Dr. G: I don't see any more accountability at all. Just more money.

We should probably carry this over to another thread if you're interested Dr. G. since I think we are entering the realm of things people CAN make up.

Boy, 1, survives night in Quebec woods

Apr 27, 2009 03:24 PM
THE CANADIAN PRESS

MONTREAL – Quebec provincial police say it's a miracle that a one-year-old boy was found in good health after he spent a cold night alone in the woods.

Police say the child, allegedly abandoned by his father Sunday morning, spent nearly 12 hours in the forest, wearing just a T-shirt and diaper in rainy, five-degree weather.

Const. Patrick Sullivan ran into the thick brush when a police helicopter spotted the infant around 90 metres from a road in Quebec's Eastern Townships.

Sullivan says the boy, who still doesn't walk, held his arms up when the officer reached him.

He says the child was in good spirits despite suffering mild frostbite on his cheeks.

The boy's father, who allegedly left the child in the forest after crashing his car, is expected to face criminal charges Monday.

Happy and horror all at once....

Question RCMP deploys 2 incompatible computer systems: $9m/year extra

Quote:
B.C. RCMP's separate computer system costs $9M extra per year

The RCMP's use of two non-compatible computer systems to house data about criminal cases — one system in B.C. and another that serves the rest of Canada — is costing taxpayers millions of dollars extra every year, CBC News has learned.

Internal documents obtained by the CBC under an Access to Information request reveal that the extra costs of running two computer systems is "conservatively estimated" at more than $9 million a year. (more)

Saw this today on CNN.com --

"Jeb Bush says it's time for Republicans to leave the Reagan era behind them and look forward. The former Florida Governor insists the party's ideas need to be "forward-looking and relevant" instead of dwelling on the nostalgia of the good old days."

Guess he feels that the Republican Party should now focus upon the "accomplishments" of the two Bush presidents, and use their strategies to win future elections.

To this I say, "Read my lips ................. no new Bushes". We shall see.
