Do you let it mellow?

Well, do you?

What's the etiquette for public washrooms? Friends? Family? Parents? What if you have lo-flo? Do men and women follow the same protocol? Is it ideology, good practice or lunacy?

I have a lot of questions.

It is time for greens to join the Orange Wave

Today, two prominent members of the Bloc Quebecois came out in support of Jack Layton and the NDP. "Voting NDP is today the solution for escaping the cycle of minority Conservative governments," wrote a former Bloc riding association president and a former Bloc adviser in an open letter. The NDP popularity in Quebec is based on shared values of social justice and a commitment to the environment, values which are widespread in Quebec. Quebecers are recognizing that splitting the progressive vote is inimical to getting their ideals represented in Parliament. Now is the time for progressive environmentalists in English Canada to make the same choice.

At its 2010 conference, Britain's Trades Union Congress called for the creation of one million green jobs to tackle unemployment and the environmental crisis.
