1 THE MIGHTY, POLLUTED WASCANA Good story on CBC radio this morning. Read all about it(as soon as a link is available).

2 GOODBYE, JACK LAYTON The NDP leader’s memorial service was this weekend. Here’s a link to Regina coverage.

3 HURRICANE IRENE BASHES LA BELLE PROVINCE Windows were blown out in Montreal and 180,000 homes were without power. Other hurricane reports here, here and here.

4 WAR AND HUNGER  AND SADNESS AND STUFF in Libya, Syria, Somalia, Israel.

5 IM IN UR BASE EATEN UR KIBBLE A smug-looking fat cat at the Moose Jaw Humane Society is on a diet.

6 INDEPENDENT ABORTION COUNSELLING PROPOSED IN BRITAIN Read more here. Reasonable reform or a scheme to insert anti-choice propaganda into the medical system? Take a wild guess what my suspicions are. Even more here.

Here’s a random video! I’m sure it’s a 100 per cent authentic PSA from the 1950s.

One thought on “Six In The Morning: Wascana, Layton, Hurricane Irene, Cats And Communists”

  1. Wow, in the minds of Canadians, Regina will immediately be rendered the toxic, polluted, 1970s industrial waste Love Canal of the country. And they’ll be amused to hear it.
