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!

Liberal arachnid Warren Kinsella has, for reasons not completely clear, posted the PowerPoint slides from some little speech that he made to a weekend meeting of young Ontario Tories. Apparently, it wasn't the usual harrowing expedition into the enemy's camp, or at least not what you'd expect when a rather well-known, outspoken Liberal comes to crash a Tory Party.

I'll have to take Warren's word on the demeanour of young Progressive Conservatives. After all, there are likely less than 100 young Tories in the entire Province of British Columbia, so how would your hunble correspondent know of such things?
No curses, no threats, no projectiles sent my way. Seldom have I clapped eyes on a nicer, more wholesome, more clean-cut group of youngsters. It was like being trapped in a room with a bunch of Donny and Marie clones.
That's actually scarier than a room full of vicious, snapping neo-cons. Combative SOBs I can handle. Polite young people with entrenched conservative ideals? Yoinks!

However, the slides prompt some new questions... Did Mike Harris really say, “I am not uncomfortable with homicide where Warren is concerned. But don’t get caught, okay?” Okay, I wouldn't put it past Harris, given the thuggish way that he ran the government of Ontario. Also, there was this standard note on the slide presentation:
These slides are part of a Navigator presentation and are
Incomplete without the accompanying oral commentary.
I wouldn't mind hearing that accompanying oral commentary. It might just be entertaining.

Of course, you should read Warren's blog -- it may be the key to your personal success as a human being.
