“For my father who fought in Dieppe with the Queens own Cameron Highlanders out of Winnipeg.
For my nephew, who is currently serving with PPCLI out of Edmonton.
For the many uncles who fought for Canada during WW11.
For those thousands of men and women who died for our freedom.
For those soldiers who are currently having to take the Canadian government to court. (Shame on the Harper government)
I wear my RED POPPY with pride and sorrow for those we have lost in death and those who live, and continue to fight and protect!”

“At least JT is being honest, McKay and the rest of the conservatives, sit back and ignore or outright support Puffy and Pam who were caught with their hands in the cookie jar! Guess who I respect more!”

“BS; this practice allows the restaurant owners off the hook from providing a living wage to its cooks and chefs. It is not about equality, it's about having both the public and the wait staff pay for the wages of the back of the house staff members. First cooks are Red Sealed Certified and should be paid accordingly. I'm betting the employer takes full advantage of the lower wages that "gratuity" worker get paid.”

“Champion of causes??? I could be wrong, but I thought the Senate was meant to be a sober second thought regarding matters that are making their way through parliament. Perhaps a job description should be given to Nancy Greene. Lobbying for Maple Syrup standardization! I ask you, is that the job for a Senator or is it a job for the maple syrup producers? Perhaps the syrup producers hired her to lobby on their behalf? sounds pretty sticky to me. Let the Maple Syrup producers pay her travel expenses!
Travel expenses are not necessary to fulfil the Senators obligations to the taxpayers. If for some unknown reason the job required a Senator to travel, they should first have to obtain "special" permission from a governing body who could approve such an expense prior to the event.”

“Agree, agree and agreed! It does sound sticky that Senators are "championing" these so-called causes. Enough of taxpayers having to pay for someone's pet project. If it relates to current legislation discussed in the House of Commons, then it might be applicable, but with internet and Skype, etc. why the need to travel so much anyways?”

“Not sure why any senator would lobby for a commerical activity no more then a school teacher would promote say an electornic piece of equipment. It seems to be rather suggestive of personal benefits.”

It only works with voters who cannot think logically.
It is the response to the negative ads that count, and Dix did not respond well. It really takes a special kind of sociopath to attack on personal attributes rather than political. However, Dix did not turn it into an advantage by pointing out the hypocrisy of the Liberal reign of terror Christy could impose. The BCTF fiasco and the other public union executives salivating on the sidelines just scared away too many folks worried about tax burdens.”

“I agree that the lazy 48 % should get off their fat Duffs, but many of the 48% are naturalized citizens. It's time for mandatory voting as well as the single transferable Vote!”

“Australia has both. They know how to be a real democracy.
Where do you get your information that "many of the 48% are naturalized citizens". Without a source, that statement comes off as very anti-immigrant. ”
