    Nobody has a mother or a father, according to a certain Bill 28 recently passed in the legislature of Ontario, Canada. Got that? The law’s official title is: “An Act to amend the Children’s Law Reform Act, the Vital Statistics Act and various other Acts respecting parentage and related registrations.” Basically, the law scrubs the words “mother” and “father” from documents, and replaces them with the neutered term “parent.” The law also raises the number of legal parents to as many as four per child. In other words, the government of Ontario will cease to legally recognize the natural origins...

    Union: Why beer and alcohol should not be sold in Ontario grocery stores During the last few years, almost forever, both Liberal and Progressive Conservative governments have floated the idea of allowing beer and/or alcohol to be sold in places other than government-run stores manned by union workers. The idea never went anywhere. Ontarians who favour the end to the government monopoly, were hopeful during the late 1990s when Mike Harris was premier and the late Jim Flaherty was Ontario’s finance minister. In a rare act of true conservatism in Canada, Flaherty opined that if something can be advertised in...

    Ontario Liberals, waist deep and maybe drowning in $1-billion energy scandals and soaring electricity prices, hope Big Green Al Gore can bail them out. At a downtown Toronto event Thursday, the celebrity master of climate hyperbole will join Premier Kathleen Wynne to claim essentially that all the scandal and price increases should be swept aside. **SNIP** Ms. Wynne and Mr. Gore will trumpet that by moving to close down coal plants and fund billion-dollar wind and solar farms across the province, thereby doubling electricity rates, the McGuinty/Wynne Liberals have miraculously and dramatically reduced Ontario’s carbon emissions, and helped save the...

    In F.B.I., Innocent Detainee Found Unlikely Ally By NINA BERNSTEIN t took no more than a week for James P. Wynne, a veteran F.B.I. investigator, to confirm the harmless truth that only now, more than two years later, he is ready to talk about. The small foreign man he helped arrest for videotaping outside an office building in Queens on Oct. 25, 2001, was no terrorist. He was a Buddhist from Nepal planning to return there after five years of odd jobs at places like a Queens pizzeria and a Manhattan flower shop. He was taping New York street scenes...

    When Defense Secretary Robert M. Gates ousted the Air Force’s two top leaders last week, there was more to it than just the service’s reported slip-ups with handling of nuclear weapons, according to Pentagon insiders. The shake-up was a clear message to the Air Force to quit making a direct case for preferred systems and get more “Joint.” It also took from the service its top champions in ongoing roles and missions discussions, decapitating airpower advocacy in the Department of Defense. Gates told reporters at a Pentagon press conference that the nuclear issue was his sole reason for accepting the...

    WASHINGTON (AP) -- Nonlethal weapons such as high-power microwave devices should be used on American citizens in crowd-control situations before being used on the battlefield, the Air Force secretary said Tuesday. The object is basically public relations. Domestic use would make it easier to avoid questions from others about possible safety considerations, said Secretary Michael Wynne. "If we're not willing to use it here against our fellow citizens, then we should not be willing to use it in a wartime situation," said Wynne. "(Because) if I hit somebody with a nonlethal weapon and they claim that it injured them in...
