Coming in May
Where serious riders buy their tack
In the Midtown Mall • (780) 778-1951
By Gwynne Dyer
You can imagine lots of countries
where a candidate for the presidency
might lie about owning a gun so as not to
alienate the voters, but only in the United
States would he lie and say he does
own a gun when he doesn’t. That was
Republican presidential candidate Mitt
Romney’s sin earlier this year -- and he
compounded it by claiming that he was
a lifelong hunter. Diligent reporters checked and found that
Romney had never taken out a hunting license anywhere.
(Where were they when President Bush claimed that Saddam
Hussein had “weapons of mass destruction”?)
The notion that the voters might punish a candidate for
not owning a gun would seem simply bizarre in most jurisdictions,
but it is a serious political reality in the United States.
That’s why hardly anybody in the US is using the latest mass
slaughter by some enraged loser (33 dead at Virginia Tech)
to argue for more gun control. There’s not even pressure to
renew the federal law banning the sale of assault rifles, which
was recently allowed to lapse.
Gun control is a dead issue in the United States, and it
isn’t coming back. There is a sound political reason for this,
and there is also a rational explanation for it (which isn’t the
The political reason was simplicity itself: the Democratic
Party realised that it wasn’t going to win back a majority in
either house of Congress if it didn’t stop talking about gun
control. The party’s leaders looked at the political map after
the 2004 election, a sea of Republican red with a narrow strip
of Democratic blue on either coast, and realised that their
problem was more than just George W. Bush’s fatal charm.
They weren’t winning in “heartland” states because they were
seen as trying to take Americans’ guns away.

There are other issues even in Montana, of course, but
enough people care passionately about their guns in Montana
that it’s hard to get elected there if you are seen as anti-gun.
So now the Democratic Party’s national platform commits it
to uphold the Second Amendment -- the right to keep and
bear arms -- and in the 2006 election it won both the Senate
seat that was being contested in Montana and the governorship
of the state, for decades a Republican stronghold.
The campaign manifesto of the new Democratic senator
from Montana, Jon Tester, claimed that he would “stand up to
anyone -- Republican or Democratic -- who tries to take away

identified as Neighbourhood Commercial in the Municipal
Development Plan and the Area Structure Plan, and Direct
Control in the Land Use Bylaw. After receiving a number
of concerns from area residents regarding the possible construction
of a commercial development, Town Council has
decided to eliminate the neighbourhood commercial use for
the site and initiated the process to re-designate the property
as medium density R-3.
This designation will allow for the development of
duplexes, tri-plexes, four-plexes or town housing. Town

As we know, right wing
and left wing are the words
used to describe political
parties and policies in the
mainstream press. These
two concepts are presented
as the endpoints of a spectrum,
with ‘centrists’ or
‘moderates’ being those
whose views fit somewhere
in the middle. The terms
originated from the French
Revolution, when liberal
deputies sat to the left of
the president’s chair and
members of the nobility
sat to the right. Over time,
the left wing has come to
be identified with those
who favour big government,
and secularism. Right wing is
held to encompass small govthat
false impressions about
political matters abound. For
example, small government
and fascism are both described
as being ‘right wing’, even
though fascism entails big
government. On the other
hand, state communism is
considered to be left wing,
even though many of its
policies are fascistic in nature.
Since the ‘right wing’
is considered to uphold the
old order, stalwart communists
referred to as ‘right wing’
by the mainstream press
when they resisted the fall
of communism in Russia.
In the very next story, one
know is that the supposed left might read how a communist
is promoting ‘left wing’

A Senior Moment
A very self-important college freshman from Ottawa
University took it upon himself to explain to a senior citizen
standing next to him while waiting for a bus, that it was
impossible for the older generation to understand his generation.
“You grew up in a different world, actually an almost
primitive one,” the student said, loud enough for the other
passengers nearby to hear. “The young people of today grew
up with television, jet planes, space travel, man walking on the
moon, our spaceships have visited Mars. We have nuclear energy,
electric and hydrogen cars, computers with light-speed
processing and.............” Pausing for breath ..................
The Senior took advantage of the break in the student’s
litany and said: “You’re right, son. We didn’t have those
things when we were young........so we invented them. Now,
other than destroying the environment, increasing the crime
rate and creating a permanent homeless population, what are
you going to do for the next generation?”

