Won't go to casinos

Yes we are on a countdown to the HST. Fine, Campbell, this new tax of yours will save me about $4,000 to $5,000 a year.

Blueberry shrub is one good looking plant

Not only is this shrub grown for its berries but it is also grown for its good looks! Blueberries have long been a favourite berry among Americans, coming in second only to strawberries.

Oil spill not a tourist attraction

Re: Enbridge Proposal Pipeline to Kitimat Most people everywhere are dead set against pipelines going through their lands and for good reason. After the initial construction is finished the benefit for the population is over.

It's true, take my word for it

Words matter. How words are arranged matters. Writers spend a lot of time thinking about what word to use and how to use it. Sometimes words flow but, at other times, finding the perfect word to encapsulate a concept can be a struggle.
