The Last One! - Week 223 - July 27-Aug 3

Okay.  Here it is.  Our final ever post.  Before we get into covering the election.  More of a whimper than a bang...but I'm so sick of all this stuff, this is the best I can do.

Not quite sure yet how I'm going to handle that.  Two posts a week?  Daily?  Shit.  I want to be on vacation.

Steve chose the last official day in government to appoint a Kinder Morgan consultant to the National Energy Board, where he will oversee the approval of Kinder Morgan pipelines.

Funny.  The $720 UCCB payment is actually $158.

Macleans outlines the decline of our Navy.

Meanwhile, we just bought missile defense radar from Israel?  What the fuck are we going to do with that?

Steady hand!  Canada's economy shrank in May.

Our new Supreme Court appointee is a vocal, Conservative partisan.

The Cons are racing to announce things.  Toyota!  Money!  The announcement was supposed to be August 7th, but now it is a race to re-schedule.

The Cons are going to announce their intentions on voting reform.  All of a sudden, the will of the people is foremost, and an election mandate won't be enough.  They want a referendum!

The NDP might pull out of the Consortium debate...because Steve isn't there.

Under the TPP, crown corporations would have to exist solely in the name of generating a profit.  CBC.  Canada Post.  This is the kind of control we will lose under this deal.  This is why Steve is trying to ram through the TPP before the election is called.

A Conservative MP got caught announcing new funding for work that had already started.

This is funny.  Combining a pile of Conservatives reading from the same script.

This is a confusing article.  Conservative attack ads on Justin Trudeau are convincing NDP voters to vote for Justin?

The Cons have used a committee to shut down requests to hear directly from Joe Oliver on the dismal state of our economy.

Some behind the scenes on Stephen Blaney ratcheting up the anti-terror rhetoric.

Anonymous has started leaking CSE documents.  Amongst the revelations: We tried to spy on Obama (at the behest of Steve).  He found out.  He didn't like it.

There may be evidence that the Warner copyright claim on the Happy Birthday song is nonsense.

A pretty funny article outlines the disruption that Christy and Steve created with their firefighting photo op.

In light of Oil Sands jobs potentially disappearing due to driverless trucks, I think this is an important issue to consider.  When a government pushes a project with wildly inflated job claims, I think it is up to them to prove them out to us.  Not just dismiss the people asking questions, as Rich Coleman does when told his 100,000 LNG jobs might not exist.
