Saskboy's Abandoned Stuff: Johnstone: Supports Coal, But Calls Out Wall’s Lack of Plan

A notable column in the Star Phoenix from Bruce Johnstone, as he chastises Premier Wall’s “grandstanding” and for having no plan to deal with climate change. Wall called the plan, […] a “betrayal” of the PM’s promise to develop a collaborative climate change policy with the provinces. This despite the fact that Wall and the ...

Saskboy's Abandoned Stuff: CBC Censoring More Of My Comments

The following is blog navel gazing that you probably won’t be interested in, but I’m keeping a record of it for my amusement. A change (probably in personnel) about 2 months ago at CBC has prompted them to start disabling (deleting) some of my comments on their news stories. A collection of them is below ...

Saskboy's Abandoned Stuff: #CBCbehindthestory at UofR

CBC talking about how they cover stories. I’m trying to use: Facebook Vine Periscope Snapchat “johnkleinregina” YouTube Twitter Flickr WordPress ADDED: Soundcloud   ADDED: LIVE on #Periscope: How does a journalist build a story? @SheilaColesCBC & @JillMorganCBC are up at #CBCBehindTheSt… https://t.co/PxT9UQW1Cq — CBC Saskatchewan (@CBCSask) March 1, 2016

Saskboy's Abandoned Stuff: Do Not As I Used To Say and Do

Not sure what’s more pathetic and hypocritical: Wudrick and Taylor feigning desire for un-tinkered elections, or Wall pining for Ottawa money. @saskboy what on earth are you talking about? We just want a referendum. We SUPPORTED STV in the BC referenda. — Aaron Wudrick (@awudrick) December 28, 2015 The hypocrisy in each case approaches satirical ...

Saskboy's Abandoned Stuff: For #elxn42 I endorse Trudeau, but not the Liberals. #MoreGlobeEndorsements

This will come as quite a shock to many, since I’m a long time Green voter, but I’m endorsing Trudeau for PM, but think his party needs to start advising him better immediately after the election. This endorsement surprises even me, because I didn’t wake up knowing I was going to make it, I just ...

Saskboy's Abandoned Stuff: Learn About Conservatives

Here’s a fun way to learn about the Conservative Party of Canada. Reminds me of how I speak of Prime Minister Harper while on Twitter, I reference this guy instead: I have been Prime Minister for 10 years. #elxn42 #cdnpoli pic.twitter.com/75NRMc6HcY — Not Steve Harper (@pmoharper) August 4, 2015

Trashy's World: Progressive Bloggers

I would like to give a quick tip of the hat to Scott (of Scott’s Diatribes) and the others behind the scene who make the blog aggregator – Progressive Bloggers – plug along year after year… And now in its TENTH FREAKING YEAR!  Older than the Harperite nightmare, it is! Quite an accomplishment, indeed. For ...

Saskboy's Abandoned Stuff: Lang Still at CBC

Amanda Lang still hasn’t been suspended from reporting for the CBC. Meanwhile, Global did a little required housecleaning. “When people say they have no politics, it means that their politics aligns with the status quo. None of us are unbiased, none removed from the question of power.” – George Monbiot .@CBCOmbudsman How can Lang take ...

Saskboy's Abandoned Stuff: CBC Live As Composed As A Live Blog

Ancient years ago, about 6, CBC journalists could be heard explaining to crowds how bloggers might one day be eating their lunch, but for the time being the responsible journalism was being done by the Main Stream Media. Then an armed gunman shot a soldier at the War Memorial before charging into Parliament with a ...

Saskboy's Abandoned Stuff: One Thought At A Time

If you write only one sentence paragraphs, it makes you look like a poet. You should try this too. Write only one line, then start another. See what happens to your writing. You might be surprised. In the end, you could be disappointed. Hopefully, you’ll want to share your rambling nonsense with the rest of ...

