February, 2014:

If Peter Mansbridge or Jian Ghomeshi…

… were rabid cheerleader against the oil sands or any other conservative darling, you can bet that there asses would be on the line!

But Rex Murphy can exult in the virtues of the massive western projects all he wants and with impertinence without fear of reprisal.

He can take money from the oil sand players for speaker fees and then go on public airways denouncing those who stand in the way of his version of “renewing Confederation”.

I am not completely anti-oil-sands. I think they could and should be managed better and that First nation rights should be respected. But Rex has stepped over the line. He really has become a better-dressed version of that other CBC buffoon (you know who I mean). He can also use and understand words with greater than two syllables.

CBC – give Rex his walking papers. And while you’re at it, make it a double.

Ten years and counting…

It’s an important anniversary for me today – on February 4, 2004, I smoked my last cigarette.

And that was one of the best decisions of my life.

It was very difficult. But I did it. And I haven’t become one of those rabid anti-smokers; even though I now find the smell absolutely disgusting. Smoking is a chemical addiction and like any dependency, it is very hard to break.

I know. I’ve been there.

Happy Anniversary to me!

He wasn’t perfect…

… but no one is.

Yet then PM Chrètien led by example back in 1993 when he came to power and significantly cut his Ministers’ budgets. 

Tired of the ballooning Ministerial budgets under Mulroney, he cut their Chiefs-of-staff and told them to rely more on the advice of public servants.

Not a bad move.

Would Harper do such a thing?

Nope.
