On Putting An End To Whale Humping And Evil Hipster Landlords

Forget class sizes, I’m concerned about the size of her crass: Premier’s joke falls flat with Penticton teachers.”It took them awhile to find us. We were here for three days. So I hope none of them are teaching geography’ Clark said, drawing a round of laughter and applause”. That’s almost as funny as a Premier who never earned a university degree talking about education.

B.C. teachers’ strike: parents to get $40 a day if strike continues. Oh, I get it. So teachers are really just glorified babysitters. That’s good to know.

In Vancouver, race undercuts the discussion on real estate affordability. Any movement that forgets about class is a bowel movement. Quote of the decade by Sid Chow Tan: “Bob Rennie standing up for the Chinese community? What Chinese community? Real estate investors and landowners. That’s the community he’s standing up for.”

Tent city occupants have law on their side. Did the Vancouver Sun really just post an opinion piece by Harsha Walia? Is it really that hot out?

Occupier given city-paid phone. Wait, who are the occupiers again?

Troubled waters: Nuclear radiation found in B.C. may pose health concerns. Concerning to be sure, but the biggest concern is the following: “Recent federal government cutbacks have placed a greater burden of testing and monitoring for aquatic impacts on academics, non-governmental organizations and even private citizens”. I spent all my money on a geiger counter. Now I can’t afford to eat.

I really wish I could take a side on this whole Whales in Captivity thing. This might make it easier: Aquarium CEO likens transfer of Bjossa to trading Wayne Gretzky. That is, of course, if Wayne Gretzky was held captive inside the LA Kings dressing room and then died two years later instead of, you know, retiring as a millionaire.

But wait, he’s not done yet: Park Board Picks a Fight With Mother Nature. “For the Park Board to stop whales and dolphins from doing what comes naturally is like telling Park Board commissioners not to have sex, ever. It’s unnatural”. Wait, artificial insemination is natural?
