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!

Harcourt 's COPE endorsement draws fire

... from NPA mayoral candidate Jennifer Clarke. To Clarke, the endorsement by the man who was Mayor from 1980 to 1986 is more proof that COPE, the civic party for which Larry Campbell is running, is the New Democratic Party in drag. After leaving civic politics, Mike Harcourt went on to lead the provincial NDP and serve as premier from 1991 to 1995. By the end of its reign in 2001, the NDP had become desperately unpopular in British Columbia, and the party was portrayed as having left the province in an economic shambles.
