World’s largest Pysanka in Vegreville, Alberta. Whenever I see it it reminds me of a girlfriend who didn’t believe it existed. So I took her there and she just said, ‘well it’s kind of small’. You can’t win with some people.

Prime Minister Stephen Harper’s wife, Laureen, was briefly interrupted during a speech at an online cat video festival in Toronto Thursday night after a university activist demanded she take a stance on a subject she considered to be much more serious.
She was just beginning her brief remarks ahead of Just for Cats: Internet Cat Video Festival at the TIFF Bell Lightbox cinema when 21-year-old student activist Hailey King began shouting from the crowd.
“Raising awareness about cat welfare is a good look for your husband’s upcoming campaign strategy,” King said as security rushed over to escort her from the building. “Don’t you think supporting government action on missing and murdered indigenous women in this country would be a better look?”
Harper, who initially attempted to dismiss King’s comments by speaking over her, did stop to address the young women directly.
“We’re raising money for animals tonight. If you’d like to donate to animals, we’d love to take your money,” Harper said. “That’s [missing women] a great cause, perhaps another night. Tonight we’re here for homeless cats.”

This isn’t a real country anymore.

WHEREAS these principles are fundamental in considering the solemnization of marriage;
The current hetero-only language of the Alberta Marriage Act will get replaced this spring by something more tolerant, that explicitly recognizes same sex marriages. At least according to what the Premier is now saying.
The obnoxious preface was added by the Klein government when they saw that same sex marriages were coming down the pipe in Ontario, and in Federal Law which happened in 2005 and 2006.
Also, in the same legislation update they will make it easier for trans people to change their birth certificates.Tweet

Finnish stamp by artist Tom of Finland. That’s interesting, and probably not something you would see in North America.
Probably not going to be any middle ground on licking the back of that.
