I miss my ITV

There is something missing in my TV schedule.

The programing is the same but I no longer get that old rush of adrenalin about the 10 and 20 minute marks. It all seems so bland now.

CTV News, hockey night in Canada or reruns of The Big Bang Theory no longer cause my blood pressure to rise. I think that I am suffering from AIAWS and who could blame me, after four years of constant infusion.


I would venture a guess that similar to a drug addict being pulled cold turkey from their daily fix, millions of unaware Canadians are now suffering from the Anti-Iggy Advertising Withdrawal Syndrome. A disease that leaves you complacent, empty and hollow.

However there is a light on the horizon. With the oil companies no longer having to funnel their funds through non profit, political advertising fronts, we are now seeing an increased number of Tar Sands advertising.

The earth mother talking about clean water and the U of C professor talking about thousands of scientific projects to further enhance the processing of black tar from boreal forests and the native spokesperson telling us how much the oil companies care.

Yes I think these new ad campaigns might be our methadone like cure.

Thank you oil companies.

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.
