National Council of Women of Canada - Blog

A Blog gives you current information and items of inerest. The National Council of Women of Canada (NCWC) has done two blogs on the meetings of the Commission on the Status of Women, 2010, and 2011. We are continuing now with a blog, on a range of topics of interst to members and the public. The NCWC has a very complete web site where you can learn more about the history and members of Council.

A blog (a blend of the term web log) is a type of or part of a website. Blogs are usually maintained by an individual with regular entries of commentary, descriptions of events, or other material such as graphics or video. Entries are commonly displayed in reverse-chronological order.

Most blogs (including this one) are interactive, allowing visitors to leave comments and even message each other via widgets on the blogs and it is this interactivity that distinguishes them from other static websites

Many blogs provide commentary or news on a particular subject. A typical blog combines text, images, and links to other blogs, web pates, and other media related to its topic. The ability of readers to leave comments in an interactive format is an important part of many blogs.

As of 16 February 2011 (2011 -02-16), there were over 156 million public blogs in existence.

It's been quite a week

This has been the first week of the election - what i've noticed is -
  • Harper saying he wants a one on one debate, and then changing his mind. Also, why not Elizabeth May in the leadership debate? But that is the media, not the leader's decision. This has to be agreed to well before the next election - just what the rules are.
  • Then, the Liberal annoucnement about child care - yes it might cost money, but aren't our children worth it? We should all be paying our fair share of taxes. I liked Jeffrey Simpson's article on income splitting, printed here on the Blog. 
  • A visual impression that sticks in my mind is yesterday with Harper's announcement regarding the funding for Newfoundland - not the announcment, but the fact all the media were behind a fence! Yes, they were at the back of the space, behind a fence, and could ask 4 questions. When the first one asked, why 4 questions? Harper said, well OK, we'll make it 5.  I thought something is seriously wrong with this - if the media can't ask questions, we are in trouble. 
 The above are personal thoughts from the administrator.
