Short 'n' Stubby: Whose Parliament?

I wasn't able to make our local anti-prorogation march today, thanks to some stupid self-inflicted foot problems that made donning my walking shoes impossible for a good long while. But that won't stop me from protesting, or making a holy nuisance of myself, in other ways. Like, say, blogging the day's events and articles worthy of reading:

Emily Dee kicks things off with a short but sweet (and to-the-point) video and the good words of Antonia Zerbisias.

So, coalitions with the Bloc Québécois are out of the question, because the latter is supposedly separatist and hell-bent on breaking up Confederation? Funny, Harpo didn't think so himself not so long ago, as The Tyee reported not so long ago...oh, how soon they forget!

Pale Cold at A Creative Revolution sends the pundits to the back of the bus. Fortunately, they don't have far to go--their bus always WAS a short one.

Michael Geist busts the conventional stupidities of the media and political parties both.

So, we progressives hate Harpo? Damn right--he's earned it! And you'll never guess who else does, either.

Even in Oman, they're rallying for Canadian democracy. How's that for a global village?

JJ has some numbers that should depress Harpo to tears. Bad Tory! No majority for YOU!

And if you really want to know what it's all about, Montreal Simon is your go-to guy. He knows this is much bigger than just a widdle prime-ministerial hissyfit that shut down Parliament (twice now).

Hope you are OK and the foot problem heals.

Thanks

Our Montreal event was successful too although much less turnout than TO.

The raging Grannies rocked!

Sorry you couldn't make it. There is a facebook group for Capp second wave; join it. we're going to be planning something else before March.

It will be fine, given time--it's a couple of very large, raw blisters that popped, so they'll need to dry up a bit, and the soreness will take a few days to go down. I walked too far on a new set of insoles on Thursday; that's what caused the rubbing.

In the meantime, I'm hearing good things all around--sounds like the demos were well attended. If Harpo's not back behind his desk in two days, I'm sure other opportunities will arise!
