Another Conservative “cover-up”

It’s bad enough that there’s no sight of Conservative candidates campaigning to public crowds in Regina, but Conservative-friendly orgs are also trying to cover-up their interview contents.

This particular Con candidate is running in Wascana, against Goodale, among others. I once saw a sandwich board say he was door-knocking in Parkridge, and another time his campaign flyer came to the door. That’s the extent of interaction I’ve had with this man who passionately wants to end a woman’s right to choose a pregnancy or not.

In contrast, I’ve sat next to Ralph Goodale last week at a candidate’s forum, and interviewed Frances Simonson of the Greens for my blog.

CBC Wrecks Another Debate #elxn42

I’ve long called for More Debates, Not Fewer Debaters, and CBC again disappoints.

My Feb. prediction, sadly is coming true.

The unethical fools at the Broadcast Consortium will probably gladly keep Elizabeth May away from the debates this year too.

Here’s a portion in High Definition:

And another segment (it’s also included in the long video at the top, so if you’ve seen that, there’s probably nothing new in this clip either.)

So you don’t have to imagine what it would have been like if a Conservative candidate had bothered to show up:

If You Don’t Like Canada…

Comments from CBC story, discussing the U-Pass at the University of Regina:

Corruptable writes:

forcing someone to pay for a bus pass they will not use is ludicrous. she would force everyone to pay for a parking spot that only some will use…

blue cheese responds:

getting taxed for schools when we have no children,
paying more on our power bills to provide cenovus with liquid co2
getting taxed for city recycling whether we want to or not
paying for the football stadium whether we use it or not
paying for healthcare whether sick or not
etc etc.
in canada we look out for everyone, if you don’t like canada, vote for a conservative. you will pay for all your services out of your own pocket and still pay taxes.

Liberal Big Tent May Be An Echo Chamber

Suzuki and Trudeau are both plain spoken people. They both strike me as straightforward. The difference is that Suzuki is much older and doesn’t appear to cater to anyone, while Trudeau obviously looks to his Liberal back-room advisers to tell him what way the wind is blowing. If the smoke is blowing at the young leader from his backside, and the Liberal string pullers want it that way, they aren’t about to save Trudeau.

Apple’s Welcoming Ceremony Challenged By Robot

I’m cool with a robot waiting in line for a little tech innovation.

It makes more sense than a human wasting their time.

“Since the iPhone’s official release in 2007, waiting outside for a new iPhone has become something of a tradition: a stupid, meaningless tradition, yes, but a tradition nonetheless. Every September we get to shake our heads at the people who are huddled up on the sidewalk, sleeping in tents, relieving themselves on our streets, creating a general Pigpen-like cloud of stench in the areas surrounding Apple Stores,”

I think lining up for Blackberry Mead in Regina is another stupid tradition that needs to change.

How fitting that Apple fans have turned the reception of a once revolutionary device into a religious ceremony that excludes acceptance of new devices and methods.
