Summer Takes a Toll - Week 11 - July 11-18

Strange Stephen Harper Obsessions - The CBC. The Harper Government starts talking about cutting the budget on the CBC. And why not? There's so many other great, fair & balanced news agencies out there.

A rare attaboy for the Conservatives as they consider protection for Woodland Caribou.

Apparently somebody did a survey on the lack of decorum and respect in Parliament. Read, pause, and then weep for democracy.

John Baird goes to China. He doesn't seem to yell at anybody while he's there, either.

I'm not entirely certain, as this whole thing is so murky, but it appears that the entire Helena Guergis affair has boiled down to a slap on the wrist for sending out self-serving documents on official parliamentary letterhead. So much for the hookers and cocaine?

I just read this article on McSweeney's. It's one of a series highlighting "dream jobs you're glad you didn't pursue." "You learned that the reason the senate chambers are so empty most of the time is not because senators are abusing their powers and not doing their jobs, but because that is the only way a senator can keep his job" is just so sadly on point.
