Tea & Two Slices: On Headlines For Harper And New Restaurants Dashing Our Dreams

February 1, 2012 

by Sean Orr | Stephen Harper is ‘starving the beast’. God damn, why does every headline about the Prime Minister read like sexual innuendo?

Harpernomics: Attawapiskat third-party manager “sitting on” funds for new houses. Yeah, I got something he can sit on. See what i mean?

Give them enough rope… Tory senator’s idea: Give each murderer a rope inside their prison cell. That’s funny, that’s also how you kill a senator’s career.

Ferry Commissioners recommendations will take time and money. That’s OK, ferry passengers are used to waiting. Zing.

We want all the amenities the area has to offer, just not that one. Restaurant plan dashes homeowner’s neighbourhood dream. The site of an old brewery, eventually redeveloped so that people like Brenda Racanelli could move in and complain about a proposed brewery. Now that is Vancouverism.

Council seeks new direction in ousting of Vancouver’s chief planner. I can just hear the foam collecting in Klassen‘s pasty mouth. Ooooh, ‘what does it all mean? Let’s speculate’. Let’s not.

Truth dig: Income gap widened when Campbell was premier: economist. Which is why he was rewarded with a trip to the Bilderberg Conference.

Not sure why I find this hilarious: Longboarders object to increased fines, confiscation in proposed North Van bylaw. They just look so bummed!

Riot victim calls for accountability. OK, let’s be clear. This was a personal choice, albeit an incredibly brave one. The Riot Act had long been read. I found myself in a similar situation after trying to protect some Cars2Go. The crowd behind me yelled, “he’s a good guy” and the cop raised his baton and said “I don’t know who’s good and who’s bad – just get out of here”. So I did. I went home.

This is relevant to my interests: Sedins meet Drake.

Bonus: Urban Planet: Urban Highway Removal.

    Regarding “Restaurant Plan Dashes Dreams” article, what the hell is wrong with these people? Why do they move into a central area of the city and then complain its not quiet and suburban? That’s what the suburbs are for people, stay there!
