"It was so bad that these Atco trailers that are situated on huge I-frames and three-foot diameter wheels were actually rocking in the wind," said Major Gibson. "It was just unbelievable."
Plans to visit five nearby islands were downgraded to two. The crash exercise was delayed when reporters hoping to observe it had to remain in Resolute, then cancelled entirely when the Rangers ran out of time."
"Several soldiers in the Royal Highland Fusiliers have complained that they were subjected to unprovoked attacks, known as 'bleaching', by colleagues as they slept.
"Several members of the regiment have reported that they were regularly bullied and harassed by non-commissioned officers under the influence of drink and drugs."
The non-violence edict of the current antiwar/anti-Bush movement is a joke. In a time of war the State will use all means to suppress opposition. Lincoln did it during the Civil War, Wilson did it during World War II, Roosevelt did it during World War II, etc. Antiwar/anti-Bush demonstrations are usually surrounded by riot cops and then attacked, without provocation, with chemical agents and batons.
Violence, in most cases, does create more violence, as seen in Bush's many crusades. Yet, when the violence is against the oppressive agents of the State, the violence is necessary.

"If government is to play a positive role in society, as it must, honesty and integrity in our political institutions must be restored."
--from "Governing with Integrity", Chapter 6 of the federal Liberal Party's 1993 election platform
The federal Liberals have failed in 11 years of governing to clean-up the system, despite promising to "govern with integrity" and to slay Canada's "democratic deficit." But so has every other government of every political stripe right back to Confederation. When all is said and done, much more has been said than done.
"The music video is one hundred percent Canadian content,
produced professionally by working industry professionals,

Closed Captioning. "We've met their broadcast requirements,"

the song that they deem 'unfit for broadcast' and that 'does
not fit their format.' "

"The history and current actions of the United States show a distain for true conflict of moral principles and a love of enlightened self-interest. The evidence citied for the invasion of Iraq mirrored U.S. actions of the past and present, U.S. hypocrisy in dealing with Syria, and the U.S.'s deafening silence about war and genocide in Africa prove that the largely popular perception that a moral code has been injected into the foreign policy of the United States is false."
PETA? Terrorists? Well, folks, here we have is grade-A Texas nutjobs. I'm not the biggest fan of PETA (their tactics could use some work), but getting called terrorists for wanting to have an ethically sound food market is pretty out there.

Think big. Think money. Think drugs. And then think of all the sly, silly, ethically impaired things that people will do to sell drugs, and you'll have a taste of Kathleen Slattery-Moschkau's film, Side Effects.
Slattery-Moschkau (pronounced Moscow, "like the city") sold drugs for a living for Bristol-Myers Squibb and Johnson & Johnson, until she found it increasingly difficult to "look myself in the mirror," and left her job after 10 years in the industry.

"TORONTO - The United States, Britain, the Netherlands and Canada rely on 'flimsy' diplomacy in attempts to send foreign terror suspects back to countries that routinely use torture against their prisoners, Human Rights Watch said in a report released Friday.
The 91-page report by the New York-based group said there was a growing practice among Western nations to seek reassurances of humane treatment of terror suspects while attempting to boot them back to countries with 'well-established' records of torture, such as Egypt, Syria, Uzbekistan or Yemen."
