Cologne: What more do we need to know?

Here are some questions I think we should be asking ourselves about the attacks in Cologne.

Does this video explain the refugee crisis "perfectly"? Not even close.

More on the Kurdis: The NDP Rides the Bandwagon

No sooner did I publish my weblog piece on the deaths of the three Kurdish refugees in the waters off Turkey, I received in my e-mail inbox a missive from my MP, the New Democratic Party's Craig Scott (Broadview-Danforth).
