“On the one hand Henry, you blame pipeline leaks on human fallibility. Then you make the argument that shareholders expect profits. Perhaps you should also make the connection between profits and the resultant effect of doing less than could be done to decrease the amount of fallibility.”

“Quite a broad statement there Warren, even for your penchant for generalities. I'm a Liberal and would consider voting for Mulcair in the right circumstances.”

Warren Yuill on Apr 15, 2014 at 10:06:10

“I don't have a problem with Mr MulCair either.
He just needs to show me more.
I just need more plan than he's offered so far.
The conservatives lay out their plans very much to my liking.
Like the throne speech.
"The do nothing throne speech"
Turns out it announced a whole lot more than the media and the pundits gave it credit for.
Like reforming the elections act.”

“The claim that blasting the garlic buds with air to peel them also robs them of flavour is a bit of a stretch.”

“So, when the veterans voice their concerns, does the Harper government promise to investigate those concerns and maybe address them? Of course not! It does what it does best; it attacks the veterans voicing the concerns. Of course Harper's boys and girls will still not hesitate to wrap their arms around a veteran if there's a camera present.”

“Canada did not take Washington. The British did. Canada did not exist as a country and did not, could not, declare war on the US. If the US had taken Canada, it would have been a loss to the British. Most Canadians probably couldn't have cared much one way or the other. Canadians and Americans along the border were pretty much ambivalent about the whole thing.”

Canadian1978 on Mar 28, 2014 at 08:18:52

“Really, My Family came to Canada, and became A Canadian around 1812 to fight the Americans, The Canadians you speak to now are from the same family lines as the ones you claim were not Canadian, You guys were built on immigrants and farmers our blood lines go back mostly to soldiers maybe that is why we still to this day punch way above our waste and have such a hatred towards war in a vastly different way then Americans.”

“The War of 1812 was a British/American War. It was a draw. The status quo pretty much prevailed at the end of it all. That Canadians beat the Americans is pretty much a myth, at least to the extent that it was Canadians fighting Americans. It was the British fighting the Americans with some participation by Canadians and Iroquois. Most Canadians and Americans living along the border were ambivalent about the war. Many had friends and relatives on both sides of the border and interacted regularly.”

Douglas Sinclair on Mar 27, 2014 at 14:57:12

“It would have been a defeat without Techumseh and the western (now) Ontario settlers' militias (many of whom had been Americans).”

“Educate yourself Reg. The court rules on the Constitutionality of matters brought before it. The court isn't activist. It doesn't initiate actions; it rules on them when they are brought before it. Governments do not have the right to govern contrary to the Constitution. That is why we have a judiciary, to check government unlawful excesses.”

MKULTRA1 on Mar 22, 2014 at 12:43:18

“Your confused on the court ruling on Constitutional matters and a Lawyers argument based upon interpretation of the Constitution his/her client is being punished in his/her interpretation of the Constitution. Clifford Olson's lawyer argued it was cruel and unusual punishment under the Constitution his client was denied a blow-up doll in prison. Is the picture clearer.”
