    Matthew Fisher dies - a giant of journalism

    Truly the best journalist that I ever encountered in 25+ years. His strategic understanding and acumen, his ease with all things military, including a passion for embedding with soldiers at the front, and the respect that he had across ranks, resulted in some of the most outstanding, real...

    What would happen if:

    We have all seen what has been happening in Texas. I suspect that the ramifications of a more widespread power event would be catastrophic, even here in Canada (goodbye Toronto and Montreal). The link below is dated, and perhaps a bit biased, but is a good start for discussion...
