“I don't want to say this, because I have always thought of myself as an open-minded accepting person. But perhaps it is time Western (read: Christian by tradition) start restricting residence and travel by muslim people.”

“The problem is that a true Jihadist on a mission in another Country may well pose as a Christian and even attend Church on a Sunday. Their committment to their mission is so strong they will do whatever it takes to not be discoverd and to succeed.”

“I agree.
Moderate muslims across the world need to start condemning the actions of their fellow (and not so moderate) muslims instaed of allowing the objections to come from otherwise silent muslims .”

Northern Gateway Pipeline Wins Approval From Harper Government

Northern Gateway Pipeline Wins Approval From Harper Government

“Harper just voted "NO" to his own re-election.”

“The FIPA is a move to lock-in those infrastructure investments which China is making to bring oil and gas across the ocean. Under FIPA, Chinese companies could sue Canadians if legislation were passed to protect First Nations rights and title and, by extension, the public interest -- leaving Canadian taxpayers on the hook for damages.
"If FIPA is ratified, all the hard work that has gone into fighting Northern Gateway is lost," says Sayers.
"Harper saw the pipeline resistance coming. FIPA was his end run: he wanted to make sure that no matter how much resistance to Enbridge that there was, the west would be moved. Resistance would be moot." quote from rabbledot ca. It won't matter if he is re elected or not If this goes through”

Rob Vann on Jun 17, 2014 at 19:53:30

“In the minds of most Canadians they voted NO quite a while ago.. Those who haven't are either delusional or are quite willing to trash this country for their own self interest.”

“It may be too little too late, but it's about as much as Obama is going to be able to push through. As it is, there is so much resistance and denial that I am not so optimistic for the future of the planet--or at least the future of US on the planet. One of the things both sides misses, however, or the thing that the "green" side fails to make clear enough, is that climate-fiendly technology can mean the creation of a new trillion dollar sector in the economy. Just as the steam engine revolutionalized the economy and the whole concept of work, so too renewable energy--with enough investment--can become a powerful new sector that will CREATE millions of new jobs in science, technology, and industry. There can be many big winners.”
Solar Roadways Spark Public's Imagination, But Cost Could Be Barrier

Solar Roadways Spark Public's Imagination, But Cost Could Be Barrier

“Perhaps the goal should not be replacing every mile of roadway in the US, but merely developing a marketable panel to begin "solar paneling" some driveways and parking lots. The $70 per square foot cost needs to come down, and it can only come down if the concept catches on and gets support at various government levels. Still, I don't see the figures of $3-$15 per square foot for asphalt and $70 a square foot for solar panels as comparable, because the solar panels will be generating power, thus helping to pay for themselves.”

MikeK in ON on May 31, 2014 at 12:51:41

“Parking lots are an excellent idea. They are already the some of the most profitable paved areas, and so many are in deep urban locations where electricity demand is highest. High-rise condos would make ideal locations for this technology.”

“Nope, climate change isn't happening, it isn't true. But this is true: it is boiling hot here today in Asia, another record high following a record hot April. The sky is an ugly hazy yellow color, and we haven't seen a blue sky for weeks. The glaciers are melting and it can be seen before our eyes. There are water shortages and severe droughts in many parts of the world. Say it ain't happening; deny that climate change is a hoax as you bake on a 120-degree sweltering Phoenix summer day.”

“The Harper government boasts of a surplus and hints of upcoming tax cuts, but it has happened on the backs of thousands of Canadian jobs. Many of the provinces aren't doing too well, either. A few wealthy Canadians have prospered, while the great majority continue to experience an economic recession. Hard times, indeed.”

“Here's how to keep the restaurants open: pay a decent wage to the employees. McDs is able to pay hundreds of millions to senior management and stock owners, I am quite sure it could afford a few bucks for the employees who do the actual work.”

Maryanne Slater on Apr 26, 2014 at 10:43:03

“Remember that these are franchises. The individual restaurant owners don't get so much because they pay the big bucks for royalties, supplies and advertising to head office.

However, you are right. If the corporation didn't squeeze so much, the franchisees wouldn't have excuses about paying better wages.”

“What went wrong? Peladeau told the truth, reminding Quebecers why the PQ exists and what it is really for. The problem is that most don't share that 20th century nationalist vision any longer. Younger Quebecers are smarter, bilingual, connected and outward-looking. Besides, Rene Levesque was a left-leaning visionary; Marois and Peladeau are elitist, exclusive, and self-serving.”

“Proven itself? The PQ has proven itself to be completely inept. What have you done about Quebec's massive debt, Marois, the crumbling infrastructure, loss of jobs, enormous social dissatisfaction, thousands contemplating leaving the province? You created these problems by turning your attention from real problems to such pressing issues as . . . turbans, yalmukas, English on signs. Your party and the people who support you encourage xenophobia, paranoia, exclusiveness and repression. Then you have the nerve to lie about it, pretending it isn't happening, and the problems were created by others. Charest was dragged down because he chose to do something about Quebec's financial crisis--raise tuition in the province with the cheapest education in North America. And what happened? Riots, encouraged by you and your party. You want to make Quebec a peaceful place to live, to study, to do business; you want to be inclusive, win the election, be a hero? Abolish Bill 101. Start a new society encouraging and teaching French, but without forcing it or penalizing those whose language and culture are different. And give all french people every opportunity to learn and use English, Chinese, Spanish, Punjabi . . . join the world; don't close it off.”

“Great post, and one I haven't often heard from an Albertan, most of whom usually arrogantly boast of their oil holding all the rest of us up. The argument often heard is that without oil our standard of living would plunge--there'd be nothing without oil. Hmm. Canada has vast supplies of fresh water, land and other resources, and could easily do a lot more with renewable energy, sustainable agriculture, high technology. Yet all the emphasis seems to going towards oil sands development, more pipelines, fracking, steam extraction. I think it all goes back to resopnsible political leadership, and the lack of it.”

“Hangovers get worse because it takes longer to recover, period. Takes longer to recover from vigorous exercise as well. Many of us (myself and friends) drink less simply because we have more responsibilities now. A few glasses of wine, some TV or internet, a book, and then off to bed. Got to get up in the morning and work. Not to mention being there for the kids. Whereas in our late teens and early 20s we'd drink ALL NIGHT, and occasionally, ALL WEEKEND. 'Cept for some homework and maybe a part-time job, there were fewer responsibilities.”

“Actually this study found that husband's income was inversely related to marital satisfaction. In other words poorer men were actually happier with their newly wed wife, than were richer men. I guess money doesn't by happiness, even if it might increase the chances of marrying an attractive woman.”

“The figures see the big picture but miss a lot of great small stories. I can think of a dozen smaller companies that are thriving; one called Ag Growth International (agriculture machinery) just reported a 76% rise in international sales. Another, Exco Technologies (auto parts) has been growing at 20% a year for the last decade. SAP (Saputo), a much larger entity, is currently making a bid for a major cheese manufacturer in Australia--fantastic company from Quebec. So where's the problem? Perhaps having a PM from Alberta who is pushing the oil agenda and ignoring these other sectors and possibilities is part of the problem.”

“Saputo is actually an Italian company whose parent company burnt out in 2008.”
