PM props up Canada at pep rally
http://www.edmontonsun.com/2011/07/10/pm-props-up-canada-at-pep-rally

"There is much more to Canada's role in the world than our capacity to support our allies or to deliver aid to the needy," said Harper.

"We also have a clear purpose, and that is to stand for what is right.

"No longer does this country just go along with everyone else's agenda. We know where our interests lie and who our friends are."

A question regarding the words "we" and "our" in the last line.

They can not be referencing Canadians in general for the negotiations with the USA about a common Security Border around both countries have not been discussed, selling AECL was not, ending the CWB will not be .

When was the last time you recall being asked something about he CETA talks or whether you believe Canada is saving civilian lives by bombing in Libya?

The"we" is not me nor anyone I know. 

But then you may be in a different position.

With each day we hear more of the eroding of private liberties.

What can one do when our Governments do not act as their constituents have requested?  When our Government leaders have cowed in to the elite and big business entities, either through accepting bribes or possibly even putting themselves into further positions of power, then the majority of Canadians are left to wonder as to the future of Canada itself!

Is there a solution, or do we adjust to their direction?  Do we look at how best to adjust to a North America Union, do we let our natural resources be controlled by others,  do we follow our Government direction without questioning why decisions are being made, and do we give up our current rights as citizens of Canada?

Many questions with very few answers!

And the National Media are not on our side.

Joe,
To the extent that environmental issues have political overtones, can you include this in your Daily Digest?
My letter to the Ottawa Sun was published July 11th.  It can be found at: http://www.ottawasun.com/2011/07/10/letters-to-the-editor-july-11 under headings "Soak it up" or  "Why is the city so carelessly allowing the paving over of permeable surfaces?"
This resulted from a news story which can be found at: http://www.ottawasun.com/2011/07/09/city-residents-can-do-more-to-keep-sewage-out-of-river

Rule of law in Canada??? Haven't seen that for a long time.  Our Parliamentarians are above any written law and they will tell us what those words really mean, and it will always suit their own agenda. 
I remember when Pravda was held up as an evil publication controlled by the government of Russia and how lucky we were to have a free press and free speech.  My how things change.  Our government's control of every word spoken or written makes Pravda look like a beacon of light.

Subject: Little Ice Age

Hank--fantastic videos.  Sadly, the old saying that bullshi+ baffles brains sees to be working with our governments and some of the idiots around the planet.  CO2 is an essential nutrient for plants--can you imagine the amazing harvests we would have from all the fat plants on the planet.  Next we will be told that fat is dangerous for plants and that is why we have to stop CO2?  I recently read about a scientist in Japan who has created 'meat' from human feces.  This will supposedly get rid of all the cows belching CO2 into the atmosphere.  But, according to one of the videos you posted, methane is a bigger danger than CO2.  If we have to start eating things like beans to keep our protein level up so the shi+ steaks are high in protein can you imagine how much methane we will be expelling into the atmosphere.  I know I would be a big contributor!!!
I have never had a doubt that the carbon tax was the only real reason for the GW garbage being stuffed down our throats.  A friend visited England a few years ago.  The have large amounts of wind turbines supplying their electricity.  There was no wind for weeks and so many people did not have any electricity.  But then I guess governments would find a way around this too?  I have a friend in Alberta who has a workshop behind her house.  She did not use it at all last month and her electricity bill came the other day.  Her usage was 000 but her bill was $50.00 for the month. 
We are supposed to focus on things like GW while our governments allow sludge to be spread on our fields, garbage dumps to leech into the groundwater, raw sewage to escape into rivers, contaminated vaccines being given to our children and on and on.  Our government want to control the climate and they can't fill a pothole?

Codex Alimentarius - Dare you ignore it?
RemediesDirect.com More and more people are becoming concerned about the shady, secretive organization that is Codex Alimentarius - the thinly-veiled propaganda arm of the international pharmaceutical industry that does everything it can to promote industry objectives whilst limiting individual options to maintain health (which would diminish mermbers profits). http://www.natural-health-information-centre.com/codex-alimentarius.html

Subject: Monsanto

What I don't understand about CETA is why the Canadian government wants to sign a trade deal with Europe when Europe refuses any GMO tainted food?  Percy Schmeiser was destroyed for his demand that he be able to save his own seeds and Monsanto and the Liberal Government destroyed him.  Canada is a corporatocracy and either we bow down or we rebel.  But then, we know that the government has complete power over our lives. 
I have one question about the CWB--why does it apply only to the West?  I know it was instituted to have a constant food supply during WWII but in case no one noticed we are now into WWIII.  Western farmers are used and abused by the CWB.  Government control of anything means destruction.  The only way any government would dismantle the CWB is if Monsanto and/or Cargill saw it as a benefit to themselves. 
BTW--our food in Canada is also NOT labelled as GMO content

David Morris Since 2008, "Survival Dave" has taught more than 10,000 people how to survive long term breakdowns in civil order in urban areas­without having to run away to a fully stocked rural retreat. His students range from lifelong Spec-Ops operators & paramedics to newlyweds & retirees just waking up to preparedness. They all share a common desire to "be the solution" when disasters happen rather than depending on government to save the day.

