Tim's Tip of the Day

In an interdependent society like our own every part of our lives depends upon "trust." We expect people to bring their cars to a halt at stop signs, we trust our Medicare system to look after our health needs and we expect those we elect to office to be honest and server our needs. But all that trust does not go one way we have responsibilities as others trust us to be honest, pay our taxes and respect their privacy and human nature.

Ensign Notes

Disappointment in the United States and Britain as warmongering comes to a halt as Iraq agrees to inspections. This is an inherently unstable world yet Canada seems not to be using this possible lull to get its troops up to strength and better equipped to meet possible threats and action.

The Liberals and Kyoto
September 16, 2002
When the Liberal government came to office it had carried to the Canadian public several very important promises. Those promises were overlooked once in power and Jim Calvert of Gravenhurst Ontario is wondering if the same process is happening with the Kyoto Accord, a lot of talk and promises but no committment.
Priorities seem very odd
September 16, 2002
Some things don't have to be complicated. We know why it is important to be Canadian and we also know that there are many who would threaten both our sovereignty and our values. Kristy Sewell from Winnipeg believes that Canada's military is coming up very short with old equipment and we need to get our priorities straightened out.
