Is it time to give up on Nazi war criminals in Canada?

This article I read in the Toronto Star this week got me thinking; Is it time we abandon the search for Nazi war criminals in Canada? Helmut Oberlander, who has never been found guilty of war crimes but the Federal Copurt has said he lied about his Nazi service during the war is still in Canada. He was a translator for a Nazi mobile killing unit in the Ukraine. No eveidence he ever actively participated in the mass murders but what exactly did a translator do for a Nazi mobile killing unit? He can still be denaturalized and deported for lying about his work as a Nazi translator if the Federal Cabinet moves forward. What do you think?

Is it just me or is the Economic Action Plan Money going to a lot of religious institutes?

I have noticed that a good chunk of tax payer money called "The Economic Action Plan" is going to religious institutes here in Hamilton and finally I saw an article that supported my theory from another part the country.


Please let me know if you have seen anything that relates! 


The dollar tally in Hamilton is 


$986,667 for the Catholic Youth Organization of the Diocese of Hamilton

Losing control of the herd?

First this,

and now this.

With Maurice Vellacott still very darn mad at the idea of gay marriage, and Rob Anders still thinking Nelson Mandela a terrorist and you can see why Harper has them gagged at every opportunity. Let them speak and they'll come out with stuff that helps grow excellent roses.

A Response to Kelly McParland

Kelly McParland of the National Post today published an article oozing with sarcasm and weak humour, pillorying the opposition's ever so outrageous decision to raise questions about the Harper Government's decision to radically change a generation-old status quo in Canadian international development policy favoring modern reproductive practices, access to safe abortion services, sexual education and contraception.

There are times in life where a piece of writing, in tone, argument, substance and spirit is so intolerable one can't help but respond. One sarcastic ideological jape deserves another.

The pollster who couldn't shoot straight

Murray Dobbin
In January, pollster Nik Nano came out saying the whole issue of shutting down Parliament was a big yawn that no one cared about. Really?

Of thugs, CEOs and tax increases

Murray Dobbin
Hardly a week goes by without some other unnerving revelation about the character, or rather the lack of same, of the Prime Minister.
