When a Tree Falls in Saskatchewan

While reading news page comment sections, even hopeless trolls who’d normally mock people saving trees by “hugging” them, have seen the light because of the nanny-state circumstance dooming the trees they’ve been coached to hate even more than “tree huggers”.

Saskatchewan is a province of leaders. We lead the country in smoking. We lead the world in per capita Green House Gas emissions. And we’re leading the fight against the trees and their sinister plot to break all of our childrens’ legs.

Alberta P3 News #skpoli

Here’s some news hot out of Alberta. Only one of them is satirical.

The other satirical bit is that Saskatchewan’s Sask Party recently announced they’d be saving taxpayers millions of dollars by starting a P3 Bike Share like Stettler had. No wait, they said they were going to build P3 schools, after the Alberta model, to build schools faster.

All By Myself – In An Airport

Here’s a very clever music video made by a Dion fan, in Vegas airport. There is some smart use of the moving sidewalk, and escalator, along with some nice video editing.

Looks like the most fun you can have in an airport, without drawing unwanted attention from overzealous security.

One Thought At A Time

If you write only one sentence paragraphs, it makes you look like a poet.

You should try this too.

Write only one line, then start another.

See what happens to your writing.

You might be surprised.

In the end, you could be disappointed.

Hopefully, you’ll want to share your rambling nonsense with the rest of us.

You’ll never be quoted if you don’t start writing one-liners.

SaskPower Carbon Capture and Storage Going Online Today, On Schedule

“The government boasted at last week’s Boundary Dam symposium that the project will be up and running this fall and completed by next April, on time and on budget.”

Hey, today’s April Fool’s Day. Of course it’s not going online today, as planned last May September by politicians managing SaskPower.

Sask., Alta. to lead push for carbon capture; Energy, environment take centre stage at premiers meeting
Wood, James. Star – Phoenix [Saskatoon, Sask] 31 May 2008: A.6.

“The prospect of capturing and storing CO2 to allow for low-emission coal-fired electricity plants and oilsands developments is an alluring one. But much of the technology is yet unproven, the costs involved are massive and there must be a use for the captured carbon such as enhanced oil recovery.”

“(CEO Robert) Watson says SaskPower will be ready to start shipping CO2 to Cenovus by April 1, 2014.”

Wall continues to conserve the Conservative way.

Soudas All By Himself

I think Rob Anders would have been a better choice for Finance Minister than Joe Oliver.
