Tim's Tip of the Day

There is a serious lesson to be learned from what is happening in the world right now. An American president who was not truly democratically elected is raising hell and he has more than two full years in office to confound situations everywhere, as he turns back civilisation, perhaps a full century.

Why Now?
September 21, 2002
The auditor general asked the RCMP back in May to check into GroupAction but it was this past week that they got around to it but this story is one that will not go away. Even though the parliamentary committee looking into it was closed down by Liberal MPs, something smells here. Bryan St. George from Kelowna is wondering why now.
