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!

There's that other federal leadership race...

A new site has popped up for all those of you who just can't get enough of the Tory leadership race. All seventeen of you.

Ths might ring a bell among the other readers; might you recall that current Progressive Conservative leader Joe Clark said that he'd leave his position next yerar. Good. There.

I must say that some of the names of putative candidates surprise me. Honestly, does anyone outside of West Vancouver even remember Mary Collins (MP from '84 to '93) or, for that matter, does anyone really think that Romeo Dallaire even cares a bit about becoming Tory leader?

As for Perrin Beatty -- why would he bother? He's dobtless earning more as the Canadian Manufacturers and Exporters' chief media whore. Why bother to re-enter the rat race?

But, if buzz and gossip about the Tory leadership race (only sightly more visible than the NDP one) are your thing, check it out.

In a related item, there's a 'Draft Bernie Lord' site being run by some Tories who think that they young New Brunswick premier is the man who can revitalize that august party.
