On October 29 this car and several other classics will be sold at auction but first here is a look at this fifty-two year old car.
And . . . then it snowed

The trials and tribulations of the crop of 2002 are not over as what is left in the field was covered with a fairly heavy layer of snow yesterday.
The right to education
October 18, 2002
Be sure to check the reference on this story as it fills in the details about a strike of the educational assistants in Hamilton Ontario. Mark Alan Whittle explains the action he is taking to attempt to get something close to fairness for his disabled son. This discrimnatory strike only affects the disabled children and clearly is an issue that we all need to be concerned about as it is how we treat those least fortunate that a society is judged.

Kyoto’s many questions all lead to the same answer: Referendum
October 18, 2002
If you haven't already figured this one out, the reason the Prime Minister is going for ratifying the Kyoto Accord is because he knows already from polling that Canadians want something done about pollution.

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.
