This vacation is an important adventure for us just as the eighteen years of producing Ensign has been an adventure. We intend to keep going with both. While we are travelling it will depend on weather and circumstance as to being able to post to Ensign. We have outstanding WIFI here in our Ottawa camp site so this update is going well.

Eighteen years is a long time and Though in the past few years I have been unable to devote as much time to the project as in the past I will continue to keep the updates going as best as I can. It is a bit of a challenge posting from the motorhome but I know most of the visitors to this site are patient and understand. As always feel free to send me email with questions or suggestions.

While here in Ottawa I did not get an opportunity to provide members of Parliament or the Senate some of my counsel simply because I know they prefer to get my advise directly from Ensign itself.

Tomorrow we will be in Montreal.

We can play our part in making the lives of First Nations people better. The remedy is pump up the culture. Pride in one’s language and heritage will go a long way in solving everyday problems.

The creeping privatisation movement of the Saskatchewan party has been moving along under the radar but it is happening right across the province. From Jail food to on the side land deals all just a shade away from going into the dark side.

The smartphone is no longer popular, it seems ingrown in the hand of every shopper. No one seems to dare take a single step without it in their hand, ready to use, ready to answer, ready, ready, ready.
