Knowing Trudeau it was probably some variation on "I'm doing my best, aw come on don't look at me like that."

She certainly has more self-control than I suspect I'd have in the same situation, considering.

If you yell at someone loud enough to cause hearing damage, does it count as assault?

I mean, it probably does, but it can't hurt to make sure.

the current crop of politicians worldwide just seem to keep defaulting to the same shit.

"this is a global, critical, and serious problem WITH CLEAR SOLUTIONS that threatens to kill millions, if not billions, and completely destabilize our society and maybe even TOPPLE IT in the next 30-80 years."

"yeah but right now i have these other things"

"yeah but this is bigger than the economy and the right now, and uh, everything else"

"yeah but China is polluting the most"
-OR, if not US
"yeah but the US and China are polluting the most"
-OR, if China

There's something especially repugnant about people in power taking part in protests and marches and demonstrations like this. They're in the best position to help! Who the fuck are they appealing to? Just go back to your office and Do Your God Damned Job!

The thing about leadership is that sometimes doing your job is to shut up and listen (or, as is more typically the case, making it look like you're listening).

It may be symbolic, but symbolism and ceremony matter. Do any of us really think Scheer avoided all those marches because he's too busy beavering away in his office "doing his job" carefully crafting public policy to benefit Canadians?

I'm trying to keep tabs on the potential for school board labour disruption here in Ontario (support staff already started a work-to-rule campaign today), and while googling for updates I noticed this explainer for parents, from Chatelaine of all places (!), which is refreshingly sensible and labour-friendly.

Tis' a funny old world.

"You know what? You should cut your turban off," he said. "You'll look like a Canadian."

"Oh, I think Canadians look like all sorts of people," Singh replied. "That's the beauty of Canada."

"Yeah, but..." the man said — before Singh cut him off.

"That's okay, I don't agree, sir," he said.

"In Rome, you do as the Romans do," the man said.

"Hey, but this is Canada, you can do whatever you like," Singh said, then walked away.

"All right, take care, eh?" the man called after him. "I hope you win."


There's a joke in there about Canada even having polite racists.

That Rome vs Canada line though. :D

Look at Singh. Or more accurately, look at what appears to be an attempt to not have his muscles rip his suit apart hulk-style.

One thing I really like about Singh's reply is that after he gave shitbag the one chance to reply, he just rode him down afterwards instead of giving him more chances to draw this horseshit out or try something else to trap him, "No, you wouldn't. And I don't have time for your bullshit."

The Grassy Narrows rep to Singh's right was struggling not to crack up as he watched the pwnage unfold.

I just listened to CSB diverge into politics for ten minutes in response to the Trudeau 'Enthusiastic Cosplay' situation and it was glorious. https://superbestfriendcast.libsyn.com/ ... wn-content 2h10m
