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!

U.S. backs down on border policy

Foreign Affair Minister Bill Graham announced today thast the U.S. will not, as previously announced, be fingerprinting, photographing, or heavily interrogating Canadian citizens who are originally from some Middle Eastern and Central Asian countries when those Canadians attempt to enter the United States.

This is good news for those Candians who were born in those countries but who have, since then sworn loyalty not to Pakistan or Sudan or Iran, but to Canada. It also shows that the Dpeartment of Foreign Affairs will, occasionally, show that it has a little backbone when the United States discriminates against Canadians because of what country those Canadians were born in.
