    Susanne LautenI've heard some people argue that you are a hypocrite if you use gasoline or oil and say you are against building new pipelines. Let me explain the logical fallacy by taking you back 100 years. Then, most people used horse and carriage to get around. Only a few people had "motorcars", but they would explode in popularity in the next few years. If someone in a large city in 1915 said what was needed was a huge, new stable for horses, with hindsight we realize now that a huge stable would have been a white elephant within a few years and a big waste of money. The argument in 1915 that if you use a horse, you are a hypocrite if you don't back the building of a huge new stable, was simply not true as it turned out. In fact those against building a huge new stable would prove to be visionaries, not hypocrites, even if they still used horses in 1915. Exactly the same is true about pipelines now. The evidence is piling up that we are at the beginning of the end of the fossil fuel era. Rather than a hypocrite, if you are against the building of new pipelines now, whether or not you still burn oil for the time being, you will be on the side of history.

We can build a prosperous economy and a society that shares its benefits more fairly. We can look after our seniors. We can offer better futures for our children. We can do our part to save the world’s environment. We can restore our good name in the world. We can do all of these things." - Jack Layton

    Kimberley LoveUnbelievable. Was up to Kemble for the first tapping ceremony today... and the tree was actually giving us some sap. Still much too cold for real syrup making, but the sun was doing its best to help us along. We're ordering up our equipment and supplies for syrup season... and starting to watch the weather forecasts for two weeks out. Waiting now for maple moon...

    Kimberley LoveShout-out to the city workers who have been going all-out to try to restore water to homeowners in Owen Sound: by thawing pipes where they can, and doing MacGyver work-arounds where they can't. Regrettably, we are still without water at our house, and our MacGyver fix (a hose running continuously from a neighbouring property) didn't work out. Thanks to those who are trying to help though: friends offering us a place to shower, neighbours working together to try to create a fix, businesses and organizations stepping up to offer services... It's nice to live in a community with a network of support when things go pear-shaped. We were surprised when we found ourselves without water: we weren't on the map showing the "danger zones" for freeze-ups. But I urge residents to watch the city web site closely and follow instructions as we all try to get through this long deep freeze. In the meantime, thank a city worker. They're doing their best out there.

    Marc Spooner"Meanwhile, University of Regina researchers in certain faculties are having their faculty travel funding - minimal money used to defray the costs associated with presenting and disseminating top-notch research at peer-reviewed conferences - curtailed or cancelled. This is happening even though peer-reviewed conferences represent the highest calibre and most innovative research currently taking place in our respective fields of study and our participation in such scholarly gatherings enhances the university's reputation, our potential for international collaborations, and improves and shapes our current and future scholarly work." http://www.leaderpost.com/opinion/letters/loses+focus/10851344/story.html

    Marc LaferriereHad the honour of doing a full 30 minute episode of Advocate Television with Brantford Native Housing's Sherry Lewis today. What a remarkable person and a great discussion. Her comments about Missing & Murdered Indigenous Women (#MMIW) are especially important to hear. I will share digitally after it airs in our market. Thank you Sherry!

    Max KhanBUILDING A CHURCH! I have been involved in helping St. Luke Anglican Church's development project. Last Sunday, I was able to attend their Church and present them with the long awaited construction permits. People attending the service were so thrilled. They actually had tears of joy. I am so proud that we are moving this project forward. I would like the thank the Church for their prayers.

    Denis ParadisLe chef du Parti libéral du Canada, Justin Trudeau, partage sa vision de l’économie pour le Canada MONTRÉAL – Aujourd’hui, le chef du Parti libéral du Canada, Justin Trudeau, a présenté sa vision de l’économie – centrée sur le renforcement de la classe moyenne de notre pays – dans une allocution qu’il a prononcée devant plus de 800 membres de la communauté d’affaires de Montréal. « Alors que la priorité de M. Harper est d’accorder un allègement fiscal de 2 milliards de dollars aux mieux nantis de notre société, les libéraux s’engagent à investir au profit des Canadiennes et des Canadiens de la classe moyenne qui n’ont pas bénéficié d’une augmentation de revenu décente depuis 30 ans, a déclaré M. Trudeau. Le Canada a besoin d’un leadership avec un plan économique intelligent qui inclut toutes les régions, tous les secteurs d’activité et les entreprises de toutes tailles, et qui met concrètement l’accent sur les compétences et l’éducation de notre population ainsi que sur les recherches que nous effectuons. » M. Trudeau a défini certaines priorités clés d’un futur gouvernement libéral qui incluraient notamment un soutien aux infrastructures, à l’éducation postsecondaire, à la science et à l’innovation, ainsi qu’à l’entrepreneuriat. Il a également annoncé qu’un futur gouvernement libéral rétablirait le crédit d’impôt relatif à une société à capital de risque de travailleurs (SCRT) que les conservateurs de M. Harper ont décidé d’éliminer progressivement. Ce crédit d’impôt aide les travailleuses et travailleurs canadiens – dont plus de 650 000 Québécois – à économiser en vue de leur retraite, tout en permettant aux fonds de travailleurs de faire d’importants investissements dans de petites et moyennes entreprises, ainsi que dans des projets infrastructurels. « Les Canadiens méritent un gouvernement qui aidera leurs communautés et leurs entreprises à innover et à investir pour la prospérité au 21e siècle, a affirmé M. Trudeau. C’est uniquement en prenant conscience de cela et en agissant en conséquence que nous pouvons faire en sorte que tous les Canadiens aient une chance réelle et équitable de réussir. »

    Marc LaferriereReally impressed with how new NDP candidate David McLaren in Bruce-Grey-Owen discussed some of the challenges of our economy: McLaren said the Canadian economy is showing signs of major cracks with a huge gap between the wealthy and the rest of the population, high debt loads among the middle class, a falling dollar and a struggling manufacturing sector, all of which are being felt here. "Good paying pensionable jobs have been replaced by part-time precarious work and we are seeing the symptoms of it is Grey-Bruce-Owen Sound," said McLaren. "Housing starts are way off, the economy is not doing well, lots of folks are falling below the poverty level, food banks are being used, the United Way is running out of money for people who need help on their heating bills." McLaren said the Liberals and Conservatives are not very far apart on many major policy issues, especially around foreign affairs and the economy. McLaren credited former Liberal governments of starting major corporate tax cuts and "balancing budgets on the backs of workers" by readjusting the employment insurance program. "Now we are left with a population that is seriously unequal in terms of income distribution," said McLaren. "That inequality is having a drag on our own economy and it is causing real problems with families and communities and with nations and I don't see either the Liberals or the Conservatives having any policies that will fix that."
