Melnyk Issue: Every Life Is Precious



Your agent doesn’t spend a lot of time worrying about the resources of people who are dying.

We just want people to live.

So yes, Ottawa Senators owner Eugene Melnyk used facilities that others don’t have to get a liver donor … the publicity machine of his hockey club. The point is, his life was on the line. What is the alternative? Watch him slowly die? Not acceptable.

The City Of Ottawa Gone Rogue

Poilievre: Just Say You’re Sorry

Pierre Poilievre in what he calls a non-campaign style publicly funded video. You be the judge.

That Pierre Poilievre is a kidder eh?

How can the federal employment minister (and this guy knows how to get a job for life with benefits … employment indeed) say this excruciatingly boring video paid for by public funds is not a campaign vehicle.

Goodbye David Letterman (Video)

Letterman in 1982

Letterman in 1982

The last few weeks have been a period of endings.
