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!

Hack Turns Flack

Let the sniping begin: CBC Radio senior parliamentary reporter Susan Murray has crossed over to the Dark Side to become communications director for public works minister – and fellow Bluenoser – Scott Brison.

Murray, a pit-bull questioner on air and in the scrums, was positively gushing over the new boss.

“I think the only person who could have enticed me away from the CBC is Scott,” she said. “Of all the politicians I’ve met – and I was a correspondent in Washington … he really wants to do a job.

“He really wants to do something. I find him a rising star on the political scene in Canada, and I guess, bluntly, I don’t mind tying my star to his. And I think he is going to go places, in a very positive sense. And not just politically in a public-service sense.”
