WASHINGTON -– Climate change is no longer a distant threat, but a real and present danger in the United States, according to a government report issued Tuesday.

The report is the latest update from the U.S. Global Change Research Program, and details ways that climate change — caused predominantly by the emission of heat-trapping greenhouse gases — is already being felt across the country.

Kyle Vose: ‘Why does the money have to come out of our pockets?’ (March 24, 2010)

By:  Canada, Politics Government, Published on Fri Mar 15 2013

Brian Dubourdie and Kyle Vose agree that Premier Kathleen Wynne is a good person who wants to do the right thing for the poor. But they dread the harm she will do to Ontarians with disabilities.

Both men receive disability support payments. Dubourdie is recovering from thyroid cancer but battling chronic obstructive pulmonary disease, depression and alcoholism (hasn’t had a drink in eight months). Vose has HIV, hepatitis B, hyperthyroidism and has been treated for multiple cancers. Neither is capable of working steadily.

When it comes to politics, Canadians are generally an apathetic bunch. Often, a controversy will brew and within a week or two we forget about it and move on.

It appears Bill C-38 is one issue we’re not willing to let go.

Saturday is the one month anniversary of the introduction of the so-called omnibus budget bill, a 425-page bill that amends 60 different acts, repeals a half dozen others and adds three more.

In addition to the changes to employment insurance,  Bill C-38 includes controversial changes to old age security, more than 100 pages of new provisions to environmental regulations, an important alteration to the oversight of CSIS and significant amendments in laws related to fisheries, food safety, national parks and natural resource projects.
