Well, I'm shocked. I didn't think the RCMP had the cojones to investigate their masters.

Think more deeply about the motives of our federal gendarmerie. To quote Marlene Dietrich, "I have a new Fuehrer now."

Don't get your hopes up, people.

Only a fool trusts the hand with a liberal body.

Well, I'll admit I still don't expect them to actually arrest anyone. I'm just shocked that they went so far as to investigate.

My comments are about Ric Dolphrin
s article "Pardon my French"
After several articles by Brant Scott about the negative impact of bilingualism, we get "Pardon my French." I for one, will not pardon his French. Language is for communication, peppering an article in English with all kinds of French expressions, simply means that the author has been indoctrinated by "political correctness" into an acceptance of bilingualism when he is writing for English readers. He also included some borrowing from the barn yard which is not consistent with the standards of Western Standard.

Goodale has just announced that he won't resign or step aside. Says the RCMP have no evidence that anyone did anything wrong (!) and that if he resigned it would provide ammunition to the Opposition in an election campaign (!!).

We are truly in the hands of gangsters.

Patrick B, source?

Also, if it's true, I agree. How does taking responsibility provide ammunition? My total lack of respect for anyone who has anything to do with the Liberal party might be mitigated if they took responsibility for things.

Andrew Coine's editorial in todays F. Post (Wed) provides a very interesting read - pretty much takes P.M. to the mat, so to speak. Could this be heralding the beginning of an acceptance of change by at least a part of the MSM??

Probably not.
