Six In The Morning: Vote Fraud, Guns, Trades, Plummer And Santorum

1 ELECTION FRAUD? Did the federal Conservatives deliberately suppress voter turnout in ridings across Canada in the election that gave them their majority? Did the Conservatives hire call centres to send Liberal and NDP voters to incorrect polls? Former staff from one call centre say yes, they did.

2 FALLING THROUGH THE CRACKS A Saskatoon shelter is doing its best but there are young men who need a place to crash that it’s just not equipped to help.

3 WHO WANTS TO READ ABOUT A SCHOOL SHOOTING IN THE U.S. ON A MONDAY MORNING? Here you go! So far, nobody’s dead. UPDATE: One dead.

4 REPUBLICANS CONTINUE TO CONSIDER THE MERITS OF A COMPLETE LUNATIC Rick Santorum is completely and dangerously bananas, and he could end up running for president. Wow. America sucks sometimes.

5 IN CASE YOU MISSED IT It’s not today’s news, but the group Anonymous says it hacked the Ontario police chiefs’ website as payback for the organization’s support of the Conservative domestic spying legislation (i.e. the “let’s pretend it’s about protecting children from molesters” crime bill).

6 TRADE DEADLINE ZOW! Will the Columbus Blue Jackets trade captain Rick Nash? Will they keep him, then trade him in the off-season? What will Columbus DOOOOO??? They’re my favourite team and they’re TERRIBLE! More trade deadline coverage here at a website called “TSN” which I’d never heard of until today.

BONUS: THE OSCARS! HOLY SHIT, THEY HAPPENED! And Canadian Christopher Plummer won the Best Supporting Actor trophy for his role in Beginners, a sweet and gently funny romance about an emotionally stunted son, the woman who likes him, his funny dog and his elderly gay dad who came out of the closet after the death of his wife (the dad’s wife, not the son’s wife). It’s a swell movie with a good heart. The trailer is below. And here are the other Oscar winners.

  1. I haven’t seen the movie, but I’m assuming that “the woman who likes him” is applicable.
    Good on ya, Christopher Plummer!

  2. Plural amended to the correct singular.

    One could also say “a woman played by Melanie Laurent, who is a much better actor than Ewan McGregor.”

  3. #1 I would like to place an ad in you classifieds section please.
