Will be? Naw, it has been for years. Still, SaskPower is building another 350MW of natural gas to go online in 2019, while building far less than 300MW of wind power by then. They’ve a target of 50% renewable generation by 2030, and still wind is far less than 5% of the grid total. Clearly they’re on the wrong track, and costing rate payers money.
The pompous Saskatchewan Minister of Bad Ideas, serving under the skillfully bad leadership of Premier Brad Wall, has asked people who’ve lost bus service, to just stop hitchhiking, because he doesn’t like to see it.
“People have always hitchhiked, and we don’t like to see that and hopefully they’ll stop doing that,” said Hargrave.
Next he may suggest, if it wouldn’t be a bother, could they crawl into a hole and die somewhere out of sight too?
The Liberals Government has done squat in Regina since coming to power, when it comes to (hydro) power generation. I’ve produced over 5 MWh of solar power, and sent almost 3 MWh of that onto the electrical grid, while three layers of government in Regina have produced a whopping goose egg, 0 MWh.
“The Government of Canada is committed to reducing greenhouse gas emissions – which includes greening its own operations and making emissions data available to the public – in order to lower costs and leave a healthier, cleaner planet for our kids and grandkids.”
“they don’t think about what goes on in these small villages. All they can see is $ & cents & that’s it,” she said.”
It doesn’t matter if the pencil pushers are in Toronto on Bay St., or in Regina on Albert St. they just don’t get how important it is to have viable rural communities with services for farmers, teachers, children, etc.
Look at which anti-healthcare, and pro-wealthcare GOP politicians participated in preventing their inspiration from having healthcare provided by the state.
The title is in reference to a Wayne and Shuster comedy sketch.
I remember some about this story a few years ago. I don’t think the formula for the Roman mix was well understood at that time. Portland Cement doesn’t cut it. Glad they made this breakthrough, it should help build more durable structures.
The Conservative Party of Canada, in response to Omar Khadr being awarded a damages settlement for torturous conditions of his imprisonment, said, “No words,” on their Facebook post.
I’ve some words. A political party that was okay with leaving a child soldier to be tortured in an American prison, ought to have at least one word to say too, and that’s “sorry”.
What Omar K. was convicted for was wrong I think, but what the Canadian Liberal and Conservative governments did to him during his punishment, for being a child soldier, requires punishment for the government, for the people of Canada to allow an injustice to persist. This payout should give pause to Canadians who think there’s no repercussion for torturing a Canadian child who people hate.
Cicely Mcwilliam: Omar said for years that he didn’t throw the grenade and only relented to the states narrative so that he could be moved to a Canadian prison. He suffered torture and was denied a childhood both by his father and later by the US. That is why he both deserves an apology and compensation. [You’re] right a Liberal government and a Conservative government both failed to protect the rights of a Canadian child under the Convention on the Rights of the Child as well as the conventions related to child soldiers both of which Canada had championed.
I’m all for people fighting injustice. Conservatives and others see the injustice in a person who has [allegedly] killed someone getting more money from the government, than the victim’s family gets. I see that as an injustice. We shouldn’t fight the unjust amount going to a victim’s family, by denying the correction of another injustice, however.