Subject: WHY IS CANADA AT WAR IN LIBYA?

Joe--thanks for the videos on Libya. 
Thank God there is one news agency that isn't afraid to speak the truth.  
Here is an article I found this morning
http://www.opinion-maker.org/2011/07/natos-war-against-libyas-civilians/

I wonder if the 'new ' leaders of Libya will set up special homes for those affected by DU?  The very fact that NATO is bombing homes set up to aid kids with Downs Syndrome and crippled women among others puts a lie to the NATO mantra that Gadhaffi is a monster.  My cousin has a Down's Syndrome child and you have no idea the hell they have gone through here in Canada looking for help.

Subject: Only booming China, not bankrupt U.S., can help Afghanistan

The Editor
The Globe and Mail
 
Only booming China, not bankrupt U.S., can help Afghanistan
 
Re "Defining 'success' in Afghanistan and Iraq," by Neil Reynolds and "Debt disacussion hits stalemate," by Konrad Yakabuski (July 11).
 
Recently, I returned from a month-long visit to Shanghai, Beijing and other cities of China. It has been a rewarding experience to see a vast country on the march. While the United States and other developed nations slowly recover from the recession, China is growing at an amazing rate of 10 per cent. With Maglev (magnetically levitated) trains running at a breakneck speed of 430 kilometres per hour linking Shanghai with the international airport, Shanghai looks like a city of the future. Its super highways and expressways were filled with late model cars. China has already overtaken the US as the world's biggest market for cars. As Financial Times columnist Martin Wolf noted: "The West's reputation for financial and economic competence is in tatters, while that of China has soared."

I witnessed China's industrial might while visiting Shanghai's huge container port­the world's largest. As far as the eye can see, ships of all sizes were loading and unloading containers (mostly loading). It was almost an intimidating demonstration of China's industrial clout. Recently, China has overtaken the United States as the world's greatest trading nation. China has also displaced the U.S. as Japan's and South Korea's biggest trading partner. It has also displaced the U.S. as India's and Brazil's biggest trading partner. And the United States is running a huge trade deficit of $340 billion vis-à-vis China. In fact, China is now bankrolling America's trillion-dollar budget deficit.

China is also on the way to bypassing America as the centre for research and development. While a bankrupt America is finding it difficult to provide the financial resources needed for research, China is targeting a number of critical areas of science where it intends to be one among the world's leaders. Dr. Jing Naihe, director of Shanghai's Institute for Biochemistry and Cell Biology, said that "Our top stem cell labs are among the world's best" and in "10 years we should be at the top." As the US space program winds down mainly because of the financial crunch, China's space program is being expanded. China has already sent astronauts to the space. Now it is gearing up for manned missions to the moon and beyond. Top Chinese scientists working abroad are returning to China because it now has the resources to provide them with first class facilities. Once upon a time, America used to be a magnet for such talents.

With the United States facing bankruptcy at home, it is not in a position to provide financial and economic support to Afghanistan.  It has been borrowing from China to sustain its war efforts in Afghanistan.  As such, it should step aside and urge China to provide financial support to Afghanistan directly as China has also a stake in preventing any Taliban takeover. Afghanistan borders China's restless Muslim-majority province of Xingqiang and the Muslim extremism may spill over to China in the event of a Taliban return to power in Afghanistan.

The Dog That Cornered Osama Bin Laden ... not your standard K9...nor is ...
This is really something!
When U.S. President Barack Obama went to Fort Campbell, Kentucky,
for a highly publicized, but very private meeting with the commando team
that killed Osama bin Laden, only one of the 81 members of the super-secret
SEAL DevGru unit was identified by name: Cairo, the war dog.
Cairo, like most canine members of the elite U.S. Navy SEALs, is a Belgian
Malinois. The Malinois breed is similar to German shepherds but smaller and
more compact, with an adult male weighing in the 30-kilo range.
