I am actually a very kind person and would like to send Ron Thornton
a  Get Well Card but I dont have his snail mail address.  
Anyway Ron, there is help available even for people that appear to be
very challenged.   Good Luck.
Ray Strachan ...   PS am also sending a beautiful  card to
Mr. Harper.   Mayhap you would be able to get a job as
his  driver. There seems to be doubts that he will have a taxpayer
paid person  after the next election. God  it hurts me to think
that could happen. He is such an honest,gentle soul.

Subject: Harper should listen to Aristotle and step aside

The Editor
The Toronto Star
 
Harper should listen to Aristotle and step aside
 
Re: "Why Stephen harper should step down," by Thomas Walkom
(Nov. 23).
 
Aristotle once remarked that all forms of government -- democracy,
oligarchy, monarchy, tyranny -- are inherently unstable; that all
political regimes are inherently transitional; that the stability of all
regimes is corrupted by the corrosive power of time. To prolong the
viability of democratic system of government, his advice had been rapid
turnover of leaderships to renew the democratic process.
 
After nearly eight years in power, Prime Minister Stephen Harper is
clearly showing the signs of "the corrosive power of time," as
evident from controversies surrounding Conservative Senators Mike Duffy,
Pamela Wallin and Patrick Brazeau and his response to them. As such, he
should listen to the great political thinker of the antiquity and step
aside, allowing a new leader rejuvinate the Conservative party. And he
should do it soon to allow the new leader enough time to prepare for the
next election .As a democrat, he should step down to help renew the
political process and not for the reasons articulated by Thomas Walkom.

Subject: Who would replace PM ?
From: Robert G. Sheehan-Gauthier,
Mr. Joe Hueglin, Publisher,
The Daily Digest,
November 27, 2013.
Hello, Joe,
 
RE: Who would replace PM ?
 
What has been mis-labelled the "Senate Scandal" by the media
would more accurately be called the failed "Harper-Caper" with
sub-cast Wallin-Duffy, designed to usurp the authority of Canada's
democratic system to the self-serving political advantage of a
desperately ambitious prime minister "employing dirty play as part
of a deliberate strategy of winning at all costs," as he wrote in
his hockey book, A Great Game.
This offer by PM Stephen Harper of Senate seats and the misplaced
acceptance by unqualified candidates Wallin and Duffy, who should have
declined Harper's attractive, have poisoned and undermined the very
foundation of the Canadian House of Commons and the Senate - both houses
of he the Parliament of Canada.
The Prime Minister of Canada knowingly ignored the residency requirement
for Duffy and Wallin that has come back to haunt him and all 35,000,000
Canadians. Harper placed his own political interests ahead of those of
Canadians and in so doing set off a chain of events that continues to
cost taxpayers millions of dollars, seriously disrupts the functioning of
our Government and Parliament and needlessly importunes the lives,
families and careers of numerous innocent people working on Parliament
Hill.
  Who would replace the PM ? Someone who would adhere to the rule of
law, not be a dissembler, and not throw his own friends under the bus
when things go wrong.

Subject: if not Harper--Who  DD
Joe--or did he mean Harper hears a Who???  Sadly, Harper has
just continued the plan of Canada becoming obedient to corporations and
money.  I have been saying for years that we have no one to vote
for.  They are all the same but Harper has made it more obvious than
ever.  If there is one thing he is better at it is giving Canada to
the NWO.  As he stated previously "Canada may lose some
sovereignty but that is necessary"!!!
Harper allowing GMO fish is not a surprise--it is another rich foreign
corporation that wants this.  I looked up the company that wants
this in Canada--and Harper bows to their wishes and demands in spite of
the decimation it will cause to the country and the world

Missing Permits Raise Stakes for Escape of AquaBounty's Genetically
Engineered Salmon
http://www.cornucopia.org/2013/11/missing-permits-raise-stakes-escape-aquabountys-genetically-engineered-salmon/
Washington, D.C. ­AquaBounty's experimental production facility of
genetically engineered (GE) salmon in Panama is missing multiple legally
required permits and inspections, including a wastewater discharge
permit, according to an administrative claim filed today in Panama by the
environmental group Centro de Incidencia Ambiental de Panama
(CIAM).
The FDA is considering commercial approval of AquaBounty's GE salmon
allegedly based on a scenario in which AquaBounty would produce GE salmon
eggs at a facility in Prince Edward Island, Canada, which are then
shipped to the facility in Panama to be grown to harvest. Fillets would
then be shipped to American consumers. However, significant questions
about the viability and legality of this plan continue to emerge.

Subject: Minorities over-represented in prison: report  DD
Joe--does this mean that minorities are responsible for more of the
crimes committed in Canada?  But since they are minorities they
should get special treatment???
A criminal is a criminal but that seems to escape the report. 
Minority criminals file complaints??  What about their victims--are
they allowed to file complaints or be reimbursed by these criminals?
A crime is a crime but this article makes it seem as if it is our fault
that these minorities commit crimes. 
Commit the crime, do the time--and don't expect special treatment because
you are a minority.
