Return of Rockfish!

Welcome back!
This blog has been in a self-induced slumber, but is, like that ol' SCTV intro, back on the air.
Life, it seems, continues whether we blog or not.
And unfortunately, Stephen Harper's madness -- the angriest white man in faux-biz -- continues unabated. His omnibus bills continue to flood parliament with thousands of cuts and significant program attacks, showing him to have told the truth when he said: "After I'm finished with Canada, you won't recognize the place."

We've got 3 byelections on Monday, which hopefully will produced some surprising results. It is exciting to hear that Calgary could be a horse race, and Victoria is heating up. I have heard little about who will be buying the orange juice for Durham -- and considering that is the only one of the ridings where someone quit amidst controversy, that is disappointing.
In the meantime, here are a few interesting links:

Harper confidante tells social conservatives they just need to change their message to get what they want.

Harper's heavy-handed tone and the Conservatives' boldness in being bullies needs some pushback - Michael Harris, iPolitics.

Special interest groups (ie. anyone who has nothing to do with the crooked Conservative party) need to be ready for more cuts ahead - G&M.

I am touching base with you in order to try and coordinate an interview with you for your blog in the near future. David Bertschi wants to engage the grassroots of the party in order to rebuild the Liberal party of Canada from the bottom up and, in this modern age, he recognizes the important role the online community plays in this process.

Please let me know what day is best to schedule an interview and we can coordinate accordingly. We can easily arrange a phone interview, interview through email or even try to schedule a face to face interview.
