#BlueDot Tour in Regina

The Blue Dot Tour

David Suzuki came to town last night with musical and other intelligent guests on the stage. They gathered a crowd in the Centre of the Arts to show public support for a constitutional amendment, giving air and water protections like 110 other countries have already done.

The Blue Dot Tour

The method set forth is to get City (and town) Councils to pass these rights, then provinces, and overwhelm the federal government with requests until every democratic party supports the movement.

The Ballad of #MikeBrown

If you go to Quik Trip
You’d better take your gun,
Cause the boys in blue will get you,
That’s how things are done,
In #Ferguson.

If you finish highschool in this two-bit town,
A quick trip may last forever if they gun you down,
The fate of poor #MikeBrown.

Those darn pedestrians are a threat, don’t you know?

Everything is Carbon

A little spill happens now and then, destroying life.

Accidents don’t happen.

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.

#TellItToTheJudge Because #TellVicEverything Went Sideways

Vic Toews becoming a freaking judge was the most predicted patronage appointment since Harper put Duffy into the Senate, and we know how well that turned out.

It looks terrible. The bench should not be used as a retirement home for burnt out politicians. That’s what the Senate is for, and certain consular offices.
