Sal says that what you need to know is that the Sovereignty Act is just a smoke screen to hide the Smith UCP’s total lack of governing ability and keep the right wing wackos happy. Sal says just have a look at that vapid gaze she always has.

Sal says that Phil sent a question:

If Horseshoe Indianapolis and every other track can get their handle figures posted within days of the meet end where are the Century Mile handle figures.

Is the Horse Racing Alberta abacus broken.

Is this the kind of transparency that Albertans can expect from the Smith UCP government.

Kenney, never one to shy away from some political analysis, added that he was “concerned that our democratic life is veering away from ordinary prudential debate towards a polarization that undermines our bedrock institutions and principles.

“From the far-left we see efforts to cancel our history, delegitimize our historically grounded institutions and customs, and divide society dangerously along identity lines,” he wrote.

“And from the far-right we see a vengeful anger and toxic cynicism which often seeks to tear things down, rather than build up and improve our imperfect institutions.”

With Watson fresh off his 11-game suspension and still facing two active civil suits, Buzbee told The Athletic that he will attend the game with “bells and whistles on.” He invited the 25 women, though some have said they won’t attend. But the message those attending reportedly want to send Watson is, “You think you put us behind you, but we are still here.”

Sports Illustrated – Coleman – Plaintiffs Plan to Attend Deshaun Watson’s Return in Houston, per Report

Sal says that the hockey fans in Calgary are the dumbest fucks in the world to give the Turtle a standing ovation after he and Johnny Schmockey gave the city the middle finger last summer after being no-shows in their playoff defeat by the Oilers. Let’s hope that the Houston fans remember that Deshaun gave them the middle finger a couple of years ago and boo the bastard every chance they get.

Sal says that the Houston fans may be conflicted as they know their team’s tanking for a higher daft choice.

In 1994, the former Reform party used its first filibuster to hold up passage of a vote to kill a process to redraw boundaries every 10 years. At the time, Harper, then a Reform MP, attacked the move and said that the Liberal government should at least cap the number of MPs at 295.

National Post – Press – House of Commons votes to add 30 more MPs to Parliament Hill

Canadians and Albertans need to remember that it was the turncoat, Stephen Harper, who added 30 unnecessary hogs to the House of Commons feed trough.
