It's brutally cold out there, again. With the wind chill it could feel like minus 40 tonight. The Great Lakes are almost completely frozen.
I'm worried about the homeless and these young trumpeter swans in the harbour...
Who like all the other lake birds now have almost no open water in which to find food.
And as if that Big Chill isn't bad enough;
Then there's the chill you get when you check out Environment Canada's weather page, and come face to face with the icy horror of Harperland.
Because there at the bottom of the page is a link to a new
Which makes the world look like a really scary place...
And is tailored to reinforce Great Strong Leader's message that he can only he can keep us safe.
And if you don't believe that, you can check it out for yourself by clicking on this other ad on the same weather page.
Where it's always raining terrorists.
So Stephen Harper can try to scare Canadians into voting him, and use fear to stir up xenophobia, while he turns us into a police state.
A monstrous place where as the Big Chill slowly drives us crazy, you can't even trust Weather Canada...
But here's the thing eh? Winter may be hell, but unlike Stephen Harper it's 100% Canadian.
It brings out the best in us. I've been moved by the great stories of people helping each other out in the Maritime provinces, after being buried by one massive snow storm after the other.
And I find it hard to believe that people who can survive a Snowmageddon like that one, or the Big Chill, could be frightened an inflated terrorist threat, or scared into submission by a tin pot dictator like Harper.
And I think that's what in the end might save us. The fact that you have to be pretty tough to live in this frozen wasteland...
As beautiful as it may be.
So Canadians don't scare easily, and sooner or later most of them know bullshit when they see or hear it. They definitely don't like being brainwashed with their own money.
And all that, along with the state of the economy, and a desperate desire for change, will be Stephen Harper's downfall.
Oh sure, I know. If you're an optimist in Canada these days you take your life in your hands eh?
Because EVERYBODY hates you.
But what's the alternative? Wallowing in your own misery while freezing your ass off?
No thank you.
So I still say the big red Canada train is coming...
And the dictator will be buried...
