If Rolf Dinsdale plans to run again here, I strongly suggest that he establish an official residence here and get a job here, and that he do it yesterday.

Good to hear from Zack Gross this past Monday in his Small World column about all the fair trade conferences and fair trade shops opening, I guess. However, what I would like to see is some real convincing evidence that the stuff being grown in a poor country and subsequently “traded fairly” through fair trade networks results in Third World farmers becoming less poor.
Make a list and check it for anything positive
To Westman, I ask you to make a list of all the faults that you find with the Harper government — from losing the Wheat Board monopoly to losing the cattle operation at the Brandon Research Station to veterans not being treated properly. Make that list and then let me know why you vote for the Conservative party.
