    Follow the Science - Or is that Poli Science?

    While Mr Lilley may be much less of an xxxxxxx obnoxious than Ms Subramanya, the content of his piece draws almost exclusively from her blog/opinion/article and links to it as supporting "evidence". Though he may have provided copies of some of the court documents, a quick scan (in relative...

    Follow the Science - Or is that Poli Science?

    I was initially inclined to take this as a nothing burger based on the author of this piece in the opinion section (there is a reason why news outlet relegate many columnists to an "opinion" section), but misinformation is a growth industry and is so prevalent that purveyors of it should be held...

    Medics requiring to maintain a license

    Lise was an HCA. I don't think she was ever an RN or anything else clinical; IIRC she was either a DEO or maybe a civi-U ROTP (back when the most common path for HCA was from the ranks or reclassified from an operational MOC, e.g. combat arms).

    A Deeply Fractured US

    87,000 IRS "Agents"? That would be a "massive, massive" increase in the IRS' workforce, especially since there are only 80,411 employees (full and part-time, all occupations) in total. And as for "agents" (i.e., the guys who conduct audits), there are only 8,536; however if you include...

    Remains of unknown soldier to be repatriated for St. John's War Memorial's centennial

    I wonder how difficult it will be to not identify the remains that are repatriated. While the losses were staggering for the Regiment and the small country at the time, the total numbers were (in the grand scale of the war) not huge...

    Drunk B.C. RCMP officer who passed out in drive-thru keeps job

    The example you provided (rape vs sexual assault) was not a softening of the language but a change in the Criminal Code that removed the focus of a certain category of offences from "sex" to "violence". Before the 1982 change "rape" was a narrowly defined offence that required non-consensual...

    As like beer, so for a monarch . . . Why would anybody want to do that? I'll admit it's probably been decades since I drank any Moosepiss (my Gagetown time was in the 1980s). During my time down in Texas (1990), I would often see Moosehead branded trucks moving their product about and was...
