The Seattle Times Sunday Seattle Post-Intelligencer, June

Canadians arrest 17 in alleged terror plot by Ian Austen and David Johnston

"...police and intelligence officials said they had been monitoring the group for some time and moved in to make the arrests Friday after the group arranged to take delivery of three tons on ammonium nitrate, a fertilizer that can be made into an explosive when combined with fuel oil.

"...by comparison, the 1995 bombing...in Oklahoma City that killed 168 people was carried out 'with only one ton of ammonium nitrate'

"...The 17 men were mainly of South Asian descent and most were in their teens or early 20s. One was 30 years old and the oldest was 43, police officials said. None had any known affiliation with al-Qaida.

"'They represent the broad strata of our society...Some are students, some are employed, some are unemployed'.

"...The Toronto Star, citing an unidentified source, said the group had a list that included the Parliament Buildings in Ottawa as well as the Toronto branch office of the Canadian Security Intelligence Service....

"Five were under the age of 18 and not identified by the authorities.

"The others were identified as Fahim Ahmad, 21; Zakaria Amara, 20; Asad Ansari, 21; Shareef Abdelhaleen, 30; Qayyum Abdul Jamal, 43; Mohammed Dirie, 22; Yasim Abdi Mohamed, 24; Jahmall James, 23; Amin Hohamed Durrani, 19; Steven Vikash Chand, alias Abdul Shakur, 25; Ahmad Mustafa Ghany, 21; and Saad Khalid, 19.

"The FBI issued a statement Saturday saying there was a 'preliminary indication' that some of the Canadian suspects might have had 'limited contact ' earlier this year with two people from Georgia who were recently arrested. Those two were Ehsanul Islam Sadequee, 19, an American of Bangladeshi descent, and Syed Haris Ahmed, 21, a Pakistani-born American."

The FBI said that the two had been making 'casing' videos of different sites in Washington, D.C.

terrorist attack

Perhaps in the near future Canada will experience a shock comparable to Oklahoma City, if not Sept. 11th. (Could that throw Canada into a Phony Fourth?)

Canada's Upcoming Retirement Crisis

I got the link from today's Government Executive.

Federal departments face a labour crisis if they don't come up with long-term plans for the kind of workers they need to replace the thousands of baby boomers retiring by 2011, warns the guardian of Canada's non-partisan public service.

Projections suggest about 40 per cent of the public service will retire in five years, but departments aren't developing hiring strategies to handle that turnover, says Maria Barrados, president of the Public Service Commission.

She said departments are so focused on filling jobs day-to-day that they aren't planning for the workforce they need for the future. As a result, managers rely on temporary, stop-gap staffing, such as hiring casuals, terms and plunking people in "acting" positions.
Here is the full link.

Right Arrow The Maple Syrupry Seeps Northward, ever Northward!!!

The BBC reports that the GWN is in Our Commercial Republic's "International Territory".


http://news.bbc.co.uk/2/low/americas/6287436.stm

Canada has announced plans for six naval patrol vessels and a deep-water port in the north to assert its claim to territorial waters in the Arctic.

Other countries, including the US, say the waters are international territory.The $3bn (1.5bn) announcement at Canada's Pacific naval base comes in part to fulfil an election promise.Ottawa also sees economic potential in protecting its claim to the Arctic, as the area is thought to be rich in natural resources.

Exactly 40 years ago today:

This happened!
But maybe if the putative Robin Hoods stopped trying to take from law-abiding citizens and give to criminals, take from men and give to women, take from believers and give to anti-believers, take from citizens and give to "undocumented" immigrants, and take from heterosexuals and give to homosexuals, they might have a lot more success in taking from the rich and giving to everyone else.

United North America

Check out these folks:

United North America

After reading their FAQ I thought they had a pretty good idea going. But then I lurked on their forum and they seemed like a bunch of loons!

The Quebec separatist movement is run by republican bastards, so they must be opposed with the fullest force, being enablers of American imperialism.

HAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA!!!
To recommend thrift to the poor is both grotesque and insulting. It is like advising a man who is starving to eat less.

Happy Free Quebec Day!

Huh, you ask?

Well it was on this date in 1967 that Charles DeGaulle shouted Vive le quebec libre! from that balcony in Montreal, which has been a must-see tourist attraction ever since.

This, along with Orange Beer Day, has always been one of my favorite personal "holidays."

I guess Canada is Idle No More, eh?

"There have always been people who say: "The war will be over someday." I say there's no guarantee the war will ever be over. Naturally a brief intermission is conceivable. Maybe the war needs a breather, a war can even break its neck, so to speak. But the kings and emperors, not to mention the pope, will always come to its help in adversity. ON the whole, I'd say this war has very little to worry about, it'll live to a ripe old age."

About 2 years ago when I peeked out from my parenting duties to examine the state of the world, one of the early things I found was a website saying the Fourth Turning was going to be about the people vs. the corporations. I immediately thought that was probably true, and none of what has transpired since then has made me change my mind. This post below with it showing that corporations could sue Canada over their laws that affect their profit doesn't change my mind about this at all. The corporations are further and further worming their way into controlling all the governments of the world. This is the issue to fix in this turning.

- Chapter 11 of NAFTA allows any U.S. business to sue our federal, provincial or municipal governments if the company thinks a law will hurt its profits or future profits. This could bankrupt us! And it's undemocratic because our governments are afraid to pass laws that protect us.

- Our health-care and education systems are being privatized because NAFTA -- and soon the World Trade Organization -- says they are "open season"! Do we really want our health care run by U.S. conglomerates? Think about it.
