Re: Avcanada forums.

I agree but why are all the threads locked in the Water Cooler? You want someone to post, unlock some threads. Maybe the old members got turned off with the hacking! I believe it was the ‘Attawapiskat’ post that got the mod’s nervous.. and for good reason. Once section 13 of the CHRC is repealed, w...

Buggery and sodomy are the same..But you knew that, right?

Highly paid people who could ruin your life forever are not as smart as you are, apparently: Canadian Supreme Court Justice doesn’t know what ‘buggery’ means............

Re: Occupy "Your City"

Jealousy and shame is the motivation behind Canada’s radical leftists. They would never admit jealousy is what drives them. In fact, they probably don't even recognize that trait in themselves. But the way the radical left looks at things is not what they have, but what others have. They obsess that...

That was a fantastic tribute by Simmons.
God bless America, the best neighbours Canada could ever hope for. Happy Thanksgiving to all south of the border, both our countries have much to be thankful for.

Re: Don Cherry - A Great Canadian Pecked By A Thousand Sparr

Never heard of this dame... another French language activist or simply a Don Cherry hater? She’s out of line and it’s none of her business to pass comment on anyone chosen to receive this honorary degree. Don Cherry is a friend of the military and he’s sincere. This is sickening, but Don has pushed ...

Re: Attention investors, the pain train is about to hit-Mond

TFSA's are quite the gift. It's worth considering topping one up even if you have to borrow to do it, especially if you can use a secured LOC in the 3 to 4 percent range. Another 2 years and two months and you can have 25 k to invest with no capital gains tax. If you're young and willing to be a li...
