Canada drops asbestos 'bombshell'This is disgusting and shows the moral core of Conservatives (and some Liberals) quite clearly: we're not even willing to warn the people how to handle the toxic exports we are selling to them. Ask yourselves:...Show More Summary
TheStar James: Ford turns back on gay community by shunning Pride Misguided. Small-minded. Toronto has definitely taken several steps/decades back under Rob Ford. What a dipstick of a mayor we have!
TheStar Catholic schools: Embrace the rainbow And for the record: the kids at St. Joseph’s Catholic Secondary School and all Catholic high school student trying to form the GSA are my heroes!
Cohn paints a disturbing picture of Tim Hudak's judgment on the energy and debt file. Perhaps the McGuinty Liberals stand a fighting chance this October after all!
I just wanted to quickly give well deserved kudos to the makers of this little promo for Toronto's Gay Rugby Team. Wow! I'm tempted to join (tempted, I won't be actually joining...haha.)Looking forward to blogging again soon when inspiration hits...
I have to say that if the federal Liberal Party does the same thing for its leadership and nominations, it will be well on the way to renewal and electoral recovery. A public primary would bring in thousands of votes, it would be extremely difficult to manipulate such a large pool of voters. Show More Summary
Great news tonight from the City of Toronto's executive committee. I was glad to email them this past weekend. I have no idea if it made a difference. I'd like to think so. Congrats to the Proud of Toronto campaign, especially Mike Went...Show More Summary
Stephen Harper's Conservatives have so many friends in the private media, from QMI and Sun Media to CTV. Already, Tory-leaning media friends have had a field day chasing down obscure NDP MPs-elect from Quebec, writing numerous stories about any resume mistakes the party may have made during the campaign.

Snobby, elitist Star columnist Christopher (don't dare call him Chris) Hume may hate the look of my condominium building, BeBloor. But I can assure you the view from my ninth floor balcony is incomparable (see above picture.) Yesterday, May 19th, was my birthday so it definitely wasn't appreciated seeing Hume heap scorn on my personal dwelling. Show More Summary
I was happy to attend today's Proud of Toronto event at Toronto City Hall at this crucial time. It was quite an event and will hopefully serve to galvanize the LGBTQ community into action. As many will know, Toronto mayor Rob Ford and his followers are gunning for Toronto Pride this year, hoping to cut off all funding for the annual event. Show More Summary
Blogger.com was down from Thursday noon until today, so please forgive me for not blogging about this sooner. Many have beaten me to it already. The B.C. Conservative Party hasn't elected anyone since the 1970s. Now their great white...Show More Summary
I'm still staring at the CBC's Canada Votes 2011 web page, particularly that beautiful map. It's slowly sinking in how far the Liberal Party has fallen. How it literally is staring oblivion in the face. (For if Liberals think 34 seats...Show More Summary
I agree Bob Rae as interim Liberal leader in Ottawa would be a very bad idea. Jean Chretien needs to stop playing his little games and move on...This is the kind of backroom manipulation and bullshit voters so thoroughly rejected last week and it's why the Liberals are in such dire straits today.
I've got to admire the positive spin by some Liberal supporters out there after last night's devastating and historic defeat. The people of Canada made decisive choices yesterday. They voted for continuity and stability in government...Show More Summary
"Polls don’t elect MPs," said Michael Ignatieff today. "Votes elect MPs. Let’s wait for the Canadian people to do what they want to do."The pseudo-science of gauging public opinion in a world in which many voters (especially youngerShow More Summary
I don't think this latest argument from Prime Minister Stephen Harper is going to resonate with the intended audience. As all Liberals know, Harper has led a vicious smear campaign against the Liberal Party since he became leader of the Canadian Alliance. Show More Summary
Remember when it came out last summer that Rob Ford had been arrested in Florida for drug possession and drunk driving in 1999 (see mug shot to the right)? The revelations followed other similar incidents which included Ford being thrown...Show More Summary
Nanos's daily polls this campaign have been always interesting and entertaining, but they seem to have caught on to the NDP wave in Quebec a bit late. Their regional swings defy gravity. Although I will say their leadership measurement has been fascinating and has correctly caught Jack Layton's meteoric rise. Show More Summary
I'm through with CTV's Question Period, the hour-long political gab fest held each Sunday. The show's bothered me for years with its barely contained conservative biases (symptomatic, of course, of CTV's biases.) There have been moments...Show More Summary
