Re: How's Your Hydro?

"privatization" of utilities has not proved to be cost efficient in the long term. It used to be that "utilities" was the term used for basic services provided by government (ie taxpayers) towards a...

Re: How's Your Hydro?

Apparently, and this is what Ive been told by Oakville Hydro in Ontario, the new meters systems have been upgraded to the latest technology. In previous decades, meters were never accurate and gave...

Re: How's Your Hydro?

Re: Canadian Values

With the distinction of old stock and new stock, "Canadian" and Canadian, the illustrious economist Harper and Conservatives even today, could well have uncovered a terrible truth?. That in...

Re Brits being evacuated back to the UK. I believe there are many examples of the UK taking extraordinary measures to protect UK citizens. The Falklands, Uganda, and others. To my mind, the Uganda...

Re: Canadian Values

Re: Canadian Values

The above makes sense. After all, the person is fleeing for a reason and then takes on the personal responsibility of consequences when they return to the original problem voluntarily.
But what of...
