Apparently Quebec knows a guy...

...who knows a guy...

Based on “conservative” estimates, a provincial registry will cost at least $30 million to set up, but Thériault acknowledged that the number could fluctuate. “You have to take the time to draw up the legislation, table the legislation, adopt the legislation, all of that. You have to understand that it can’t be done overnight.”
So, no actual tenders and no actual completion date... but Quebec will pay a fraction of the $2,000,000,000 the Federal Liberals pissed away on their not quite functional post-Ghamil Gharbi public relations exercise?

Whaddaya wanna bet that number doesn't "fluctuate" down?

If your biggest problem with this stuff...

...is the purportedly sexist lingo... you're a Liberal...

Well, c'mon now folks...

...you can't discriminate against the poor dear because he had demons in his dome...

The forensic find comes hours after it emerged that Lubitz was forced to postpone his pilot training in 2008 because of mental health problems, with a friend saying he was 'in depression'.

Many things happened in quick succession in the cockpit. Batouti reached over and shut off the fuel, killing both engines. Habashi screamed, "What is this? What is this? Did you shut the engines?"
Next up... the age-old bias against visually impaired pilots.

LAST WORD: Closing the barn door
The federal government has issued an emergency order requiring Canadian airlines to have two crew members in the cockpit at all times.
Better late than never I guess.

FROM THE COMMENTS:

I must rise to defend the honor of dogs. My malamutes are my hench-beasts and are completely loyal. Having a cat is like inviting Vidkun Quisling into your home. Take the wife out for a nice dinner and the next thing you know, the cat has sold off your Amex card number to someone in Vladivostok.

No, thank you.

That secretive, tyrannical George W....

...wait just a freakin' minute...

"For the second consecutive year, the Obama administration more often than ever censored government files or outright denied access to them under the U.S. Freedom of Information Act."
how's that hopey changey thing working out for you
The government took longer to turn over files when it provided any, said more regularly that it couldn’t find documents, and refused a record number of times to turn over files quickly that might be especially newsworthy.

It also acknowledged in nearly 1 in 3 cases that its initial decisions to withhold or censor records were improper under the law — but only when it was challenged.

Its backlog of unanswered requests at year’s end grew remarkably by 55 per cent to more than 200,000.
Listen up sheeple. You truly do get the kind of government you deserve.

As the protests began, the cameras stayed on the regents. That’s when Napolitano leans over to Varner and said, “Let’s just break. Let’s go, let’s go. We don’t have to listen to this crap.” Her hot mic caught the comment.

The comment was a different tone from Napolitano at the very same meeting. “They want to be sure that their voices are being heard and I want to commit to them that their voices are being heard.”
Wake up folks... Barack and friends ARE the One Percent.
