Hiatus - Apologies
I have been unusually slow in terms of up-dating this blog. It's not for lack of content to write about. The CMA is embarrassing itself currently on the issue of conscientious objection and assisted dying, behaving like a true trade union would, without muc...

Future Infectious Catastrophic Disease Outbreaks: Ethics of Emergency Access to Unregistered Medical Interventions and Clinical Trial Designs
The mass media excitement about Ebola has receded. The 2014-2015 West African outbreak has been brought under
control not thanks to the deployment of successful treatment regimes, because
there are none that are known to work. I participated recently in an

Quixotian attack on Bioethics journals leads to retraction
I have blogged a few weeks ago on this website about a Quixotian attempt by a team of authors aimed at blaming leading mainstream subscription based bioethics journals for their alleged imperialist nature and what not else. A version of this blog entry has ...

Trudeau Curtails Harper's Anti-Choice Activist End-of-Life Panel Activities
This is brilliant. Former PM Stephen Harper appointed in the dying weeks of his government a smallish panel of anti-choice activists to advise his government on how to implement the Supreme Court of Canada's ruling on assisted dying. The CBC reports today t...

Do we need a delay on the implementation on assisted dying in Canada?
There's movement on the assisted dying frontiers. Yesterday representatives of religious organisations held a press conference declaring that they are opposed to assisted dying and that we ought to strive to improve palliative care. As far as I can see they...

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...
