Not long ago, a second rate poet, standing in the middle of a park in Burlington, Ontario, started shouting "We are temporal, but my words are indelible."
Three hours later, and still without an audience, the second rate poet got on his bike, went home, gathered his books, turned on his computer and created this website.

From Wikipedia: At the urging of the First Lord of the Admiralty Winston Churchill, Prime Minister Borden agreed to finance the construction of three dreadnoughts for $35 million.[1] This plan was far more costly than Laurier's original plan for the Canadian-built fleet, and would reap no benefits to Canadian industries whatsoever. On December 5, 1912, Borden introduced the Naval Aid Bill as a one-time contribution to Britain's navy. After a bitter debate and a long filibuster by the opposition Liberals, the Borden government invoked cloture on the debate, for the first time ever in Canadian Parliament, on May 15, 1913. The Act was soundly defeated by the Liberal-majority Senate two weeks later.
