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!

Richard Gwyn suggests that Prime Minister Jean Chrétien could be gone by next spring. In April, the PM will mark the fortieth anniversary of his first election to Parliament, and that might prove to be a convenient exit point for Chrétien, whose ability to control his caucus now that he's announced his retirment in early 2004, has become questionable.

National Post/Southam News Ottawa bureau chief Bob Fife has suggested the same thing; he opined that the PM couldn't last another 16 months on CPAC's Inside Ottawa last Friday.

Of course, those who underestimate the skills and determination of Jean Chrétien are usually proven wrong to the point of embarassment.

Shall I get some crow ready for Richard and Bob, just in case?
