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!

A curious set of questions...

Georgia Straight political columnist Bill Tieleman reports on a poll done by the B.C. Liberal Party to measure the public's view of party leader and Premier Gordon Campbell. Tieleman lucked upon the story; the polling company (Western Opinion Resarch, the party's pollster of record) randomly dialed his home and asked a series of questions about Campbell, including this doozy:

Which of the following statements do you most agree with?

1. Gordon Campbell is doing a good job in trying times and deserves to be reelected.

2. Gordon Campbell is doing a good job but it's time for someone else to have a chance to lead.

3. Gordon Campbell is doing a poor job but he is still the best choice we have.

4. Gordon Campbell is doing a poor job and should be replaced.

Now, in truth, there's little wrong with a poliical party asking those kinds of questions, especially as they're 18 months into a 4-year mandate, and the effects of the government's policies are being felt acros the province. But wouldn't you love to get a peek at the results?
