daily-aggregation-21. G7 LEADERS TELL RUSSIA TO STOP THEIR SKETCHY ANNEXING “In addition to its impact on the unity, sovereignty and territorial integrity of Ukraine, the annexation of Crimea could have grave implications for the legal order that protects the unity and sovereignty of all states,” says a peeved G7.

2. TWO RESIDENTIAL BUILDINGS COLLAPSE IN NEW YORK The mayor says it was a gas leak. At least two people are dead and more are injured. The New York Times says: “Records from the Buildings Department indicate that the rear exterior of one of the collapsed buildings, 1646 Park Avenue, had been found in 2008 to have “several vertical cracks which is hazardous for the safety of the structure.” The records do not indicate that the hazard was ever fixed.”

3. CHOW TIME IN HOGTOWN NDP MP Olivia Chow has resigned from parliament to run for mayor in Toronto’s next civic election. The official announcement will come tomorrow.


5. 30 REGINA HOMES HAVE NO WATER Stupid frozen pipes. In other seasonal woe news, Regina has some clogged and/or frozen catch basins.

6. UFO SIGHTINGS ARE UP IN CANADA OMG aliens! Contact with advanced extraterrestrial civilizations must be imminent! Or possibly there are other explanations for these incidents that include misidentified aircraft, unusual but natural atmospheric phenomena, meteors, birds, secret military tests and good old fashioned hoaxes.

7. ALBERTA’S CONSULTING THE OIL INDUSTRY ON THE PROVINCE’S CURRICULUM RE-DESIGN Alarming. I can see a role for industry opinions in something like shops classes, maybe, possibly. But if oil so much as glances at the, say, the science or history curriculum, there needs to be an epic freak-out.

8. SOMETHING TO DO TONIGHT The U Of R School Of Journalism’s 2014 James Minifie Lecture will be delivered by the CBC’s awesome Nahlah Ayed. You should go, especially if you’re a student press hack at the Carillon — Nahlah once toiled in the student press trenches, too.

  1. (3) Not to brag, but if you check back a couple of months, you’ll see that I called this one.

    (5) Homeowners next to a catch basin should take the responsibility to keep it marked (so it can be found when obscured by snow), keep it as clear as possible (don’t park on it, or shovel/blow snow over it), and get right on it when the thaw starts. Neighbours should chop channels to it ASAP, and keep them free of debris as temperatures allow.
