Ensign Notes

Summer holidays: That's right, 2003 is the first year since 1991 that we have had a chance to take a holiday. During June, July and the first two weeks of August we will have some intermittant days when Ensign will not post. Our plan is to do some tripping and camping here in Saskatchewan.Stories today and tomorrow only as we have to be away for a little while but check out the site we hope to post as often as possible, destinations include: Battoch & Prince Albert(tomorrow), Regina Thursday, Swift Current, Hazlet, then Crooked Lake for July 1 and then to Winnipeg.

A tax cut for all Canadians
Monday, June 23, 2003
by: Walter Robinson
Good for all Canadians, fair and reasonable the best thing that could be done for the Canadian tax payer is increase the person exemption on Income tax.

The Privatization of the Rule of Law: The Immunity Legislations for tycoon Berlusconi and hegemonic America
Monday, June 23, 2003
by: Mario deSantis
It is disturbing indeed to find out that the Italian Premier merely passes a law to prevent his conviction of corruption but even more disturbing that the United States is forcing nations around the world to sign agreements exempting Americans from War Crimes. Looks like Hitler and Musolini would have been better off to have had better lawyers.

"Psst, Need a new ship for your fleet?"
Monday, June 23, 2003
by: Rebecca Gingrich
Being a wealthy ship owner and claiming that it is in a "blind trust" is just not going to work. Paul Martin may become the leader of the Liberal Party because he has bought and paid for its membership but Canadian voters are unlikely to elect someone who does his banking off shore and has his corporate hand out for corporate welfare.

Space Ship clouds
Sunday, June 22, 2003

No means no!, Harper's cynical approach, and the Doctrine enunciated
Thursday, June 19, 2003
by: Dale Swirsky, Thomas Curran and Joe Hueglin
Unless you are an Alberta separatist few Canadians have much love for the sardonic Stephen Harper but this week he seems to have truly moved over the line and drawn a good deal of displeasure from members of the Progressive Conservative Party. Though each of these stories have a different direction to the condemnation we can see that Harper has ruffled some feathers and combined the three give a good picture of why.

by: Timothy W. Shire

The SIGMA ANALYTICS poll doesn't absolve the bigoted Saskatoon police
Thursday, June 19, 2003
by: Mario deSantis
Yesterday Mario told us how polls were being used to create, rather than measure public opinion, today he gives us an example of this process at work in Saskatoon.

Tunnel Vision
Thursday, June 19, 2003
by: Sherri Northcott
We are very fortunate to be able to bring you this story. Fear and confusion seem to come from things we know nothing about and in this story we have a first hand explanation as to why the courts have made the decisions that have about same sex marriage. Time to widen our view.

Bush&Co's Larger Right Wing Agenda
Thursday, June 19, 2003
by: Mario deSantis
This is a warning, you can choose to ignore the growing body of imperical evidence that points toward what the United States and its leadership are undertaking. But ignore it or not Mario deSantis is backing up his claims in this story with excellent sources who like he are disturbed at what they have discovered.

Wednesday, June 18, 2003
by: Timothy W. Shire

Wednesday, June 18, 2003
by: Joe Hueglin
Read this article carefully as we are proud to be able to bring to you such an exceptional compromise well thought out method of dealing with this emotional issue. Most importantly Mr. Hueglin recognises the vital need for a legal framework be established to guarentee the rights of couples.

The scientific governmental approach to public policies and the Iraq war: Continuous Statistical Polling
Wednesday, June 18, 2003
by: Mario deSantis
If you ask a question it appears that the process in itself will develop an opinion that matches the views of the questioner. By polling continously and acting upon the polling results ignorance and misimformation become the means of government.

by: Timothy W. Shire

Glasair: SH-2F
Tuesday, June 17, 2003
by: Timothy W. Shire
Amateur built kit aircraft are a standard feature of the present general aviation world and the two place composite speed demon that we see here performs well beyond any commerically mass produced aircraft.

Tuesday, June 17, 2003
by: Ron Thornton
Canadians of all parts of the country are a bit purturbed at the recent Ontario Court ruling and may even be more so with the Cabinet decision today to desolve the exclusive heteerosexual meaning of the term "marriage."
