The Vancouver Scrum

On the move!

Agh! You’re still here? My new site and weblog, is now up and running; new posts are building up over there, never to be mirrored here. Go! What are you waiting for? All the stuff worth keeping has been migrated over to the new server, and I don’t anticipate making any more posts here.

Bloggers and webmasters: Update your links! Simply replace with in your blogrolls or bookmarks to point to the new site. Old posts will remain on this server for as long as the people at Blogger/Google allow them to remain; unfortunately, I’m not going to bother to come up with any way of converting permalinks on this blog to their corresponding posts on the new site. Yes, I plead laziness. I also realize the irony of switching away from Blogger just it starts to add features that the demanding blog nerds insist upon.

Thanks for reading and linking, and see you over at!

This is weird.

Earlier, the Progressive Conservative delegates voted at their convention to keep the so-called "301 rule." This is the commitment that the Progressive Conservatives will run a candidate in every federal riding in a general election. This rule was placed in the party's convention to signal that they wouldn't run joint candidates with the Canadian Alliance or any other party.

However, the delegates have just passed a motion that will allow someone to be a Progressive Conservative member while also being a member of another Canadian political party. Inconsistent, to say the least.

The federal Liberal Party requires that would-be members not be members of any other Canadian political party.
