It seems hatemonger Peter LaBarbera's temporary detention by Canada Customs at Regina's airport last week was quite justified, considering what the bigoted troublemaker got himself into on the University of Regina's campus today. LaBarbera,...Show More Summary
What joyous news this Sunday morning! The insanity in Calgary West / Signal Hill is finally over! Rob Anders - the longtime homophobe, social conservative dork, with a penchant for falling asleep in Parliament (see pic on the right)Show More Summary
I've watched this week's events in Trinity-Spadina closely, mostly appalled at the hypocrisy on display. Let's briefly start with 22-year-old diva Zach Paikin, unqualified to be a MP due to a lack of life experience and a clear lack of judgment, who showed the world this week what he's made of.

Now that Olivia Chow has officially entered the race for Toronto's next mayor, the stage is set for an epic battle. The field of candidates is crowded, but it will definitely begin to thin out over the next few months. I predict theShow More Summary
I'm very pleased that John Tory has stepped forward to run for mayor of Toronto. This offers our city a clear chance of ridding itself of Rob Ford's reign of terror. Tory's an excellent candidate and would make an exceptional mayor! I'm definitely considering voting for him. Show More Summary
Very glad to hear this news today. Plus she's cute. Makes me wish I were a lesbian ;-) "In a speech at the Time to Thrive conference Friday, actress Ellen Page came out as gay. “I’m here today because I am gay,” she told the audience of LGBT youth at the Bally’s Hotel and Casino in Las Vegas.

Kathleen Wynne’s Ontario Liberals got decisively whipped in yesterday’s provincial by-elections in Niagara Falls and Thornhill.

I'm hooked! HBO has posted the first episode of its new 30-minute gay drama, 'Looking', set in beautiful San Francisco, on YouTube. Genius marketing. I'll be watching this one all the way to the end! LINK TO THE FULL EPISODE ON YOUTUBE HERE!
How horrible it must be to be LGBT in Russia these days. My heart truly goes out to all LGBT people living in Russia and their allies.Next month's Sochi Olympics are shining a light on that country's despicable treatment of its gay people and rightly so. Show More Summary
I'm excited about seeing this documentary this year, the only Canadian feature to make it to the Sundance Film Festival, which opened this past week. 'My Prairie Home' follows a transgender musician named Ray from a staunch Christian family in Alberta. Based on this CBC story on it that ran last night, it looks amazing.
Filmmakers (including myself on occasion) struggle greatly for years to get their stories on the big screen, from writing dozens of screenplay drafts, to finding money, to shooting, to post-production, to the agonizing process of distribution. Show More Summary
The Niagara Falls result in the 2011 Ontario provincial election was one of the narrowest wins by a Liberal incumbent in that election. Former MPP Kim Craitor, the incumbent since 2003, held on by only 500 or so votes in a tight three-way race, just ahead of the Tories with the NDP running a strong third. Show More Summary

It sucks when lefties so desperately want to win that they toss out their basic principles or judgment in order to try to do it. Such is the case with NDP candidate Linda McQuaig in theToronto Centre byelection. We've seen innumerable...Show More Summary
