PIPELINE!!!!! - Week 118 - July 29 - August 6

Did everybody disappear to some magical, secret, pipeline conference last week?  Goodness.

Obama calls bullshit on Keystone XL projected jobs numbers.

Stephen Harper counters with his own full court press on Keystone.

More pipelines, as the East-West pipeline becomes somewhat more official.  At least we would be refining this stuff in Canada...

In a related note...

Strange this story isn't really showing up in Canadian newspapers all that much.  CBC covered it a bit.  But Canadian Natural Resources Ltd. seems unable to control a tar sands oil leak.

Huh.  A pretty interesting Tyee article on our inherent hang-ups and prejudices that help fuel the climate change debate.

The train company that blew up Lac Megantic still hasn't paid any money to victims.  Further stressing why we need so many pipelines, right Steve?

Somebody stole some pride parade flags in Fort McMurray and lit them on fire.

Something just seems really seedy and sordid about this.  You've already been elected Premiere and you make some very specific promises to your own riding if they elect you?  It doesn't sound like a whole lot of money, but it just kind of feels wrong.  Not to mention the recently elected MLA resigning just so you can run in an expensive by election because you weren't able to get yourself elected in your home City.  Thanks Kelowna.

Do you think they hold meetings to figure this shit out beforehand?  "Okay, you make a proclamation about marijuana legalization so that we can hit up our donors, and in return we'll make something up about abortion so you have something for your guys."

As Canadian jobless numbers have gone up, so have the number of "Temporary Foreign Workers".  I'm guessing corporate profits have gone up as well.

A long Macleans article on Stephen Harpers official bastardization of Canadian History.  I should add "depressing" into the description as well.

Patrick Brazeau...bad things...worse than we had before suspected...don't need to know anything else about this.  Wish this guy would just go away.

Another video of the Toronto police shooting has emerged.  The kid was most definitely on that tram alone.

Late addition - Okay.  What a bunch of fucking assholes!  Holy shit, this is some crazy spin.  Crazy!  Let's pick this apart a bit.
"Hottest Month of the Year so Far" - I'm guessing July is generally the "hottest of the year so far" every single year - More homes sell in the summer.  31 days compared to June's 30.  August hasn't happened yet...Fuck off.
"Busiest since July 2009" - Sooooo...what does that actually mean?  That was a whole 4 years ago!

Benchmark price is actually down.  And this is a completely made up number by the Real Estate industry in the first place!  Fuck these guys can spin.  Fuck I hate the real estate industry.
