Daily Aggregation: Hungry Lions

daily-aggregation-21. REGINA PENSION PLAN GETS NEW RULES Changes are happening.

2. WALL GOVERNMENT TO RAISE EDUCATION TAXES? Years ago the Sask Party government took tax-raising powers from school boards. Now it looks like they’ll have to take the blame for a tax increase. Oops?

3. ALLEGEDLY RAPEY HOCKEY PLAYERS There’s a case involving players on an Ontario junior team, who allegedly tweeted the hashtag #ConsentIsOverrated while attending a house party. Ugh.

4. ARE YOU WITH DEAR LEADER OR DO YOU SUPPORT TERRORISM? A Conservative MP from Winnipeg mails out an idiotic flyer. Then again, Conservative flyers have always been crude propaganda for angry suckers.

5. SPEAKING OF TERRORISM Looks like a Toronto plot was foiled even without Stephen Harper’s secret police laws.

6. A FATWA I CAN GET BEHIND Really. That was fun to type.

7. McDONALD’S LAWSUIT AGAINST SEATTLE TO KEEP WAGES LOW CONTINUES What a bunch of McFuckers. We have a great background story on Seattle’s $15 minimum wage here if you’d like to learn more.

8. THE NEW Q The popular CBC radio show’s new permanent host is Shad.

9. IRAN’S GOVERNMENT SAYS WOMEN ARE FOR MAKING BABIES Bleccch. I think Iran might win the prize for coolest citizens living under a terrible government.

VIDEO: NO ANIMALS WERE HARMED IN THE MAKING OF THIS MOVIE Sounds like a few dozen people were, though. I want Jaden Pfeiffer to do a Talkies on this.

One thought on “Daily Aggregation: Hungry Lions”

  1. (1) This is long-awaited and hard-fought-for good news.
    (2) The 60-40 ratio was long advocated by school boards, back in the day when they had the power to levy their own taxes. They got it, but at the cost of losing that power. The government was supposed to come up with a formula to maintain that ratio and to calculate fair disbursement of money to the boards. Ask a board member how that’s been working for them.
    (5) And yet, someone on a high-risk travel list still managed to leave the country.
    (6) This is long, long, long overdue, and a sign that the community is finally ready to step up.
    (9) Nazi Germany revisited…except, of course, for the folks that the state didn’t want to multiply…
