Good morning sweet Soo!
Four more sleeps and the fun begins! Winter summit. I informed the "one who must be obeyed" last night that I had booked a couple of hours on Saturday for a meet and greet at the Water Tower. She was not particularly impressed and told me to knock myself out and have fun! Guess that means I'm going by myself. Wonder if Stats is bringing Darlene?
I'll be running up to the SAH later on anybody need anything? Someone mentioned Robins as a harbinger of Spring - I've observed another sure sign. About three weeks before break-up the Seagulls reappear in the plant to claim a spot for nesting on some of the nice warm cozy roofs. One day nothing than the next the air is full of mother natures clean up specialists. I love gulls, I believe they are one of the few birds that fly for the love of soaring. When they used to attack my garbage bags I learned to use a spray bottle filled with bleach to repel the scavengers. Little bit of spray over the bags and voila, no mess.

I do not doubt your sincerety regarding the situation in Syria, however as with most civil wars there are always atrocities committed by both sides. Why the west thinks that every country should have a democracy like the one we have I do not know, and I think that many do not always agree with the one we have, certainly not some sections of the people. Wether we like Assad or not is moot as he was the "elected" head of state of the Country of Syria, and if he was not supported by a lot of people this conflict would have been over a long time ago. One thing the leaders of the western countries do not seem to understand is, that this is a "secular" conflict, one branch of Islam against another. You get between them and both sides will turn on you, all you have to do is look at the countries that changed leadership in the so called "Arab Spring", Egypt's President doesn't like the result of the last election so have another one, Libya, well the folk in Benghazi wants to be separate from the leaders in Tripoli, and if you were the folks who aided in getting rid of Ghadafi, well we will kill you now.. I would give both sides aid in the way of food and medical supplies but as for arming the rebels, I don't think so, more guns mean more dead Syrians...

I was interested to read about so many pundits, including our own "nice" Wisen, discussing how, if the Libs do choose Trudeau as their leader, it will jettison the Libs into oblivion.
I don't get the logic.
First the Libs have garnered an astonishing number of new members, many of whom are on the Trudeau wagon'
Second, regardless of what some say, there is a real distaste with Harper and his (V of R) type personality.
Third, Trudeau has charm and can admit when he makes a mistake.
Fourth, from what I read he has surrounded himself with a serious group of advisors
Fifth, voters vote not always according to reason
I am not "sold" on Trudeau but find some of the negative press naive.
I believe that Harper is dead meat and ,if they don't find a more palatable solution, it'll be, in a couple of years, the usual conservative whimperings of "Poor frigging Canada"

How be you neo-cons read the article re Hayes not responding to questions about the Feds shutting down the Experimental Lakes Area research facility at a cost of 50 million when they can operate it for 2 million a year. It makes you wonder how anyone can continue to support this government. The article is on this site's local news. We sure elected a winner.

The fact that Canada has more fresh water lakes than the rest of the world combined seems to escape these morons. The truth about polution from the oil sands must be inconvenient for the Tories.

You rant about the conservatives spending money and then you rant about reining in government spending.
You know nothing about this facility but what has been put into a self serving news release.
Get used to it, government cutbacks to put this country on the right track are just starting.
Long time coming I say.
The moaning, bitching and whining from folks of your ilk is monotonous.

If I may interrupt I would like to ask a computer question... no laughing
I am getting rid of a computer. It is going to the recycle place on Wilson. Is it safe to recycle such a thing? What about the personal information on it? I don't know anything about this stuff? Do I need to do anything with it?
I know I should know this type of thing

With regards to the ELA, which to be honest I had never heard of, why would it cost $50 mil to close it down? Is the site of this place so polluted that there will have to be remedial work done. Or is this the cost of terminating contracts with the employees? or is this a case of a government make work project that has run its course and it is found to be just repeating itself? I do not know, but I am sure the bean counters have looked at it, and found the value for money is no longer there, after all you can only repeat the same experiment so many time with the same result before someone notices!!

I've just finished watching the Bond movie and Specter are after your files and will sell them to Schmersh (you know the Ruskies)and all of the private videotapes that you made could be made public (even the one with the maple syrup) so ... take a sledgehammer to the computer and ... just hope that your house isn't firebombed by a helicopter before morning.

