The rough beast, his hour come round at last

The last day
Thursday, January 19th, 2017

I have had this poster beside my desk every day for eight years. 

I supported him right from the start, long before 2008. I couldn’t vote for him, but after I saw him speak at the DNC convention in 2004, that was it. I was with him. 

He has been a president who conducted himself with dignity and integrity and grace. No scandal, no laws broken. No loss of that extraordinary sense of hope that he embodied. 

Last night, at the Canada in a Trump World event I moderated, I ended things by quoting him to the hundreds in attendance: 

Change will not come if we wait for some other person or some other time. We are the ones we’ve been waiting for. We are the change that we seek.

He believed that. It will be so hard to keep believing that in the dark time ahead, but we have to try. 

I am so, so sad today. I won’t be posting anything else but this. 

Tonight at the Mosaic Institute
Wednesday, January 18th, 2017

Execellent Toronto Star report here. 

By the by, Blood and Honour is a decades-old neo-Nazi group in Britain. Combat 18 is a skinhead group whose members have committed multiple murders. The “18” refers to the first and eighth letters, A and H – Adolf Hitler.

Their posters have been put up all over Calgary.

Welcome to the Trump times. 

Trump to Canadian conservative fans: too bad for you, suckers!
Wednesday, January 18th, 2017

This is the point I was trying to make on Evan’s radio show on CFRA this week: who gives a shit about Keystone when the Unpresident does this? It’ll make the NEP look like a romp in the park.

Get it, yet, Canadian conservatives? Tired of kissing Trump’s fat orange ass? You will be, soon enough.

From my former Herald colleague Caludia,  here.

Canadian oil and gas producers happy to see the end of the Obama era are quickly coming to the realization that the imminent Trump presidency could be even more challenging if he moves forward with the adoption of a border adjustment tax.

While other Canadian sectors have been vocal in condemning the proposal, “no sector … will be more affected than petroleum,” according to Colorado-based energy expert Philip Verleger, who has been studying the recommended U.S. tax code changes since last summer.

Verleger, principal of consultancy PKVerleger LLC, believes Canadian exporters of oil and oil products are in for a nasty surprise.

“Bluntly speaking, for oil the law’s passage is pure mercantilism. Exporters from Mexico, Canada, and the rest of the world could be shut out,” Verleger writes this week in a report to clients. “As Woody Allen would say, ‘Sorry, suckers’.”

Inaugurating the Unpresident: media and protest updates
Wednesday, January 18th, 2017

I will be on with my friends at CITY-TV on Friday to provide colour commentary.  I can’t wait to talk about the Unpresident on-air.  Tune in!

Also, Lisa and Daughter Two will be heading to the Women’s March in D.C. the same morning.  Lisa is writing about it for the Hill Times, and will be doing hits from there with a number of Canadian broadcasters.  The two of them will be in the U.S. capitol all weekend – and I can report that the Canadian Embassy and Ambassador David McNaughton are doing very fine work, making sure that the thousands of Canadian women at the march are protected and safe.

Finally, on Saturday at noon, I will be at Queen’s Park – hopefully with several thousand like-minded friends – protesting the racist, sexist, groping Human Cheeto.  Come if you can!



The one Conservative leadership candidate you could support

Maybe I’ll do a do-over. Hmmm. 

Kevin O’Octopus
Wednesday, January 18th, 2017

A woman I know well used to work with Kevin O’Leary. She and her female colleagues called him “The Octopus.”

So maybe he’s like Trump, after all. 

Anyway. My column from last year about this bilious blowhard, here.

What a joke the Conservative Party has become. It’s like Harper never existed.
