We should have known it was too good to be true. Harper’s many, many repetitions of his government’s commitment to get all the troops out by July 2011 are well known. I think he may actually have meant it because by these repeated statements he framed the issue so strongly that all Canadians expected – and supported – the withdrawal.
Here’s what he said in an interview with Canwest last January:
Selkirk College Contemporary Music and Technology Instructor Cheryl Hodgehas been nominated for the 2010 Hollywood Music and Media Awards (HMMA) for Best Jazz Song-Indigo.
She will be heading to Hollywood, California, to participate in the Awards that takes place on Thursday, November 18, 2010, at the world famous Kodak Theater Complex.
This is Hodge’s first major award nomination. “I’m very excited!” says Hodge. “Up until now, this has only been a dream! I can’t believe it is actually coming true!”
Selkirk College forward Travis Herlein has been named the British Columbia Intercollegiate Hockey League's Player of the Week for the week ending Sunday, November 14th, the league announced Monday.
Now that I’m back from some well-enjoyed fun in the sun, I am amazed at the number of people who have suggested the biggest story that happened in BC in the past few weeks was the decision by Premier Gordon Campbell to step down. They are wrong.
For those considering issue triage — picking five or six issues to focus on — in the fight to rid the country of the current government, one area that is critical to the outcome is exposing the Harper government’s construction of the national security state.
So there’s probably more than three things you should have every day, but for the well-being of those who are easily overwhelmed, let’s keep it simple.

An injunction to prevent the Sinixt Nation from protesting logging on Perry Ridge in the Slocan Valley has been denied by the B.C. Supreme Court in Vancouver late Friday.
Kaslo’s Sunshine Logging appeared before the court Nov. 5 on “a short leave injunction application to have the blockage removed,” while the Sinixt appeared with counsel in Vancouver to resist the application.
