Harper calls in the pros from Norway

Harper has called in Norway to help salvage his forthcoming G8 showpiece initiative, maternal and child health.  
The special adviser to Norwegian Prime Minister flew to Ottawa this week to brief the conservatives on Norway's efforts to reduce the deaths of pregnant women and young children in poor countries. He stressed that family planning, including abortion, could not be stripped out of the strategy. According to Norway the G8 adopted a general consensus about reproductive health last year and safe abortion in countries where it is legal was part of the overall strategy.
Maybe Harper was in the washroom when those issues were discussed.
You can tell this G8 meeting is not going to go well. Harper should really stick to issues that he knows and cares about: the tightening of immigration policies, the building of prisons, eliminating the access to information or the creation of a one party state.

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 …
