That would be like leaving money in the bank, Silly.
Spend it, spend it until, it is gone. The last time I was in Canada I couldn't find a tree over 8" in diameter.
Spend it, burn it, rape it, plunder it. Pretty soon we will be looking like Lebanon, where the giant Cedars grew.

We're just trying to be a good friend to the United States. And Trudeau has promised to plant several trees and not cut them down until they are at least 8" in diameter. Or until next Christmas, whichever comes first.

Tragedy of the Commons still prevalent.

At least he acknowledges that humans are the drivers of climate change, while he contributes even more to the pace it's being driven.

I dunno what else he or any politician in Canada would be allowed to do. Which leads to a certain despair.

Is Geng really asking a question?

Hey Geng, can US economy grow with declining oil production?

What is a political statement made in the form of a question?

(Like the old TV game show. All answers must be phrased as a question)

"Questions Masquerading as StatementsSometimes even direct questions are tricky because they can look like statements, and the only way to tell your reader otherwise is to add a question mark (1). There's a big difference in meaning between “He went to the store.” and “He went to the store?” Yet the only difference between the two sentences is that one ends with a period and one ends with a question mark. The question mark makes it a direct question that shows surprise. What the heck was he doing at the store?"
