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!

Prime Minister Jean Chr├ętien has told Parliament that Canada will not send troops into Iraq without a second UN Security Council resolution. In other words, he's finally hopped off the fence, about 6 hours before George W. Bush gives Saddam the ultimatum to leave Iraq or be invaded by the U.S., the U.K., and any other members of the coalition of the billing. Took ya long enough, Jean.

The announcement was greeted with applause from most of the House of Commons. Members of the opposition Canadian Alliance, otherwise known as the northern branch of the Republican Party, said that Canada should instead stand shoulder-to-shoulder with the United States.
