R-r-r-roll up the price increase!

As usual, I expect a price increase in Tim Hortons products during the R-r-r-roll up the Rim contest.  Customers do not complain during the contest period.

Whose Pride?

Toronto Sun's Sue-Ann Levy wrote,

"Yet the [Pride community advisory] panel members conveniently ignore the fact that all the mainstream press, the major mayoralty candidates and most city councillors were in agreement last year that QuAIA and its hateful messaging does not belong in the parade."

Is the mainstream press gay?  Mainly no.

Were the major mayoralty candidates gay?  One (possibly two) out of six, five, four...

Were the former and are the current city councillors gay?  Mostly no.

Other than deciding on city and corporate financial support for Pride, the LGBT community can decide on its participants in the parade and week's events.  The LGBT community doesn't need to be controlled by outside individuals and groups.

One year without looking at Blogging Tories

I've gone one year without looking at the Blogging Tories website and its related websites.  Yay!

Also, Rogers cable customers in Toronto can enjoy a free preview of Al Jazeera English on channel 176.  I don't know how long the preview will last.

Groundhog Day cancelled due to excess snow

Groundhogs in the Toronto area will not need to report to work as Mayor Ford has proclaimed today as an official Snow Day.  Instead, Mayor Ford will be sending his weasels to monitor weather conditions around Toronto.
