Oh, my -- this is just precious. Regarding the Great Canadian Debate (more about which later), we have Olaf keeping us up to speed:
So, the first debate in the Great Canadian Debate is up. In it, Chris and Dirk argue whether or not Canada should adopt the UN Declaration on the Rights of Indigenous Peoples.
Um ... huh? I could have sworn ...
Hello all. Sorry, I've been derelict in my posting duties here, as a result of the Great Canadian Debate experiment, which, despite how little we have to show for it so far, has been surprisingly labour intensive. Anyways, things are moving along, however slowly, and here's an update for all you paying attention...
The first round
The "First Round" of Debates, which we hope to start posting next week, are here in no particular order:
Must a person be in favour of the Afghan war in order to "support our troops"?
Red Tory - NO; Richard Evans - YES
Well, OK, he did say "in no particular order" but, apparently, Red Tory finally ran out of patience as Dick Evans simply couldn't get his shit together.
But what's particularly amusing is that Richard Evans was invited to participate in the first place, given that one of the debate's organizers is one "Paladiea," who Dick lists on the front page of his own blog as a member of what he terms "The Looney Bin".
How to win friends and influence people, Dick Evans-style. You can't make this stuff up.
