Ramirez! (and a bit of News From The North)

PS - did you hear that there is no government in Canada? No, they didn’t shut the doors to save money. The PM kicked out their Parliament so they couldn’t give him the old toss.

Canadian Prime Minister Stephen Harper won approval to suspend the country’s legislature for more than seven weeks in a bid to stave off a challenge from opposition parties seeking to bring down his government.

Harper, re-elected in October, told reporters that Governor General Michaelle Jean, the country’s de facto head of state, agreed to his request to close Parliament until Jan. 26. The government’s first order of business will be a budget scheduled for Jan. 27, Harper said, calling on the opposition to work with his administration on a “stimulus” package for the country’s ailing economy.

“The opposition criticism is ‘we have to focus on the economy immediately’ and today’s decision will give us an opportunity to focus on the economy,” Harper told reporters outside the governor general’s residence in Ottawa today. “It is critical for the three parties to work together on the decisions that need to be made with respect to the budget.”

The main opposition Liberals agreed Dec. 1 to form a coalition with the New Democratic Party in a bid to accelerate a stimulus package for the economy and oust the Harper government. The separatist Bloc Quebecois wouldn’t be part of the government though agreed to help it pass any legislation deemed matters of confidence. All three opposition leaders say they’re still committed to defeating Harper when Parliament resumes.

I want to take this seriously, because Canada is our good neighbor to the north. But it does seem like this move will certainly give all their big shots a nice long holiday. If this happened anywhere other than Canada, I’d think it was some kind of junta.

Not that very many people ever read this far down, but this blog was the creation of Allan Kelly and his friend Vilmar. Vilmar moved on to his own blog some time ago, and Allan ran this place alone until his sudden and unexpected death partway through 2006. We all miss him. A lot. Even though he is gone this site will always still be more than a little bit his. We who are left to carry on the BMEWS tradition owe him a great debt of gratitude, and we hope to be able to pay that back by following his last advice to us all:
  1. Keep a firm grasp of Right and Wrong
  2. Stay involved with government on every level and don't let those bastards get away with a thing
  3. Use every legal means to defend yourself in the event of real internal trouble, and, most importantly:
  4. Keep talking to each other, whether here or elsewhere
It's been a long strange trip without you Skipper, but thanks for pointing us in the right direction and giving us a swift kick in the behind to get us going. Keep lookin' down on us, will ya? Thanks.

Oh, and here's some kind of visitor flag counter thingy. Hey, all the cool blogs have one, so I should too. The Visitors Online thingy up at the top doesn't count anything, but it looks neat. It had better, since I paid actual money for it.
