“I am lucky to live in Toronto and have access to Tech Savvy. I was literally confused at how they could offer me 200 gig a month for less than 40 cost with Rogers.

I also like to bring this up every chance the subject remotely comes up. How in the world was the joint purchase of MLSE legal? Please will someone explain to me how that isn't collusion.

I really wish the CRTC had teeth”

“Wouldn't be surprised. Remember 9/11? I'm on the left coast and I could barely concentrate on my work for days. I can't imagine being there first searching for life and finding death, sifting, shifting ... the despair those living souls must have felt in finding anything, everything.
Woulda coulda shoulda are three of the words those very people are saying to themselves, forgetting that at the time 'have to do' was about the limit of capability. Not for all, some stoic persons knew and could do nothing with crews crying and nauseous.”

“I was wondering that myself, living 15 minutes from the 2nd newest and 2nd largest refinery in Canada, in Nanticoke Ontario, which will be bypassed by this proposed pipeline.

Guess our refinery is not owned by the people Harper owes favors to, but boy, could we ever use the jobs here.”

“Unfortunately, I hit "Fave" instead of "Reply".

Think of the 50000+ names on those "Black Marble" slabs in Washington D.C..

Except for the standard foreign decorations the South Vietnamese government bestowed
upon each participant, and the US National Defense Ribbon, the only other decoration,
I would venture to say, that more than 60% of these "National Treasures" were awarded

It is the most simple thing in the world.

Those that make minimum wage won't be hiding anything in tax schemes and off shore accounts.

“I have a question for the CRTC...

Why is the sun news paper allowed to have an absolute hatchet job in the comments section everyday that never has a name attached to it? At most it will say QMI agency, most days nothing is attached, and is always the most disgusting abuse of fallacies.

Take yesterday's for example: "Fed up with UN food envoy"

"The last time the UN's right-to-food envoy Olivier de Schutter's name came up, we argued there was probably enough food left over from the Victoria Day weekend to feed the entire country of Sudan."

"The man is just another reason in a long list of reasons why the United Nations is increasingly becoming a joke."

"What the long-form census has to do with sticking a fork in a chicken is beyond us. And, as for the wheat board, when has a freer market ever had a negative impact on food supply?"

"De Schutter didn't actually go to the Arctic, of course. There's no five-star hotel."

"Instead, he spent less than two weeks in Canada, and then almost a year writing his 21-page report That's right. Only 21 pages. What a workload."

...so why is this unclaimed attack on the UN allowed in a "news" paper?”

DogRumpCreek on Mar 5, 2013 at 10:44:49

“Awesome, let regulate opinion. That article is from the editors desk. It's the opinion of the news paper. It's not news it's opinion and clearly labeled as such. If you do not know the difference that's your problem.”

elsita woods on Jan 18, 2013 at 13:21:48

“Why are you hurting your girlfriend with porn? The "acts" she does for you are out of desperation to please you. She's saying: "Hey, buddy; I'm real and I love you. Why don't I measure up to the bimbos on the screen?"
Stop trifling with her and hurting her heart. How you you like her to do things that make YOU feel inadequate -- or, in your words, "furious."
Be a man. Grow up. Show love to the woman who deserves your love.
Porn was developed for lonely lumberjacks in logging camps.
If they had access to a warm, loving woman, they would have thrown it in the campfire.”

“The crazy thing is how quickly they shifted the debate.

They immediately changed it from defending yourself from an intruder to defending yourself from a tyrannical government... and THAT is why they need an AK47 with a 100 round drum.

davidstarlingm on Jan 16, 2013 at 12:38:17

“The "terrorism watch list" is arbitrary and requires no court process. The 14th amendment guarantees that citizens will not be deprived of their rights without due process. Thus, it's unconstitutional to restrict 2nd Amendment rights on the basis of an arbitrary list.

Or perhaps you can provide examples of people on the terrorism watch list who were able to legally purchase guns and used them to commit terrorism?”
