Late Night In Canada

It's quiet in the big country. The smoke has cleared from Montreal, and Quebec's fires are coming under control. Although language and access to English schools could always reignite another kind of conflagration. Still, it's looking like a peaceful start to the summer.

There's talk of a Liberal, NDP merger and that could provide entertainment all summer long... albeit the kind of entertainment most are like to tune out. Kind of like a crappy sequel to a decent Canadian sit-com.  If you can imagine such a thing!

On May 13,Foreign Affairs Minister Lawrence Cannon said that protecting Canadian waters for Canadians is a top priority of the Conservative government. That doesn't mean he's actually going to find an effective way to do that. With the Conservatives, it's always the thought that counts.

The Tories want Canada bend to the wishes of others (music/film industry lobbyists) as they introduce their new copyright bill. More on this in the near future. Cheers!
