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!

Canadian Alliance leader Stephen Harper was featured on South Surrey MP Val Meredith's "Constituency Report" political imfomercials that MPs and MLAs get on the local community channel*. On the upside, at least he dressed in something more flattering than that damn golf shirt -- from the looks of things, he's upgraded to an off-the-rack suit from Tip Top. However, he either hasn't gotten around to getting any on-camera training, or perhaps said training just ain't clicked yet. He still comes off as being about as warm as a concrete floor and just as equally concerned with the day-to-day worries of Canadians. Ugh.

* Yes, I know that Shaw Cable has gutted the community channel that once was on cable 4, that no volunteer-produced programs remain as full-length shows, and that the remaining programs are often like infomercials for Shaw products. It's a ripoff of whatever amount is taken from your cable bill to provide this dreck. I preferred community TV when it was poorly produced shows about things that hardly anyone cared about.
