Tim's Tip of the Day

An old SeaKing crashed this morning on the deck of the Iroquois. A decade past the time they should have been replaced perhaps a note to the Prime Minister or Minister of Finance would help a bit.

Ensign Notes

An R& D day here at Ensign as new software and techniques are explored.

Budget 2003: Chrétien is hopefully the last of the big time spenders
Tuesday, February 25, 2003
by: Walter Robinson
Last week there was considerable shouting about the 2003 budget now its time to think it over and look carefully at what the government plans to do with the taxes for the next five years. Walter Robinson is fairly critical of a government which in the past has paid little attention to what it does with its money. This story has links to the complete budget.

Canada Loses Face on World Affairs
Tuesday, February 25, 2003
by: Derrall Bellaaire
We need to realise that we must as a country respect ourselves enough to uphold honour and that which is just. Mr. Bellaire puts clarity into the issue that is being tossed into the air like a tennis ball by Washington. You will need QuickTime to hear the short audio clip with this story.

Four voices no accompaniment and a full show entertained a good crowd at the Tisdale Mall Saturday.

The Greenwater report
Monday, February 24, 2003
by: Gerald Crawford
Back from a trip to Alberta Gerald tells us about the cold, his trip and warns us of the upcoming Perigold Rummage Sale.

Oh, what a friend we have in Dion
Monday, February 24, 2003
by: Ron Thornton
Last week the federal minister of intergovernmental affairs and the premier of Alberta exchanged letters and barbs as Alberta separatism is now being identified by the federal government that rarely looks West of Hull River. Ron Thornton takes a serious tongue in cheek look at the issue and for those of us who are not Albertans this is a chilling discussion.

Harbingers of Spring!
Monday, February 24, 2003
by: Doug Ives
As we stick our hands deeper into our pockets to keep them warm Doug Ives sends us flash of things to come as the harsh February light is captured in these outstanding starkly beautiful images from Vancouver.

An affront to the Intelligence of Canadians

Everything has its beginnings and for many people a life-long experience in team sports begins on the ice and its hockey.

Bush's war against Iraq: The last refuge of a scoundrel
Saturday, February 22, 2003
by: Mario deSantis
The US does not want war with Iraq it needs war with Iraq as Mario deSantis spells out the circumstances that make war the only alternative yet the economic ramifications boggle the mind.

Frosty Friday in February
Friday, February 21, 2003
by: Timothy W. Shire
-35ºC this morming and what you see is habitation fog which soon burnt away and for the first time this week we got to see some shadows. Will will show you some pictures of both.

Back into the tar pit
Friday, February 21, 2003
by: Jeff Smith
From his perspective on the coast Jeff Smith tells us about the take over by Paul Martin's Steamship company of an Australia bulk cargo company that then fired the ship's crew and hire Ukrainian crewmen. Makes our country look bad and seems down right mean.
