    TORONTO - There are still no leads in the case of an eastern Ontario scientist who disappeared without a trace last month, leaving his colleagues mystified. Lachlan Cranswick hasn't been seen since Jan. 18, when he left work at the National Research Council's Canadian Neutron Beam Centre in Chalk River, northwest of Ottawa. His nearby Deep River house was reportedly left unlocked and his car was in the garage. His wallet, keys and passport have all been accounted for......

    OTTAWA -- Prime Minister Paul Martin incorrectly blamed the United States for gun crime in Canada by using an unsubstantiated figure to assert that 50 per cent of this country's gun crimes involve smuggled firearms, U.S. Ambassador David Wilkins said yesterday. Mr. Wilkins said that Canadian officials admitted in meetings with U.S. Secretary of State Condoleezza Rice this week "that that figure was just grabbed out of thin air." He insisted the Canadian government should focus on joint efforts to combat gun-running rather than pointing fingers. The figure, which others have used previously, is not based on any statistical study...

    Carolyn Parrish was accorded a free ride for her anti-American tirades--until the Drudge Report checked in. Drudge prominently displayed the infamous picture of Parrish’s expensively booted foot crushing a George W. Bush doll over the story of her upcoming Canadian Broadcast Corporation (CBC) foot-stomping stunt. Today the Liberal MP’s debut on CBC’s This Hour Has 22 Minutes foot-stomping antics takes the backseat as a marginalized Parrish rendered her swan song from the abysmal ranks of the Canadian independent. Canada Prime Minister Paul Martin finally got around to firing his mean-mouthed backbencher yesterday–and that story is up on Drudge too. The...

    CBS and NBC were satisfied Tuesday night to note how Secretary of State Colin Powell contended Osama bin Laden's audio tape offered proof of his links to Iraq and then to point out how others in the government fear it's a signal of an impending terrorist attack on the U.S. But ABC's Peter Jennings wasn't satisfied with just doing that. He once again offered the most anti-administration spin of the night with a trilogy of three stories addressing subjects not touched by CBS or NBC. Anchoring the February 11 World News Tonight from Phoenix, Jennings argued that "a lot...

    What this war is not about By RICK SALUTIN Friday, January 3, 2003 – Page A13 Four things the coming war against Iraq is not about: It is not about terror. Proof A: No connection has ever been shown between Iraq and al-Qaeda; in fact, there is long enmity between their leaders. Proof B: U.S. leaders have clearly used Sept. 11 as a pretext to attack Iraq. Bob Woodward says in his new book that Donald Rumsfeld was already calling for Iraq's inclusion in the war on terror on "the day after"; national security adviser Condoleezza Rice told The New...

    LINKWomen take aim at Governor's races By David Von Drehle Washington Post Staff Writer Monday, April 29, 2002; Page A01 FLINT, Mich. -- As the ranking Democrat in the Michigan legislature, state Sen. John Cherry is as neutral as a beige sofa in an off-white room when it comes to the highly competitive race to be the party's nominee for governor. But his wife isn't. "Yes, I'm married to one, but I am really tired of white male leaders," Pam Cherry explained over chilled shrimp at a fundraiser for state Attorney General Jennifer Granholm. "We need something new, something fresh."...
