Of course. It’s FOX News what else would we expect, REAL news? Puhlease.
Canadian Paper The Globe & Mail Endorses...
While I recognize that the Globe & Mail has previously endorsed political parties I don’t agree with it. In my mind unless all of the other parties are Nazi or Stalinist parties a news agency has no business endorsing a candidate. News agencies are supposed to be as unbiased as possible, and endorsing the Conservative party comes with a WHOLE lot of a other biases that cannot be...
Gay Man Bashed at King Subway Station →
Well this is a little alarming considering that this is the subway station I use most frequently. While I don’t worry about being bashed very often (especially around where I live and in the King and Yonge area) I do worry about what would happen if someone were to bash me. I already know that I am not one to back down from a fight, through various situations which warranted force to...

Harper Claims He Won't Reopen Same-sex Marriage -...
Stephen Harper has stated that along with abortion he has no plans to reopen the same-sex marriage issue within Canada should he win a majority on May 2nd, 2011. What Steven Harper did not mention, and has been silent on despite my repeated attempts to contact both the Conservative party and his people for a statement (and through multiple channels), was whether or not he or the party would back...

Even though Queers Against Israeli Apartheid (QuAIA) have said they will not be participating in the parade Toronto city council may still deny Pride Toronto funding. The deferred vote is expected to come June 14th less than two weeks before Pride Toronto kicks off the week long event (and also Toronto biggest money making event bringing in over $100 million for the city) and likely not enough...

It should also be noted that the Green party was the first political party in Canada to support same-sex marriage back in the mid 1990’s.

So Foursquare day is here. I just signed up for Foursquare yesterday as my friend has been organizing what is sure to be a wicked foursquare day, 4/16, in the 416 (That’s Toronto for those who don’t know the area code). You can attend the event if you wish to as it is open. It will be at the Firkin on King St. and loads of sponsors have contributed prizes to be won if you check in...

I am actually astounded that people are being turned away from rally’s because they might have ties to other parties. Even if they do have ties to those parties why can’t someone go to hear what the Prime Minister has to say. People should be as informed as possible before deciding to vote. Look at the people who the Star interviewed along the Finch line to see what happens when...
