it's just a shame the PM put so much emphasis on this, as if it was his legacy. Now it's gone, nobody really noticed

"We consider it inappropriate to impose findings to a committee before it has conducted its study. We respect the parliamentary process," DeBellefeuille said in French."


so in my opinion a bit of posturing on the part of Mr Singh, politicians can be such children at times

Yours is an opinion a lot of us will agree with.

The feigned emotions are indicative of his using anything and everything he can in reaching for support for something he states would be a game changer while actually being nothing of substance at all.

His statement "we can do something right now to fix this" belies the fact "fixing this" is going to take far more than a simple redundant motion in Parliament. He should be smart enough to know this and to assume Canadians are also smart enough to know this.

I guess he's not.

“Long-lost beverage resurrected after 120 years - Odd ads for Dr Cronk’s Compound Sarsaparilla Beer, once wildly popular, went viral on Twitter. Now a Canadian (Calgary) brewer is bringing it back”

https://www.theguardian.com/world/20...canada-brewery

Quote:
The first known mention of the drink was in an 1840 advert from Syracuse, New York, which credits its invention to one Warren Cronk, 25.
Quote:
The recipe calls for sassafras, sarsaparilla, hops, chamomile, cinnamon, ginger, green tea and molasses, said Belding. “I think it’s going to taste like a spicy root beer. I’ve never really used molasses and there’s a lot of ginger in there, so it’ll kick.”

The first 800-litre (211-gallon) batch should be ready in two weeks – just as well, because Belding has been inundated with orders, including requests from the UK and US.

Well, "it's in his DNA" may not be the best qualifier, nor his stated mission to re-infuse Canadians with a sense of appreciation for the U.N. but:

There's certainly no doubting his ability to walk the tightrope Canada's now going to need while still a member of that increasingly irrelevant organization.

Default New comet in the skies - photos

Early this morning some photographers in BC got some great photos and videos of this new comet as it leisurely passed over southern BC in its approach towards earth. The first two photos shown in the article were taken as Comet NEOWISE was seen passing over Abbotsford. Apparently it will only be visible for a few more days but the closer it gets to earth the less bright it will be. They were lucky they got these photos this early morning because shortly after it passed over BC the skies clouded up:

Photographers snag gorgeous photos of rare comet over B.C.

Interesting tidbit about Kamala Harris (born in 1964):
When she was 12, Harris and her sister moved with their mother to Montreal, Canada, where their mother had accepted a research position at Jewish General Hospital and teaching at McGill University. She was a popular student at Westmount High School in Westmount, Quebec, graduating in 1981.
