He Said...

It's not often I agree with the Premier of this province, but this time I'm onside. As most are aware, the Liberal chief has slapped our educators with a two year, "no strike/wage freeze," and the teachers are screaming, claiming he's pumped a slug into the...

On a beautiful, sun-drenched, Saturday afternoon a nation bid farewell to NDP boss, John Gilbert "Jack" Layton... the Leader of her Majesty's Official Opposition laid to rest with all the pomp and pageantry that a state funeral offers.

(4) Comments | Posted July 25, 2011 | 12:06 PM

Under section 174 of the Criminal Code of Canada, going bare butt in public or exposing one's self to public view while traipsing about naked on private property, is a criminal offence. I'm paraphrasing of course, but you get the idea... if we can see your 'stuff' you're...

If I were the Mayor of Toronto (frightening thought) and had a cosy cottage up in the Muskokas, what would I be doing this July 1 weekend, the first long weekend of the summer? Chances are I'd be there with my family.

He Says...

I've always viewed Vancouver as a beautiful, welcoming city, the big jewel of our Canadian West Coast. And what transpired post-game of the seventh tilt in the Stanley Cup finals, did nothing to damage that image.

Paul Says...

The light turns red and suddenly they're upon you... like a zombie NASCAR pit crew, they pour onto the road, providing intimidated motorists with an unsolicited 'service.'
