Speaking of bad dreams: Promises vs. ‘political speeches:’ Tories’ honesty questioned on support for injured veterans. Important stuff, but does this have to be your opening line? “It was a cross-country battle for injured military veterans on Wednesday” (emphasis mine).

The Province (completely missing the point to the surprise of nobody) writes: “…as of Wednesday afternoon, 612 people had signed the petition. It was unknown how many of the signatories were Hipsters…” [sic]
But perhaps more damning than a tongue-in-cheek counter-petition are some cold, hard, stats: Vancouver police crime stats contradict Yaletown homeless shelter foes. Go figure.
A totally different police stat:
The rent is too damn high not damn high enough: Housing minister warns of possible hikes under rent-control system. Whoa, whoa, whoa – wait a second now! There are rent controls?

Snakes on a plain bagel: Men Throw Snake At Tim Hortons Worker Over Diced Onions.
Grinch caught on camera stealing Christmas decoration. OK, but the grinch hated Christmas and wanted to ruin it for everyone in Whoville because he had a black heart. This guy probably just wanted some black tar heroin. Big difference.
