A message from Chris…

“This election represents a choice between the past and the future. If we elect one more Liberal, one more Conservative, or one more New Democrat, we change nothing. On the other hand, if we make history and elect Canada’s first Green Member of Parliament, we change Canadian politics forever. This Monday, March 17th, I would be proud to have your support and your vote.”

New Job

Started a new job today. It’s very time consuming, and will continue to be at least for the first few months. The quantity and depth of my posts will likely be affected. I’ll do my best to keep contributing in a meaningful way, but just wanted to give you faithful a head’s up.

Canadian Bloggers Threatened

“The threat of lawsuits…might turn the Canadian political blogger into an endangered species.” The National, CBC, Thursday August 16th, 2007

The below news story aired on CBC The National last night, and takes a look at how the legal climate in Canada is already contributing to the “chilling” of free speech, and eventually may even force companies like Google and Wikipedia to block their sites in Canada. I’d elaborate on what I think of all this, but the last time I did that I got sued (a suit which I am currently defending). Michael Geist, one of the interviewees in the piece, is named on the same lawsuit as myself.
