by Sean Orr | Two Canadians involved in Algerian terrorism attack. “How could anyone from this quiet, comfortable, middle-class neighbourhood end up waging jihad”? Holy shit!

A cheap holiday in someone else’s misery: Hunger striker “Homeless Dave” brings Downtown Eastside demands to Vancouver City Hall. I hate to be cynical (even though it’s sort of my mandate), but what if Homeless Dave was given a home? Would he be all like, “Oh snap! See ya guys!

A cheap nightmare in someone else’s holiday: Granville: regular street by day, low-rent Mardi Gras by night accompanied by police, ambulances, clean-up crews. Is this is good idea?. If you think the above two links are not related I’ll see your stupor and raise you a Balmoral, Savoy, Pantages, Blinding Light, Smiling Buddha, Niagara, Pig and Whistle, Brickyard, Town Pump, Columbia, and The Pic.

Hot and Cold: British Columbia’s Carbon Tax Freeze “Not Cool” Says ForestEthics Advocacy. Keep in mind that this is the same government that unfroze tuition fees and froze minimum wage. So what do we do? Freeze the Liberals and unfreeze the NDP or what?
Shine a light: Sunshine Listing the Fraser Institute. Wow, please keep coming up with amazing, poetic headlines like that. Thanks.
