I remember very differently!
TRADES TRADES TRADES
FUCK YA, CANADIAN ALLIANCE
Fucking Macleans. My memory is more: TRADES TRADES TRADES - we had a fur trade and then NOTHING HAPPENED TO INDIGENOUS PEOPLE EVER AGAIN - TRADES TRADES TRADES - some really bad french lessons - Canadian History (read: two World Wars).
So this popped up on my Facebook today…
Miss Conception, a regular drag performer (and a funny one) in Toronto, appeared on Wipeout Canada. Here she is being punched in the face.
JEALOUS FOREVER. I want to be on Wipeout Canada so bad.
This is my friend Emily Parsons. She is awesome and is trying to win a dance/video competition. If you too believe she is awesome, watch this video of her boogying on her farm in Farmington, BC (yes, it is a real place — I KNOW RIGHT?) and give her a ‘like’ on youtube.
Don’t let anyone tell you that Canadian politics is boring. Is there any other country in the world where election fraud would be carried out under the name “Pierre Poutine”? Even better is that Pierre Poutine lives on Separatist St in Quebec!
I can’t wait for the Government to appoint Ronald McDonald to investigate the fry and gravy minister.
Pakistani-Canadian filmmaker Sharmeen Obaid-Chinoy won Pakistan’s first Oscar on Sunday, for her documentary Saving Face, which depicts the story of women disfigured by acid attacks.
Lesser-known on the impressive list of productions by the 33-year-old is Highway of Tears, which she made in 2006 about the aboriginal women who have gone missing along Highway 16, the famous stretch of road between Prince George and Prince Rupert in British Columbia.
Tellingly, Prime Minister Stephen Harper congratulated Christopher Plummer for his win as best supporting actor in Beginners, but his statement did not include a word about Obaid-Chinoy. He even congratulated the Canadian tech award winners.
Once again, Rick Mercer flawlessly expresses what we all are (read: should) be thinking. Everyone remember how pissed everyone was about the Sponsorship Scandal? And rightly so, I might add, as that was shady as hell, but how people can try to dismiss when the Sponsorship Scandal brought Liberal rule to a halt is just mind-boggling.
