    Oh, all the news media and politicians will talk about what a glorious country this is. And, I certainly think this is the best country in the world to live in.

    But this is one hell of a terrible world. For a dose of reality, let's take a look at the career of the much-honoured William Grant Stairs of Halifax. Stairs Street in that city is named for him. Royal Military College in Kingston has a plaque honouring him. So does St. George's Cathedral in Kingston. It's all...

    The following is information about changes the users will see when the forum is updated to a more recent version, planned for May 21. Much of this is copied and pasted from xenForo's forum, along with a bit of paraphrasing.

    As we've noted at times, it's difficult for whatever reason to get a discussion going on Canadian politics. I did think that the election results in British Columbia last night were interesting. It's a minority government - the first in BC in something like 65 years. The BC Liberals won 43 seats, the BC NDP won 41 seats and the BC Greens picked up 3 seats.

    This is new and uncharted territory for the Green Party in Canada. They've never really even been close to having anything resembling...

    So Everyone can get in free this year into National Parks and historic sites. Are you planning some extra trips? Any recommendations? I am hoping to take some long weekends to explore within the Maritimes.
    I'd love to go further, but my budget won't allow it.
