Two fuses are burning here. It would be prudent for Stephen Harper to force a federal election before either flame reaches its explosive charge.
One fuse is connected to the Conservative economic action plan, the other to Afghanistan. Both threaten to end the fine times the Prime Minister currently enjoys.
It requires a triumph of optimism over experience to expect that this or any other federal government could spend $61 billion over two years without something going horribly wrong. Spending that much this fast is certain to lead first to project waste and then to political embarrassment.
Harper will have to come clean about Canada’s continuing engagement in a country and war now going from bad to worse long before the planned 2011 date for pulling out combat troops. Afghanistan will again become a political issue and perhaps the ballot question.
Successful leaders know nothing lasts long in politics; that opportunities delayed are opportunities lost. It would be foolish and discordant with Harper’s character to wait in hope the two flames of stimulus spending and Canada’s evolving Afghanistan role never reach the gunpowder.

As Toronto Zoo members, we feel the actions of certain city councillors on the Toronto zoo’s board of management to be quite appalling. This four-member delegation junket to China at the cost of $28,000 is a complete misuse of zoo funding.
For this group to move forward with the proposed trip without the political or professional support needed amounts to nothing more than financial and political abuse of their position as members of the zoo board.
If this trip to China moves forward as it is now planned, my husband and I will be left with no other option than to reconsider renewing our zoo membership which is an unfortunate decision to have to make because the Toronto Zoo is a wonderful attraction and we enjoy it greatly.
However, we cannot support an organisation that allows its board members to make irresponsible, costly and politically detrimental decisions.

She is a very hard working person and a good Mayor.
Her son, Peter, is a burden to her since day 1. Sad to see her having this conflict of interest at the sunset of her life, ruin the glory of her whole life.
Look at our rubbish David Miller.What else would you expect from our NDP left-wing mayor. The $33 million saved during the Summer strike will disappear. They will cry poor next year but hold on to your wallets, that is if there is anything still in them.
Contract after contract CUPE has won lucrative concessions from weak bureaucrats. David Miller is totally hopeless. The sooner to go the better.
我亦會以溫總理為榜樣，有錯就認。上星期三在立法會，民主派 議 員向我展示抗議標語“BOW TIE KEEP YOUR ELECTION PROMISE”，我取笑這句子文法錯了，應該在KEEP後面加個s。事後不少人士指正我「寸」錯泛民，句子是命令式，根本不用加s；更有英文書商乘機利 用我作為反面教材在報紙上大賣廣告，標題是「曾蔭權你錯了」。事到如今，我「死撐」無用，倒不如「肥水不流別人田」，自己出版英文教科書，教導學生文法對 與錯，肯定一紙風行。面對我這個強勁對手，看教科書商還敢不敢把書價不斷抬高。
