Brian Mulroney.............RIP.

.............nothing about the U.S. he never loved and like so many Conservative parties sold Canada out to them.

Never voted for his Conservatives back then because at the time we had Liberals that had "some" brains and were not an embarrassment around the world. You would get my vote today just to rid Canada of this current fatal cancer calling themselves Liberals!

Brian Mulroney, he was my #2 most disliked PM, now he's #3.
I'm posting this from Traditional lands of the British Empire & the current Lands of The Dominion of Canada.
I also give thanks for this ethos richness bestowed on us via British Colonialism.

Isn't there usually a nut on the other end of a bolt?

#1 for me.

All these years gone by, and I'm still struggling to see what exactly free trade did for Canada. :-X

I’m not a fan of politicians period.
The one thing I didn’t mind about Mulroney, was he is one of a very few who could debate PET right under a table. Which was enjoyable
I don't give a damn whether people/posters like me or dislike me, I'm not on earth to win any popularity contests.

Boeing Whistleblower found dead in his truck. No one, I mean NO ONE is going to believe he committed suicide. More like "suicide", heck, let's invent a new word, he's been "Epsteined." He was testifiying against Boeing. I mean to improve the product, and lives. He's not going to committ suicide. Come on. Come ON!

John Barnett, I hope your death results in some further investigation into Boeing.

https://www.bbc.com/news/business-68534703

"A former Boeing employee known for raising concerns about the firm's production standards has been found dead in the US.

John Barnett had worked for Boeing for 32 years, until his retirement in 2017.

In the days before his death, he had been giving evidence in a whistleblower lawsuit against the company.

Boeing said it was saddened to hear of Mr Barnett's passing. The Charleston County coroner confirmed his death to the BBC on Monday.

It said the 62-year-old had died from a "self-inflicted" wound on 9 March and police were investigating..."

Yes, I'm sure they are "saddened" to hear of his death...

He could have been getting death threats etc from Boing employees and family members and just couldn't take it anymore.

Or Boeing has Clinton like connections.

As it is, Eric Carmen passed away, undisclosed cause, and he is a man who gave us a sound track in our youth!
