by Sean Orr | Passing a law to protect a state that breaks the law… Ottawa threatening hate charges against those who boycott Israel. Imagine being a Jewish BDS group and getting charged with hating your own self…
A day in the life: Andrew Coyne: A telling 24 hours in Stephen Harper’s world. Oh weird, I thought for sure it would have started off with a ritual sacrifice followed by some Timmy’s…
Or maybe a good ol’ Alberta-raised aboriginal baby heart: Grand Chief ‘horrified’ Alberta quietly allows organ harvesting from children who die in provincial care. I actually saw this link earlier but didn’t even read it because I naturally just assumed it was completely fake. It’s not.
Because no male politician has ever gotten drunk and said something inappropriate: Federal Green Party leader blames failed humour for controversial comments. So she dropped a couple of f-bombs. It’s not like she’s dropping real bombs. On Syria. Illegally.
The elephant in the room: How Hells Angels and criminal gangs came to control much of the Vancouver docks. We’re going to remember this the next time the media decides to go poor bashing in the DTES, right?
Dead whale in the room: Dead fin whale hit by cruise ship spotted in Vancouver’s harbour.
Beggars can’t be choosers? The poor-door debate is a waste of our collective breath. Let’s imagine Stephen Quinn in Alabama in the 60s: “Look, black and white people have always been separate. I wish it wasn’t the case, but that’s just how it is. This issue over separated drinking fountains is a red herring…”
Hero of the day: The case against Bank of Canada.