GNA - Westport, CT, USA, - To commemorate World
Water Day and to improve children’s access to clean drinking
water worldwide, PlayPumps International, together with
Save the Children, is launching a campaign to bring clean
water to 100 schools and communities in Africa.
Supported by tennis star Nicole Vaidisova, the 100 Pumps
in 100 Days campaign aims to raise $1.4 million to fund Play-
Pump water systems — an innovative pump powered by a
merry-go-round. The campaign, which will begin on March
22 and end on June 29, will engage students, clubs, faithbased
organizations, and others in raising money and awareness.
The campaign’s Action Kit contains 100 ideas for fundraising
PlayPumps International, which raises money to donate
PlayPump water systems to schools and communities
in sub-Saharan Africa, is known for its collaborative
approach. PlayPumps International has enjoyed the support
of foundations, corporations, governments and celebrities,
including music artist Jay-Z, whose MTV documentary
“Diary of Jay-Z: Water for Life” raised awareness of
the water crisis.
A PlayPump water system is a child’s merry-go-round
attached to a water pump and storage tank that provides
clean drinking water and powerful educational messages to

Montanans’ gun rights.” The new Democratic governor of
Montana, Brian Schweizer, says that he has “more guns than
I need but not as many as I want....I guess I kind of believe
in gun control: you control your gun, and I’ll control mine.”
It’s a whole new image for Democrats, and it won
them control of both houses of Congress in 2006.
(Yes, the war helped, too, but by itself it wouldn’t
have been enough.)
The Democrats were not going to lose the
coastal states (where the effete intellectuals and
most of the old urban working class live) even if
they did drop gun control. They were not going
to win in the heartland (where the born-agains
and the Marlboro Men live) if they didn’t drop
gun control. So they dropped it, and now no large
party supports it. That’s the politics of it, and you
can’t argue with that.
There is another, quite rational reason why
gun control doesn’t get much traction in American
politics any more. It’s simply too late. This is a society
that owns approximately equal numbers of wrist-watches
and guns: around a quarter-billion of each. There’s no going
back -- and if practically everybody else has guns, maybe
you should have one, too.

As various commentators will be pointing out soon,

way the argument is usually put in America, although
the reality is not one gun per citizen over
the age of twelve, but some citizens with a great
many guns and most citizens with none at all.
More fundamentally, the gun control argument
may be missing the cultural point. Most
Swiss and Israeli households with a male between
the ages of 18 and 45 also contain a fully
automatic weapon, because the national military
mobilisation model in those countries requires
reservists to keep their weapons at home. Yet the
Swiss and Israelis don’t murder one another at
a higher rate than people in countries like Britain
or Turkey, where there is relatively strict gun
“Guns don’t kill people; people kill people” is the bestknown

effective pro-gun lobbying organisation in the United States.

also part of the store building.
It also caught fire and
burned down. Lenny Gould’s

lost including the Restaurant
Building. However, Mr.
Gould, being an entrepreneur,
said “Well, at least we

Lenny Gould was one.
Many people were in

grass to Greencourt Community
Hall. It got under the
hall so men were fighting fire
inside and outside the hall.
They had to chop holes in the
hall floor to put out the fire.
Men worked all night to save
the hall. This hall still stands
today, sixty five years later.
In 1941 many people
charged their groceries and
only paid when they could.
No doubt both stores had
money on the books. One
wonders if they received all
their pay. Theresa Starman
remembers people throwing
water on the side of Johnny
Starman’s Garage. They
climbed a ladder and threw
pails of water on the garage

not burn. Water had to be
pumped by hand from a well
and carried to the fire. Gas
for vehicles was sold here.

