Thanks QCT and Keep up to the good work

I'll take this opportunity to let you know how much I appreciate the work done by your collaborators.

I particularly enjoy reading "Memorials and Things of Fame" along with Cathy's notes, and photos and articles coming from Cpl Kyle Giffin while in Afghanistan. I still have on my fridge the picture of the cat born in Camp Mirage ! It makes me think of our troops out there...

Poll 09-11-30.PNG

Le Devoir is reporting on a Léger Marketing poll of Quebec voters. The Bloc has a very strong lead, and is at their 2008 level. This score is inflated, however, by the weak Liberal number. They are tied with the Tories who are also at 2008 levels.

The New Democrats are riding high at 17%, while the Greens are at only 5%.

I will get my H1N1 vaccine

Canada must maintain its Canadian International Immunization Initiative

For many years, Canada has had a very effective program of immunizing children around the world, thus preventing deadly diseases such as measles, tetanus and tuberculosis.

Consequently, I hope the government's plan includes the necessary investments to maintain and even extend our important Canadian International Immunization Initiative.
