    In Canada, after a federal election, federal parties receive a grant from the federal government equivalent to $1.75 Canadian for every vote that the party received. The newly re-elected Conservative government tried to repeal that subsidy of political parties: The opposition said the update did not contain needed stimulus for an economy increasingly squeezed by the global downturn, but they were most angered by a | Read More »

    Canadian results

    Several things to note from the Canadian elections. The Conservatives picked up 19 seats, but only 1.1% of the vote and the lowest turnout in Canadian history. The most significant feature of this election was the collapse of the Liberal Party out west and in Ontario. (they actually beat many polls in Quebec) The socialist party, the New Democratic Party or NDP, cut into Liberal | Read More »

    The Polar Bears Aren’t Drowning – Yet

    Reports of the demise of the Arctic icepack apparently have been greatly exaggerated. A three ship Canadian exploration fleet got stuck in the ice off Pt. Barrow, Alaska yesterday. The Anchorage Daily News story is here: http://www.adn.com/news/alaska/story/485134.html Unlike we silly Americans, our socialist neighbors to the north, my east, actually explore, drill, and even mine natural resouces – they even cut trees!
