First, the Prince of Pot has renounced his earlier claim that he smoked pot “a few times” with the heir to the Liberal throne. Apparently he was lying then, but not now. Really, you can trust him because he takes his reputation “very seriously”. Emery now says he was clueless about this video (#eyeroll) and […]

Hey @CBCCommunity, storify this: The Associated Press issued a formal retraction of a photo it published that claimed to show that a large lake had formed at the North Pole due to global warming. In its retraction, the AP admitted that not only was the “lake” simply a small melt-pond but that it was natural, […]

This is a thing… in Canada: Cheese Smuggling A Burnaby-based food importer has been charged with smuggling cheese into Canada. In court documents, the Canada Border Services Agency alleges Manuel De Oliveira either under declared, or failed to declare, quantities on 29 separate cheese shipments. According to a search warrant, the investigation began in 2008 […]

Hilarity ensues… To sum up: Gawker says the video’s disappearance is all the Toronto Star’s fault: Complicating matters was the fact that the Star‘s coverage contained several details—including the rough location where its reporters viewed the video, the rough location where it was purportedly recorded, a description of the intermediary’s line of work, the ethnicity […]

Based on the huge number of BC plates I see alongside us at gas pumps in the United States, I have to agree with this statement: Per capita consumption of all petroleum fuels has dropped an impressive 16 per cent in B.C. since the tax was introduced in 2008… And America thanks you.

The man-boy who would be king… of Quebec: “We have 24 senators from Quebec and there are just six from Alberta and British Columbia. It’s to our advantage” Nothing says “leadership material” like Junior’s divisiveness, amiright?! He hasn’t let go of his “Us vs Them” ideology — “us” being Quebecers and “them” being the rest […]

You can have your dorky Captain Kirk vs Captain Picard arguments. Canada’s own Cmdr Hadfield is the real thing… Cmdr Hadfield’s version of Bowie’s “Space Oddity” was made in part by Bowie’s former Canadian bandmate. (via @GinaPhillipsSNN) More here.

Christy Clark makes a habit of running red lights with her son in the car: And with that the car has already sailed underneath the stale red stoplight and through the empty intersection. “You always do that,” says Hamish. What an excellent example for her kid… And the media, when not totally ignoring the facts, […]

UPDATE: Never mind… BC Cons John Cummins says in order to eliminate carbon tax, other tax credits would have to be rolled back. #cbc #bcpoli — Stephen Smart (@CBCSmart) April 26, 2013 So much for fiscal conservatism… I’ll be voting for NONE of the above or below.

In a blatant attempt to buy an election with our own money, BC’s tied-for-worst premier* is pledging to extort more tax dollars from us for schools: As a new poll indicates B.C.’s premier is on very shaky ground with voters only a week before the election season officially launches, Christy Clark is pledging nearly $600 […]

While the Liberal-supporting #MediaParty members try to make out there’s some controversy regarding the Auditor General’s report on this massive Liberal scam, others are reporting the blatant and distasteful facts: Taxpayers have been robbed… In total, over the last three years, more than $50 million has been clawed out of public-sector operating budgets to pay […]

BC officially dumps the HST to revert to the old GST/PST system on April 1, 2013 thanks to stupid people who, out of anger for the BC Liberal lies (understandable), opted to punish everyone with the anti-HST referendum vote instead of punishing just the lying Libs at election time. Working part-time in retail, I get […]

Theresa Spence isn’t talking. The Attawapiskat First Nation chief is fasting and she can’t talk when she’s fasting, according to her spokesman Danny Metatawabin. Why not, I wondered?

If you buy eggs in BC, you are literally paying for the BC Egg Marketing Board’s propaganda: The British Columbia Egg Marketing Board, speaking for the province’s egg farmers who control it, routinely laments the growing tendency of consumers to save a buck or so a dozen by buying eggs in the U.S. Yet B.C.’s […]

In case you haven’t been following closely, the CBC tries unsuccessfully to shame Canada’s military over a two-year-old video made when Bin Laden was still alive. And they made their attack just days before Remembrance Day… Defund the CBC.

Further to this post here… The CBC adds the opinion of one of their own taxpayer-funded “comedians”: “When you are in the workplace — and especially if it is the military — it’s like you’ve got to have some kind of sensitivity to the current world that we live in,” said Majumder. Oh-oh, I smell […]

Dean has the latest on Canada’s “professional” journalists: Notice the CP headline “Harper ships armor-clad cars to India for 6-day trip” which is patently false as Harper has no say about his security. The Globe ran the same headline but has now changed it to “RCMP shipped armour-clad…” Smith and Chase both know full-well that […]

This article attracts such comments from these types: There is no room for dissenting commentary in the leftwing echo chamber! Round them up now and throw them in jail, or better yet, off to the re-education camps! Additional note: Apparently the violent fantasy is the genius of an Ottawa comedian, so that was probably a […]
