Category: Canadian Politics

It’s only going to sting for a moment

Are you sick of hearing about Canadian Politics yet? Gee. That’s too bad. Because I have something to say. That must surprise you. I would really like it if political reporting/spin/whatever would stop harping on something. And that something is the personal beliefs of the candidates. It really, really shouldn’t matter if a politician supports gay marriage or opposes abortion… Read more →

Please tell me

I’m not being facetious here: please tell me what is so threatening/frightening about a coalition government? I’ve heard a lot of people say that Canada needs to adopt a two-party system of governance so that we no longer have to be faced with things like minority governments and the possibility of coalition governments. I have to admit that I just… Read more →

Blue Steel

I don’t think Stephen Harper looks like anybody other than Stephen Harper. My discovery of Michael Ignatieff’s true identity yesterday has me thinking about this.

And, ironically, the majority of people who voted… Read more →

I wasn’t gonna

It’s really not that big a deal

All of a sudden, people all over effbook are freaking out about the two-year-old story that Gary Goodyear, the Canadian Minister of Science, doesn’t believe in the theory of evolution. I think this is a bit of an odd turn. I mean, it’s been out there for over two years. It’s not like we didn’t *know* that the guy’s personal… Read more →
