Closure Capers

Closure has been implemented so many times by the government it makes me wonder if there is any morality left and how, if at all, the average person is even paying attention to what closure means. Personally, I think closure should be used only in the most extreme cases but as with most things, the Harper government is making the extreme more common so as to make it seem normal. How do we fight this and how do we move to inform the public in a way that doesn't bore them to tears?

"THE ANIMAL POLITICS SHOW" (NEW INDIE TV PROGRAM!)

Hey everyone!!!

Just started putting together a little independent news show (tv), just for canadians! 

it's kind of like the alex jones and max keiser of commentary married together and formed into a feline!

yes, it's a talking cat delivering the weekly news.

check out the very first half hour episode here and let me know what ya think!

i don't make any money from doing this, nor are there any ads anywhere--so don't expect too high production value from a dude with a full time job.

Why To Occupy? In Favour of the 99%

http://whytooccupy.org/

We designed this site as a go-to for anyone who might care to sample
the many good reasons, valid issues, and eloquent explanations that
are being offered to support the growing OCCUPY movement.

The support comes from a myriad of mortals--economists, actors,
writers, musicians, veterans, scientists, gurus, pundits,
personalities--the list goes on. And will grow. Heck, even the US
Chairman of the Federal Reserve has chimed in with encouragement. Go
figure.

So if anyone tells you this movement is just a bunch of scruffy kids
passing the time--send them here.

Federal NDP leadership candidates visiting BC

I propose this thread to be specifically dedicated to listing upcoming BC appearances of federal NDP leadership candidates. This is probably best in the Canadian politics section because it's federal, even though it's about one region of the country.
