E Day à Montréal!

Sunday, November 3rd, 2013

Thinking of my bro-in-law this afternoon as the polls close in about 5 hours across Quebec.

It’s municipal election time and Steve Shanahan will make a GREAT city Councillor! As well, Mélanie Joly will make an awesome Mayor!

What a nice change from old white guys that will be.

My wife just left Ottawa to join Steve and the team for what will sure-to-be a VICTORY party tonight. I wish I could be there with them but (sigh) have an early morning meeting that I couldn’t get out of….

Bonne chance!!!

… I think I’ll prorogue work!

Thanks Prime Minister Harper! Way to show leadership and initiative! I am taking your lead and proroguing until October.

And like you Parliamentarians, I’ll continue to be paid, right?

Resolutions for 2013…

Monday, December 31st, 2012

… Before I have a second glass of Pinot Noir…

– not be as critical of our Dear Leader and encourage all my friends to cut he and his Cabinet some slack. They’re trying really darned hard

– not ridicule Tea Baggers and their ilk who are found south of the border. They think differently from me, but that’s OK.

– accept that religious arm-flappers may have a point. Hey! What do I know! Maybe there is a big bearded dude in the sky and and old guy gathered up all the animals in a storm (except for the unicorns)

– understand that guns have a place the 21st century America. And perhaps we in Canada should have one of those Second Amendment things

– add Tim Hudak as a friend on Facebook

– and Rob Ford too

– swear off red wine, beer and single malt scotch forever

– give up meat

Wait.

Ah.

It’s JANUARY 1 and not APRIL 1!

Sorry.

Happy New Year!
