Two people close to a Quebecer who went missing in a dangerous part of northern Mexico will travel to the troubled country to try and find him.
Full story: Canadian man missing in Mexico
Will you continue to visit Mexico?
As for Uplink, yes, I do bash the right far more than I bash the left, but that's because the far right poses much more of a threat than the far left does. Don't get me wrong, I don't like the far left at all, but it's the far right that has me most worried for our future, with people like Glenn Beck at their helm. If you don't mind I'll gladly stand here in the middle and keep pointing at people who flock to political extremities.

I have yet to see you say anything negative about the leftards except when you add comments like that after a snide comment about conservatives.
Do you really think you fool anyone into believing you are anything but a bona fide conservative hater like our village idiot?
I'm no member of the Stephen Harper fan club, but he and his party are by far the best of the poor choices offered.

ďAt least Flaherty was smart enough to know it was a bad idea."
Lol - I was referring to the Amero :)

Did BrucetheIDIOT hijack your name, Jay? Fiscal conservatives certainly don't want to dismantle social services but they would appreciate a means test or a financial discovery. For example, there is one (1) doctor in west Toronto that has issued 60% of all the "enhanced diet" certificates for the entire city. This little certificate qualifies someone on welfare an extra $250 a month for food. The good doctor is known not to bother questioning or examining the "patients" he is just thrilled to have the business because for each visit he gets to bill OHIP.
Social services are supposed to be a safety net for the needy and are not begrudged by fiscal conservatives. The absolutely RAMPANT abuse of all social services, like blind wide open door immigration, is just a vote catcher for Liberals.
And: "Seems to be the primary foothold for the popular conservative other than not allowing men to be butt buddies. At least Flaherty was smart enough to know it was a bad idea."
Did you mean the butt buddy thingy or the Amero thingy?

Helping the crime situation in mexico must have been what was on Martin and Bushes minds when they created the Security and Prosperity Partnership of North America (SPP).
And then we had idiots in canada pushing for the Amero. Can you just imagine what it would be like if our currency was linked to Mexicos ?
I'm surprised conservatives aren't jumping on the Amero bandwagon "because they view it as an attempt by U.S. businesses to gain access to Canada's extensive natural resources while dismantling the nation's social services." Isn't that what you guys always wanted ? More USD style business and less social services ? Seems to be the primary foothold for the popular conservative other than not allowing men to be butt buddies. At least Flaherty was smart enough to know it was a bad idea.
Well, we might have spent the last decade of so opening doors and building bridges to mexico for the economic advantages. Maybe it's time we pick our friends more carefully, and really think twice about integrating anything with mexico for 'economic gain' until mexico cleans up its act.
