No Time Like The Present
We’ve known all along that this was going to be a political decision made by Prime Minister Harper and Premier Clark. The panel’s recommendation is not a surprise, but it’s still a sad day for Canadian democracy when more than a thousand regular citizens go out of their way to put opposition on record and are then completely ignored.

Charges Laid In Runners Hit & Run
Surrey RCMP have announced charges have finally been laid in the tragic hit and run accident of two female joggers in South Surrey a year ago at the intersection of 32nd Avenue and Johnston Road.
Surrey RCMP are assisting the IHIT team at the scene where a body was discovered at 11:30 Tuesday in the NW corner of Surrey above the Bridgeview district. There is now confirmation the victim is Surrey's 24th homicide of the year. A record number of homicides for B.C.'s second largest city.

The Canucks defeated the dreaded Chicago Blackhawks on their home ice last night 3-2. Great way to end a so so road trip.
Eddie Lack has played a lot of hockey in Chicago over the last couple of years but it's safe to say he hasn't had as big a victory in the Windy City as the one he collected on Friday.
In fact, he probably hasn't had as magnificent a performance in this city as the one he turned in tonight either.
The former backstop for the AHL's Chicago Wolves stopped 24 of 26 shots he faced through regulation and overtime and turned aside seven of eight shootout attempts to lift the Canucks to an improbable 3-2 come-from-behind win over the Blackhawks.
The Canucks return home on Sunday to host the Winnipeg Jets on Sunday before breaking for the holidays.
