Quote of the Day

Michael Byers is the NDP candidate for federal office in Vancouver Centre.

He lamented yesterday that "his two sons may never see polar bears in the wild."


How many human persons have actually seen polar bears in the wild? 137?

How many might expect to?

Was this part of your plan?

I'll go to University, get a medical degree, marry Ellen, have kids, play golf and , oh yes, stop by the arctic some day to, you guessed it, see polar bears in the wild.

Running against this wizard are Hedy Fry and Lorne Mayencourt.

Somebody get out the nets.

maybe Byers and his sons will get to see one of six hundred polar bears get slaughtered each year, by the locals up north.

I am not sure what your point is exactly. There are many animals that I have not seen in the wild and it is likely that I may never seem them in their natural habitat. Are you suggesting that because most people will never see polar bears, lions, tigers, gorillas, etc, that we should not try to protect them from extinction? If so, than I think the quote by Bertrand Russell that you posted on the right hand side of your page best describes your statement, "If fifty million people say a foolish thing, it is still a foolish thing."

Typical NDP candidate, head full of nonsense and "earnest" as hell.
"Earnest" as in 'stupid that's been to university."
