Christy Clark wants more powers for BC, but give environmental assessments to the Harper feds

On the CBC's The House, BC Premier Christy Clark discussed Thomas Mulcair's views on the Northern Gateway pipeline proposal.  I think she was trying subtly to link Mulcair's comments to the BC NDP.  She didn't think it was necessary that BC should have its own environmental assessment of the Northern Gateway pipeline proposal.  She would rather give this responsibility to the HarperGovernment (TM).  At the same time, she wanted more powers for BC (except environmental assessments).  She supports electing senators for BC that Harper can reject for appointment.

Scaredy Squirrel Meets Gay Men

My comment posted on The Wingnuterer about A Squirrel Explains Gay Marriage:

 Scaredy Squirrel Meets Gay Men: WHAT TO DO IF TWO GAY MEN WALK BY MY TREE:

Gather nuts.

Hide in tree.

Wait for couple to walk by.

Aim nuts at their nuts.

If they start taking photos of me, play dead.

Keep playing dead. Pretend they don’t exist.

Play dead a little longer until they walk away.


1:00: Gather nuts.

1:05: Hide in tree.

1:10: Wait for couple to walk by.

They stop.

1:15: Aim nuts at their nuts.

Fall out of tree! Oh no!

Play dead. The couple is coming toward me!

1:20: Keep playing dead! Pretend they don’t exist!

1:25: They’re taking photos of me.

Now, they are offering me some [mixed] nuts.

I accept.

They take another photo of me with some nuts stuffed in my mouth.

They smile at me.

I smile back. Or at least I try with my mouth full of nuts.

1:30: They wave good-bye and walk away.

I run back to my tree with my nuts knowing that I will never be afraid of gay men again.

[Toronto's mayor, Rob Ford. could follow Scaredy Squirrel's example.]
