Khadr VS Bush - Who's the real war criminal?

Khadr VS Bush - Who's the real war criminal?
Ottawa Sun April 20 2012

According to current U.S. law, Omar Khadr is a war criminal worthy of 40 years imprisonment for killing a Special Forces medic while George W. Bush gets $200, 000 per speaking engagement. This medic was a volunteer commando, cross-trained in all their deadly skills. According to International Law, Bush, Dick Cheney and Donald Rumsfeldt are also war criminals, but they are protected by U.S. power and exceptionalism. This is like comparing a mouse to a pack of hyenas.

Royal Attrition Act of 2012
Ottawa Sun May 22 2012

Long live British royalty – at their own expense. Prime Minister Harper is spending $75 million public dollars to finance the pomp and ceremony of the Royal Jubilee. Perhaps he thinks we need a morale boost during these times of fiscal restraint. Funny how we always find money for a party while veterans, seniors and cancer patients go begging. I have a democratic suggestion.

MP Pensions Off the Radar

MP Pensions Off the Radar
Cape Breton Post April 5 2012

Yesterday’s federal budget was mostly devoid of MP pension reform. Perhaps MP pay and benefits should be linked to the unpredictable performance of the free market. That would truly test MP’s faith in our economic system. In any case, I’m sure MPs will choose the safety and comfort of the current publicly-subsidized remuneration policy. At the very least, retired or defeated MPs might reasonably be entitled to a pension based on a vastly higher contribution rate that the current 5 to 23 percent.

Ideology and Choices

Ideology and Choices

Ottawa Citizen, Cape Breton Post, Victoria Standard: Feburary 4, 2011

The nation’s attention is temporarily focused on Old Age Security (OAS) issues and while we are offered complex actuarial reasoning for inevitable benefit reductions; the real issue is one of ideology and choices. I direct the reader’s attention to the fact that in October, 2011 Royal Dutch Shell announced that the governments of Alberta and Canada had agreed to contribute $865 million toward the cost of a carbon capture and storage facility…” This notice presents a number of questions, such as:
