Secret gov. study backs $50 carbon tax

A secret report to "Canada's New Government" from a "world renowned energy economist" (quote from Green Party website) has concluded that a $50 carbon tax would in fact lead to reduced greenhouse gas emissions, and have an insignificant effect on Canada's economy—contrary to what Prime Minister Harper would have you believe.

(see the Green Party press release)

While there has been no commentary yet by Harper or Environment Minister John Baird (at least to my knowledge), I am not even certain that they could start fighting the findings of this study. Thanks to this study, Canadians can now know the truth—the truth about a carbon tax; and the truth about this government.

Very soon, C.N.G. (Canada's New Government) must implement Kyoto

Do you still remember that private members' bill by Pablo Rodriguez to legally force the government to implement Kyoto? Well, it is poised to pass the Senate today, making it law for "Canada's New Government", along with succeeding governments, to meet the Kyoto targets.

Harper's government said it would not be in the interest of the country to implement Kyoto, and is willing to go to court about it (Steve sure likes going to court). So while it is a toss-up whether this bill means anything or not, it is still an achievement for Canada to have such legislation passed, and I applaud Mr. Rodriguez for drafting this bill.

But if this does go to court, it might very well bring out the less-Canada oriented side of "Canada's New Government".

Jack made no wrong at "private clinic"

You may have heard the critisizm of Jack Layton that he went to a private clinic for a hernia operation. But according to the article below, he in fact made no wrong (meaning not abandoning the public system) by doing so:

Federal NDP Leader Jack Layton has a legitimate beef with Dr. Brian Day, the new head of the Canadian Medical Association.
Day is calling Layton a hypocrite for having a hernia repaired at a private clinic while denouncing private health care in the political arena.
He is referring to the Shouldice Clinic, a specialty operation north of Toronto where doctors perform nothing but hernia repairs.
Day is right insofar as the clinic is privately owned, but Jack didn't pay much out of his own pocket. The Shouldice has been in operation since 1945 and was grandfathered into the national health plan when medicare was introduced.
Thus, Ontario patients have the procedure paid for by their provincial health-care plans. Other provinces reimburse patients at a level equivalent to…

Commons Environment committee crashes

Yesterday, another House of Commons committee crashed thanks to, yet again, the Conservative chairperson.

This marks the second time a House of Commons committee has been shut down since the leak of the handbook for Conservative chairs to shut down committees. This 200-page handbook also outlines how to control witnesses for the benefit of the Conservatives. (Yet another undemocratic habit of the Conservatives.)

It is completely unacceptable for the government to be orchestrating a Commons committee's 'malfunction', especially when it has such important work to do (for the environment), which includes hearing witnesses.

Well, in the next election, the Conservatives are going to have a lot of explaining to do to sort this all out to the public (especially MP Bob Mills, who was the chairperson who literally walked out from the committee). As was shown in a recent Decima poll, the Conservatives are lagging behind the Liberals; their support is slipping.

LG U970 (Shine) – Growing popularity of fashion phones

With the growing popularity of fashion phones, the manufacturers have taken a penchant for glossy and shiny surface of handsets. And when it comes to glean and glisten, no handset does a job better than LG Shine. Truly sleek and sophisticated, LG Shine is a real time head turning gadget.

The phone comes wrapped in stainless steel casing. This encompasses the LG shine with a nice gleam, and makes it quite alluring as well. Yes, it becomes a bit hefty but the robust feel makes it unlike the cheap plastic phones, whose durability is raises eyebrows at times. The front fascia of the handset is dominated by a large screen. And the screen is the show stealer here. The screen is so reflective that it feels like one is holding a mirror in the hand. Sure, it is a gift for ladies who are conscious of their looks, but the glossy screen does pose a little problem when it comes to durability. The screen of LG Shine is so prone to finger prints.

Flicking up LG Shine reveals a flat keypad. The keypad …

Medicare Part 4: We can afford a better system

For the last part in my medicare series, I want to focus on how we need to make our current system work. The reason that we are having so many problems with wait-lists, hospitals closing down and doctors moving to more urban centres is because we are not properly funding the system. Essentially, we are starving our hero and wondering why he doesn't make as much of a difference as he should. Without an adequately funded health system, it is obvious that it won't work to the degree that we'd like it to.

1. We can spend more on health
Many anti-medicare groups say that Canada can't afford to spend more on our medicare system, or else we'll have serious financial troubles. What they don't see, however, is that a private system would in fact cost more; the only difference is that it will cost Canadians more and the government a lot less. No matter if we have a public, private or a two-tiered system, it will still cost people money, if not by taxes, then it will cos…

Why can't Sask. MPs do the same?

