200,000 people have signed this petition to stop the Secret Police Bill C-51. Add your name too at stopc51.ca...
This is nuts. Tell the government to #StopC51 and rein in this reckless, dangerous, and ineffective legislation today.

Thoughts on the upcoming Translink Referendum.

We essentially have two governmental bodies with fundamentally opposing viewpoints both trying to solve the same problem.

Translink's philosophy is to get everyone out of their cars and into public transit. The body that governs roads is tasked with the opposite problem of building the very roads Translink wants us to stop using. This is an insane way to solve the transportation problem.

What we need is a single body that manages transportation, that deals with all forms of moving people around, and relies on well founded evidence to take the long term view of how to do that without resorting to ideology. It should be funded separately from General Revenue and be held accountable in some meaningful way.
It should be pragmatic so that it understands where public transit is applicable and where cars are applicable.

It should have a long term vision to plan ahead for the future of transportation such as self-drive cars that if successful will fundamentally change our notion of transportation forever. Only a single agency that can see this big picture will have a chance of succeeding.

Translink is a testament to the past and cannot possibly fulfill this mandate. It is broken. So, no, I don't want to throw more money at Translink. I want a realistic, practical long-term transportation solution, not a narrow, short-term transit solution.

Party of One by Michael Harris.

This book has all the intensity and intrigue of a John Grisham novel as Harris carefully details all the changes Harper has made to Canada since coming to power. I could not put it down.

Harris's attention to details and facts will give you an incredible insight in to the reasons behind the changes Harper has made, and the scandals and corruption that swirl around this man. Regardless of your political persuasion, you will learn things about Harper you did not know.

I could not find the Kindle edition in Canada, but got the eBook from Google which can be read on any Android or Apple device.

The MicroSD card reader on the Dell makes this chromebook useless for most people and the Toshiba with the standard SD card slot the clear winner by far.
Midrange Chromebooks have never been so good. Here's a long-term, real-world comparison of this season's standouts: the Dell Chromebook 13 and the Toshiba Chromebook 2.

Meet Chromebit, A ChromeOS computer on a stick that you plug into just about any display to turn it into a computer.

I absolutely love my Chromebook and this just makes it more accessible.

Brilliant
If you plug the stick into an LCD display or a TV, you can run the sort of software you typically run on a personal computer.

First Harper came for the scientists
I remained silent
I was not a scientist

When he came for healthcare
I remained silent
I was not a doctor

When he came for the veterans
I remained silent
I was not a veteran

When he came for the Muslims
I remained silent
I was not a Muslim

When he came for me
There was no one left to speak out.

Silence of the Labs

This fantastic CBC Fifth Estate documentary exposes the incredible damage to science that the Harper government finds inconvenient. It is no wonder they are are also trying to kill the CBC too.

The message here is: Ignorance over evidence.

I'm planning to be there.
Actually these demos are really boring and I often wonder how effective they really are. Does Harper give a shit? But what else to do other than vote him out in the fall.

If you support changing BC's Family Day to coincide with the rest of Canada then please add your name to this petition. Help reach the first goal of 15,000 supporters...they are almost there. Also consider writing to your MLA to make them aware of this petition.
Family Day was originally created to give people time off to spend with their families. For the rest of Canada that celebrates Family Day, it occurs on the third Monday of February except in British Columbia (B.C.). In 2012, B.C. Premier Christy Clark decided to pass the Family Day Act, which made the second Monday of February BC's very own Family Day. Having B.C.'s Family Day out of sync with the rest of the country has spurred economic and so...
