Chretien announces that marijuana possession will be decriminalized

Wednesday, April 30th, 2003

Myself, I don’t smoke, but I’m glad to hear that my federal government plans to decriminalize marijuana possession by June 2003. I’m glad that tax money in Canada will no longer be wasted to prosecute users, to bring them up before the courts, and to have them take up space and resources in jails where […]

My Son’s Blog

Tuesday, April 29th, 2003

Of course it was inevitable: first, the younger sister Emma starts blogging (scroll down to that day’s 2nd entry), then the first-born older brother gets into the act, too. Read about war games for the computer from a 12-year old’s point of view on Adam’s blog, aka My Son’s Blog, today. And I promise that […]

Group Decision

Monday, April 28th, 2003

Here in British Columbia, the Women in the Woods today posted a last ditch message on Victoria’s Indymedia. Betty Krawczyk writes, “The ancient forests hold the history of human and animal evolution as well as the earth’s evolution. We humans evolved along with these awesome wonders, and to degrade them for the momentary profit of […]

Skull, once removed

Monday, April 28th, 2003

I usually look forward to reading anything by New York Times journalist Thomas Friedman, but his weekend op-ed piece has me shaking my head. Friedman hinges his piece around a photograph of a group of Iraqis surrounding a freshly exhumed skull, the human remains of one of Saddam Hussein’s many political prisoners. For Friedman, the […]

Sunday, April 27th, 2003

It’s probably real and not a CIA plot (see my blog yesterday about Documents), and I shouldn’t be so paranoid myself. But if it’s not a plot, here’s what it actually is: rankism. Yesterday, the Toronto Star had a story that their reporter, Mitch Potter, found the documents indicating an al Qaeda-Saddam Hussein link. It […]

“Top-secret Iraqi intelligence documents, unearthed by the Toronto Star in the bombed-out headquarters of the dreaded Mukhabarat intelligence service in Baghdad, have established the first clear link between Saddam Hussein and Osama bin Laden’s Al Qaeda organization.” – The Toronto Star, today at 8:50 pm EST If the documents found by Mitch Potter of the […]

My Daughter’s Blog

Saturday, April 26th, 2003

Ok, this blogging thingy is evolving, right?, and it involves ever-expanding circles of individuals, right? How about blogging from a nine-year old’s perspective? It’s My Daughter’s Blog (Really!). In light of the NYTimes article about students not spending enough time writing, blogs for children might be a good thing.

The report that Weyerhaeuser representatives tried to intimidate the protesters blockading a logging road in the Walbran Forest actually made its way into the local paper today, albeit by way of denial. Weyerhaeuser representatives told the press today that they were peaceful in their dealings with the protesters, but it’s certainly the case that they […]
