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!

CBC Newsworld is reporting that Canadian Auto Workers (CAW) union president Buzz Hargrove will not seek the leadership of the federal New Democratic Party. Hargrove had previously said that he would make a decision by Thgursday (today) on whether or not he would enter the race.

Hargrove has long been a critic of the party and outgoing leader Alexa McDonough, often complaining that the party was not "left" enough for his tastes. He has previously suggested that he would consider running for the party's leadership if there was not a candidate of which he approves.

If it's true that Hargrove has decided not to run, it'll be interesting to see who be endorses; Hargrove is influential both within and without the CAW, and his candidate of choice can count on a substantial number of votes from Hargrove's fans.
