    It made me wonder what I would find, yes.

    After five seconds I knew all I needed to know about them while looking at "cap and trade." I had an idea when I read the subtitle, but the intro convinced me. It's based on a great many assumptions ("we are trashing the planet," instead of "we are a PART of the planet" or "we were created along with the planet") so there was no point in continuing.

    I'm sure a kid in a government school today would agree with all of it. Until they have to pay for it as adults, of course, but by then it will be too late to stop the tyranny.

    Y'know Art, I thought the same thing at the beginning......but I managed to push past my pig headedness and watch the whole thing. I'm glad I did because 24 years ago when my drunken a$$ was thrown in prison, I realized that with 168 fellow inmates with only one other person including myself in that rathole having a post secondary education.....the main problem with the world was IGNORANCE. An open mind is part of the solution instead of part of the problem.....
    Whatever you do Art....just keep doing what you did so you can get what you got....

    They are pretty good. Even though they don't have to, they run a tight ship.

    Digital Gauges? Something for the class of next year to break LOL!

    Nice. I've heard the lab the college in Alberta has is pretty good. I heard it has a trainer with see through piping on it to better understand whats happening inside a system. I know the budgets differ from college to college. Our instructors barely get enough to cover copper which is a shame. We get a lot of donations from industry and other schools. I know we're partnered with Sporlan (as is SAIT).

    Our school has actually grown quite a bit in the past couple years. They built a new trades building where they have a welding program, aquaculture tech., and electrician program.

    Next year they're adding another nursing program, an industrial electrical program, plumbing, and carpentry. However, they're using existing buildings that are being remodeled for the trades.

    Ray-

    Is your school getting any grants from Mike Holmes' foundation?
