TEA & TWO SLICES: On Mayday Marching And Buying The Front Page In Desparation

by Sean Orr | Well, when you can no longer buy the media, just buy the front page! Front-page B.C. Liberal election ad calling Christy Clark the ‘comeback kid’ an ‘illusion’: NDP leader Adrian Dix. Yup, a fake front page for a fake premier…

The Not Working At All party: No political party for 100,000 people facing homelessness in B.C.. Wherein Rabble examines the gamut of political parties in BC from NDP to Liberal. Seriously, I dare you to look at the Green Party platform, like once.

This election stuff is soooo gay: Nine openly gay candidates running in BC election. Let’s just hope we are spared the Tim Tebow-style “proud to be straight” knee-jerk reaction.

Death by a thousand cuts: Students protest Capilano University arts program cuts. Although in a way it’s probably the most a college has ever done to actually prepare students for the real world.

M’Aidez: See you at the Vancouver Mayday Anti-Capitalist March. Yup, I’m one reminding you that food and beverage servers have their own special minimum wage that is lower than everyone else’s. So take your co-optation of a proud working class tradition elsewhere. Might I suggest Goldman Sachs?

Or maybe the offices of The Fraser Institute: First Nations reserves: The land private property forgot. Halleleujah, the free market is here to save us from our colonial past!

Hundreds complain about Vancouver parking officers. The not so delicate art of parking?

Bonus: “Whom we play tonight hardly matters”. Nabokov wins one for the Islanders.

  1. Sean when are you going to spread the word about the “true anarchists” going through Gastown with torches in support of the anti-gentrified as told in the Gastown Gazette??

  2. According to the Gazette it happened May1 but never saw it on the news or in the paper so I dunno.

  3. I saw the piece. It was a little hysterical. It looked to me like just a bunch of black bloc wannabes skipping out of their first year Politics class. Same shit, same kids, different day. Welcome to Vancouver.
