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!

Just one more shot for Jean Chrétien?

It could be, in a way. Finance Minister John Manley indicates that there may only be one more budget as apporved by Prime Minister Jean Chrétien. A lot of this has to do with the timing of upcoming of the federal budgets and Mr. Chrétien's retirement date. Federal budgets have traditionally been delivered in February, but the 2000 mini-budget and 2001 budget have been announced late in the year; Chrétien will retire from the Prime Minister's Office in February, 2004.

Manley also indicated that he would resign as finance minister is asked to deliver a deficit budget, barring disaster or major recession; heès unwilling to pay the political price that a deficit budget entails.
