Four In The Afternoon: Moose With A Molotov

4 in the Afternoon1 THE MEANING OF A TRAGEDY John Gormley’s an interpretation of the terrible train crash in Lac-Mégantic: it’s the fault of environmentalists!  If you like an over-simplified pro-industry spin on your news written by a guy who doesn’t believe the scientific consensus on climate change, you can read that here. If you want an intelligent, insightful and rational opinion on the tragedy, I recommend Martin Lukacs in the Guardian. Meanwhile, the CBC has details on the poor victims. Also, there was a fatal train crash in France. Six people are dead.

2 HERO WHISTLEBLOWER EDWARD SNOWDEN WANTS TO STAY IN RUSSIA Well, okay. I’m not a fan of Russia these days–the country’s batshit homophobic–but a guy’s gotta take an option that’s open to him, I guess.

3 GET YOUR COSTUME READY The Conservatives have re-scheduled their party convention, was was cancelled after the Calgary flood, to Halloween.

4  MOOSE IN REGINA, MOLOTOVS IN SASKATOON Moose here, Molotovs here. Thank god Moose haven’t figured out how to make Molotov cocktails. Or have they?

  1. Hey guys! there is a great festival going on at the Artful Dodger this weekend called Cravin’ Art. Friday and Saturday- Art Market, live tunes, and dancing at a fantastic venue! Come check it out :)

  2. I’m sure there is a difference between “listening” & “hearing”..See Ya there ! : )

  3. Edward Snowden had to stay in Russia, Bolivia was willing to take him, we know what happened there! So it’s not altogether a matter of choice.

  4. When there is a railway disaster in France the government initiates 3 government and judicial inquiries and its national railway carrier immediately takes responsibility.

    The US owned shortline in Quebec that destroys a community blames everyone but themselves and the Harper government accuses anyone who asks what responsibility Transport Canada had of allowing a one person train crew on a train of high explosives of “playing politics”.

    We need to learn from the French….