Saskboy's Abandoned Stuff: Coyne Skips The Trudeau #cdnpoli Taboo

One of the not-so-solemn duties of the blogosphere is to hold the Main Stream Media in check when they go a little astray. I’m not sure if I should hold Andrew Coyne’s hand as I walk him back to where he was a week ago, or if I should slap it for being caught in ...

Saskboy's Abandoned Stuff: Blog Action Day 2013 – Human Rights #BAD13

On Friday I was invited to talk about blogging, on Regina’s community radio station CJTR. The show was Human Rights Radio by Jim and Gord, and we spent the hour going over what a blog is, why it’s useful to have one, and how it could be used to promote human rights. You can give ...

Saskboy's Abandoned Stuff: ConCalls: Andrew Prescott Responds to Meier’s Proxy Finding #RoboCon #cdnpoli

With the Robocalls trial under way, some newer information is becoming public. That’s no thanks to the judge who has imposed a partial publication ban on investigative documents. One person with a legitimate account to make robocalls at RackNine, was Andrew Prescott. On Thursday he wrote me to bring to my attention a new detail ...

cmkl: My sweetie has a blog

One of the labour movement’s great minds and most driven, brilliant researchers has a blog. Oh and did I mention she’s got great taste in partners? She’ll be mostly following equality issues as they pertain to unions and their role representing individual workers and advocating for social justice generally. But you know I bet the ...

Saskboy's Abandoned Stuff: The Harper Government Must Be Right On Track #cdnpoli

This morning, I dealt with indignant HarperCons on Twitter, while they didn’t take my advice about the validity of claims by a certain tweeter not shy of bending the truth a lot to fluff his dear leader. Sorry for what you’re about to see, because if you drill down a little more into these timelines, ...

Babel-on-the-Bay: And that must be the length of it.

When you are always intending to write something about blogs and finally get around to it, you wonder why. As a blogger, you should be able to say something positive about the practice. It is neither illegal nor immoral, we hope. The fact is that most bloggers are cranky egotists. And if you want all ...

Saskboy's Abandoned Stuff: ConCalls: Yep, Still Defrauded #RoboCon

*Canada: 0 Days Without Election Fraud* You can start at the beginning in great detail… Or you can jump to the end of the beginning. You can draw conclusions so simple a child, or a computer scientist could make them. I’m sure the corporate media will tell us if there’s a problem. Or maybe not. ...

Saskboy's Abandoned Stuff: ConCalls: Defending Election Fraud #RoboCon

With the Federal Court recently confirming in law that the Conservatives’ access controlled CIMS database was utilized by conspirators to commit election fraud, there are still some Conservative bloggers willing to put their reputations on the line in defense of not only the Conservative Party of Canada, but of the election fraudsters the CPC’s database ...

Saskboy's Abandoned Stuff: Ethical Amnesia: Confused As Harper

I’ve been misquoted as Stephen Harper by multiple public forum commenters at the Huffington Post, CTV News forum and on Facebook! The misquote was so plausible, and written originally by Kevin Wood, that I spent some time (like Stephen Lautens) trying to trace its source in newspapers. I couldn’t find it, because it was originally ...

Saskboy's Abandoned Stuff: ConCalls: Conclusions You Can Confirm Using CIMS Computer #RoboCon #cdnpoli

Stephen Taylor was confused this morning. If he read my blog instead of dismissing me as a bother, he wouldn’t be so confused. He thought the Federal Court Robocalls judgement was saying that no Conservative could have been involved, because the judge had said he’d seen no evidence suggesting that. I can’t factually explain why ...

Trashy's World: I’m thinking about setting up…

… a separate photo blog. I’ve become much more interested in iPhone photography lately using Instagram and would like to have a platform to post them to. I have tried Flikr but haven’t been impressed so maybe a blog is the way to go. Upside is that I’d have a more focussed site and would ...

Trashy's World: Website maintenance

I’ve been told that there will be some work on the server that hosts this blog so don’t be surprised if you try to come back later and get nuthin’. Hopefully the work will be completed today. (5) Trashy, Ottawa, Ontario
