Last night GC and I went to three events, two of which aren’t actually happening until Friday. I don’t know how I managed to mess up the Google calendar quite so messily. At any rate, we ended up playing checkers at Raw Sugar instead. It was our first visit to this whimsical little coffee shop.
Afterwards we went to our third event on the Google calendar – Ian Tamblyn launching his new CD at Irene’s – and that was actually happening, so we sat back and enjoyed some songs, guitar and dulcimer music.
Today I’m skipping my Thursday Lunch Hour Knitting Club in order to overthrow the Canadian government. I like the way that sounds. But really, I’m just going to a rally on Parliament Hill to support the Coalition.
There’s a lot of confusion about the legitimacy of the Coalition and whether what’s happening is fair and legal. Stephen Harper has been instrumental in promoting and exploiting that confusion. The fact is, the Coalition is all three: legitimate, fair and legal. The Yarn Harlot put aside her knitting yesterday to write a very informative and user-friendly primer about what’s going on. (As of 6:37 this morning, there are 518 comments on that post.)
If you’re in Ottawa and you support the coalition, come on up to the Hill at noon today and help make Canadian history. If you can’t make it to the Hill, you can still show your support by signing the petition.
