The Supremes and the Senators: Weston called it, and calls it

Another fine Weston analysis, save and except his reliance on a Justin Trudeau advisor (without identifying him as such).  Bottom line: a referendum is seemingly the only way to circumvent ten ransom-seeking Premiers.

It’s do-able, I think.  The question, however, is this: is the Senate the hill Harper wants to die on? Or can he craft a big win out of it?

I honestly don’t know what he’ll do.  But my suspicion is, if he pushes for a national referendum on abolishing the Senate, he’d win.  Hell, Mulcair already agrees with him, and Trudeau likely would, too.

Interesting times ahead.  Or, not.

Da Brudders: 38 years ago today

Bjorn reminded me Da Brudders first LP – my fave ever, still – came out 38 years ago today. Here they are in Arturo Vega’s loft in 1975, around the time that a teenage misfit in Calgary was starting to hear about them. God-like geniuses. Can’t believe it’s been almost 40 frigging years.

Mayor On Crack

This Saturday night at the Bovine Sex Club on Queen West – see it live, buy merch, help us pay for our therapists!


Dear Adam

We put our clients on our web site.  Have for years.

Here’s one of the ones that, shockingly, has been there for years:

Oh, and this is where this sort of nefarious stuff all gets tracked, year after year, from the Auditor General’s web site.

Anyway, best to your Dad. Good luck and God bless, etc.
