I can say that given the crap going on in Ottawa nowadays, something like this is expected. Given that the Coward's Party of Canada is lead by a fascist.

Also felt like history got put on replay. The style reminds me more of the FLQ crisis that happened before I was born. Only an idiot would think that history doesn't repeat itself. But there are probably enough people in the country that could see the similarities between the two incidents. Last one was with Quebec separation, and this one feels more like the powers of corruption residing at 24 Sussex Drive.

I'm sure a few formerly living PMs would probably want to see the current one hung or shot for treason.

Hopefully the CEO will be called back for being a coward and also get fired. His credentials may look impressive, but his manners belong in the brig. I wouldn't be surprised if Mr. Iain Standen's attitude gets him heaved like a bloody anchor off the ship. Stuff like this makes the governing board look like they should be getting a few tastes of the proverbial cat o' nine tails.

Frankly from what I had seen, he seems to be more of the kind for getting the gibbet. Antique method of killing that happened to pre-date the guillotine by a few hundred years.

Think we could see the start of a U.N. Spacy? Or will we be seeing the possible start of the United Federation of Planets?

If the former, all we need is to see a few functional Valkyrie aircraft. On the other hand, the latter could mean we wind up with something similar to the Enterprise.

Actually I know of that first hand from having lived in the NWT as a kid. One of the emergency numbers I could remember that was almost universal to the territories would have been xxx-2222 for the fire department. Though I do recall having also dispatched fire calls from the hotel that I had worked at, where I could have ignored the front desk if there was a fire call coming in. Also had false alarms and prank calls, though those would just be written down on the little clipboard beside the desk in the rear office as well.

I haven't looked at a NorthwesTel phone book in a while, so I would assume the numbers are still the same for the NWT & Nunavut.

Better to be a smart socialist libertarian, than a whiny tory maggot that wanks off to the biggest overpaid bankster.

Would this mean high finance porn (i.e. CEOs that happen to be celebrated for being overpaid and underperforming) could be put under the scope as well? I might say so, just to bring in some equality to the world.
