UPDATE: Hat tip to Warren Kinsella for linking to my mention of iamnotafraid.ca ... its point number 4 in this post.
Greetings from rainy Hinton, Alberta where I am overnighting enroute to Kelowna with a U-Haul full of my parents' stuff.
Another round of catching up is in order, so here goes.
First, I want to pay my respects to the late Scobey Hartley. Scobey wore many hats... oilman, philanthropist, party volunteer and fundraiser, and, most importantly, family man.
I had the priviledge of knowing Scobey Hartley in his role with the PC Party of Alberta. When I was President of the PC Youth, I had no stronger supporter than Scobey Hartley. When I made my rather public departure from that role, Scobey was my staunchest defender. He was always willing to listen when you needed to bitch about something, and offer advice when you needed it.
Scobey Hartley passed away this week at the age of 75. He has touched the lives of many people in many ways. I extend my deepest condolences to his family, and my sincere thanks also to his family for sharing him with us.
Second, anybody who thinks Prime Minister Stephen Harper will not win a majority in the elections is sniffing glue. Not only does he lead a government that is delivering on their promises... not only is he steadfast and vigilant in the face of a terror threat... but he is also an animal lover.
How could you NOT vote for this guy?
Third, as I write this i'm watching the rerun of today's federal Question Period. Belinda Stronach just got up to ask a question.
Not only does she sound like crap, but she looks like crap. Perhaps her totally cool Prada handbag with her totally cool makeup was left at the Chateau Laurier.
Fourth, back to the terror thing. You all need to visit http://www.iamnotafraid.ca and show your support. The bad guys can't win if we fight back.
More news to come from Victoria this weekend...
