Canada And The Solar Eclipse

Much of Canada will be left in the dark during the upcoming solar eclipse on Monday, August 21st (that’s a very good thing) – but we will only have a partial eclipse in Canada of between 26 and 90% coverage.  Still, that will be enough to get great photos in most cities, should the weather

The CBC: Public Broadcasting Piggy

On November 28, 2016, the Canadian Broadcasting Corporation (CBC) came up with a bold new revenue concept – just ask the federal Liberal government for more money.  $400 million more, to be exact, so Mother Corp. wouldn’t have to face the gruesome task of having to sell ads.

The Fleecing of Alberta

The NDP government in Alberta released its budget yesterday and tried, with “fingers crossed”, to push a $10.3 billion deficit down your throats – this after having a $10.8 billion deficit last year.
