my heritage, an FCP update, and the yappy dog...



another sign of the times...

FCP update

FUBAR

i took a brief gander at the west side today. i stood on the concrete bridge spanning (just barely) fish creek just west of the lrt bridge. i looked upstream and spotted the hulking steel skeleton of a bridge listing, like the titanic, in the latte coloured water. normally i can't see this bridge from my vantage point...

i heard the park manager say on the radio that users will not recognise the park once it's repaired. as a biology type, i find castastrophic natural events, like this flood, to be fascinating and not to be feared. nature will repair itself... however, saying that, i am still amazed by the extent of the damage.

the yappy dog...

i don't know how many of my avid readers are watchers of "the hour" with george stroumboulopoulos or "politics" on cbc newsworld. not many, i guess, but there's been controversy over "cybersquatters" taking over liberal mp don boudria's namesake web address (i think he was tardy in paying his annual fee to reserve the address). not so usual i guess; however, when you consider the "squatters" are a group who call themselves the "defend marriage coalition" it's funny (considering the originally didn't mention that it was the unofficial don boudria website). apparently, mr. boudria is pro-gay marriage.

confused already? check out www.donboudria.ca.

well, mr. boudria busted a gasket when he saw his new website.

jason kenney, my esteemed member of parliament, whom i have aptly nicknamed "the yappy dog" in previous posts, caught wind of mr. boudria's anger. he told don to chill out. no big deal, eh... liberals have done the same to conservatives previously...blah, blah, blah...

rick mercer, in turn, caught wind of mr. kenney's verbal diarrhea and promptly purchased the honourable member's namesake domain name and re-designed his website.

check out www.jasonkenny.org. it's hilarious...

bookmark www.rickmercer.blogspot.com if you haven't already. it's a keeper...

Al, www.jasonkenny.org made my day! Thanks! I dunno Al, I have become an almost militant left winger these days. It offends me deeply that gay marriage is even an issue. Why would our "free country" limit people in such a way? What's next? Do we make them wear a special badge and restrict their movements? This is completely absurd. I cannot believe that so many of my fellow citizens would be so ignorant.
