Protect The Rights of MPs
Any motion that aims to restrict the voice of individual MPs is in flagrant violation of our democratic process and should be rejected.
ADD YOUR NAME to the list of Canadians who believe that each MP must have an equal opportunity to fully represent the concerns of constituents.

Welcome To The Weekend, Kiddies, One Day Early
Hope the weekend arrives early for you, too, kiddies. As for me, tomorrow I am westward bound for a weekend of R&R with my spouse and some of my homies in Lloydminster, Canada.
Hope you are all alright.
Catch you on the downside.
OH! And, um ... GO RIDERS!!!

Recap: BC 14, Saskatchewan 35
Watch the highlights here.
Pete died last week. He was my friend, my compadre, my partner. Pete Ross taught me things about the world, and about myself. He was a being of shining light. He's gone now, gone to the clearing at the end of the path, and the world will not be quite the same. The world will miss him.
I will miss him.
We had some wonderful times together, Pete and I. Adventures. Check out the cap'ns log for one of our adventures.
Here's to you, my buddy. Fair winds and following seas. I will meet you on the other side. On the rainbow bridge, along with all the other critters who have gone before.
Sorry I missed your celebration. I hope there were tequila shooters with beer chasers.
Welcome to the weekend, kiddies. Raise your glasses. Here's to Pete.
Why We Can't Have Nice Things
[Best Case Scenario] Yahoo! Answer Results
Dear [INSERT NAME],
Just because you have experienced [INSERT YOUR SYMPTOMS], that doesn't mean you have [INSERT TERMINAL ILLNESS]. This is a common misconception made by millions of people, especially those that found this post on Google by searching ["IF I HAVE AFOREMENTIONED SYMPTOMS, DOES THAT MEAN I HAVE AFOREMENTIONED TERMINAL ILLNESS?"]. Everything is going to be OK. You can trust me because I have [AFOREMENTIONED ILLNESS] right now, and I have never had [AFOREMENTIONED SYMPTOMS], and nor have the people in the support group I attend. In fact, I showed the group your question earlier this week, and we all had a great big laugh about how silly your worries are! Just take a deep breath and go do something fun. Never worry about anything!

Canada's Military Procurement Like a Monty Python Movie
- from the Wednesday edition of The Star
Harper spent heavily on military equipment - a quarter of a trillion dollars more, over eight years, than if spending had been left at the pre-existing level of 1.1 per cent of GDP.
It was an astounding sum, especially when you consider how little equipment the military has actually received.
Indeed, when it comes to defence procurement, Harper is straight out of Monty Python - about as effective as a knight riding a make-believe horse while knocking two coconuts together to simulate the beating of hooves.
