    You people only call them ideologues because they don't conform to your ideology. You want them to be ideologues. Just on your side.

    Depends on your point of view and your reading of their oath and the constitution. Canada's courts are different than yours, but often no less intrusive and self-serving.

    As an example, our Supreme Court recently ruled that a mandatory 3 yr sentence for possession of an illegal handgun and a mandatory 5 yr sentence for a second such offense, was too restrictive on judicial discretion and too punitive to offenders. They fabricated an unrealistic and never experienced scenario to support their position. Those in opposition to the majority, including the longest serving and most experienced/knowledgeable in criminal law, called out the majority for their fantasy ruling. The majority wasn't looking at the law or the case before them. In fact, they let the sentences against the two defendants who challenged the law stand while at the same time striking down the law - that's insanity and the ruling of a power hungry group determined to govern, not just adjudicate.

    Good morning, CJ.

    That is certainly thought-provoking, to say the least! Basically they have just said "we're striking down the law today, but since you dared to open your mouth and challenge it yesterday, you're guilty so we're going to let our verdict stand, since we know what's best, you troublemaking rabble-rousers!"

    Good morning Lady P,

    Nice and sunny here but a lot cooler the last couple of days compared to last weekend. Hope your new plants aren't getting the frost treatment at night these days.

    Have fun and enjoy your day.

    I had to bring a few baby plants inside the past few nights, since they're still in their grow pots, but the ones already planted in the garden are on their own. I hope the old saying "what doesn't kill you makes you stronger" is true, otherwise I did a lot of work for nothing!

    It was 46 degrees this morning and overcast - quite a change from the high 80s we've been enjoying lately! Confusing to plants and humans alike. I haven't been outside yet this morning to check on the garden - but looking out my kitchen window at the deck area, I see the line of rhododendrons are taking their turn showing off, and they're gorgeous!

    The purple rhododendrons are really spectacular when they come into bloom this time of year, especially if you have mature, five-footers or so. It's too bad they don't last in bloom longer, but that kind of show needs a lot of rest between concerts.

    Mine are exactly as you described, having been planted years ago, and they are beautiful! Saw a few bees around them yesterday, so I hope they're making a comeback too, poor things. Poisonous sprays used to kill weeds and bad bugs are hurting beneficial insects, too, unfortunately, and ecologists are saying the monarch butterfly is in crisis mode at this point! I know I saw none last year when I used to see dozens during their migration travels. I attributed that to our lousy weather, but apparently it's far more serious! What kind of tradeoff are we making in order to keep people fed? I garden totally organically, so they're safe at my house, but it's not enough. Sad...

    These things come and go Lady P - I remember not seeing any Monarchs for years until the last couple of years when they've started to return. Similarly, West Nile got the crows about a decade ago and we didn't have any around and now last year they started appearing again and this year they're back in droves - enough to drive you crazy!! But that's the resilience of nature. The bees are an issue here too, but there are enough in my backyard for my liking, thanks very much.

    Anyway, it's nice to be enjoying the outdoors again - have fun!!
