Revolt of the Rich

A scary yet important article that discusses the new secessionists: The rich who remove their wealth from society. In the wake of Mitt Romney’s 47% speech, it’s all the more imperative that those of us *not* in the 1% realise what the jerks are up to.

Tell Vic Everything

We Canadians are not very good at protest. We are, however, world-class at grumbling and snark. Legislation that would give police and spies easier access to information about Internet users was introduced this week in Ottawa. Public Safety Minister Vic Toews was an early supporter.

The Bull in Toronto’s China Shop

Christopher Hume excoriates Rob Ford, who continues his trend of doing exactly the wrong thing in any given situation. It’s shameful and embarrassing that our world-class city has to be led by this village-class idiot for the next few years.
