Subject : Dick Cheney Running To Canada
Name : cranston36 Date : 2005-09-02 04:05  View : 3448  : 6  : 2  
Dick Cheney is headed for Calgary, Alberta, Canada on September 8th and hosted by the The Fraser Institute
Fraser is based in Vancouver, British Columbia.
Michael Walter, founder of the ?걟nstitute??is quoted as saying, "It's a private dinner for a few friends of ours with the vice president. It's by invitation only."
The cost for dinner ranges from $5,000 to $10,000.
Cheney is the Vice President of the United States. Why does he have official business in Calgary before a group that describes itself like this: ?룲n raising the level of understanding about economic and social policy, the Institute's ideas contribute directly to the economic well-being of individual Canadians.??
What do Canadians expect to learn about social policy from Dick Cheney who has carped at the United Nations and publicly used profanity?
It might be that Dick is attracted to them.
In 2001 they released some information entitled, ?? Canadians not as generous as Americans according to the annual "Generosity Index"?? Maybe he has found his true home after all.
Other studies this ?걟nstitute??released include :
?룾ew study says poverty in Canada continues to be overstated??which was followed by ?뤂eturning British Columbia to Prosperity??
Cheney, is from Wyoming where 85 percent of petroleum production is controlled by British Petroleum during these times of economic trouble in the United States may be trying to gain insight from a report the Institute put out in 2001, ?뤇he Perfect Food in a Perfect Mess: The Cost of Milk in Canada??


The Fraser Institute continues to argue against Global Warming.
