Tsunami Disaster

This morning people around the world awoke to news of the disaster in the Indian Ocean. This was the largest earthquake to rock our planet in the last half century, and the death-toll is likely to exceed 100,000 when all is said and done.

I urge everyone to donate money to the Red Cross. We must try to prevent a human catastrophe in the region, already thousands are homeless and soon they will be starving as well.

Judy Sgro in Trouble...Again

Liberal MP Judy Sgro appears to be in trouble once again. Already infamous for strippergate, Sgro is now facing accusations that a member of her campaign staff had connections to terrorism.

Sgro,. the Minister of Immigration, fired the staffer some time ago, but denied today in a Globe and Mail report that the individual was fired because of connections to organizations banned in Canada.

Perhaps the time has come for Mrs. Sgro to be fired herself, before she does any more damage to her constituency, her party and her country.

Back From Vacation, Roundup

Time out of town was nice, but I wish I'd been around for the protest in Ottawa. It's about time the citizens of this country stood up to the pathetic administration in the US. Here's a roundup of some of the more important news from while I was gone:

Bush's Visit
link -- Article on the media's coverage of the visit
link -- Ridiculous Post article suggesting the visit was a good sign for Canada.
link -- Ottawa Citizen article which puts the price tag of security for Bush at $2 Million.

Ukranian Election
link -- Ukraine Voted to withdraw its troops from Iraq.
link -- The Ukranian Supreme Court officially invalidated the results of the disputed election.
link -- The EU has called for a new run-off election in the Ukraine.

NHL Strike
link -- There is going to be one last ditch effort to save the NHL season this thursday as the player's association has agreed to return to the bargaining table.
