Concern regarding Canada's Arctic Ice Caps

The increasing loss of Canada's Arctic Ice Caps is mostly man made.  Regardless, the Harper Government continues to stall on imposing restrictions on damaging emissions from the Alberta Tar Sands.  The Harper Government monitors the loss of Canada's Arctic Ice Caps, understands the causes and consequences to our environment, and still fails to act. Canadians have no recourse than to trust the Harper Government to act responsibly respecting this important matter, but when.

Smokers pay for New Spending

Apparently, we can thank smokers for the new spending announced in the Harper Government's recent budget.  The new spending amounts to $700 million.  The Harper Government will rake in $700 million, in new revenue, from their increase on tobacco products.

The Harper Government holds the record for the largest debt in Canadian history and Harper is now asking the middle class and smokers to help him bail out of the debt he created.  The divide between the rich and the poor has only widened under the Harper Government.

The Harper government has no idea how to balance a budget and if they do, it will be in 2015 before the next federal election.  If Canadian voters give Stephen Harper another four years at the next election, expect more deficit budgets and an ever-increasing Canadian debt.

Stephen Harper is singing, "Please Release Me."  In the interests of Canada Harper must be released and allowed to pursue his real talent of playing the piano.

2014 Sochi Olympics

In Canada, we could not be more tolerant of individual human rights regardless of the nature of what that may be from time to time.  I make no arguments in this regard.

It is unfortunate the issue of human rights is in the spotlight in the lead up to the 2014 Sochi Olympics.  It seems to me that the spotlight should be on all the athletes, regardless of issues surrounding human rights.  If the Olympics were to be a venue for opposing what countries believe then a promo tent for democracy would be appropriate in communist Russia.

I have a passion for tennis and there are no human rights issues in professional tennis played in countries all over the world.  I have a passion for most sports.  I admire and am thrilled with the skills of both amateur and professional athletes regardless of who they are, what they are, or where they come from.  Lets shine a light on the skills of the athletes.

We can fight the Russians on human rights after the Olympics and then ask what human rights our Veterans have in Canada.  Let the games begin!
