Mid-Week Post

Cherry tomatoes not only add flavour to your salad, they up the Zen content, as well.
How awkward... for Justin Trudeau:

Outgoing Senate Internal Economy Committee Chair David Tkachuk told reporters, Wednesday, that Harb owes taxpayers $231,649.07 for improperly claiming living expenses for the past eight years. ...

News of Harb's growing debt puts Liberal leader Justin Trudeau in an awkward position.

Last weekend, in an interview with Global News, Trudeau suggested that Harb's troubles were "an honest mistake or a misunderstanding of the rules."

"For me, there’s a real difference between what Mac Harb is going through and what Senators Duffy and Wallin seem to have on their plate," he said adding that Harb could be allowed back into the Liberal fold once the matter is cleared.

For me but not for thee, eh, Justin? Who took money from schools and charities?

If it quacks like a duck:

On Wednesday morning, Lou Schizas, a radio personality on the John Oakley show on AM640 in Toronto, referred to NDP leader Andrea Horwath as a "whore."

Perhaps Andrea Horwath should not have propped up the corrupt Liberal government, the leader of which she demanded answer questions in an inquiry. Someone might think she was doing favours instead of standing on principle. Oh wait...

We don't have to have the Indian Act:

The federal government is hoping to make it easier for First Nations couples whose marriages break down to divide the matrimonial home and land on reserves equally, but not everyone agrees with the proposed changes.

Currently, provincial laws governing the fair division of assets when marriages fail do not apply on First Nations reserves. The federal Indian Act, which governs most aspects of reserve life, does not address the subject.

Outside of reserves, when a married or common-law couple splits up, the house and belongings can be split 50-50.

But under the Indian Act, on the reserves, only the person issued the band house is in control, which can result in one partner left with nothing.

Bill S-2 aims to allow spouses living both on and off reserves the same rights to claim a share of the family's assets in the event of a marriage breakdown.

I guess it would be pointless to make adults act like adults and fix their marital problems but is there any hope of getting rid of the racist Indian Act that not only separates one group from the rest of Canada but requires a new set of laws to fix what is disjointed and dated?

What? Not meatless Fridays?

The Vancouver Food Policy Council is excited to let you know that the City of Vancouver has proclaimed Monday June 10th, 2013 as Meatless Monday.

Aside from the tremendous gall one possesses to proclaim what food one should not (READ: cannot) eat, raising cattle does not contribute greatly to "greenhouse emissions" whereas a strictly vegetarian diet requires high-quality cropland and is, as a result, not an efficient use of land. And then there's the health benefits of eating moderate amounts of meat- stronger immune systems, muscles, organs and ease with weight loss.

To top it off, meat tastes damn good!

So if you like beef (or chicken), eat your meat on Mondays. Do it for freedom!

And now, explain the NSA scandal to your kids with these books.
