SNAPSHOT - University of Windor campus at Abars?

Windsor - Jun. 11, 2016: Yesterday I half jokingly said that the University of Windsor should think about turning Abar's into a satellite campus for the History Dept. They would, of course, have to negotiate with the Moroun people. Perhaps a land swap with something closer to the bridge. FULL STORY

Super tasty, low-carb lettuce wraps

London - May. 11, 2016: This recipe is simple to prepare and is very low in carbohydrates (approximately five carbs per serving with five large lettuce leaves and the sour cream). I use Field Gate organic sausages from Ontario, which are fantastic. The herbs and spices are full of antioxidants, which can be lacking in some low-carb food, and they add a lot of flavour.

Where did the money go?
Toronto - Nov. 30, 2015: The Ontario Liberals’ shenanigans continue to surprise even their biggest skeptics. Government messages are scripted to deliver an image of high moral ground, as leaks and documents reveal quite the opposite. The Hydro One sale is a case in point. The story line is all about securing funds to build needed infrastructure – the same they neglected and procrastinated on for the past 12 years. Reading the Government’s financial documents, however, tells a different story

Washington - Nov. 25, 2015: The cool, calm, clear thinking that kept the NATO alliance intact as it weathered the Cold War with the Soviet Union has been shattered. Decades of careful diplomacy and nail-biting inaction during the potentially world-annihilating nuclear arms race of the 1950s, 60s and 70s appears to have been sacrificed in a few brief seconds by Turkey. In those moments when Turkish Air Force jets shot down a Russian fighter plane Tuesday, Russian President Vladimir Putin was also given a strategic goal: Destabilize and divide NATO.

Ottawa - Nov. 7, 2015: Rona Ambrose is not flashy, she’s guilty of being media shy, and as a cabinet minister she carried the can for the Conservatives on some of their most controversial policies.
