More Spy Stuff

The bottom half of this page is all about CSE.

Canada’s had a recent track record that’s bad. PONY EXPRESS ring a bell? So what is our watchdog really doing? Not much, judging by recent news reports.

Hot Room Politics

Media in Ottawa are too busy eating each other alive to focus on the main course passing authoritarian Bill C-51.

Glen McGregor takes the proposed Press Gallery changes apart.

#DontLookAtTheSun Sun News Off The Air

Gormley cooked up a conspiracy to try to blame me for his misfortune of attracting a protest to his book talk.

National Post Guilty of Defaming Climate Change Scientist

What does it say about Lang if her interview style is as friendly to almost everyone as those who pay her for public speaking, and are connected to her romantic relationship?


Almost 2 years ago, blogger Alison at Creekside1 had the scoop on Lang‘s greed and conflict of interest.

Flash back in time a bit:
“Saskboy:
Ombudsman tweeted me that Lang is off the CORE event.

How’s That City On The Hill?

From Barrett Brown, a wrongfully jailed journalist… in the USA. He’s imagining speaking to the founding fathers about the country’s progress:

Benjamin Franklin: “It was among my fondest dreams that my beloved Philadelphia would someday grow into one of the world’s great centers of high culture, and become a by-word for the gentlemanly arts. Tell me, has this come to pass?”

Me: “Uh …”

America… the failed experiment in liberty?
