Daily Aggregation: A Valentine’s Cure

daily-aggregation-21. A VALENTINE FOR THE DEAD Missing and murdered aboriginal women will be remembered in marches taking place across the country today. More here.

2. SASKATCHEWAN ER WAIT TIMES ARE THE SECOND WORST IN CANADA Hooray!

3. THE FSIN LOOKS FOR CASH Still no solutions after the feds slashed their funding. Although more casinos might be an idea.

4. ONTARIO’S WHINING CONSERVATIVES LOSE A BYELECTION; BLAME UNIONS Not terribly shocking. It’s pretty obvious that union-bashing politicians work for wealthy business fuckers, not ordinary people, and it’s sad that ordinary people who aren’t super-wealthy fall for it. Don’t be a sucker. Don’t tolerate union-bashing rhetoric.

5. FEDERAL CONSERVATIVES SAY THEIR SELF-SERVING ELECTION LAW CHANGES AREN’T SELF-SERVING Uh huh.

6. CANADA’S LUGE TEAM SAYS RUSSIA FIDDLED WITH THE TRACK TEMP Story here. At least Russia’s luge track didn’t kill anyone.

7. WHAT’S THE MATTER WITH KANSAS? WELL, BIGOTS FOR ONE THING According to this story from a few days ago, it might be/will soon be legal to refuse service to gay couples in Kansas under the guise of, get this, preventing discrimination. Slate has analysis. H/T to Dechene, who e-mailed me this to make me mad. Thanks, Dechene.

8. BUT ON THE BRIGHT SIDE Virginia’s anti-gay marriage law has been overturned by a U.S. federal judge.

9. NO PEACE FOR YOU There’s an impasse in Syrian talks.

10. ITALY IS GOING TO GET A NEW PRIME MINISTER The lucky presumed winner of the recently vacated seat would be the youngest PM in the country’s history.

11. SPAIN IS GOING BACKWARDS ON HUMAN RIGHTS Not a surprise. Countries that want to control women’s bodies can’t have all that much respect for individual autonomy, can they?

12. THERE’S A KILLER PIG VIRUS IN MANITOBA It’s called Porcine Epidemic Diarrhea virus and… hey, that sounds horrible. Keep it away from me.

HAPPY FRIDAY VALENTINE’S DAY! Who’s in love?
