He was asked to put "the" gun down which he did. The video is not clear but no gun seemed to be pointed at the policeman and he was shot a split second after putting the gun down.

Only the Chinese are calling them territorial waters. The ship is 75 miles out and international rules say territorial waters exten out to only 12 miles from shore. Actually, Canada and other countries claim more than 12 miles from shore. Yeah, but usually those claims are ignored anyway. Hell Cana...

If the government does not convince media consumers that the copyright law is logical, reasonable, and not a cop out to special interest groups, then no one will take it seriously, irrespective of any consequences. But that is impossible. :) http://www.newswise.com/articles/view/549822/?sc=dwhn I h...

The big question is what are those people actually buying when they donate such large sums of money to a candidate? As we all know, illegal things often go on in and out of government and if setting the bar a little lower stops that, it's worth the effort. The fact that Kennedy like this is a great...

In stock market terms: American banks are down so gold is up. If the banks bounce back, then gold will go down again. Our banks are in better shape, so from an investment perspective, it would be smart to buy Canadian bank stock. If gold goes down, then it should be bought as well. With both gold an...

According to Consumer's Reports, Samsung is the best in most size ranges. LCD by the way is better for use in rooms with ambient light. Plasma TVs require a darker room.

"The power to make preventative arrests, without a warrant of anyone suspected of planning a terrorist attack" That is way to vague and arbitrary.

I guess I have a hard time trying to understand why I who am not working at the time have to shell out EI premiums that will go to the laid off auto workers and the senior union members will be still working because of billions of dollars in bail out money so they can keep a job that I could do mor...

Back to the topic,I think the brothers and sisters of CAW should take a 50% paycut effective immediately. To show their serious about keeping the job's here.

As I pointed out again and again, the people shot in BC's recent drug gang war were all on bail for weapons offences. If they were in jail, those shootings could not have happened.
