Credit Check: Ubought it, Usell it

+5 Megaphone has an excellent first-person account of “paranoid schizophrenia.”:http://www.megaphonemagazine.com/content/home_myself_one_woman’s_account_how_she_learned_cope_her_mental_illness.html

-10 Translink is pissed that students are selling their U-Passes on Craigslist. It’s not the selling that angers them – because, so what. The person selling it paid for it and only one person can use it – it’s that it was built into the system that many people would pay for it and NOT USE IT. Getting people to ride busses is not the business that Translink is in.

-5 The Death of Mainstream Media. The CBC reports that Canadian singer Allison Crowe is turned away from the UK for not having the right permits without mentioning that Canada has the exact same system.

+5 Even Gregor Robertson wants to have high—-speed rail to Seattle. Although, he may change his mind and advocate high speed cars with a small lane for busses.

Today: -5 This Year: +39

    Interesting. I’ve not heard of Canada demanding artists and academics provide fingerprints, retina scans and other biometrics. Nor have I heard of Canada requiring all artists and such visitors to have bank savings of $1500 for a minimum of three months prior to entry. It’d also be shocking news to learn that Canada requires jazz clubs, and concert halls to register with the Canuck equivalent of the Home Office and swear to monitor the movements of artists visiting Canada. And so on. If the country does impose those restrictions, then the protest certainly should include Canada’s laws. Where do you find the regulations that you say are the “exact same” in Canada as the UK’s new laws?
