Of course the National Post has a sponsor just like the Wall Street
Journal does, ie the advertisers and subscribers to the newspaper, plus
of course the publisher. The Post is the only national conservative
newspaper in Canada. While frequently institutions are simply "fronts"
for companies like ExxonMobil I think that too frequently we write off
whole organizations in that manner.

substantially affect the climate of a third to half the continent should
be a plus for global warming acceptance as it helps explain local anomalies.