As we all know by now, Bill Casey, a Nova Scotia MP (who at the time of the vote was a Conservative MP), defied his government by voting against its 2007 budget. By doing so, he was kicked out of the Conservative caucus.

Here in Saskatchewan, there has been a lot of talk about why the Saskatchewan Conservative MPs also didn't dare to vote against the budget, seeing that many—if not most people (including some members of the media)—people here are upset that Stephen Harper broke his promise to Saskatchewan. While people (particularly the provincial NDP government) have been talking about that for quite some time, this debate has very recently got to be more interesting: If a Nova Scotia Conservative MP can put his province first, why can't a Saskatchewan Conservative MP do the same?

Saskatchewan Conservative MPs have clearly shown a lack of leadership; MPs are supposed to put their constituents before their party, just as Mr. Casey did for Nova Scotia (and it did pay off for him;…

LG KG800: Soaring temptation.

The advent of designer phones has given a whole new meaning to mobile phones. Now, you do not need to carry those brick-shaped heavy mobile phones, when you get other cool options with designer handsets. All the leading handsets manufactures have been offering various designer handsets, but a very few of these handsets really stand out of the clutter. The LG Chocolate phones are the true example of mobile art with loads to offer. The LG Chocolate phones are not all about designing, but they do offer a lot in substantial features.

Blending all the right elements in the right way, the LG KG 800 Chocolate phone brings a sheer delight for mobile phone users. This phone is endowed with a touch-sensitive navigation system. This elegant piece of mobile art is available in black and white colours – perfect combination to create that desired impact. On the other hand, the LG KG800 comes with a sleek black design, which looks quite enticing with its hidden key pad. With all such things, it seems…

LG U890 – A powerful communication device

Resembling the LG U880, the LG U890 improves upon its predecessor by having a stylish keypad and a glossy display screen. Also, the handset comes in a lighter version, as compared to the earlier video phones. The total weight of LG U890 is 99 grams.

In terms of design, the Lg U890 comes with a flip mechanism. The flip is sturdy to operate, meaning that the handset is durable and will not break when being operated by tough hands. The blue and silver colour scheme is attractive and endows the phone with a distinct appeal. Flipped open, the Lg U890 reveals an attractive keypad, which looks a lot like Motorola RAZR V3. The keys are very flat and have a brushed aluminum finish.

The external screen displays most of the necessary information. It includes shows time, date, battery life and reception. Beneath the screen is three dedicated media buttons. These are quite helpful for the ones who would want to make full fledged use of Mp3 functionalities.

The LG U840' s display is clear and e…

Increase Font Size On Nokia E50

You’ll need a memory card and a file manager (e.g. Y-Browser or ActiveFile).

1. Open your file manager and navigate to Z:\resource\Fonts

2. Check the names of the files (these are the fonts that are actually used); they have extension .ttf and most likely they are nosnr60.ttf, nssb60.ttf, nstsb60.ttf and S60ZDIGI.ttf; write them down, you’ll need them later

3. On your memory card create a folder called resource and inside it a folder called Fonts

4. Copy the new fonts to the Fonts folder on your memory card (there are numerous fonts available on the internet for free; try a few of them, experiment and see which fits the best)

5. Rename them in the following order: – nosnr60.ttf regular (normal) font – nssb60.ttf bold font – nstsb60.ttf font for titles

Note: if your font files have different names rename them accordingly. Font names on your memory card must match those on phone memory in Z:\resource\Fonts.

6. Reboot the phone

If you want to switch back to the default font simply erase the whol…

Medicare Part 3: Extending the system to cover health

Going back to the medicare series, I will be talking about two crucial elements for the next generation of strong medicare: home-care and pharmacare. The reason we needs these two more elements is simple: health doesn't just include a trip to the doctor or hospital. Health means taking medication to get better, and having medical and domestic help while resting at your own home.

1. Pharmacare
While "Canada's New Government" has been trying to pretend that the concept doesn't exist, the NDP has lately been raising the issue of a national drug plan (which Manitoba already has a version of) so everyone has access to the proper medication.

Obviously, Canada has had our "medicare" system for quite some time, and we've been proud of it. We have been saying that everyone has access to the proper treatment, and thus we are all a bunch of health Canadians. However, while our system does provide access to see a doctor, or even get surgery, etc., our system s…
