Kiss of Death - Week 63 - July 9-17th

Oh dear.  Is this the kiss of death from Thomas Mulcair?  He's predicting the death of the Northern Gateway pipeline.  I see Stephen Harper putting it in now just out of spite.

And how about Enbridge?  It seems like the US officials have hammered them for causing the Michigan spill.  Honestly.  Story after story after story after story.

Vic Toews, man.  He's going to win the next election for the NDP.  First, he comes out swinging, pointing out that prisons aren't overcrowded due to the omnibus crime bill, and aren't all the people who said such things stupid?  I mean, never mind that it's only been a couple of months since this legislation has passed and the effects probably won't be seen for a year or two.  Vic Toews claims success!  And "no overcrowding problems" apparently doesn't include double bunking.

There were some protests against Stephen Harpers various cuts to science research.  Ya, I'm sure this will change his mind.

The Supreme Court has decided not to decide on the Etobicoke election...fiasco?  Yes, that's what we'll call it.  Fiasco.

Ooooooh.  I haven't watched it yet.  But the NDP has created a counter-ad to Stephen Harper's attack ad.  I'm going to watch right now.  Meh.  It's pretty good.  Similar look to the Conservative ad.  Points out that Stephen Harper, while claiming he is the second coming of the economic christ, hasn't done shit to fix the economy.  And yes, I realize this is a world problem and not all his fault.  But he claimed he was going to fix it and he hasn't so he can deal with the repercussions of that.

This has nothing to do with Canada.  But it's a pretty interesting article explaining why we are where we are (in the economic toilet) and why the average person is kind of screwed, at the expense of a few very rich bastards.
