Jan 20/09: New sculpture, "The Start", inspired by one of Nature's greatest gifts, the wind and a metaphor of the 'Obama Era'. The start of the healing process as a result of the inflicted wounds of the Bush Administration.

Another Great Book for a Great Cause -  Canadian Soverignty! The Fight for Canada by David Orchard (see cover in sidebar)

It will give all Canadians courage to call Bush's bluffs and those of his Canadian annexationists lead by Harper.  To quote from the book:
"As at so many other critical times in Canadian history a remarkable individual had emerged." None that I see yet in the mainstream media but perhaps not yet on the radar, possibly, David Orchard. This widely acclaimed book has been called the "Bible of Canadian nationalism." Over four hundred years come to life in clear, vivid language, from the founding of Canada to the North American Free Trade Agreement (NAFTA). It sketches in a gripping and powerful way the early invasions of Canada from south of the border – in 1690, 1711, 1775 and 1812 – as well as the famous free trade elections of 1891, 1911 and 1988, and what it all means for us today.
