Nice guy, that Jason Kenney, our Immigration Minister, who says he isn’t sorry to see Marc Emery extradited to the United States. Emery is starting a five-year prison term for shipping marijuana seeds to Americans. Seeds. Gotta love those tough-on-crime Conservatives. Their leader, meanwhile, Mr. Harper, appoints sports tycoon David Braley to the Senate. Braley owns both the B-C Lions and Toronto Argos and was the biggest single donor to Harper’s 2004 Conservative party leadership campaign. Harper has appointed 33 Conservatives to the Senate in the past 18 months.
Cyclist Floyd Landis finally comes clean, says he was doping for years and alleges former teamate Lance Armstrong was also doping. Gee, you think so? And those muscles Tiger Woods developed overnight? Wonder where they came from?
It was beautiful watching the Habs put it to the Flyers last night but painful watching Russia trounce Canada at the worlds. Go Germany Go!

If Jim Watson can’t find the time to attend mayoralty debates then he shouldn’t be running. There was a debate last night in Kanata. Watson wasn’t there. Was at a Polish community event instead. Says he was booked far in advance for the Polish event, but also prefers not to take part in a debate before all the other candidates are declared. (O’Brien hasn’t announced his intentions yet.) I don’t care, he should be there, and the fact he wasn’t is a snub, not only to the 50 people who turned out, but to of all us.

It wasn’t that long ago Premier McGuinty was assuring us the negative affects of the HST would be offset by businesess passing along their tax breaks to the consumer.
Too bad he doesn’t practice what he preaches.
The LCBO, government run, a monopoly, makes zillions. Great chance for McGuinty to lead by example and reduce prices.
Not gonna happen.
The government says - ready for this – that cutting the price would lead to more alcohol consumption! Something about ‘ social responsiblity’.
Now I’m definitely heading out to buy a bottle.
Seriously, they expect business owners to do what they won’t do themselves.
What a joke!
I have a suggestion for McGuinty: start telling the truth!

Every day we are being told to tighten our belts. What about the politicians? It’s a different world, it seems. Different indeed. In a rare act of unity, MPs from all four political parties have joined forced to ensure the details of their secret 540 million dollar budget never see the light of the day.
What are they hiding? Wasn’t Harper supposed to be all about ‘ accountability ‘? Do they forget it’s OUR money they are spending? Do they even care?!?!
Nine MP’s sit on the Board of Internal Economy. They run the clandestine budget for MPs and senators. They are Roger Cuzner, Libby Davies, Jacques Gourde, Michel Guimond, Jay Hill, Peter Milliken, Gordon O’Connor, Joe Preston, Marcel Proulx. I hope each and every one of them gets turfed in the next election. Seriously. This air of entitlement makes me sick.
