Fresh from limiting the parliamentary debate, at second reading, on its proposed anti-terror law, the government is now resisting opposition calls for an extensive review of Bill C-51 by the Commons committee on public safety and national security.
In choosing to limit debate and expert witnesses on the proposed new anti-terror bill, the Harper government is showing it hasn't learned from the past, Chris Hall writes. Being tough on terror may be popular, but public approval is no substitute for public scrutiny.

The winter's deep freeze has transformed Niagara Falls into an icy spectacle, encasing the trees around it into crystal shells — a sight that's drawing tourists.

 Many have welcomed the increased role of data journalism, praising its capacity to shed light on the cold hard facts which were often at the mercy of ideology and conjecture. But what role doesit ...

Assisted Dying coming to Canada
What a week this past week has been. While I was away on a business trip to Europe the Supreme Court of Canada (SCC) let it be known that it would release on Friday this week its decision on the so-called Carter case, that is, it would pronounce on the cons...

“Denmark’s government has brought in a ban on the religious slaughter of animals for the production of halal and kosher meat, after years of campaigning from welfare activists”

Anti-Semitism or Islamophobia?  I sincerely hope NEITHER :-)

Polls show growing support for mercy killing of those dying of ‘catastrophic’ physical illnesses, but the public is far more nervous when it comes to mental disorders such as depression

Der Angriff der Terroristen in #Paris galten nicht 'nur' dem französische Satire-Magazin Charlie Hebdo, nicht 'nur' Medien oder radikaler Kritik. Sie galten uns, unserer #Freiheit. Einer Freiheit, die nicht nur von Terroristen und Extremisten bedroht wird, sondern auch von #Fundamentalisten jeglicher religiöser oder ideologischer Couleur, die hinter mühsam errungene Freiheiten zurück wollen. Es ist an der Zeit, dass gerade auch wir #Schwule und #Lesben #LGBT* den Wert unserer Freiheiten erkennen und wieder schätzen, und - dass wir den Arsch hoch bekommen und für sie eintreten. Freiheit braucht #Engagement.

I have eaten a few times in this pub. Frankly, I have no idea why people complain about the food or its prices. This is distinctly above-your-average pub-food quality, and the prices are very reasonable. Try the spring rolls for current 11$, they're nearly a meal replacement, that's how substantial the portions are. Service is ok, well, and as to the interior. It's an odd mix of stuff. In the back they've the venue for life performances, then another section with piles of pool tables, a large patio for the summer months and then yet another section for dance music which is also used for diners. It's just a massive place, nothing cozy about it, but I'm glad it is in the neighbourhood. Service is also usually friendly and competent.

I love this little gem of an airport. Most convenient for flights to Chicago and onwards. They offer free espresso, parking and wifi. Delightful.

Must say that I am a bit bemused about this company.I own various of its products, including two imacs, an ipad (1st gen), a macbook air and a timecapsule. Well, one of the imacs (cost me new about 1700$ or thereabouts) crapped up on me within less than two years and the Apple geniuses in Ottawa tell me that it would cost me 800$ to fix a component that should be working flawlessly for another couple of yrs. The Ipad shuts down programs randomly for no good reason at all, the brand new Timecapsule didn't work at all. Might all be coincidence, of course, but really I think at this stage that their hardware sucks beyond belief. I'm pretty much giving up on Apple and will buy a cheaper competitor's product (they won't offer much worse performance and reliability either, unfortunately, but at less than half the Apple price). I'm puzzled that this company believes it will survive by charging the living hell out of people for its products and offering precious little quality in return. Bit like Vaio really, this premium brand eventually also sank without a trace due to continuing quality issues. And no, Apple genius, it ain't good enough to charge another 800 $ for a repair that should never have been necessary at that point in the life of the computer...
