Six In The Morning: NDPocalypse, Plazafail, Greeks, Fishies And More

1 NO ROAD FOR YOU Regina’s plaza might never, ever open up to traffic. Wow. Much more to follow.

2 TWO-THIRDS SUPPORT FOR THE SASKATCHEWAN PARTY Going into the last weekend of the Provincial campaign, a Leader-Post poll puts support for Brad Wall’s team at 66.7 per cent. Wow. Maybe the NDP should’ve stuck with Lorne Calvert. Then again, Calvert lost the government in a strong economy which takes a special kind of talent. So maybe not. In othe rcampaign news, a complaint has been filed against the Saskatchewan Party’s blood-splattered depiction of Dwain Lingenfelter and… wait a second, whaaaa?!?!?

3 YOU KNOW THAT STATEMENT, “IT’S ALL GREEK TO ME”? The BBC has a Eurozone crisis debaffler. Link’s here. And here’s the Guardian’s coverage, which will give you a full morning’s worth of reading.

4 NO PORT FOR YOU Israel won’t let ships, one of them Canadian, carrying medical supplies for Gaza sail to Gaza. Read all about it.

5 SICK, SICK SALMON There might be new evidence linking fish farming to the spread of viruses that are devastating salmon stocks in BC. Maybe.

6 FAREWELL, CENTURION Pearl Lutzko,¬†Saskatchewan’s oldest resident, passed away this week at the heroic age of 112. R.I.P., Pearl.

  1. Am I the only person that can’t stand to see Brad Wall’s face above every freaking website I click on??!!??!!?? It’s driving me crazy, big brotherish and kind-of creepy.

  2. @ #1, the Sask Party likes to think it has penetrated the entire province, like permanently. Fact is their campaign is high school, but Sask is so ignorantly high on itself thanks to resource revenue and some misplaces visceral hatred for Link that it doesn’t care at the moment. The SP has given life to those without one; it’s bound to become elitist and arrogant and alienate it’s periphery; if it doesn’t, bravo to them, they’re truly inclusive but I imagine they will eventually.

  3. How about that NDP at 23.5%.Couldnt win now even if Tommy Douglas came back from the dead.
