Some one told me this weekend the couple will be on Rogers Television Monday night.
I always like Dianne and mind you that I don’t hate Bernard Lord but I’m afraid for his wife on this one.
Could she be caught in the crossfire from angry callers?
With the presence of his wife Dianne on his side/ Would this tune down the angry callers?
It was so bad the last time he was on Rogers Television that Bernard told the television audience in an ignorant way – Hey? You can be mad at me as much as you ant but I’m here till 2007!!! Either you like it or not!!!!!
Will she be like Hillary Clinton on 60 minutes?
Can Bernard wife save his political career?????
Should be very interesting?
During these past few weeks, I have been chatting with MLA’s, Party workers, bureaucrats and media workers asking of their views of what’s going to happen the next few weeks?
I would say that 95% of the people just don’t know!
Tanker could become a hero or a has been!
He left the Bernard Lord Government and showed the people in his riding that he truly cares about their issues.
Of course many would say that he should have follow that action two 2 years ago when the Miramichers protesters were in front of the Legislature.
Still? He’s the only MLA in power to face the protesters in front of the Legislature since Frank McKenna.
Of course Tanker must have took his pension into consideration?
I'm sure that the members of his family have a say about their future.
I’m certain that many are indeed worried about their big retirement check?
I’m surprised the Liberals and Tanker haven’t made a deal.
I saw Tanker Friday chatting with a couple of P.C. Mla’s outside of the Legislature.
Is that a sign of things to come for Tanker Malley?
Lets go back to Bernard Lord for a minute.
He’s been touring the Province last week with the Prime Minster of Canada.
He showed that New Brunswick has a good future with the Federal Government for the next few years.
It’s a honeymoon made in heaven but we all know that honeymoons do not last long.
New Brunswickers will soon forgot the little tour by Stephen and Bernard.
Therefore Bernard Lord has to move fast.
He must introduce a budget full of goodies and quickly call an election.
He’ll say - There you are New Brunswickers!!!! A beautiful budget and good connection in Ottawa!!!
What more do you want????
Elect me and all will be well in New Brunswick.
In my opinion? Knowing Bernard Lord’s pride?
I noticed he was in his office all weekend.
I say he will call an election on Tuesday.
As for Tanker? If he defeats the Government?
Will he be re-elected as an Independent?
I was praying that he would join the Liberal Party.
Sure is going to be interesting in New Brunswick Politics during these next few weeks!!!
During my six months protest, I had many people from Australia telling me there's a major problem with Ritalin in their country.
This proves it I guess!!!
But here in New Brunswick? It's no concern to Bernard Lord.
Child drugs linked to heart attack
Clara Pirani, Medical reporter
March 27, 2006
CHILDREN as young as five have suffered strokes, heart attacks, hallucinations and convulsions after taking drugs to treat attention deficit hyperactivity disorder.
Documents obtained by The Australian reveal that almost 400 serious adverse reactions have been reported to the Therapeutic Goods Administration, some involving children as young as three.
Cases include the sudden death of a seven-year-old, and a five-year-old who suffered a stroke after taking Ritalin. Children also experienced heart palpitations and shortness of breath after taking Dexamphetamine.
Others taking Ritalin or Dexamphetamine - the two most commonly used ADHD drugs - experienced hair loss, muscle spasms, severe abdominal pain, tremors, insomnia, severe weight loss, depression and paranoia.
Almost 60 of the adverse-reaction reports dating back to 1980, obtained under Freedom of Information laws, involved children under the age of 10.
The TGA has asked pharmaceutical companies to provide updated information about any cardiovascular side effects involving ADHD medication. "The TGA is currently reviewing this new information," a TGA spokeswoman said.
Prescriptions for Ritalin increased tenfold after the drug was listed on the Pharmaceutical Benefits Scheme in August last year, reducing the cost from $49 to $29.50, or $4.70 for concession card holders.
More than 5800 prescriptions were written for Ritalin in January this year, compared with 523 in August last year. Prescriptions for Dexamphetamine jumped from 96,000 a year to 232,000 in the 10 years to 2004-05.
The US Food and Drug Administration is reviewing 90 studies to determine whether ADHD drugs were linked to the deaths of 25 people, including 19 children, between 1999 and 2003.
The drugs were also associated with 54 cases of cardiovascular episodes, including heart attacks, strokes and serious heartbeat disturbances.
Last week, a panel of pediatric experts advising the FDA recommended new information about psychiatric and heart risks be added to the labels of ADHD drugs.
They declined to recommend the "black box" warning - the strongest for prescription drugs - which a different advisory panel endorsed last month.
The FDA will consider both panels' recommendations before making a final labelling decision.
While officials said there was no conclusive evidence that the medications caused psychiatric episodes or heart problems, they noted a "complete absence" of similar reports in children treated with placebos during trials of ADHD drugs.
A spokeswoman for Novartis Australia, which makes Ritalin, said warnings regarding adverse reactions were constantly reviewed. "We welcome the opportunity to work with the TGA to ensure the labelling is as accurate as possible," she said.
Melbourne psychologist Joe Tucci said some ADHD drugs had the potential to cause long-term side effects.
"There is certainly a small group of children who would benefit from ADHD drugs, but it's far fewer than the number of children who are currently being prescribed medication," he said.
Others warned that the number of adverse reactions may be much higher because the TGA excludes reports where the cause of side effects is "unclear". Shelley Wilkins, executive director of the Citizens Commission on Human Rights, which lobbies against the use of psychiatric medication on children, said many side effects were not reported.
"There is no mandatory reporting in Australia for adverse side-effects for psychiatric drugs," she said. "This needs to be rectified immediately so we can see the true extent of the damage being done."
Fremantle psychiatrist Lois Achimovich said doctors were prescribing medication too often, particularly in very young children.
"Any child behaviour that looks abnormal is being diagnosed as ADHD and drugs are prescribed. They should not be used in children that young."
Doug was a very good guy at the Legislature.
Like a lot of Commissionaires? I would talk with them for hours during my protest.
I haven't saw him for a long time and it was nice to see him again.
He no longer works at the Legislature.
We need New Brunswickers working in our People's House and not Quebecers!!!!
WHEN I SAID, "MY FOOT IS SLIPPING," YOUR LOVE, O LORD
SUPPORTED ME. WHEN ANXIETY WAS GREAT WITHIN ME,
YOUR CONSOLATION BROUGHT JOY TO MY SOUL.
( PSALM 94:18-19 *NIV )
Whenever life throws you a curve, and you feel anxiety
build up within, always turn to Jesus. For you may always;
CAST ALL YOUR ANXIETY ON HIM FOR HE CARES FOR
YOU. ( 1 PETER 5:7 )
After all Jesus Christ said; "DO NOT LET YOUR HEARTS
BE TROUBLED. TRUST IN GOD; TRUST ALSO IN ME."
( JOHN 14:1 ) Therefore, "Let Not Your Heart Be Troubled."
Let not your heart be troubled,
Give your worries and cares to Me.
I am your Heavenly Father
Who suffered and died for thee.
There are times throughout your Earthly life
When you are filled with doubts and fear.
Always come to Me in prayer
And know that I am near.
The love I have for you, dear child,
Can never be bought or measured.
It's a gift I freely give to you.
It is My most precious treasure.
When sorrow or pain come your way
And life seems to be unfair,
Let not your heart be troubled...
Just come to Me in prayer.
Poet: Shirley Hile Powell
With My Love & Prayers,
your servant Allen