As a small child, I remember playing in the dirt in my
mother’s greenhouse, unaware that there were billions of
live organisms in a teaspoon of soil. I was born into a family
of botanists and horticulturists, who were in the business
of growing beauty for over 50 years. I remember wondering
why the insects I observed always knew what they should be
doing, and why people weren’t nearly as organized, running
around the planet like ants without a colony.
I also was amazed at the fact that they could teach me
much, if only I looked. It seemed to me that the close relationship
between the insect and plant world held some kind of secret,
and if I tried just a little longer, I could figure it out. I’m
still watching and learning something new every day from
this small treasure of life we call home. Thus the fascination
of the gardener, who needs to weed just a bit more, or create
a new garden, even in the fading light.
A gardener is sometimes referred to as a biophile. Biophilia
is the unexplainable feeling you get when you have
created the perfect back yard, or smell the first lilacs of the
year. It’s why we spend hours and hours in the garden, until
all is just right.

All mobile animal species, those that are able to select
their immediate environment, have a powerful and sophisticated
inborn guide for habitat selection. It’s an important
part of their survival instinct. It is amazing how complex and
precise the system is, even in an insect with a brain the size
of a grain of salt. So why not, at least a tiny bit, in humans?
We are consciously selecting and shaping our habitat to our
liking, hopefully with respect for all life.
As we are deep into our 28th year of growing plants, we
are proud to be a leader in some of the most earth-friendly
growing methods in Canada. We were the first garden centre\greenhouse
grower to introduce ELLE pots to the retail
gardener in Canada. Now we are telling other growers how
great they are. They have been used for a number of years in
Europe, and have been in the US landscape trades as well.
ELLE pots use a biodegradable fibre that is wrapped
around the soil mix. There is absolutely no plastic, and the
wrapper uses no peat moss resource. The plants love the air at
the root system, are healthier, and easier to plant. Gardeners
who have used them are 100% satisfied, and can’t believe the

1.) A king size waterbed holds enough water to fill a
2000 sq. ft. house 4 inches deep.
2.) If you spray hair spray on dust bunnies and run
over them with Roller blades, they can ignite.
3.) A 3-year old’s voice is louder than 200 adults in a
4.) If you hook a dog leash over a ceiling fan, the
motor is not strong enough to rotate a 42 pound boy
wearing Batman underwear and a Superman cape. It is
strong enough, however, if tied to a paint can, to spread
paint on all four walls of a 20x20 ft. room.
5.) You should not throw baseballs up when the ceiling
fan is on. When using a ceiling fan as a bat, you have
to throw the ball up a few times before you get a hit. A
ceiling fan can hit a baseball a long way.
6.) The glass in windows (even double-pane) doesn’t
stop a baseball hit by a ceiling fan.
7.) When you hear the toilet flush and the words “uh
oh,” it’s already too late.
8.) Brake fluid mixed with Clorox makes smoke, and
lots of it.
9.) A six-year old can start a fire with a flint rock,
even though a 36-year old man says they can only do it
in the movies.
10.) Certain Lego’s will pass through the digestive
tract of a 4-year old.
11.) Play dough and microwave should not be used
in the same sentence.
12.) Super glue is forever.
13.) No matter how much Jell-O you put in a swimming
pool you still can’t walk on water.
14.) Pool filters do not like Jell-O.
15.) VCR’s do not eject PB&J sandwiches even
though TV commercials show they do.
16.) Garbage bags do not make good parachutes.
17.) Marbles in gas tanks make lots of noise when

plastic toys do not like ovens.
19.) The spin cycle on the washing machine does not

The engineering analyses
of the IGA building are
ongoing, while repairs are
underway. New equipment
has been ordered to replace
that which was damaged in
the collapse of the roof.
In April, the Town adopted
an Area Structure Plan
for 160 acres of municipally
owned land on the east edge
of existing residential development
by Mink Creek Road
in the valley.
The Town is extending
the arterial road through the
area, and is seeking proposals
for the development of neighborhoods.
The intention is to
sell parcels of raw land to developers,
with developers to
design, service, and sell lots.
Opportunities for low
density, medium density,
high density, neighborhood
commercial, and institutional
sites will be available. Mink
Creek Road will be extended
100m into the development.
Noon May 18 is the deadline
to submit the paperwork
required for the first step in
the development process.

