Looks a turf war between Natural Resources and Environment over the Kyoto implementation plan has resulted in collateral damage (resignations of key people from NRCan). I wonder if this Kyoto plan will work. Probably not.
We're on a first-name basis. I fly all the time. So it just makes you wonder who the chimpanzees are who designed this list.
City of Toronto bureaucrats refused to let Natalie Glebova, this year's Miss Universe, open a festival. She could open the festival, if she didn't wear her sash and tiara and was not referred to as Miss Universe or a beauty queen. Instead, she could be referred to as "a person of note contributing to our community." Even worse, it seems that the Barenaked Ladies were prohibited from playing at a different event because of their name.
Delicious Library is great software. If you use Macs and have more books, movies, albums or games than you can count on two hands, then you should look into buying it. At only $US40.00, it's a steal.
I applied to work at the Communications Security Establishment partly to prevent this sort of thing.
Meant to link to Declan McCullagh's important article on Internet governance a few days ago. It talks about a fragmented Internet, part governed by the UN and part governed by ICANN. The UN working group McCullagh refers to is interesting. You can read about its forthcoming report.
I wonder how long France will keep its open borders partly closed? An answer to the rhetorical question quoted in the article is "more than 50 people."
John Kirton, director of the G8 Research Project at the University of Toronto in Canada, said even the moderate agreements at Gleneagles made it "a summit of historic significance".
"We have received additional tapes from the previous tapes that we had," Sergeant Gilles Deziel said. The RCMP received the first batch on June 1, he said, one day after Mr. Grewal made the recordings available on his Web site. The police force said it received the newest batch of tapes within the past two weeks.
What do these tapes reveal about the Libs? About Grewal? And, how will Harper respond to this?
