TEA & TWO SLICES: On Harper’s History & Getting Hysterical About Junior Anarchists

May 3, 2013.

by Sean Orr | Canadian history comes under Conservative review in Parliament. As it happens, John A. Macdonald was a lumberjack who single handedly defeated the Nazis at the battle of 1812. True story!

Voters should be concerned about Adrian Dix’s flip-flops. Wherein Jordan Bateman conveniently omits that he is the president of Rich Coleman’s Fort Langley-Aldergrove riding. Alas, witness the attack-ad morality of conservatives and the Liberal platform mentioning the NDP more than it does First Nations. They are obsessed! Time to fight back?

Tweet of the Day c/o Steve Burgess:

Oh noes, the little anarchists are coming! Hide yo children! Hide yo wife! Mayor Robertson: Soon There Will Be Blood. I was waiting for them to stop by L’Abattoir. I made a helpful sign and everything.

Meanwhile, the VPD put out an APB for UBC Lab Animal protestor, Occupy Protestor, Pidgin protestor Robyn Pickell. Psst! Try looking inside a dumpster off Commercial Drive.

Round two, fight! Vancouver Not Vegas issues court challenge to Pavco and Paragon BC Place casino plan. Oh, just leave the poor slot machines alone!

Poetry is Dead: Mental Health: Inside/Out – Letter from the Editors.

Local restaurant owner speaks out on service, tipping, and server wages. One thing that I haven’t seen mentioned is that the server wage is a de facto admission by the government that you no longer have to declare your tips as income.

    Isn’t it enough disclosure that you’re a right wing crack with “B.C. director of the Canadian Taxpayers Federation”?

    Also a note for Robyn Pickell. In the good old days protestors actually chained themselves to inanimate objects for causes they believed in; not padlock and run.

    Perhaps, but technically nothing to do with the election. A dude writing for the Province without telling us he is a riding president is conflict of interest.

    I feel bad for the servers, but not any of those goddamn cooks raking in the cash, fuck those guys.

    “Police have confirmed the 25-year old, accused of trying to chain and lock the front doors of the Pidgin Restaurant, was picked up yesterday afternoon on Commercial Drive.

    She’s been charged with mischief and made a brief court appearance this morning.”

    Unknown if she was located inside a dumpster at the time.
