On Privatizing Poop And Naked Ladies On Vancouver Rooftops

by Sean Orr | Cross Border Coppers: American Cops Don’t Belong in Canada. Stand your ground! Oh, wow. That was a really unfortunate turn of phrase, but you know what I mean.

Security theatre: Via Rail mulls tighter security after alleged terror plot. I don’t really see how this is a big deal, but people certainly feel concerned that this might be the end of all of our freedoms.

Bad boy, bad boy, watcha gonna do when they come for you: Former star of Mantracker shot by RCMP. OK, usually I side with the victim whenever the police shoot an unarmed man, but you gotta think those cops were just like “should we give him a head start, follow him into the bush and look for tracks and trampled shrubs and stuff or should we just shoot him a bunch of times instead”?

Bedroom community: Live Music and Development: A Double Standard of Noise Pollution in Vancouver. Oh hey look, The Mainlander targets City Hall and developers for once.

Reasonable Doubt: The thought police are among us. I only put this article here because the part about the nude girl sunbathing is personally relevant to me because I was there (see above). Bonus: I saw Jason Schwartzman and I told him I could recite every line from Rushmore and he gave me a hug. True Story.

Prude Parade! Huffington Post writer Mark Hasiuk: Vancouver Pride Parade Numbers Just Don’t Add Up. Yeah, but who’s counting? Oh right, nobody. Just you and some former math teacher from a Christian school in Surrey.

Symphony of Flushing Heads: Vancouver beach water quality gets poopy grade. Plus eight other things you didn’t know about our water. So wait, are Fraser Institute doing this research so they can make a push to privatize it or what?

Group of separatists hope to create new Province of Vancouver Island. I think we’ve all wished – for a long time now – that Victoria would just mind its own business.

A delicate balance. In Vancouver’s Downtown Eastside, new housing endangers historic buildings.
