When a broadcaster reveals their progressive side




Global TV has never seemed that progressive to me, but yesterday after my favorite soap ended, I'm watching Global Toronto news and Leslie Roberts while doing the summary of the oceanic CENSUS story on the newly discovered number of species, some what humorously adds:

There has been no word from Ottawa yet.

A definite shot about the canceling the long form census.

His co-anchor in almost disbelief repeats the line and then starts scrambling, as does the weather guy who is trying to make a quick segue. You could envision the floor directors draws dropping and making the cover up and move on, hand signals or yelling in their ear pieces.

Maybe not that big a gaffe for this pro Harper network, but I thought it was funny.

That was a nice, subtle jab :-)

I think that the co-anchor caught herself missing the quip. It seemed like she thought that Ottawa might have a comment - at least for a nano-second and then retreated quickly.

You are probably correct. They haven't been working together for that long. Damn those revealing nano seconds.

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.
