Ensign Notes

Late today sorry about that! But rant we must.

Politicians work for us
September 9, 2003
by: Ron Thornton
With eight provincial elections and a federal election in the works Canadians have an opportunity to make their wishes known and it is just possible that those seeking office might just pay a little attention.

You can vote Ö you just canít think, speak or spend
September 9, 2003
by: Walter Robinson
The Canadian Taxpayers Federation dislikes federal election laws which limit spending on elections by special interest groups. This issue is soon to come before the Supreme Court.

Power and courts
September 9, 2003
by: Timothy W. Shire
There are powerful forces who want to see the progress that mankind has made in the last twelve centuries go away so that they can exploit, use the wealth to create even more wealth and power. What stands in their way are centuries of law and a court system. The use of "no fault" and out of court deals are signs of encroachment on civilisation. You have been warned!

September 8, 2003
by: Timothy W. Shire

September 5, 2003

Good Spirit
September 5, 2003
by: Shawn Ratushniak

Eduardo Galeano's deep understanding of U.S. unsecure prosperity: defending the dollar by sending Marines and by assuming markets
September 5, 2003
By: Mario deSantis
Mario deSantis wrote this story Wednesday, it is important to note this fact because today several world economists in an international meeting in Calgary reported their extreme distress at the US economy which appears not only to be in serious trouble but is also running up the biggest deficit in recent history. Several US politicans referred to the growing unemployment and rising debt yesterday while the Dow dropped 84 points today.

Early Birds
September 5, 2003
by: Timothy W. Shire
Certainly the season has accellerated with harvest almost complete here but it seems pretty warm and extremely early for geese who often do not leave until late October, to be forming up migration flocks.

September 4, 2003
by: Timothy W. Shire
Wynyard is a busy prairie community with industry, tourism and seems to be handling the assault of urbanised marketing.

September 4, 2003

Big g-OIL-vernment
September 4, 2003
by: Walter Robinson
Spot market pricing / barrell has dropped well below the $30US level but we are seeing up to 85.9¢ at Saskatchewan pumps. What gives, well Walter Robinson figures a little help your self by the oil companies is to be expected but the government taxes on fuel and aviation travel is mean spirited.

Thoughts on marriage and same sex marriage
September 4, 2003
by: Cassandra Loiselle
Reacting to Barbara Reid's expression of her thoughts on the use of the term "marriage" in a same sex union Cassandra Loiselle of Winnipeg takes a quite opposing view and with it quotes one of the greatest poets of the last century. This is not a long discussion but one you definitely need to read.

September 2, 2003

September 2, 2003
by: Mark Weisbrot

We have added some interesting references to this story and you will discover he is hardly alone in his assessment of things.
