Hello:

I saw the new cabinet that Harper has picked.... :rolleyes:

He should resign..the election was a waste of my money...he failed at getting his majority...he was on a power trip...nothing to do with making things better....everything to do with Harper's ego...and his personal conflict with Dion...

Juliet :coffee:

Hello:

I was reading the Toronto Star on the weekend. I see a female, Camilla Scott, is playing the role of Freddie Mercury in the Mirvish production of WE WILL ROCK YOU...

She said that her chest voice is suited for Queen tunes...she just belts them out..

Camilla has hosted her own talk show on CTV and performed in Mama Mia and Crazy For You..

The show on the weekend was sold out....

Juliet

I used to watch her talk show all the time. :hidinginwall:

Interesting that she's playing Freddie Mercury - but hey if Cate Blanchett can play Bob Dylan - why not.

Sarah Palin falls victim to pranksters after accepting an on-air invitation to hunt baby seals from 'President Sarkozy'By Mail Foreign Service

Sarah Palin fell prey to a radio prankster when he pretended to be French President Nicolas Sarkozy and talked her into accepting an invitation to hunt baby seals.

An apparently oblivious Mrs Palin told the caller, a Canadian comedian using an over-the-top French accent, she thought the hunting expedition would be fun.

The prankster also got Mrs Palin to reveal she may one day go for the top job in Washington.

Trick shot: Sarah Palin told Canadian pranksters impersonating French President Nicolas Sarkozy they could have a lot of fun on a helicopter hunting trip

The Alaskan governor and Republican running mate of Senator John McCain talked for nearly six minutes.

The conversation touched on topics such as a Hustler porn video made about her, Vice President Dick Cheney's hunting ability, Mr Sarkozy's ' beautiful wife' and how the French leader could 'see Belgium' from his house.

Scroll down to read the full transcript of the conversation between Sarah Palin and the pranksters

Asked if she would like to eventually become president, Mrs Palin responded, 'Well, maybe in eight years.'

She was called by a member of the Quebec comedy duo The Masked Avengers who have tricked other celebrities and politicians - including Mr Sarkozy himself.

Thank you very much. It would've been more fun had it not been so damn easy: Johnny Hollyday was named as Sarkozy's special American adviser; the Prime Minister of Canada Stef Carse, and she didn't even blink:

Palin: Well, he's (the Canadian PM) doing fine, too, and yeah, when you come into a position underestimated it gives you an opportunity to prove the pundits and the critics wrong. You work that much harder.

Good job proving critics wrong :slapface:

Gordon Lightfoot to tour in 2009

hasn't toured in three years. (Aaron Harris/Canadian Press)

Legendary folk singer Gordon Lightfoot will tour for the first time since 2005, taking his act to 21 cities in Canada and the U.S. beginning in April.

The Orillia, Ont.-born singer, who turns 70 this month, will start his tour April 8 in Nanaimo, B.C., followed by stops in cities including Vancouver, Calgary, Edmonton, Winnipeg and Thunder Bay, Ont.

His final concert in Canada will be in Sault Ste. Marie, Ont., on April 18. Tickets go on sale Friday. Other dates include concerts in the U.S.

Lightfoot, who has 16 Junos, has been in frail health since 2002, when he halted a tour because of a stomach aneurysm that nearly killed him.

Since then, he has made rare appearances, especially to perform.

His last tour was in 2005, with 33 dates including stopovers in Toronto, Stratford, Ont., Las Vegas, Detroit, San Francisco, Boston and Atlantic City, N.J.,

A companion to the Order of Canada, Lightfoot's many hits include Early Mornin' Rain, If You Could Read My Mind, Sundown and The Wreck of the Edmund Fitzgerald.

Ally:

I just noticed this now...the snow that feel last weekend was pretty intense..I think it was much worse in the Maritimes...

Thanks for your concern....

Juliet

Yes, the Maritimes did get hit bad. Record snowfalls ! I hope everyone there made out OK too. When I originally posted, I was watching the news and London was in the process of being covered.

Woo-hoo! I have got to see Gordon on this tour. I have enjoyed his music for years

and years but never seen him perform live.

I'd love to as well Steve but at $300 for the cheapest ticket, I may have to pass. He is playing in Nanaimo on Vancouver Island for two nights prior to his two night stint in Vancouver. No ticket prices have been announced as of yet for those show's. I may have to take a road trip :D

Three hundred dollars is the cheapest ticket ?!!? Just when I thought I had the perfect

excuse to fly in and visit my pally ally. Crikey that's a bit pricey.

Well, if your serious about flying in my man, I'll see what I can work out. As I said, there are two shows in Nanaimo and two in Vancouver on consecutive nights. Small venues. Just let me know

I do need to get out once in a while.

:)

Vancouver ! Lightfoot would make for a good reason but as KB said, riding a Harley cross country in the middle of winter could pose a few problems for him. Those ticket prices are posing a few problems for me :D

Don't look now, but Canadian politics is getting exciting. Really!

http://www.cbc.ca/canada/story/2008/12/01/...tion-talks.html

Harper could soon be known as leader of the longest minority government, and leader of the shortest minority government. Way to go.

Sooooo glad that election's come back to bite him in the ass (finger's crossed)

I'm genuinely curious if anyone knows the number of times that the ruling political party was the same in US and in Canada. Some politicians were using the 'change' rhetoric left right and center. Where have I heard that before? :)

There is NOTHING exciting about a coalition gov't headed by a leader that was sounded trounced(lowest electoral support ever for a Lib leader), the NDP and the real winners in this fetid stew, the Bloc. A coalition Gov't cannot survive without long term support from the Bloc...the same party that wishes to tear this country apart.

This is nothing but a backbench coup. I sincerely hope that the Gov. General does NOT allow this sorry afair to go through. Economic implications aside, it insults the Democratic process that this country undertook 6 short weeks ago.

The results are in:

Higher taxes

Higher debt

Higher interest rates

Higher unemployment

Deeper regional division amongst Canadians

General chaos(historically 100% failure rate with ANY coalition Gov't)

No thanks. I'll take the pig i know...

Well one thing is for sure, this country is going to learn what the real role of the Gov. General is. I hope she understand's the scope of her responsibility. Whatever she decides.

Check out this gem from the CBC re: the Bloc view...

Accord 'in the best interests of Quebec': Duceppe

The Bloc would not officially be a part of the coalition, but the new government's survival would depend on its support.

Duceppe said his party entered into an agreement that is "in the best interests of Quebec, of Quebecers during this time of economic difficulties."

"We chose for the time being to give priority to the economic situation and to the assistance we must provide to people," he said.

He added he did not agree to support the coalition beyond the 2011 date because the various parties could not agree on "concrete action to recognize the Quebec nation."

Parliament is due to vote on a Liberal no-confidence motion on Dec. 8. If Harper's government were to lose a confidence vote, Dion would request that Jean approve the proposed plan to form a coalition government.

But the Governor General, who is currently on a state visit in Europe, could also decide to send Canadians to the polls for a second time in less than two months. The prime minister could also still block coalition efforts by proroguing Parliament — that is, suspending it without dissolving it.

In other words, when Canada's economy and identity are sufficiently decimated due to this coalition, the people of Quebec will, in the year 2011, be presented with another opportunity to depart this nation.

Great...just fucking great.
