by Sean Orr | The Vancouver Sun’s case for banning masks: Guest editorial: Protesters who cover their faces deserve arrest. Once again, notice the image that the Vancouver Sun has chosen (the Guy Fawkes mask was adopted by the Anonymous movement, a peaceful group). Note also how they employ the word “protesters”. I don’t know if the paper is guilty of a Freudian Slip or a rotten lie here, but the truth is that the proposed law is about rioters, not protestors (I’ve been to a whole lot of protests in my time, but only once have I heard the Riot Act being read, and it was after a hockey game).
My case for banning masks: Two arrested during G20 summit were police: watchdog.
Dad still doesn’t get it: Eco-zealots’ hyperbole leaves me green-faced, wherein an anti-environmentalist consults an environmental group to discredit environmentalists. The headline should be: Grrr. I’m dumb, old, and angry. And I vote.
So the Federal Government accidentally funded something really worthwhile that is working, but now they don’t want to fund it anymore: Future uncertain for Bosman Hotel Community
Meanwhile, The Province runs a truly bizarre smear piece on The Dugout, a volunteer-run food dispensary on the DTES. Really? Fuck off and go do some real investigating, like how the Fraser Institute accepts charity.
Leave the micro-politics of a soup kitchen for trolls like Greg Renouf: Does Irwin Oostinde Run SadoMasochist Sex Parties At The W2 Media Centre? Oh god, Greg. Do grow up. Do you actually know what an S&M party looks like? Do I have to Google that for you?
Politics are boring because you just compared them to hockey and reality TV: Thrust and parry of Hansard a limp affair indeed. To quote the kid in the G.I. Joe parody, “Dude, I got no idea what you’re on about”.
Langley responds: Langley Township ‘not District 12’. Cool comeback, bro.
