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!

Kyoto support in unlikely places...

... like this September 1 editorial from the Edmonton Journal.

Yes, the Journal's editors had come to the conclusion that the federal government's ratification of Kyoto had become inevitable. Nonetheless, it's nice to see that at least one Alberta paper is looking forward, as evidenced below.

Canadians are part of this small planet, and must share in the responsibility for keeping it healthy. So by all means, let's ratify the treaty. Then let's find the best way to make that ratification a practical reality.

Can't say that I disagree much with that. Congrats to the Journal's editors for taking a stance which is not very popular, even in relatively liberal Edmonton.

Of course, I have no doubt that Journal writer Lorne Gunter (I won't call him a journalist; his stuff is more fiction than fact) will bitterly criticize the federal government, and so on. Were you really expecting anything different from a redneck who used to write his fiction for the Alberta Report?
