Four In The Afternoon: And You Thought I’d Forgotten

4 in the Afternoon1 THE NDP LEADERSHIP CONVENTION IS THIS WEEKEND Stories here, here and here, and Murray Mandryk’s Wednesday column. The convention live feed will be here.

2 METIS WIN BIG COURT RULING Read all about it.

3 BELOVED TORONTO MAYOR ROB FORD ACCUSED OF ASS-GRABBERY Story here, denial here, story here again. He may well be innocent but it’s damning how plausible this seems. And wow, I don’t think I’ve ever seen a politician who looks worse in photos than Rob Ford.

4 CHAVEZ FUNERAL Here’s the story. Apparently he’s going to be embalmed. Ew.

BONUS! ┬áThe world had the second-highest CO2 emmissions ever last year, uh-oh. Calgary gorillas make a break for the kitchen!┬áNorth Korea is just plain nuts! Bill Clinton wants the anti-gay law he signed overturned! Ryan Getzlaf just got satchels of money and somebody at TSN wrote a punny headline! It’s daylight savings time everywhere but here (and I’m okay with that)! One of the world’s best restaurants made its customers sick!

HAPPY INTERNATIONAL WOMEN’S DAY! Here’s a video Friend O’ The ‘Dog (and reigning Regina’s Best Hipster) Eric Hill posted on Facebook.

  1. Harper’s attempt to write his own history on Chavez is blatantly insulting and frankly racist. Chavez voted in, non-controversially, THREE times by his people, yet Harper the pompous lardass trying to pitch Chavez as some third world tyranical dictator to satisfy his and his friends’ Cold War urges to portray people with different ideas to your own as subhuman, be they Russian or dark-skinned. Pathetic, our Prime Minister, knows only the gutter.

  2. He didn’t turn oil into grossly inflated executive bonuses and shareholder returns, that’s why Harperites hated him.

    Well-meaning ppl still act like increased productions leads to “lower prices” when it really just leads to $400 million CEO bonuses and shareholder largesse.

  3. Daylight saving time: “daylight savings time” makes it sound like it’s time for everyone to pull out their daylight piggy bank to stuff sunshine in for later.
