Like I said yesterday, 'pushin' dirt by year end. : )

JoBs Jobs Jobs....

$$$$ to Alberta....and to Ottawa...Mr Harper...please do not spend the future. Please use the Norway model.

Alberta might also make note of the Norway model. Note Alberta Heritage fund on map / ranked....

Not Canada...Proper

Wow...Polital entities aside....Canada's wealth is being squandered by those we entrust to not  squander it.

I wonder if Chretien...Mulroney..((??Harper??))...have saving for their children...the rest of us are on our own I guess. One has to wonder why revolutions start!!!!!!

 I leave Paul Martin out as he was for a Politician, a class act. Balancing the Books and all and running surplus.
