I will continue my series on Bailey on Wednesday. I thought I’d post this today, though, as it’s timely and, well, I just felt like America needed a bit of hand and some encouragement. Well, America, you gone and done it. You’ve just put Donald Trump one step away from the White House. I’d first like to thank you. Every election cycle, you bring the crazy and become the scariest, most hilarious, jaw-dropping […]
This is a picture of Pierre Elliot Trudeau. He was the Prime Minister of Canada from 1968-1979 and 1980-1984, and was the father of our newly elected Prime Minister, Justin Trudeau. I love this picture because it goes against the more conventional view of a Canadian. Not all of us are reserved and understated. Some of us have a bit of swagger.

The core of their belief is simple enough: believe what we tell you […]
I normally don’t write about politics, specifically local politics, as many of the people who read this blog don’t live in my neighbourhood, and for the most part local politics is not exactly the most stimulating topic. But due to the rather silly and sad conduct of the former premier of Alberta, Alison Redford, I thought I’d post a little blurb on the latest (and hopefully the last) chapter of this saga.
