Premier Danielle Smith says the government's proposed sovereignty act would not give the provincial cabinet unchecked powers to rewrite laws, while critics say the premier's signature bill would do just that. "It gives unprecedented ability to a brand new premier to overwhelm and sidestep the legislative assembly of this province and it is an attack on the democratic rights of Albertans, and through that, an attack on the stability of our economy," NDP Leader Rachel Notley said on her way into t
WASHINGTON (AP) — The seditious conspiracy convictions of Oath Keepers founder Stewart Rhodes and another leader in the far-right extremist group show that jurors are willing to hold accountable not just the rioters who stormed the U.S. Capitol on Jan. 6, 2021, but those who schemed to subvert the 2020 election. Tuesday's verdict, while not a total win for the Justice Department, gives momentum to investigators just as the newly named special counsel ramps up his probe into key aspects of the in

Welcome to our Collector Card Game Break. A little late to the game with opening The Brothers War in celebration of MTG 30th Anniversary. Oh Hasbro, what are you doing to our game. I have said this on a few occasions but I am thinking the game will cease to exist from a manufacturer standpoint, but may continue to exist on the secondary market similar to how starcraft took on a life of its own, with the die hard fans continue to play. I think with all the cards that's out there, there's definitely an ability to do this. I mean 30 years worth of cards right? Anyways, we're opening 2 set and 2 collectors boosters just to give our audience a sense of what a casual collector/player can expect. The best thing about the collector boosters.....the Transformers!! Some of my facts are definitely incorrect (ie. quicksilver is not from Tempest but rather Urza's Legacy). Collector Packs cost about $35 CAD, and Set boosters were about $5 Well I hope you like the content. Let me know what you think about the set, about the cross over and about the debacle that is Hasbro Have a great week!
