchanged yet the government continues to spend and keep on spending and spending 12% of the country's Gross Domestic Product on "other" budget items.
October 16, 2002
If you share a fascination with machinery these pictures of this on and off railroad CN crane will definitely interest you.
The strike that will not end
October 16, 2002
Though some are hopeful that maybe the strike will be over soon there is really no reason for such a belief and even if the strike ends the damage to the health care system is extremely severe. So severe it will simply limp running as it does now with the strike in progress even after the strike concludes.
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.
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.
The Greenwater Report
October 14, 2002
Gerald Crawford tells us this week about helicopters, traffic tickets and shows us with some excellent pictures, the forest now lit up with colour.
Thanksgiving Sunday
October 13, 2002
Some things are a gift and almost all things a blessing one way or another. The pictures in today's story were taken by Judy Shire last weekend and thought to be unuseable until we discovered the mysterious beauty in these images yesterday.
Automated round bale handling
October 12, 2002
An Alberta manufacturer is turning out equipment that allows the pickup of those huge bales fright from the field and then set them in the farm yard.
Sprinkle of colour
October 11, 2002
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.

A week ago Tuesday this picture of this outspoken back end of a pickup was recorded.
