quote [ The Rena, a 47,000 tonne cargo ship, grounded on the Astrolabe reef off Tauranga last Wednesday. It had been leaking oil into the ocean, and was listing at up to 19 degrees to starboard. ]
Basically they farted away 5 clear days while the tried to wish the problem away, now the weather's gone to shit and the oil, and containers, are hitting the beach. Oh, and they are using a dispersant that is banned in the UK and restricted in other countries.

quote [ The new law would allow copyright owners to ask for a six-month suspension of the internet accounts of those who repeatedly infringe by sharing protected material. ]
Arguably better than S92a but the way it, and several other amendments etc have been rushed through, unannounced, under urgency, using the CERA (Christchurch Earthquake Recovery Act) as political cover is anti-democractic.
During the debate one idiot MP likened the Internet to Skynet.

Edit: Due to popular demand: How the CTF study on Canadian First Nations Politicians making more than the PM of Canada is utter bullshit.
quote [ INAC transfer payments to First Nations aren’t guilt money or welfare. It’s not atonement for past wrongdoings, or a charitable donation. It’s payment on a contract. ]
I hope new title clears everything up for everyone. My thinking was, with the other article being 3 pgs back, the use of a similar title/identical graphic would help orient you. Gosh, sorry.
The Canadian Taxpayers Federation are a pack of right wing tools who have decided they speak for everyone in Canada who pays taxes.

So here's the thing, my family and I just moved to here to Dunedin and I was wondering if any of you degenerates lived here. That's it.

quote [ A St. Eustache man with a distaste for winter has found a novel way to get rid of the snowbank on his street: he's put it up for sale on Ebay, the Internet auction site ]
Link to the ebay auction entry in extended, plus a bonus bad translation by yours truly.

quote [ The Afghan war is not one conflict but three: a guerrilla war, a development war and a communications war. Canada is gaining ground in the first and slowly winning the second.
We’re losing the third. ]
I know this focuses on the CF/Canada but I thought it quite interesting in terms of it's scope and how it focuses on the mess that Canada's New Government™ is making of it's communications.[politics] [by Ronin.ca@11:33pmGMT] [+10 Underrated] [152 comments]
