It is hardly fair..

...That I have to wait until 2008 until new Battlestar Galactica episodes.

Doesn't it seem inequitable..

...that the only way to get more women into parliament is to allow them to by-pass the traditional nomination process.

I have concerns with this approach by any party, but surely Martha Hall-Findlay doesn't need any help winning a nomination.

Seeing Green....

Without a viable plan, this has boondoggle written all over it.

All the green we will be seeing is our own money flowing back to the provinces.

Mirror, mirror on the web....

Not a bad idea.

Given the grief the MSM media gives the CPC when one candidate in some obscure riding that we have absolutley no hope of winning posts some complaint about how the central party did not answer his request to host a $2000 per plate dinner, I think this is a good idea.

Oh, I meant to say, it is good that we are all playing from the same song book.



In response to my half-in-jest post yesterday, Joan Tintor droppped by and offered this comment:

And apparently, only readers are supposed to "ask why." In none of its recent
stories on single mothers, does the Star "ask why" the father is not around.

Joan has a great post on the hypocrisy of The Star up. Read it here. And don't for get to ask Why?

Never Stop Asking Why

The marketing genius who came up with the Toronto Star's most recent marketing campaign obviously doesn't have a three year old.

Unsolicited advice for the John Tory team...

...despite the current Premier's best efforts, things like this keep coming back to remind everyone that he is a big fat liar who was willing to say anything to get elected and hope that everyone forgot by 2007.

While the "Different Kind of Leader" campaign is nice, warm and fuzzy, wouldn't it make more sense to have everyone of those "endorsements" end with "John Tory, he does what he says he would do." or something a little less wordy, maybe, "John Tory, Promise Made, Promise Kept."

For example:

His time as CFL commissioner - endorsement from players and owners - John said he would do such and such, and he did. He made a promise and he kept it. John Tory is a guy we can trust.

Grab someone from all the charities he has fundraised for - John set a realistic goal, he beat hat goal. Sensible planning allowed John to keep his word. John Torry is the sort of leader we need, an honest leader.

Even his time as leader - After the 2003 election, the Provincial Conservatives were 10 Million in debt. John promised that we would enter the next campaign debt free. He beat that target by 10 months. John Tory, Promise Made, Promise Kept.

Anyways, smarter people than I could make this work, but for crying out loud, stop the fuzzy, warm, cuddly stuff. It isn't letting you define Dalton McGuinty and makes it harder to define John.

If the first half of this year, all everyone hears is how John Tory keeps his word, when we finally release some sort of platform, then people will realize he is serious.

And from the land of "Quit yer bellyaching"

...this little tidbit that just goes to prove that if Stephen Harper were to walk on water, the headline would be "PM Can't Swim."


From the land of "Well No D'uh?"

...this little tidbit from one of the experts.

I particularly like this comment:

"It's been on the way (an election) in a sense since the Conservatives won their
minority government. The situation is unstable," Denis told CTV Newsnet.

I only wish that I had gone to U of O so that I could have gained access to these kind of insider insights.


Hey buddy...

...your fifteen minutes ended years ago.

Gentlemen...(and lady)...

...start your engines!

The liberal leadership race has started.

Not going to take long for the knives to come out after Dion suffers humiliation at the polls this spring.


Hard to be tolerant...

...of different cultures when you read something like this.

Climate Change?!?

So it seems that not everyone has signed off on the "catastrophe" of global warming, including those who were concerned in the first place.

If anyone who still believes we should be following Kyoto, then I suggest reading Lorrie Goldstein's articles and let me know if you still think committing Canada to this ridiculous treaty is worthwhile.

For those who are going to jump down my throat about being a climate change denier or anti-environmentalist, I say again, let's fix the things we can fix now like smog and real pollution and worry about the carbon dioxide and water vapour once we can breath freely.


PS If the global temperature goes up by an average of 3 degrees, it means today would be -14 instead of -17 right now. Not losing any sleep at all over this.

Quebec Election is proving entertaining...

Fuddle-duddle has some serious concerns about Dumont in a coalition government.

But Bosclair thinks Dumount is a federalist.

I think Mario could pull a Bob Rae circa 1990 if he is careful.

This Quebec election is certainly the most interesting to watch in some time. I hope the PQ completely collapses. I hope Charest remains Premier. I had little hope of that 3 months ago.

I know its early...

...but what to you think about a Liberal-ADQ coalition government?

Good or bad for Federal Conservatives and Harper.

My thought is that it would be good. Harper would still reap the rewards of flexible federalism and the conservative tendencies for the ADQ supporters could be beneficial in the next federal election.
