I watch the Senator Mike Duffy and Pamala Wallin and other Senators scandals unfold with a sense of foreboding.
It appears we now have a ruling class in Canada. Consisting of Lawyers and unelected members of the Senate, exempt from the laws of the land..If Steven Harper is helping to protect these members, then he is guilty of obstruction of justice.
The first charge against Mr. Duffy et al should be FRAUD , the second is falsifying a report to the government , much the same as a false tax return , and theft for taking the money from taxpayers under false and misleading circumstances.
We as taxpayers may not be as stupid as you think we are.If we were living in a democracy instead of an elected dictatorship than these things would not happen.
It seems that so many politicians and free enterprise companies are being caught breaking the law and suffer no penalty ( SNC Lavalin ) that my respect for right wing thinking is disappearing very quickly.
I suggest fire the thieves and if we were wrong they can file a wrongful dismissal law suit.

In August 2005, crude oil was $147.00 US a barrel, which converted to $175.00 CDN a barrel. Regular gasoline sold for $1.47 per litre.
As of May 16, 2013, crude oil was $95.00 US a barrel or $100.00 CDN a barrel. Regular gasoline is now $1.42 per litre.
We are paying almost 170% more for gasoline now! When will the gouging end? What is wrong with the politicians and maybe what is wrong with us the consumer. If the politicians will not help, we should start by boycotting each major oil company for a month.
Chevron - May, Esso - June, Husky - July, Petro Canada - August and Shell - September and then repeat until the oil companies give us a break.

I take my kids to play in Polson Park and Kin beach. Everyday I can see dog owners getting their dogs and leaving them to run free while they are busy with their own work, even though the signs all say "DOGS ARE NOT ALLOWED".
Then these dogs relieve themselves and the owners don't pick it.
They even scare the kids playing in park. Can the authorities confiscate the dogs and penalize these dog owners as they are breaking the law without any fear.

Recently my dog got away from me while we were at the booster juice in the mission, and sent me on a crazy chase down Gordon Rd.
I would like to thank everyone who helped out trying to grab her and also special thanks to the lady who drove me down the road to grab her instead of having to run anymore.
Thankfully no one was hurt including my crazy dog. Thanks so much it means alot!

The voting information card sent out by the province suggested I vote at RSS Middle School but also stated I could vote at any of three other stations, including Rutland United Church.
I believe the media also stated voters could vote at their choice of locations. I live just down the street from Rutland United, where I have voted in every municipal, provincial and federal election since moving to the area some 15 years ago. However when I turned up there I was advised to go to RSS or else my ballot would be filed under "absentee" and would not be counted for another couple of weeks!
Whose brain cramp was that?
