Six In The Morning: Stewart Vs. Beck, Khadr, Labour, Twitter

1 FORMER CHILD SOLDIER SENTENCED AFTER SKETCHY TRIAL AND COERCED CONFESSION Omar Khadr’s getting eight years, seven of which will probably be served in Canada.

2 HAIL TO THE CHIEF Larry Hubich was re-elected president of the Saskatchewan Federation of Labour at this weekend’s annual SFL convention. Hubich, a five-term leader of the SFL who had previously always run unopposed, was challenged by Tom Graham from the Canadian Union of Public Employees. Everybody’s still friends though.  The convention was a huge success, with the best turnout in its 55 year history.

3 GRAFFITI ARTISTS KILLED BY TRAIN Awful.

4 FOR ONE DAY, SANITY WINS I’m taking pleasure in the fact the Jon Stewart/Stephen Colbert Rally To Restore Sanity And/Or Fear had a better turnout than Glenn Beck’s evil march. Polls suggest that tomorrow Americans will elect the party that wants to take away their health care and protect tax cuts to the super-rich.

5 BUT THAT WAS THEN, THIS IS NOW Labour leaders in the United States are worried Republicans are going to kick the shit out of them if they take control of Congress and the Senate. Gee, really?

6 REMEMBER THAT ROB FORD GUY TORONTO ELECTED MAYOR? His campaign team created and maintained a fictional Twitter persona to protect Ford from scandal. Hahaha, fun times ahead for Toronto journalists.

Also: No word yet on CFS. In case you’re wondering.

  1. @Manganese,

    True, but really the American people are being lied to on every side. No one has the balls to tell them the truth: you are screwed. The government has been spending too much and won’t cut the military or raise taxes. Until that is dealt with the rest is just short sighted ideology. The USA national ‘credit card’ will soon be max out and then the sh!t will hit the fan.

  2. I agree, but really, grown men and women=–Do they REALLY need politicians to tell them the truth to know the truth? I remember a movement to ignore all politicians in the 90s, but then I think people got lonely, so they chose to reinvest faith in politicians, which is always a stupid bonehead move. Grain of salt.

    Thing about the USA is the two-party system: it’s like, vote them out cuz they suck, re-elect them 4 years later cuz the others guys aren’t doing it and we’re ignoring how bad they sucked before. Pity.
