Is there any hope that our Prime Minister will pause in his sideline cheer leading for Israel long enough to act constructively on behalf of Gaza's wounded children?

Celebrations surrounding the 70th anniversary of the Bretton Woods agreements that created the IMF and the World Bank are low key affairs. It does not help that the U.S. Congress has failed to ratify the most recent agreement to expand the IMF, required to make World Bank resources (tied to IMF borrowing quotas) grow as well.

There is another ridiculous twist in the continuing saga of Canada Post's plan to cut home mail delivery, close post offices and attack its workforce. The roller coaster ride this Crown corporation has taken us on has had some bizarre turns since last December when they announced their five-point plan. From rows of mailboxes being installed in Fort McMurray and pulled out when pictures turn up online, to the CEO's comments about seniors appreciating the exercise of having to walk to their mailbox, Canada Post management is demonstrating not only that this is a terrible plan, but it is a plan that is being implemented by terribly incompetent people.
