TEA & TWO SLICES: On Kits Pool Flooding, Killer Bridges, And Dumbass Gun Decisions

December 22, 2012 

by Sean Orr | This won’t make the cover of The Province: Kits pool floods. No, the world didn’t end last night. It will end with a wimper not a bang. Flooding will just be a new normal thing that happens every spring and winter. Deal with it.

Also not in the news: A message to the Prime Minister. A giant middle finger made of Indians! And as Chief Spence continues her huger strike, the PM jokes about bacon on Twitter. What a swine.

Meanwhile, in light of the tragedy in Newtown (and our own in Surrey yesterday), Canadian Gun Show Rules Axed By Conservatives. Some self-awareness wouldn’t hurt, guys.

Oh, the beautiful, beautiful irony. A monster bridge made on the cusp of Peak Oil and irreversible climate change shuts down because its makers forgot that Canada was an Arctic nation. Oh well, at least it apologised


Happy Birthday Lee Matasi. Fundraiser started at midnight.

Stop dumping: Illegal Dumping Is Costing Canadian Taxpayers. Actually, I got half my furniture from the alley, so in fact do not stop dumping.

Breaking Bad Canada. Har har.

Gift ideas for the Vancouver-loving public space aficionado. Hint hint.
