Well at least they don’t seem to get these creepy websites to work. So I guess that’s a positive.


The failed gun registry was only one of CGI’s many Canadian failures, which included canceled contracts to build health care databases in the provinces of Ontario and New Brunswick.

The question to ask is ,Where is the 640 million dollars. This pos did not cost but a fraction of that. Who owns the Company, why wasn't bids taken?

The ever so polite Canadians can teach us all a lesson. - Their gun control registry was the greatest example of passive resistance in the history of the planet, sorry Mr. Gandhi you are an also ran. - When asked to register their long guns the Canadians collectively said "bite me"
