Christine Nugent, the Barrie federal candidate for said party, says in her letter of last week, "How about having a policy of nation-building instead of nation-wrecking."
Maybe she should talk to people from Czechoslovakia, Hungary, ...

Questions remain after Prentice grounds Alberta’s fleet Alberta’s taxpayer-funded fleet will be grounded by early December, a government source says, but it may be much longer before the actual costs of the move are known.
