Round Up I for the Morning Before a Long Weekend

A Health Sciences Centre sounds like a good idea to me. If you are having trouble finding the (taxpayer) money to sustain it, why not get rid of some of your Political Correctness faculties? Do a study of which faculties actually produce graduates that get jobs in their field immediately, and by that I mean jobs that actually produce something valuable, not jobs that are dependent entirely on more government (taxpayer) funding. Kinda like this.

Only in Canada would confronting a thief caught in the act of stealing your stuff and who is threatening to kill you, BY THROWING SPICE AT HIM, result in a charge of assault on the person protecting himself and his property and the perp being released because there was supposedly no evidence.
"Polapady was charged with assault causing bodily harm, assault with a weapon and administering a noxious substance (the spices)."
"There are many scenarios when you’re not being a vigilante and you want to respond in a lawful manner,” says Polapady’s lawyer Calvin Barry, a former Crown prosecutor. But the laws governing self-protection are unclear, which is why bill C-26 is important, he said.

Now in second reading, the bill aims to expand the citizen’s power of arrest and clarify the rules around defense of home and property. It has been dubbed the “Lucky Moose” bill after the Chinatown store belonging to David Chen, who was charged in 2009 with assault and forcible confinement after he chased down and tied up a shoplifter. The charges were later dropped."
And our leftards keep harping about the supposed "drop" in crime. Thank God for the Harper majority.

Hah!! I wonder how much money this will raise for our Grandmother's Corpse?

CBC moves to add ads to radio service
"Ads will not run on CBC Radio One - the English news and information radio network available on both the AM and FM dials - but will be added to FM music stations Radio Two and Espace Musique. CBC sports coverage, especially of hockey, will be maintained, Stewart said.

The network applied Wednesday to the Canadian Radio-television and Telecommunications Commission for permission to run ads on CBC Radio Two.

Analogue television signals will be shut down."
At least it may teach them a lesson that the private sector knows well. Offer something people actually want or advertisers will not pony up. After all, they're looking for an audience. Competition from new media will be pretty fierce, though. Of course, they could always reinstate porn flicks.

So, the thief is let go and the victim is arrested, for attempting to defend himself and his property. Madness!
