Sun TV (aka Fox North): No Goths; only vandals

Full disclosure: I have not actually spent any time watching the new Sun TV channel, which promised in its debut last week to bring Fox News-style partisanship to the Canadian airwaves.

Seriously. Mr. Tough Guy can’t even start his own chainsaw.

Regrettably, I have been unable to confirm the rumour that, for his next demonstration of man’s dominion over nature, Levant is going to buy a really pretty ficus - and not water it.

Crap. I thought we had managed to block the Fox North thing?!

Nah - we just made them follow the rules like everyone else.

He’s not only nuts, he’s childish.

Pretty strong opinion for someone who admits they do not have the facts, ie, they don’t watch the station.
Fairly typical of the so called environmental movement though, facts are just a nuisance to them.
You don’t have to see much of their nonsense about the oil sands to figure out why the greens are losing credibility in the real world.

When we elect people to office, we give them power to make and enact decisions on our behalf. They should have a vision that extends beyond the next election and the latest Dow Jones average — to our children and grandchildren.

We expect our leaders to have a clear picture of our world and the conditions necessary for human life and well-being. If they don’t, how can they make informed decisions? So let me outline some simple, scientifically validated truths about us and the world we live in — truths that should...
