TEA & TWO SLICES | On The Shadenfreude Cruise And Local Media Going To The Dogs
by Sean Orr | Relax, Sean. It’s satire! Toronto really is superior to Vancouver. “Not everyone in Toronto is stoned all the time. They’re far more likely to be drunk”. Indeed, and Rob Ford leads by example.
That being said, Toronto does appear to have the only decent newspaper in the country: Tom Mulcair is wrong to take taxes off the table. A de facto admission of defeat at the hands of corporatism. I’m sure one meeting with the insufferable Maureen Bader would make him change his mind…
Audit finds changes, deletions in Senator Wallin’s calendar. It is unknown whether or not she hid the expenses in her hair.
Can’t we all just get along? Activists, council must think collaboratively. As much as I think protesting restaurants is silly (ahem, there are 96 units of housing planned directly across from Cuchillo), I also think it’s deceitful to suggest that activists are not interested in collaborating with council. A delay of two years in a neighbourhood planning process is a healthy sign. Perhaps the Vancouver Sun’s Bob Ransford is thinking of another c-word: capitulation.
Distraught man outside Art Gallery shot by police with bean bag projectile. That’s weird, because I have my shirt off and I’m sitting on a bean bag chair.
With the future of print journalism in doubt, the front of The Province newspaper today features a dog wearing a “Free Mark Emery” T-shirt. Yup, somebody was actually paid for that.
Schadenfreude of the day: Vancouver-bound cruise ship stuck in Alaska.
Local interest: Hoarder house full of records. That’s probably too many records.
