Tony stop do not build the lake I have a plan

By now you have probably read about the Harper governments plan to build a lake in downtown Toronto resembling the Muskokas to house the G8 media while the G8 conference is taking place in the real Muskoka, 200 Km away.

It is going to cost us millions, because Tony Clement (you know the MP that does Japanese TV ads for his constituents) this time, promised his constituents, the folks who live in Muskoka and make their living in the tourist industry that they would get international, olympian sized, PR from all the foreign press and since the press can't go there (security reasons, I assume that they probably should of told Tony about earlier), he is bringing Muskoka to the media by building a lake in Toronto.

But stop, Tony, I have a plan, in fact two that can save us all millions.

Now the first one is a tad, tricky so pay attention. Since the same media will be covering both the G8 and the G20 meetings, while the G8 in Muskoka is going on let the media stay in hotels in Toronto and meet maybe in a ballroom or something like that and then when the G20 starts in Toronto, move the media to the now vacated cottages in Muskoka and spend their time on real Muskokan lakes and write about Muskokan night life. Best of two worlds, so the speak.

Now the second idea is simpler and I personally think somewhat sounder...

In case you forgot we have a lake in Toronto, in fact it is one of the Great ones. So let them stick their feet in that one, we will save millions of dollars and the foreign press won't write articles about the craziest idea most of us have ever heard of.

And maybe just maybe you and your government will not look like complete morons.

662

That is the number of Syrian refuges that the Harper government has brought into Canada.

From the Globe and Mail:
However, the government is facing criticism because 2,374 Syrian refugees have so far been settled. Of that number, only 622 - or 26 percent - were assisted by the government. The others were privately sponsored by individuals or non-government. The others were privately sponsored by individuals or non-government organizations. The NDP argues that in addition to private sponsors, the government should immediately accept 10,000 Syrian refugees. Liberal leader Justin Trudeau said the target should be 25,000 government-sponsored refugees, which he estimates would cost Ottawa $100-million.In other words the Harper government that banters around the 10,000 plus refugee number has brought in 622 refugees or about 170 families.

The other 2,352 so called refugees that Harper has allowed to emigrate to Canada consist of wealthy Syrian Christians who paid their own way in, hightailing …

Election close call, Omar, Bob and move over Warren

Wow that was a close one:
With the NDP leading in the polls at the beginning of September, I started to prepare myself, for the very first time in my life, to vote for the NDP. Mulcair looked good enough for me, with some of the best lines about Harper's Government during most of his interviews, except that he would always add the phrase, "just like the liberals" to the end of it and I thought, if I'm one of those Harper hating, Liberal voters that you probably need to vote for you, why the hell are you insulting me with this partisan bullshit.
