ndp blowing hot air… again

Brian Topp, national campaign director for the NDP, has told the Globe and Mail that the reason why the NDP is no longer eager to have an election is because the Liberals “reneged” on their coalition promise.

And of course, they ...

This is an interesting article, especially for me, with my interest in indigenous precolumbian agriculture in the Americas. Three thousand eight hundred years ago, long before U.S. plains rippled with vast rows of corn, Native Americans planted farms with hardy “pioneer” crops, according to new evidence of the first farming in eastern North America. Because ...
