Canadian shenanigans

So it seems that the Canadian PM is playing silly buggers.

(Heh, I've always wanted to use "silly buggers" in the right context, so my mother wouldn't get mad at me for what is, technically, swearing. Hope you're proud of my restraint, mum!)

If you haven't read the reports in the newspapers (and, let's face it, I haven't, b/c I can't find them in any of the 3 papers I read online regularly), here's a great synopsis and extrapolation from a very fine Canadian woman.

(If you are not a knitter, you may not have heard of the Yarn Harlot, and may not have read her blog. You may wonder why I chose to refer you to her. Well, she is smart, successful (without making others unsuccessful), and she has a really great way with words. Also, it is the first explanation I've seen of the events that are unfolding.)

I'm looking forward to seeing how this unfolds. And if you're very, very good, I'll post about our own Canadian shenanigans in late Jan/early Feb.

Oh...that Stephen Harper is one big silly bugger and Madame Jean is a silly buggette for allowing for a suspension for 53 days. Btw, will you be in Canada at that time?
