Really MHP? Go work in other regions? That's your advice to Nova Scotia's skilled labour? Do you live in Alberta or something?
Funny you should say that, Bro Tim, because the Liberals have decided to back the bill. I guess Leslie's approach worked after all. Maybe those groups on the "fringes" aren't so kooky after all.
It's a bit of a myth that Canada wasn't involved in Iraq, as is well described in the article at http://this.org/magazine/2009/09/01/canada… which states that "a handful of Canadian military personnel have served with the U.S. and U.K. military as part of ongoing troop exchanges...it originally emerged in November 2003 that Canadian General Walt Natynczyk was going to be serving in Iraq."
The article also details how Canadian firms have profited off the American military's invasion of that country, as has also been reported in Canadian Business. Maclean's has also reported that Canadian fighter pilots have been involved in bombings, and even a few foot soldiers have been involved. Our navy also supplies ammunition used in Iraq to offshore aircraft carriers.
That's right, halifaxfella, our national anthem, the audible symbol of what we are and what we believe, should be completely upfront with all our racism, sexism, and other isms. and no matter how the world changes or our perceptions change, the national anthem should always always stay exactly the same.
By the way, the real business opportunity exists for landscapers with the business acumen to go organic. They're making a killing in Halifax, and in Quebec, where lawn pesticides have been banned for years.
The so-called enviro-crazies have used peer-reviewed independent (not industry-sponsored) data strongly linking pesticide exposure to numerous life-threatening chronic illnesses to convince a few provincial governments (and hundreds of municipal governments)to do the right thing: ban all unnecessary pesticides. The federal studies on the matter are based on industry-provided data. Fox and henhouse anyone? Bo Gus, your rant reminds me of the tobacco industry bullshit of yester-year. Old spin dies hard.
I for one would rather see those companies take their business and jobs somewhere else. Those massive subsidies could then go to local businesses, who would in turn create far more local jobs - jobs that are greener, safer, and more ethical.
How about we stop pathetically begging multinational corporations for their scraps, have some dignity and take care of ourselves in this province?

Service is fast, friendly and reliable. Food is how you would make it at home if you had the time, ingredients and top-level kitchen facilities. And personally, I love the homey, unpretentious feel of the decor. It's my favourite lunch spot in the city.
[On a side note, I think outliers like Pandamnation's ridiculous one-star rating should not be counted in the overall score.]
