Halifax prepares for George Bush visit:
U.S. President George W. Bush is expected to visit Halifax next week on his two-day Canadian tour, thanking Atlantic Canadian residents for helping stranded American passengers following the Sept. 11 attacks.
Anti-war groups are hoping to gather 20,000 protesters in Ottawa during Bush’s visit to protest the American occupation of Iraq.
Phillip’s looking for ideas on how to express is displeasure of Bush’s policies. Is it against Canadian law to throw a pie in a foreign diplomat’s face?
From Colin Mochrie as performed on CBC’s This Hour Has 22 Minutes, An Apology To Americans.
I’m sorry we called George Bush a moron. He is a moron, but it wasn’t nice of us to point it out. If it’s any consolation, the fact that he’s a moron shouldn’t reflect poorly on the people of America. After all, it’s not like you actually elected him.
I’m sorry for Alan Thicke, Shania Twain, Celine Dion, Loverboy, that song from Seriff that ends with a really high-pitched long note. Your beer. I know we had nothing to do with your beer, but we feel your pain.
I rarely post political entries, and I don’t think I’ve ever posted anything about American politics; but this got my attention:
Canada’s Vote: No Bush!:
Join a growing group of Canadians that want to prevent the re-election of George W. Bush this November 2nd.
Our mission is simple: to provide a forum for Canadians to show their support for the election of a new United States government.
