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!

Thanks to the staff at for declaring this unreliable blog as one of their election sites to watch. Props also to Raymond over at VanRamblings and Tom at Trail Spotter for the links and praise. I'll try not to disappoint.

TODAY: Paul Martin and Stephen Harper take the day off; Jack Layton doesn't (maybe it's true that Ms. Chow's food is his secret weapon); neither does Gilles Duceppe. Brian Tobin, enjoying the freedom that comes from not runnning for office, thinks that his party might be headed for a minority. In a scene reminiscent of what happened to Svend Robinson's constituency office in 1988 shortly after Svend came out of the closet, Winnipeg Mayor-turned Liberal Candidate Glen Murray's campaign office was vandalized and tagged with anti-gay graffiti; some anonymous poltroon on Pierre Bourque's chatboard thinks Murray faked it for publicity. As if.

LATER TODAY: Expect a roundup from week one of the election campaign. Who pushed the right buttons? The wrong ones? Brought up some issues that had been drowned out by the ever-present Medicare and Adscam? Also, I'll update the links to more journo-blogs, election news portals, and sites with good voter resources. See you then.