Why doesn't the City ask Car Dealers to donate automobiles to give away to visitors. Either that or pay the artists for their work. Buy their work if you think it is such a valuable addition to the fabric of our community. Support the arts; don't embarrass the artists into donating their work.

Rickford is an astute politician, and would comment if there were something to comment about. Hayes lives or dies by getting (1) Bridge Plaza, and/or (2) Deep water port. He would be an idiot to comment on something which could put him in bad graces with the money-wallahs in Ottawa--all the moreso because it doesn't affect his riding. The people of that riding elected an NDP turned Independent MP. That's his job to raise hell.
Another hit-piece by sootoday. Neither Hughes, nor any of the Northern Ontario NDP caucus has raised this issue publically. Ask them why they don't support their former colleague?

Bridge Plaza....done deal. Tony Martin's baby.
Deep Water Port...if Essar wants it, they'll get it. Hayes will be nothing but a door opener at the meeting.

bb: I'm no fan of Hayes; I just don't see a reason for him to comment on an obscure project in northwestern ontario. They don't elect him, and nobody here will care come election season.
I can't speak to the plaza. The Dippers may claim credit, but the sitting MP and MPP will get the media (and thus the credit). Between Hayes and Orazietti, I can guess who wins in that media scrum.
Hayes' silence on the Federal job losses locally however, is deafening. All those positions moved to Sudbury and Toronto with nary a peep. Unbelievable.

Bill.....agreed as to who'll get credit. But the Bridge Plaza was well under way pre-Hayes. And I'm not even NDP.
Water flows across electoral boundaries. We should be screaming to keep a watchdog on the job to protect/oversee the water quality. It is a more valuable commodity than oil. It's not just about jobs.

Bill, it took some local arm wrestling to get the property together to make the Bridge Plaza happen. Harper made it a political issue, not wanting Tony to get credit. DO will be there shaking hands, kissing babies and leading the parade.

Big Brother, Tony Martin was and still is a bum who hasn't learned to iron his suit yet. If you think that he deserves credit for the bridge plaza you need to give your head a shake. Harper came here on his own accord to check the place out for himself and decided the dump needed fixing.
And Jim, I'd rather be an arrogant prick who tells the truth and is good at his job rather than a nice person who can't make proper decisions when it comes to their job. Take the emotion out of it and it becomes a lot easier to get through the nonsense and give people the healthcare they deserve. We're talking empathy, not sympathy. The last thing this world needs is another bleeding heart.

"Canada has the third largest proven oil reserves in the world, but the province of Alberta is planning to cut education and health care spending this year, and Canada's national debt stands at a whopping $600 billion (CAD).
How can that be? With so many people calling our massive tar sands reserves the "Saudi Arabia of the North," how can we be so cash-strapped? How can the Alberta government be planning to cut funding to schools, education and health care if the province is so oil rich? "

We are in an economic recession Brianne. If the businesses are doing bad, the government does too. Things don't get cheaper. Raw resources only account for so much of the picture. Calling us the Saudi Arabia of the North my be a bit extreme.

Tar sands oil is very costly to produce and get to market at this time. Oil that is just north of $90 just doesn't cut it for a lot of folks in Alberta and things are slowing down out there.That said, a lower oil cost is good for just about everybody else.
" We are in an economic recession"
Sure, there are a lot of reasons/indicators that would have people thinking that way and I am glad there are.The old wall of worry thingy.But,just look at the other stuff.Corporate profits through the roof while they sit on a mountain of cash that will have to be deployed at some time one way or the other.Dow Jones at record high today/wealth effect.Housing in US on the mend.Bernake and Japan telling us they are going to print ,print, and print till all is well forcing people into into stocks.A zillion people who feel they have missed out over the last few years and will now foolishly buy.Precious metals falling and US $ rising.We are in one hell of a sweet spot and I think it has legs for year or 18 months yet barring the inevitable correction in the spring.After that,I am outta there,tempted to bail now!
There is no doubt it is still a recession in many ways.The middle class has just been pummeled over the last decade and I sure feel for young folks just coming up.
