Another great event at the Tinto Coffee House in Toronto, by my friend Jon Elmer. A month-long photo exhibition, “The Children of Palestine: Images from the West Bank and Gaza Strip”, by Jon Elmer will open in our mezzanine starting Wednesday, February 1, 2006.
So, fitting my last entry’s random thoughts about laying claim to the majority, it seems that no one can – which I think is a very good thing. The conservatives got a minority. The NDP picked up a lot of seats. The lesson: the liberals lost, the conservatives didn’t win. One would be hard pressed […]
So, people who follow this blog know I was pretty worried the last time around about a conservative victory. I created the ‘fear and loathing report’ to follow the election. This time I managed a measly two blog entries. Partly, admittedly, my blogging output has fallen off. I am trying to spend a little more […]

It’s interesting to see how the editorializing on behalf of the Tories goes. It’s basically – the liberals are bad, and the tories really aren’t as bad as you think. Quite […]
Another nice blog brought to you by Joe Emersberger. Read his letter to the UK Independent with his brief introduction, below. Sometimes the media will be honest about an issue, then disregard what it has documented at a future time when the information becomes much more embarrassing to Power. The case of Luis Posada Carriles […]
So, there’s an election on in Canada apparently. Everyone else is doing it (Bolivia, Colombia, Ecuador, Guyana, Brazil, Israel, Palestine, maybe Haiti), why shouldn’t we? I didn’t pay much attention at first because I figured I’d already seen the episode: a report comes out, it turns out that the liberals are corrupt because they were […]
Happy New Year. Sorry about going AWOL. Let’s just get straight back to business. Things are happening very fast in Haiti.
