.From: John Feldsted Subject: Our Governor General's Speech to the Canadian Bar Association This is an impressive speech by Our Governor General, His Excellency the Right Honourable David Johnston. It is refreshing to hear a speech exhorting lawyers to regain a reputation currently in tatters. Johnston bluntly tells the law society that if they do not live up to expectations, society will change the rules for them and remove the self-regulation that they enjoy now. Overall, we appear to have a Governor General we can take pride in. About time!

=================================== From: Ron Thornton Subject: Re: Daily Digest August 15, 2011 Hi Joe: I completely agree with the article Glenn Harewood contributed in regards to the Prime Minister of Australia basically telling immigrants to that country that they, not those already there, must adapt, and those who don't like it can leave. Unfortunately, it was attributed to her in 2009, and a year earlier it was attributed to her predecessor. In short, she and he did not say this...it is a hoax. Too bad. The Natroses are disturbed that Stephen Harper not only mangled John Lennon's "Imagine", but commented that his "right wing conservative ideology is so far removed from this song..." They might not have caught the news in June that "The singer's former assistant claims in a new documentary that Lennon was a Ronald Reagan fan and a conservative at the time of his death." Not sure how much the former Beatle changed between the ages of 31 and 40, as many of us do, but he might have liked Harper...though maybe not overly excited about his singing. By the way, I think it is a terrific song, though some might not be in full agreement with all the lyrics. For example, "Imagine there's no Heaven It's easy if you try No hell below us Above us only sky Imagine all the people Living for today" So, no heaven, no hell, live for today? Well, to each their own, but I think too damn many live for today, to hell with the consequences or who it affects. "Imagine there's no countries It isn't hard to do Nothing to kill or die for And no religion too Imagine all the people Living life in peace " Kind of naive, don't you think? King and country aside, folks appears to have tons of reasons to kill. In fact, religion is a great motivator in keeping one on the straight and narrow. No moral guide, and so much for one living life in peace. More like leading lambs to the slaughter. However, you don't have to be 31 years old to yearn for a world where we all lived life in peace. Then again, the singer/songwriter ended his life violently at the hand of someone who lived his own life in fantasy, hoping to impress a person he did not know by taking the life of someone he thought we all did. Not hard to imagine that at 40, John Lennon might have matured to realize his song was that of a 31-year old dreamer, who had a beautiful dream, but one that was never very realistic.  He and Harper might have agreed on more than we think.

Share with your list. =================================== From: Arthur Topham Subject: Genetically Modified People? http://bettysearlyedition.blogspot.com/ =================================== From: Rory J. Koopmans, Subject: FW: MONARCHIST COMMU NIQUE: 'Royal' restored to Canada's Navy and Air Force/"Royale" restitué à la Marine et à l'Aviation du Canada To: Steve Harper, MP   This is why Steve that the Liberal Party of Canada cannot put Justin Trudeau in as a future leader. He might have the son of Paul Hellyer come in as his Defense Minister & take away the designations again. God Save The Queen Steve, & God Save The Conservative Party Of/Du Canada. Power in perpetuity. Majority's IVever! 5 more for Steve Harper alone. Now get Pete to make the Army "Royal" in designation as well & we can stick it to the commie pinko seperatistelements of the Liberals, NDP, Bloc Quebecois as well!   From: Rory J. Koopmans, B. Admin., 15902-100A Avenue NW, Edmonton, AB. T5P 0L8  =================================== From: Robert Ede Subject: "Royal" -restored to Military - how about the governance system? To: "Letters (National Post ...snip... op-ed star <oped@thestar.ca> Cc: Governor General <Marie ...snip... Stephen Harper <pm@pm.gc.ca> EXECUTIVE SUMMARY   Don't you wish the Governor General & Commander-in-Chief had had the public-mandate to step in and stop (or reserve for a National Referendum) some of the other unsustainable,and/or blatantly political and/or unCanadian decisions that rocked the fabric of this country since 1965?   There is no "formula" for selecting the person to be recommended to the Monarch as the GG - let's create an election system and put an end to the "Friendly Dictatorship"(Jeffrey Simpson) running Canada.   Dear Ed,   Hooray! "Royal" will be restored to the names of our Navy & Air Force .... another mistake of our Libertine P.M.'s regime is corrected!   