February, 2015:

I am so, so proud of my neighbour!

Some call her Crystal. Others know her as “Snowflake”.

But in the highlands and lowlands of South-east Ottawa, she is known as a dedicated volunteer, a good and honest friend, but most of all, a fan of the Detroit Red Wings.

Which is why I was shocked to see her sudden and complete buy-in of all things Toronto Maple Leaf. She has realised that Canada’s Team – while currently experiencing some difficulties- is the purest way to express one’s Canadian identity.

Some in the neighbourhood will be shocked. Some will be dismayed. But those of us who know her well celebrate this epiphany and will support her through her conversion.

I hear through friends that a website dedicated to her devotion to the TMHC is in the works and will be made public shortly! I for one can’t wait!!!!

Sun TV News is dead?

Dead? Really dead?

Will Ezra have to go back to being a cashier at a 7-11 in Laval? That reallly is the extent of his c.v., no?

Sun News is about to sign off, permanently. CBC News has learned that the cable news television channel will shut down early tomorrow.

The network began broadcasting in 2011, launching a right-of-centre programming schedule.

It has had a constant challenge attracting viewers. (my note – because it SUCKED AT DOING ITS JOB!)

Its supporters blamed the CRTC for not giving it the same access enjoyed by news channels operated by CBC and CTV.

Film at 11. Complete with heavy whining.

Another rat jumps the Harper ship…

Lots of pols and pundits are falling all over themselves lauding the soon-to-be-ex CPC attack dog.

I won’t do that.

Don’t let the screen door hit you on the ass on your way out, Johno. Glad to see you go. Go visit Deano in Peterborough. He cries a lot and could use a broad shoulder.

The one redeeming quality about the guy was that is at least borderline socially progressive – and that’s a lot more than one can say for 95% of that caucus on incompetents.

Top five reasons why John Baird is running from the ReformCons:

1. Harper wanted to put one of his other immensely qualified caucus members on the file. Or, as Stephen Lautens puts it:

Stephen Lautens Stephen Lautens

Now the question is what giant of international affairs will fill Baird’s shoes? Or which Harper MP has a valid passport? #cdnpoli

2. Fat Tony C has put a price on his head for suggesting that the Orrville gazebo should be relocated to the Nepean SportsPlex.

3. He received a plum job offer from Nigel Wright. Word on the street is that Nigel pays well.

4. Despite outward appearances, John and Vlad Putin are really good buds. My sources tell me that they were spotted hunting Bengal Tigers together last Fall and enjoyed a bottle of vodka and several helpings of borscht. Politics makes strange bedfellows.

5. Finally, the man is smart enough to know that he’s on a sinking ship and going out while on top is better than suffering the humiliation of seeing your party reduced to a rump on election night.
