Four In The Afternoon: Realtors, Maniacs And More

1. WELL THAT’S A BOLD THING TO SAY Leader-Post business journalist Bruce Johnstone reports the Association of Saskatchewan Realtors has suggestions for Regina’s “just don’t call it a crisis” housing crisis. Click the link and see what you think.

2. QUESTIONS AFTER TRAGEDY Supporters of the (Controversial? Experimental? Miraculous?) multiple sclerosis treatment that has apparently (Probably? Definitely? Allegedly?)  helped some MS sufferers are unhappy with the supposed lack of support given to a Canadian man who died after the treatment.

3. HOMICIDE INVESTIGATION INTO FATAL RESORT  EXPLOSION Maybe it wasn’t swamp gas. Maybe it was a ruptured sewer line and criminal negligence.

4. PSYCHO COLONEL, QU’EST-CE QUE C’EST? The uniform of a confessed and convicted evil, murdering freak is burned.

BONUS NEWS NUGGETS! Rogers Communications is accused of misleading advertising campaigns and could be fined $10 million! The BC Liberals have begun a cleansing process of cannibalism! Barack Obama is taking on the Dipshit Republican Hordes over a critical arms treaty with Russia! And WTF, he’s also taking about a missile shield for all NATO members??? The federal government’s on the defensive over the United Arab Emirates base closing (and John Baird is scary-looking!) After 50,000 Brits marched to protest coming hikes in tuition fees, schoolchildren announce they’re going to go on a one-day school strike! Scrapping the long-form census will screw everything up! Everything! You don’t care but the University of Alberta student newspaper The Gateway is 100 years old! Schwarzenegger is leaving politics but he’ll be back, hopefully with an hasta la vista for climate change! There’s some kind of sporting event this weekend!  Rabid bats in L.A.! Good lord, did Hitler have a mad UFO scheme?

  1. Re: #1

    “The affordable housing crisis isn’t really a crisis at all, but a chronic shortage of rental housing units caused by government red tape and low rates of return on rental properties, according to the province’s realtors.”

    Lead overload alert.

    Me: “Hey co-worker, did you hear about the chronic shortage of rental housing units caused by government red tape and low rates of return on rental properties?”

    Co-worker: “Sounds like a bad situation. Kinda like a crisis.”

    Me: “Yeah.”

  2. let’s see if i can split this hair … hmmmmmmmmmm

    ” … while Saskatchewan residents spend a greater proportion of their income on housing (28 to 43 per cent, depending on the type of housing) than either Albertans or Manitobans, it’s still below the national average (29 to 49 per cent) …”

    I DID IT, WOO HOO!!!!!!!!!!!!

  3. 9/11, like the flooding after Katrina and housing meltdown, was criminal negligence. If it had happened on Gore’s watch, they would have filleted him.

  4. “Mr. Madder, what you’ve just said is one of the most insanely idiotic things I have ever heard. At no point in your rambling, incoherent response were you even close to anything that could be considered a rational thought. Everyone in this room is now dumber for having listened to it. I award you no points, and may God have mercy on your soul.”
