On June 1, 2011, SunTV broadcast an interview with veteran Canadian dancer and choreographer Margie Gillis see link below, which quickly turned abusive towards the guest. In a message on his facebook page, Canadian dancer Louis Laberge-Côté, currently a teacher at Nationaltheatre Manheim in Germany, offered this assessment. In response to the Sun News […]
PLEASE spread this baby around. It will come in handy on Monday night. Eat NDP-led coalition, Steve!!! YouTube – Harper supports opposition coalition TVO 1997.
by Flick Harrison Canada’s copyright battles are in a holding pattern while Canada stumbles through 3 successive minority governments in almost 7 years. It’s a hot potato that won’t be sorted until someone has a safe majority to risk the bruising online guerre-a-outrance that would inevitably ensue. The Conservatives, now in power, really need their […]
[thought i put a note debunking this – but it seems to be missing. This turned out to be over-hasty in the heated debate over bike lanes – these guys, in a complicated way, WERE working for the city. Sorry for the overreaction] The people who oppose bike lanes are doing a bit of a […]
This article by Charles Adler is nonsense in form and content. It’s just wild ramblings trying to vaguely connect the Liberal party leadership handover to a criminal influence-peddling scheme.

The Saskatoon Star-Pheonix published this rare and silly defense, by Les MacPherson, of the RCMP’s taser attack on Robert Dziekanski, the Polish guy at the Vancouver airport. Man’s lack of co-operation necessitated force I wrote him this email in response: Mr MacPherson, Your definition of resisting arrest is novel. Walking away = violent.
Gwynne Dyer reviews the new movie of Frank Miller’s 300. That’s all, I haven’t blogged in a while ‘cos I’m too busy. I’m calling it: The Bloc pulls the ripcord (rejects the budget) within 24 hours either way of the Quebec Election. I.e. before the vote to throw the race and take a free news-cycle […]
Forgot to blog this Georgia Straight interview back when it came out – so here it is. I discuss the Big New Vancouver International Film Centre (VIFC) and its lack of Canadian programming. This article was sparked (I believe) by an anonymous email that included me in the CC line. Apparently I am the go-to […]
