Why Quebec artists make my GTA lawn sign more important


Heritage Canada is a little upset at an article printed in Le Devoir on Monday claiming that the New Media fund is already dead and no longer receives any requests for assistance from producers.

So the Department issued this a quick press release today saying they haven't made up their minds yet.

Of course Heritage didn't react back in August when the Post first brought it up here and the Globe confirmed it here.

And what point are they trying to make here, elect us and we might decide to extend the program.

Methinks, the Tories might be giving up on getting those extra seats in Quebec if this is the best they can do in response to Le Devoir and the large Quebec artistic community.

My 4' x 3'  Mississauga, lawn sign is getting more important everyday.

Boys are not allowed to hit girls

Don't do much anymore except make breakfast for one of my grandkids, a seven year old boy, walking him to school, picking him up and then having philosophical conversations about his day. Living in the basement of my daughter's house, I really try, to not interfere with their parenting, but what the hell, right now he spends as much time with me during the week, than he does with them.

The other day my daughter who came home early and ended up eavesdropping on our conversation about when to fight and when to walk away. Apparently it was one of those days in the school yard.

"Look, it is really simple" I started, "there are only two rules about fighting.The first rule is, you don't start the fight, but if a boy hits you, hit him back, as hard and as fast as you can and don't stop until he runs away." He liked that part and demonstated how he would punch. "In other other words," I continued "you will only be in trouble if you started the …
