The show, as I recall, mercilessly skewered everyone --including hapless Canadian politicians -- and was often quoted and referred to during Question Period. Proving too much for the faint souls of the CBC, they cancelled the popular show after just 2 seasons.
While this Sunday features is not the like of, nor unfortunately will it ever be, the ilk of This Hour Has Seven Days … its only similarity is that it will cover the politics of the past week, and at times the stories remembered over the past week, will indeed skewer those politicians who purposely try to bamboozle us.
NEVERTHELESS … if YOU have some humour you can share, to be used on Day Seven, please forward it on to me at email@example.com
Now … here as the top stories of the week:
#10 DAN ALBAS: Do you prefer a food guide the focuses on nutrition, portion sizes and diet ... or do you prefer the new direction with advice on how to eat, shop and more?
#9 JOHN FELDSTED: All the money and studies have not bought anyone a spine ... or lit a fire under complacent rear ends in Ottawa
8 FELDSTED: Anyone can pronounce a deal “not good enough”, when they are not accountable for negotiations
#7 FORSETH: We (news media) may shovel the bullshit, but they (government) use front end loaders. Sadly, all governments do this . . . it’s gone on forever
#6 Ian MacLEOD: Even if there is some risk to vaccinations (very very small for most), that, of itself, is the wrong question. More importantly, one has to also look at relative risk
#5 FORSETH: Andrew Wilkinson, along with many of his fellow provincial LIBERAL members, are continually shelling out wads of CASH not to federal Conservatives, but instead to the Federal LIBERAL Party
#4 RICK PETERSON: We have been constructive, offering solutions and, ensuring the perspectives of resource sector working Canadians finally gain a voice
What started out simply as BC Politics and More, is indeed becoming what I hope for … a discussion on political, economic and social issues in British Columbia, and Canada ...thanks for sticking around ... and make this site even better by continuing, or beginning to, share your thoughts and opinions as well.
Last but not least … please pass these stories on to others so more people are aware of them. And if you haven’t already, please join me on Twitter at @AlanForseth
