  • I haven't read the full details of the Gun Registry Bill but I assume its about guns and it being registered, right? Why is registering guns bad?

  • Now, the following is off topic, but I will simply blame (If that is okay with everyone else.) that small oversight on my ADHD, assuming that is not being politically incorrect and no feelings are hurt by my doing so.

    It is possible that there are still some individuals that do not believe that it may be a truism that the real world is filled with a Gordian knot of contradictions that cannot simply be eliminated by the egocentric sweep of one's ideological hand. And yet, we seem to be witnessing the slow motion train wreck of an entire ideological, social, and political experiment. Consider the following: "Air force officers working on the purchase of Canada's new fighter planes expected there would (be) a competition this year for the multibillion-dollar deal, according to Defense Department documents obtained by the Ottawa Citizen. The plan written by officers for the Next Generation Fighter Capability project called for a 'competitive process' for both the aircraft and the long-term maintenance contract, according to a project outline developed in the summer of 2009."--'Air force wanted a competition for fighter jets', The Calgary Herald, Monday, September 20, 2010. (To be continued . . . .)

    "According to MacKay, the government had to move on the F-35 purchase to avoid any gap between the arrival of a(sic) new planes and the phasing out of the current fleet of CF-18 fighter jets. But the fighter replacement timeline, obtained by the Ottawa Citizen through access-to-information law, suggested there would be no issues with a gap. According to that timeline, running a competitive process this year would allow for a contract to be signed in 2012, with aircraft delivered in 2015-16. Those planes would become operational between 2018 and 2023, according to the documents."--'Air force wanted a competition for fighter jets', The Calgary Herald, Monday, September 20, 2010. See also: Calgary Grit: 'This Week In Calgary: Barb Higgins Jumps Into The Field'. Furthermore, the resulting flameout and subsequent crash and burn of Sun Media and Ezra Levant as a consequence of the tawdry George Soros debacle only serves to reinforce the metaphor of a slow motion train wreck.--See for example: Dawg's Blawg: 'Ethical Oil' and comments by 'crusher'.

  • When do we start the Small Computer Registry, since so many crimes have been committed by computer?

    Or isn't it about how people commit crimes?

    He has just gamed & scammed the good people of his riding because uber downtown Toronto elitist Whacko Jacko twisted his spindly socialist arm.

  • Anonymous I bet you Stoffer will get the same vote, +/- 4 percent, that he did in 2008.

    Why not go all the way, and close down the registry of motor vehicles, too? Cars don't kill people, people kill people.
    In all seriousness, most people seem OK with the intrusion into their privacy represented by registering their car. Vehicle registration is expensive, it doesn't stop car theft, and it doesn't stop the use of cars by criminals, but you don't see a single provincial government out there talking about how vehicle registration is wastefully expensive and intrusive. Why not?

    Knives kill a lot of people, but there is no knife registry. Why not?
