  • Broken Canada Action Plan at SMU.

    [image-1] Who’s responsible? Stephen Harper, PMO’s office, fax 613-941-6900. Remarks: Two weeks ago we found a Canada Action Plan sign in front of Ahern Manor had toppled in the wind, and now here’s another in front of Saint Mary’s University split in two and tossed unceremoniously to the ground. Does this indicate that the economic stimulus heralded by the Harper-vetted signs is in chaotic collapse? We say yes. If Harper can’t maintain his signs, how can he keep the country in check?

  • Economic Action Plan is upside down.

    [image-1] Who’s responsible? Stephen Harper, fax 613-941-6900. Remarks: Earlier this year, the prime minister’s office---on direct orders from Stephen Harper---meticulously tracked the placement of 8,500 Economic Action Plan signs around the country, complete with reports and photos. So, when this sign in front of Ahern Manor on Gottingen Street tumbled over in the wind, we thought we better alert Harper himself, so he can scurry over and right it. Problem is, we can’t phone Harper; his office only accepts email and faxes. Perhaps stimulus money should have go to a new phone line in the PMO.

    [image-1] “When I talk to my students about sustainability at SMU, I tell them that compared to when I came here seven years ago, we’ve done wonders,” says Jeremy Lundholm, a biology instructor who is also part of Saint Mary’s University’s Environmental Studies Program. “They weren’t even recycling back then. Since then, they’re taking sustainability seriously---they’re putting money into it, they’ve switched the boilers from oil to natural gas, the student association is the first in Canada to have a sustainability program. I tell my students they should feel good about coming here. So this feels like a betrayal.” *This*
