    Now now. That's not being very inclusive.
    What about Notley and Wynne. And whatever idiots are in charge in bc blocking the pipeline expansion. Need to apply your hate a little more liberally....

    Bc is trying to block it and trudeau is saying he's going to force them to do it. So we'll see I guess.

    This was an interesting read
    Could Alberta bring B.C. to its knees by shutting off the oil?
    Somewhere someone said "Vancouver wants a zero fossil fuel city by 2050...lets give it to them by 2020". I'd love to see what the environmentalists do.... just shut it off for a few days for a start..

    Robert Stanley Weir's original 1908 version of the anthem contained "thou dost in us command" instead of the commonly known "in all thy sons command". It was originally written as gender neutral. Not sure why they need to change it when we have a perfectly good version already done up by the guy who wrote the darn thing.

    EDIT: Also, there's this:

    "The writer's grandson, Steve Simpson, says the word "son" is not about gender -- but a reference to a patriotic command from a maternal goddess."

    Harper gov't says Canadian anthem lyrics won't change

    I may not have learned anything new today for trucking, but hey, there's this. One of the few things I ever agreed with the Harper government on is this topic.
