HAPPY TUESDAY! It’s my first Six In The Morning post as an alternative media intern for the Dog Blog. Let’s hope it all goes well, as it should, because lots of crazy stuff has happened since I tucked myself into bed last night. Lets get started!!
1 BAYONETS AND HORSES If you missed it, the third and final U.S. presidential debate aired last night. It looks like Obama won, and not just because of his firm stance on foreign policy. No, his turn of phrases had a major hand in his win.
2 MEDALS FOR ANTI-ABORTION ACTIVISTS This is crazy. A Saskatchewan Tory MP nominated an anti-abortionist activist, who is currently in jail, for the Queen’s Diamond Jubilee Medal. And guess what! She got it.
3 MCGUINTY SAYS “NO WAY” Well, sort of. Ontario premier Dalton McGuinty says he won’t challenge Justin Trudeau for the Federal Liberal leadership. Duh.
4 BRITISH COLUMBIANS HOLD GIANT RALLY AGAINST NORTHERN GATEWAY PIPELINE AT THE PROVINCIAL LEGISLATURE Things are falling into Christy Clark’s lap nicely.
5 NDP MP TAKES LEAVE OF ABSENCE After being removed from an Air Canada flight for being too drunk to fly this weekend, Romeo Saganash is taking some time off to deal with personal issues.
6 WE’RE IN HIV DENIAL A new survey finds people in Saskatchewan don’t know HIV is a problem in their community.
If whales could talk… this is what they would sound like. A beluga whale at the National Marine Mammal Foundation in California mimmicks scientists’ speech.
