Tens of thousands of Canadians have written to me in recent weeks to wish me well. I want to thank each and every one of you for your thoughtful, inspiring and often beautiful notes, cards and gifts. Your spirit and love have lit up my home, my spirit, and my determination.
Unfortunately my treatment has not worked out as I hoped. So I am giving this letter to my partner Olivia to share with you in the circumstance in which I cannot continue.
I recommend that Hull-Aylmer MP Nycole Turmel continue her work as our interim leader until a permanent successor is elected.
I recommend the party hold a leadership vote as early as possible in the New Year, on approximately the same timelines as in 2003, so that our new leader has ample ti…Read more >
I'd just like to make sure all Canadians know that at 11:21 PST (14:21 in Ottawa) the minority Conservative government fell in a non-confidence motion due to being in contempt of Parliament (first time in Commonwealth history). Stephen Harper is expected to go to the Governor General tomorrow at 9:00 to ask him to dissolve Parliament. That means in ~35 days, we will be having an election. I urge EVERY Canadian citizen to exercise your democratic right to vote. If you are out of the country, out of town, or not able to make it to a polling station on election day, you can phone your vote in, just check out Elections Canada's website to find out how. If your are a Canadian citizen who is not registered to vote, you can still do in before the…Read more >
Remember, remember always
Those that for you fought,
Keep inside your heart
The freedom that they sought.
And look into the eyes
Of veterans young and old,
Hear their tales, their stories
The memories that they hold.
For if you forget to thank them
Those memories they will die,
The poppies laying withered
The sun not in the sky.
And respect the flag-draped coffins
Of those coming home from war,
Who fought for friends, for family
Won't see them any more.
A moment so keep silent
When elevens all align,
For all those who fought, who died for you
So that you may live sublime.
Now that Remembrance Day is upon us, do not forget the past. Do not forget those who fought for our freedom in the ultimate equivalent exchange.
Lest we forget.Read more >
This is a poem about Yao comma Ling,
Who came from the eastern country on Xing,
He searched with much strife,
To prolong his life,
And a song about Greed he did sing
There once was a boy named Edward Elric,
Whose decorating tastes made others quite sick,
And serpent battalions,
Were all in his bag of strange tricks
Here is a story of Riza Hawkeye,
Who can hit far-off targets without having to try,
Now don't get me wrong,
She is very strong,
And could prob'ly make little kids cry
We shall end the night with a man name of Hughes,
Who has sadly entered an eternal snooze,
His death made us cry,
He was a really great guy,
His smile he never could loseRead more >
We have recently been seeing a problem here at the Fullmetal wiki. I sure many of you know of this problem, but people are putting birthdays in characters' info boxes. I want to make something clear: we do not know the date that any character is born, we only know the year. Please take this into account when you are making a page, CorbeauKarasu seems to be getting very stressed out.Read more >
