Posts are down…

December 15th, 2014

The reason is that my cat Deva is terminally ill. She has a large mass high up in the abdomen, and will not eat because of it. It may or may not be operable, she may or might not survive surgery, and if the surgery is a success the growth might be malignant, in which case it will likely have spread. And on top of that, she has been living on body-fat for the last four weeks or so, and is at risk of liver failure anyway.

I cannot go into debt when the chances of a happy outcome are so slim, so I will love her as much as I can until the time comes for her final trip to the vet.

And, I will write and post as and when I can…

Ontario Premier wants to dictate questions in court

December 11th, 2014

Wynne’s a lawyer now?

Re “Clothes, sexual history off limits in sex assault cases, Wynne says” (Antonella Artuso, Dec. 4): I agree that serious efforts should be made to encourage women who have been sexually assaulted to come forward, but on what legal grounds can a provincial premier presume to place limits on the options available to lawyers who are defending clients charged under the federal criminal code?

The Occidental Observer’s annual appeal for donations

December 11th, 2014

I have been an e-mail subscriber to their well thought-out and insightful commentaries for several years now. Their work is excellent, and they only appeal for funds once a year. I highly recommend them, and will be donating whatever I can.

You can visit their website here, read their appeal here, and donate here.

Black Friday – has it gone too far?

December 10th, 2014

This is a guest column; ‘Mihael Willman’ is the pseudonym for a concerned Canadian – JG.

by Mihael Willman

Black Friday, the Thursday before Black Friday, the week before Black Friday, Cyber-Monday, etc., soon it will be Black Friday month, if this trend continues. Maybe it might be better to simply create another “holiday” not “holyday” dedicated to the “God” of merchandising and manufacturing. It could be called the “Shop Till You Drop Bargain-hunting Day,” or “Look at the loot I got for next to nothing,” or any other similarly appropriate name. But definitely do not call it “Christmas” shopping. Jostling with hundreds if not thousands of people in crowded stores and malls is not what Christmas is about. And fighting over the same “drastically” reduced item has nothing in common with the season or spirit of goodwill.