causes. ‘Right wing’ Nazis,
rather than uphold the traditional
order, overthrew it in
a revolution. In essence, the
logic of the ‘right wing/left
wing’ terminology can be
summed up by stating left is
right and right is left; or up is
down and down is up.
Needless to say, such
mass media polemics are
hardly a prescription to advance
among the voters. One is better
off to think of ‘left wing’
and ‘right wing’ as the ‘left
arm’ and ‘right arm’ of the
same behind the scenes controllers;
keeping in mind such
controllers are often slaves to
circumstance and the power
struggles that go on within
their own ranks.
However, much like a
border collie will run from
left to right and back again
to herd sheep into a corral,
the mainstream media pronouncements
on ‘left wing’
and ‘right wing’
choices are really
designed to push

“we must pretend

is useful and fair is not. Avarice

longer still.” In the words of a
song by a Canadian band, ‘try
honesty’ might be a good way
forward to some degree.
If one truly believes in
democracy, then one truly believes
an informed citizenry.
The process of teaching a
basic understanding of a real
political framework should
begin in grade school. Then
the media should present policies,
not political parties, in
the context of such a framework.
Free votes in the House
of Commons should be encouraged.
The overall goal
would be moving beyond the
‘left is right, up is down’ description,
to one that aligns
with common sense and constituents’
wishes. In this way,
citizens can have much better

aspect also relates to
anarchy and all points in between
on the totalitarian/anarchy
The proposal here is that
political policies should be
considered according to five
factors, rather than the one
scale of right wing/left wing.
The first axis, or x axis, in a
meaningful political framework
would have totalitarianism
and anarchy as the
endpoints. For the neophyte,
comes from concept
the same thing
according to a
a situation in which there are
no laws and everyone more or
less does whatever they want.
Although both endpoints of
this spectrum sound as if they
should never be a part of society
this is not always the case,
as will be seen.
The second axis, or y
axis, would have endpoints of
centralization to decentralization.
At what level of governance
should policy be made?
Possibilities include the individual,
country, trading bloc or globe.
Futurist Alvin Toffler referred
to this concept as decision
division. There is a tendency
to confuse the centralization/
decentralization idea with
the concepts of totalitarianism
and anarchy. However,
it should be remembered that
one can have totalitarianism
to this concept as
The third axis, or z axis,
for plot points is the specific
policy being considered. For
example, totalitarianism is
just fine when considering
which side of the road people
should drive on. Everyone, of
course, should do the same
thing here. On the centralization/decentralization
place at the national

regards to what
one does in one’s

be made at the level of the

at the level of the individual,

To recap, at this point
we have an ‘x’ axis that goes
from totalitarianism to anarchy,
a ‘y’ axis that goes from
centralization to decentralization
and a ‘z’ axis that entails
the specific policy being considered.
Using this political
structure, one can plot what
is likely to be the best point
at which to start exploring for
solutions to problems. Ozone
layer thinning (z axis) would
be something to approach at
the global level (y axis), with
a totalitarian (x axis) ban on
gases proven dangerous to the
layer being an ultimate goal.
One thing to keep in mind is
Thomas Jefferson’s dictum
that it is ‘error alone that
needs government’. Government
mucking about in such
things as social engineering,
while ignoring the effects of

most utile way forward is not
always the best path in the
long run. It is amazing at how
often solutions that put expediency
above morality have
led to only temporary relief
from a problem, before causing
another round of problems
that are often more serious
than the original issue.

the move today
is to attempt to
force feed certain
concepts to the
population at large, ostensibly
for their own good, by taking
away decision making that
rightly belongs to the individuals,
and the provinces. Additionally,
the attack on religions
to some degree may be a subconscious
urge to replace information
that comes from a
higher source of intelligence
with the dictates of power
hungry humans, who want to
unnecessarily control others.
As usually happens in
such cases, the force feeding
retards some important facets
of social development. Moral
information coming from a
higher source is distorted and
blocked by clumsy super-elite
attempts to take on the role of
a higher power. For example,
the artificial scarcity created
by our debt money/compound
interest system is virtually
guaranteed to result in actual
social reverses, even while
technology makes more possible.
This is not pie-in-thesky
conspiracy musings, but
a breakdown of the essential
math of how money is created
and destroyed, confirmed
by experts such as ex-central
banker Bernard Lietaer. It is
not surprising that religions
such as Christianity, Islam
and Judaism once had a strict
ban on any form of interest;
never mind the form of usury
that takes place when money
is created from nothing by private
institutes with compound
interest charges attached.
A primary reason that the
citizenry as a whole is lied
to about our money system
is that it is believed they are
not sufficiently advanced to
make intelligent decisions
necessary for the future of
the planet. It is the view here
that this is a self-fulfilling
prophecy, in that the more the

