Winter would seem to be a peak time of demand for power. Is this (link, excerpts below) what you can rely on? Power only for nice weather? And you can bet there are some sweet subsidies. Northern New Brunswick wind turbines frozen solid FREDERICTON — A $200-million wind farm in northern New Brunswic...

I won't get into the whole handing out bibles to kids debate except to say religion shouldn't be forced down anyone's throat. I am generally pro-religion. However, the right place for religious education to occur is in homes, synagogues and churches, and not at public schools. I am not against the ...

The Jew thing was a refelection of mainstream thought at the time. The US was as anti-semitic as any western country. Anti-semitism still simmers below a thin veneer of 'tolerance' in a lot of countries to this day. Nothing new or shocking about King's statement. I totally agree with you on this po...

Second, one quote-mined comment compared to American isolationism is not only historically problematic, but it ignores Canadian sacrifices in the process. While King's contemporary (and political) worldview prejudicial, he did still send troops to fight the Nazi scourge well before Americans. No qu...

No, as Alberta isn't a city. You're thinking of Edmonton, in Alberta. Duh! The Western cities grew not because the were close to the border, but because they were close to the CP rail line. Which was built to defend the border. You build a rail line which can easily be cut to defend a border? Stran...

Gee, weren't the Americans Johnny come Lately's in both world wars? Definitely for WW II. Remember for WW I that was originally a European war, and Canada was only dragged in since it had noforeign policy machinery yet. That came, I believe, in waves starting in 1931, 1944 and 1982. In WW II the U....

I gotta agree with JBG on this one Brock. I still find it interesting to know why people choose to come here. I also feel this may be a bit of a catch 22 for anyone else who's interested in this or any other old topic. Reply to an old topic and ur accused of necro'ing, start your own thread to disc...

In her time, it was the Vietnamese. Now it's Arabs, specifically those that practice Islam. Is anybody horrified of the Vietnamese anymore?
On the other hand are the Vietnamese at war with the West?

Your 'point' makes no sense JBG.
Is it not a fact that except for Alberta almost all major Canadian cities cluster along the U.S. border?

I see no problem with them building a border fence to keep out suicide bombers, but I see a huge problem with them confiscating all the arable farmland in the West Bank from Arab families that have also lived there for centuries in order to give the best of the available resources to a bunch of tro...

Is vermin a reference to all Arabs?

I didn't use that term. I happen to have great admiration for the accomplishments of the Arabs and Muslims.

The railroad was built so far south because all the people lived there. Building it further north would have been a fine idea but nobody would have used it. Don't forget that Upper Canada was founded by American loyalists, hence the lack of northward travel. Lots also came to Nova Scotia and New Br...

How come you want to put China or Russia on our southern border, but won't let me put he Scandinavian countries? The US isn't the worst country in the world. My point is that with it's wealth it should be a better country than it is.

Countries, and people, can always improve themselves.

Dig around. Lots more intriguing posts. Just try and be original kids. Old threads are old for a reason. Maybe but some are "evergreen" as is this one. Rather than having a phony "welcome new members" section a great perpetual thread may be for people to describe their even bein...

Perhaps. Of course without the access to the abundant & cheap resources as well as an educated and skilled workforce your lifestyle would also suffer. We don't have much of your workforce. Perhaps a few doctors that are chased away by socialized medicine. With Russia or China on your northern b...