Now, let's go all the way - Restore the "Vice Regal" Office to its proper place as "Benign Autocrat"/supervisor of the gov't/cabinet-of-the-day (and, since 1947's Letters Patent as the Commander-in-Chief in and over Canada).   How? Elected the Governor General!   The GG (see Executive Power Part III ss9-16 BNA 1867, representing the Monarch) has a veto over every Bill and action of the Legislative Power ( Part IV, ss 17-57).   As described in s. vs s13, our Governor General, as an individual, can simply withhold Royal Assent or Reserve any Bill (s.55) for further consideration by HRH (in Canada She's no longer "in Council" since 1982).   By electing the GG (at-large, every other General ConFederal Election, with a term commencing 365 days after return of Writs) we would give a mandate to actually use the double-checking powers crafted by the Fathers of Confederation as integral parts of the "seamless web" that is the BNA 1867.   They saw in 1867 (as we all can see now) how a republic can "lose itself" to self-interest, nationalism/jingoism, partisan politics, zeal-for-re-election, militarism and abuse of the fisc to buy votes from market-segments.   Our Upper House's purpose was lost to some of these frailties (plus inflation because the Senate's disqualifying/qualifying criteria for net-worth & property-ownership were never revised from $4,000 - do the math)   The Senate was intended a the "first-check" on the Democratic Element and the Executive ( GG & Privy Council) were devised as the second-check, with the Monarch-in-Council as ultimate arbiter of the wisdom/folly of any Canadian measure.   Oh yes, that was then and this is now .... but the Constitution/BNA 1867 still reads the same way .... we're just not following its as-written, as-intended provisions.   Don't you wish the Governor General & Commander-in-Chief had had the public-mandate to step in and stop (or reserve for a National Referendum) some of the other unsustainable,and/or blatantly political and/or unCanadian decisions that rocked the fabric of this country since 1965?   There is no "formula" for selecting the person to be recommended to the Monarch as the GG - let's create an election system and put an end to the "Friendly Dictatorship"(Jeffrey Simpson) running Canada.   Canada, I salute you & challenge you,   Whose "Dominion" is Canada in the 21st Century?   rce   PS There's also a Provincial Disallowance Power (s.90) the GG holds "in Council" with the Executive Power's Privy Council. As another restorative step we can rescind Order in Council 1940-1121 (scroll to text at bottom), a wartime, emergency measure of Wm L.M. King that merged the PMO with the Privy Council Office by changing the Clerk's job-description and appointing Mr King's, existing Principal Secretary to the "new", "expanded", anti-constitutional position.   Robert Ede, =================================== From: Rebecca Gingrich _______ Subject: Finance Minister: 'C anada's  rapidly  aging workforce' an urgent problem now...  In  response to the Page report, Dr. Sassone told LifeSiteNews last year that beyond making abortion illegal, "we must  change the attitudes of p eople towards having babies. Everything is our fault for working hard, paying our taxes, raising our children instead of aborting them, living healthy and surviving past age 65?  Logan's Run--is that what they are suggesting?  Hey, they abort babies so it is just a short step to killing off seniors? Becky Finance Minister: 'Canada's rapidly aging workforce' an urgent problem now http://www.lifesitenews.com/news/finance-minister-canadas-rapidly-aging-workforce-an-urgent-problem-now _______ Subject: Households may be powered off remotely by power companies...homes would be required to be fitted with smart meters to allow energy companies and households to communicate electronically.... We are so blessed to live in a democracy where we have a say in things that impact our private lives??? becky Households may be powered off remotely by power companies http://www.dailytelegraph.com.au/news/sydney-nsw/households-may-be-powered-off-remotely-by-power-companies/story-e6freuzi-1226114477616 A Skeptic's Guide to BC Smart Meters http://thetyee.ca/Opinion/2011/08/09/SmartMeterSkeptic/ Smart Meters http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=8JNFr_j6kdI _______ Subject: If only we had a democracy like China--oops--they don't listen to their people but our governments do?   Chinese people power forces closure of chemical factory http://www.telegraph.co.uk/news/worldnews/asia/china/8700549/Chinese-people-power-forces-closure-of-chemical-factory.html _______ Subject: as usual we get no honest reporting from our own media   Leonor Libya Update Misrata etc http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Sc1MDx2W6cg
