“The crew for singer Paul McCartney’s show in Regina put on vegetarian diet”…
“A BC proposed cable-ferry between Vancouver Island, Denman & Hornby Islands is drawing protests from islanders”…
“BC public school workers may go on strike in the fall along with Vancouver International Airport workers as early as Labour Day weekend”…
“BC’s Translink would benefit from retail revenue–more concessions?!”…

4. David Suzuki is bad for the environment.
5. A national day care program won’t do a thing to help poor kids.
6. The Group of Seven are overexposed genre painters.
7. The United States is the world’s greatest force for good.

“That would be a rose,” his friend responded.
“That’s it!” the man replied. Then he shouted to his wife: “Hey, Rose! What’s the name of the restaurant we ate at last night?”
