TEA & TWO SLICES: On Abbotsford’s Tight Ends & The Shape Of Parliaments To Come

by Sean Orr | The bore from the floor no more: BC Premier Clark to replace throne speech with radio appearance. To be co-hosted by former radio pal and definite non-racist Bruce Allen with guest appearances by The Odds and introducing The Leg’s new house band, “The Rockpile”.

The Boomers Revolt: Pension protest: Seniors, labour activists occupy 20 Ontario Tory MP offices. ‘We’re here, we haven’t had a nap, and we’re not leaving until Matlock is on”.

Logan’s Rent: Elderly Vancouver tenants protest proposed 45 per cent rent hike. I just can’t picture myself ever growing old.

Deja View: Peter Simpson’s love/hate relationship with Mayor Gregor Robertson’s housing affordability task force. “Although I applaud the mayor’s commitment to addressing this critical issue, I can’t help but reflect on the 1993 movie, Groundhog Day…” It’s also the year federal transfer payments stopped and crack cocaine was introduced.

The shape of NIMBY to come: Vancouver resident wants Shoppers to adopt Main Street feel. ‘New drugstore close to Heritage Hall, eclectic clothing stores’.

Early front-runner in the Headline of the Year competition: Man charged for throwing ball at young teen’s head. In a dangerous, precedent-setting decision, all games of father-and-son catch are now illegal.

Valley Girls: Lingerie football franchise scores touchdown in Abbotsford. Bringing whole new meaning to the position of Tight End.

I Saw You: I Believe In Sherlock Homles. It’s elementary.

Two headlines, right next to each other in order of most read on The Province news index: Surrey grow-ops drop by nearly 82 per cent and Victim of targeted shooting in Surrey identified. Thank you and goodnight.

Bonus: Varley’s Vancouver: Discovering the city’s artistic heart in Frederick Varley’s past.
