Spotted by a sharp-eyed reader: good news and bad

The good news for Liberals: they have a way to make fun of that new CPC ad. The bad news for Liberals: that old Manitoba campaign ad worked – my very good friend Hugh (sadly) lost. ... Read More

The new Dipper and Tory and Grit ads (updated thrice)

The new Dipper and Tory ads (updated twice)

The former ignores Trudeau, the other is mainly about him.  One tries to be positive, the other is less preoccupied with all that.  Both, however, strongly suggest the election campaign is underway. First, Team Orange:   It’s not bad, but... Read More

The Inexpensive Computer Comes With Expensive Shipping Option Only

When I read about the $9 computer on Crash Bang Labs’ Facebook page, I was ready to help kick start that CHIP. But I got to the payment screen when the shipping amount came up. How much could it cost... Read More

When You’ve Lost The Prison Guards…

…or at least their union….well. I don’t know what happens.  But this surely can’t be good news for the Harper gov.:KITCHENER, ON, May 22, 2015 /CNW Telbec/ – Dozens of correctional officers working in Ontario penitentiaries who are affiliated with... Read More

Canada Post: for a few bucks, we’ll help promote racism, anti-Semitism and pedophilia

That’s right, pedophilia. In their April issue, Sears and his fellow neo-Nazis published an article that made light of the sexual abuse of children. By any reasonable standard, that’s a crime. Why isn’t Canada Post – or the government that... Read More

Rachel Notley Does A Smart Thing

No real budget until fall.  Until after the federal election, Alberta treads water.  And the federal NDP takes no heat for any unpopular measures said budget might contain.  The politics of it can be criticized.  Nevertheless its pretty clever. ... Read More
