I don't automatically assume that Pollution Probe will simply get bought by Inco.
Imagine how much better served the environment would be if its so-called eco-advocates stopped fighting these bitchy little turf wars and pooled their energy.

Later on he says "it is not for me to comment on whether or not justice was served... as I did not hear all the evidence put to the jury."
You would think that a professor of law would at least be able to work through an essay without making a fool of himself.
What kind of law is it you teach Mr. Young? Or do you just hate the cops so much?
Jay Waters, Toronto
Young has never pretended to have all the answers. He's always been a straight shooter. The battle for drug liberty is a political one and not a legal one. And in that battle, Alan has been a beam of enlightenment.
On behalf of many other activists who know of and appreciate all the hard work and sacrifice Young has dedicated to the cause of restoring dignity to the justice system, may I say thank you from the bottom of our hearts.

Greens seek to achieve left-wing ends using right-wing means. We wouldn't subsidize housing but would instead shift taxes from buildings onto land so the market would build plenty of low-cost housing on less land, without interference. Additionally, a Green government would invest only in defensive weaponry. We would finance more of the federal debt through the Bank of Canada. We would use creative tariffs to assist value-added production and reduce raw resource exports. Green taxes would be applied to reduce sprawl, phase out fossil fuels and nuclear power, and eliminate garbage and pesticides.
Our ideas may not be for everyone, and a few may move to other parties, but many more are joining us.

This is about uniting, wherever we come from, in finding a path toward peace and sustainability on earth.
Unfortunately, Klein was misinformed about the 13-moon calendar and the 260-day cycle. The first is a mathematically perfect count of the days in a year - 13 months of 28 days each (the number and duration of the moon's revolution around the earth), seven days in a week, four weeks in a month, plus one day out of time equals 365 days. No need for leap years; it is totally natural and exact. The 260 cycle is not arbitrary. It was discovered by the Mayans as a fractal of the 26,000-year cycle of our galaxy. It is also reflected in the 260-day period of human gestation in the womb.

The whole "switching perspectives" idea could've been accomplished with far less celluloid.
Don't get me wrong. I went into the film expecting that it was intentionally superficial and shallow. It didn't work. In terms of actual substance, Elephant was disappointingly empty and frivolous.
Van Sant obviously did no research on the subject. If he had, the film could have been subtle and disturbing. Perhaps he might have taken an honest second look at the gay shower scene to see how silly and gratuitous its inclusion was.
What this film needed was a good editor.

I felt a pain in my gut thinking of all these brainwashed people taking it in like gospel. Pathetic. I'm no fan, but this looks like a witch hunt to me.