OTTAWA – On April
18th Prime Minister Stephen
Harper announced that our
intends to appoint Alberta
Brown to replace retiring
Alberta Liberal Senator Dan
Hays. This action reaffirms
our government’s commitment
to the principles of an
elected Senate. Albertans
should determine who they
want to represent them in the
On two separate occasions,
Albertans voted to
have Bert Brown represent
them in the Senate. But, the
previous government repeatedly
ignored their wishes.
During their thirteen years
in power, no elected person
was appointed to the Senate.
Instead of open and transparent
elections to fill vacancies,
the former government
thought that the Senate
should be reserved for Liberal
Party faithful who would
be obligated to follow party
directives. Our Conservative
Government does not share
this view. We are committed
to the fundamental principle
of democracy that Canadians
should elect the people
that represent them in both
the House of Commons and
The Senate Appointment
Consultations Act, Bill C-
43, is the proposed law that
would enable Canadians to
vote for Senators. The Bill
outlines a fair and transparent
process for filling future
Senate vacancies with elected
Senators. Because we are in a
minority government, it is up
to the opposition to do what
is right, and join us in supporting
Bill C-43. Canadians
demand an elected, equal,
and effective Senate. This bill
moves that agenda forward.
At the announcement
Prime Minister Harper said
the following about Senatorin-waiting
Bert Brown. “No
Canadian has done as much
to advance the cause of Senate
reform as Bert Brown. He
has been a tireless advocate
for democratization of the
Upper House for over two
decades. He ran in three Alberta
Senate elections and is
the only Canadian to be elected
twice as a Senator-in-waiting.
In short, he is a perfect
role model for elected Senators,
and today’s announcement
demonstrates that our
Government is serious about
moving forward on Senate

Blind alleys and driveways
Parked trucks along a curb can often block the view of a
car pulling out onto the road from an alley or parking lot; or
can hide a car travelling on the road from a vehicle entering
the roadway. Driving defensively should at least lower the
odds of being blindsided in such a situation.
Sometimes it helps to look further down the road past
the parked truck that is blocking your view, and then wait
an interval so that any vehicles previously in the blind spot
would have gone by. Meanwhile you can observe any vehicles
that are entering the blind spot.

education and media systems
short change and misinform
people, the less they will be
able to make rational political
decisions. In an increasingly
fast changing, complex world,
more and more decision making
is necessary at lower levels,
simply because the wealth
of information is such that
little of it can be processed
through the choke points of
centralized control. There is
no lack of native intelligence
on the part of the average
citizen, when compared to the
recorded decisions of some of
technology becoming less
expensive, and therefore less
controllable by economic
means, people are increasingly
bypassing the traditional media
to inform themselves. The
result is that official explanations
are frequently rejected.
For example, a May 2006
Zogby International poll indicated
that 42% of Americans
more likely agree with people
who believe that the US government
and its 9/11 Commission
concealed or refused to
investigate critical evidence
that contradicts their official
explanation of the September
11th 2001 attacks, saying
there has been a cover-up.
The great danger here
is the ‘boy who cried wolf’
dynamic. Once we know our
mainstream media routinely
lies to us about important
matters, the tendency is to
disbelieve them, even when
they are telling the truth. This
lack of trust in officialdom is a
critical issue to be addressed,
if there is to be a relatively
smooth transistion to what
has been described as the first
true civilization in history.
An additional problem
with an excessively top-down
approach to solving problems
is that there is necessarily
a one-size-fits-all aspect to
the solution, which results in
unintended consequences in
many aspects of a complex
system. One upshot of this is
that people who believe in the
need for environmental sustainability,
structures and so on, become
cynical as they tune into the
methods of being used to attain
In the next issue of The
Advisor, the fifth dimension
of the political structure, that
which is concerned with a
higher power and morality,
will be more fully explored.

and would have a major impact
on our political and economic
power structures. This
