  1. You might find this headline interesting. Canada more at risk from environmentalists than religiously inspired terrorists: RCMP http://www.vancouverobserver.com/news/canada-more-risk-environmentalists-religiously-inspired-terrorists-rcmp Our Nazi fundamentalist PM, Steven Harper, the worst prime minister Canada has ever had, and the Harper (not Canadian) government, place oil and gas development and financial gain above any and all other issues. In particular, environmental issues. We have gone from about 2.5 million protected rivers and lakes to 159. Don't want any environmental issues slowing down our pipeline building. Besides, what's a couple of ruptured pipelines here or there? The rivers will carry the oil away. Also, assuming floating a dozen or more huge oil tankers filled with diluted bitumen from the tars sands, through very narrow rocky waterways or the St. Lawrence River every day isn't an issue, we have 3 protected oceans. Not sure which 3 because the Arctic, Pacific, and Atlantic sure as hell aren't included. And, lets not forget the contribution to global climate change, one of the worst greenhouse gas producers in the world, the tar sands development itself. Just for interest's sake, organizations under watch by the RCMP and Canadian Security Intelligence Service (CSIS) include Idle No More, ForestEthics, Sierra Club, EcoSociety, LeadNow, Dogwood Initiative, Council of Canadians and the People's Summit, the Vancouver Observer reported in 2013. Since I belong to and support Idle No More, LeadNow, Dogwood Initiative, Council of Canadians, Greenpeace, and SumofUs, should I assume I'm being investigated by the RCMP and CSIS? It's funny how I once used to be proud to be a Canadian...not any more.
  2. Thank you for reminding me it's NOT springtime in Canada. By the way, did I ever mention I hate winter?
  3. It's called poutine and was created in Quebec.
  4. And back to Camy's original topic, what the hell is he going to look for in their DNA? A pink gene?
  5. Lug always looks fantastic.....as long as he keeps his trousers on.
  6. He's why I have to take my meds regularly, and just to avoid any confusion, or uncalled for remarks from my buddy, they're prescription meds.
  7. The Mustard Jar is officially eight years old so, HAPPY BIRTHDAY to THE MUSTARD JAR AND RONYX. And to celebrate, Ronyx will be starting a new story on the 10th...Closing the Barn Door.
  8. I think it needs to be said that I have nothing to whine about this month. In fact the last couple of weeks have been shorts and t-shirt weeks. Which up here means the temperature has risen above 40F.
  9. A very nice heartwarming short story from Colin that could be a very nice heartwarming chapter 1 to a very nice heartwarming novel.
  10. It's definitely not me Colin. It's one of the kids I taught many years ago. That drift is from one blizzard at the end of November. Thirty six hours before that picture was taken, there was no snow, patches of green grass even. haha
  11. Noam Chomsky said it, “The general population doesn’t know what’s happening, and it doesn’t even know that it doesn’t know.” On a brighter note, lots of people know, and the Save Our Climate protests across Canada yesterday brought out thousands of people opposed to fracking, the tar sands period and obviously any expansion, and the building of new pipelines that would lead to tar sands expansion. Thousands turned out in Vancouver and Toronto, hundreds in smaller cities like Edmonton, and dozens in smaller towns, including remote villages in the very far north. Sadly, Calgary only had a couple of dozen protesters. But then Calgary is the home of most of the oil and gas corporations’ head offices and PM Harper’s federal riding. Now the hope is that Harper pays attention to the peoples’ wishes and begins to support clean energy sources like wind and solar.
