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!

Did I just hear this? Earlier in Question Period, Canadian Alliance leader Stephen Harper said, "We can't get regime change in Canada quickly enough," in one of his questions. Regime change? As in forcible removal of the government by a foreign power, as in what the United States about to do in Iraq? That's very democratic of you, Stevie. That sort of bafflegab is not uncommon from Alliance supporters ranting on USENET, but is it too much to ask the Leader of the Opposition to show at least a modicum of respect for Canada's electoral process -- even if his party and philosophy comes out on the losing end?

I think that I'll stick it in the file with Harper's ravings about how by declaring neutrality, Canada is cheering for Saddam. If Canada is now cheering for Saddam, was the United States cheering for Hitler for the first two years of the Second World War?

(I'll check the edited Hansard on the Parliamentary Internet site after it is posted later tonight or tomorrow morning. It's possible that mine own ears deceive me, but I don't think so...)
