Bio-fuel risk

This article on bio-fuels shows why things need to be thoroughly researched before they are embarked upon.Even ideas that seem to be great to start out with can have serous drawbacks that aren't always discovered before the damage has been done.I think that bio-fuels do show some promise for the future but the advantages must be weight against the possible disadvantages.

Product of Canada?

I am not a fan of Stephen Harper by any stretch of the imagination but this is one time I agree with him.I think this is a great idea and should have been done long ago.Consumers should be able to know where their food is coming from and the average person looking at a label marked made in Canada expects that all of the product comes from Canada not that almost half could be made anywhere else in the world.

Love in Saudi Arabia

This is an interesting article about love in Saudi Arabia.Things are so different there than in our own country it is hard for me to even imagine the restrictions placed on young people and on women in particular.
