  • 10:38 @charris0n What US state were you working in? #
  • 10:41 I have to mail in my 2008 tax return because I missed the September online deadline. This is not helping my procastination. #
  • 10:45 You know you are sick of winter when you envy the Haitians sleeping outdoors (too soon?). #
  • 10:50 Crazy TV news quote of the day: "they are sending Quebeckers because they can easely learn Creol." French is the school language in Haiti. #
  • 10:53 ... Yes, the poorest nation in the hemisphere is mostly bilingual. #
  • 11:29 @kathleenogrady The north of Haiti was not affected by the earthquacke The folks there are just as poor as before. #
  • 11:43 @AhmadNassri "Economy powered money" ??? What does that mean. #
  • 11:58 @AhmadNassri I studied economics in university. The weathiest Canadians (the Thompsons and Rogers) inherited their money tax free... #
  • 12:00 @AhmadNassri ...but at least they pay income tax on interest and dividends. #
  • 12:01 @AhmadNassri Unlike Japan and the USA, there is no inheritance tax in Canada. #
  • 12:03 @AhmadNassri Indeed. And if healthcare and education were financed via donations instead of taxes, like you propose, they would be richer! #
  • 12:11 @ungaro No. But rich countries should buy stuff in the DR instead of flying stuff into Haiti from Canada and Europe. #
  • 12:15 @poitrasCBC Not if I out scoop you (from my basement in my shorts). #
  • 12:23 @smithjoanna Didn't the embassy ask you to leave? #
  • 12:26 @smithjoanna I'd like news from the north of the country. How are Northern Haitians coping with the influx of POP refugees. #
  • 12:32 Wow, already 12:30PM on this non-holiday New Brunswick Monday. I should get of bed. On the other hand I, can look for work using my iPhone. #
  • 12:41 W finally has naked women (10PM Eastern RT @sproudfoot: Gorgeous ads for How to Look Good Naked Canada. bit.ly/6VsAeM #
  • 12:44 Let it die! RT @CBCOttawa: Group prepares bid for National Post bit.ly/8Qj5tp #
  • 12:48 According to an unreliable source (the New York Times Magazine), the New York times online will start charging soon.Good for Canadian papers #
  • 12:50 Can online newspapers be convicted of dumping if they charge foreigners less? #
  • 12:55 @AhmadNassri Just to be clear, that "they" was rich people. #
  • 13:02 There is no Costco in the Dominican Republic, so this will have to do for the UN in Haiti : bit.ly/6iP7AK #
  • 13:0 4 @AhmadNassri Countries with the highest taxes (France and Sweeden, for example) arguably have the best health care and education. #
  • 13:08 @AhmadNassri As a rule of thumb, the lower the taxes, the poorer the country. If you moved to Mexico, for example, you would save taxes. #
  • 13:11 Man, already 1PM, time for my afternoon nap. #unemployed #
  • 13:15 @AhmadNassri If you moved to Mars, your gross domestic product would be close to zero. So in fact you would be the poorest country. #
  • 13:27 Stupid iPho ne twitpic.com/yo5wd RT @colinlefevre: [...] favourite [...]TV ever: bit.ly/54VqPN #
  • 13:30 Is Vancouver Olympics-worthy? RT @vchan: not in service bus is now picking up random stranded people like me #
  • 13:39 @Radio_Canada Jacmel est au sud-ouest de Port-au-Prince, non pas au sud-est. Vous êtes sure ques les deux routes sont coupée? #
  • 14:16 Solution to iTunes not opening in Windows 7. Turn OFF computer, then turn back on. Restart doesn't fix it. You have to shut down. #
  • 14:23 @heatheranne Best time to call government is Thursday or Friday. Absolute worst time is Monday. (people accumulate questions over weekend) #
  • 14:26 @AhmadNassri Admitting "I don't know what I'm talking about" was a brave move, but not if you want to win. :-) #
  • 14:32 @AhmadNassri If we debate software programming, you will quickly realize I don't know what I'm talking about. :-) #
  • 14:54 imho, "60 Minutes" went a tad "Mr. Skin" in the Penelope Cruz "report" last night (mentioning her nudity at 16 in Jamón, Jamón). #< /li>
  • 15:01 ... yes, I just Googled it. Not her best topless work. Abre los ojos , at 19, is the win. #
  • 15:08 ... My previous tweet was inaccurate. Penelope Cruz was in her early twenties when she filmed Abre los ojos (Open Your eyes). #
  • 15:10 Abre los ojos (Open Your Eyes) was remade as Vanilla Sky with the same topless scene with the same, but older, Penelope Cruz. Now you know. #
  • 15:19 @colinlefevre Why is spending money in Haiti wrong? By the way, the north of Haiti was not affected by the earthquake. People need to work. #
  • 15:22 Cruise ship tourism is exactly what Haiti n eeds MORE of. The ships bring their own food and water. The tourists bring their money. #
  • 15:42 The Canadian navy is currently shipping from Halifax to j.mp/Jacmel-Haiti , I'm less jealous after reading that web site. #
  • 15:58 @colinlefevre By your logic, if there was a disaster in Toronto, folks should stop visiting New Brunswick.Northern Haiti is not Port-au-P ! #
  • 16:04 @colinlefevre You are telling your fellow Canadians to stop visiting a resource poor country desperate for $. Think before you tweet! #
  • 18:38 Will this affect Gary Unmarried and Old Christine? RT @nytimes Obama to Deliver State of the Union Address Jan. 27 bit.ly/5drI0T #
  • 19:46 Pulled out of the ruble 5 days after earthquake (NBC News). Incredible. #
  • 00:25 "You are not entitled to benefit". 4.5 months after being fired, I finally got this letter from EI with no explanation. #
  • 00:51 On the plus side, had I known earlier I was not qualifying for EI, I would have gone on a long trip and now I would be poorer. #
  • 00:55 The moral is save, save, save. You can lose your job at any time and nobody will help you. #
  • 03:5 1 Why the Hell would Haiti reimburse its debt? Debt repayment while getting foreign aid makes no sense. Lemonde.fr: bit.ly/detteHaiti #
  • 03:53 Pourquoi est-ce que Haïti rembourserait sa dette alors qu'elle reçoit de l'aide extérieure simplement pour survive? bit.ly/detteHaiti #
  • 04:00 La priorité devrait être une route de qualité entre Port-au-Prince et Saint-Domingue. Un jour, la victime sera Saint-Domingue. #
