Would Napoleon Have Chosen Waterloo?

The Harper/Ambrose Conservatives are gathering in Vancouver for a whoop-up. Seems like an odd place for Tories to gather. Sure it's beautiful, much nicer than any place where they still reign, but it's sort of like Napoleon going back with the boys for a reunion at Waterloo.

Vancouver wasn't Tory-friendly in the last election. The whole coast, including Vancouver Island, sent Tory candidates packing.

I suppose it could have been worse. It could have been the Maritimes but, then again, we know what Tories think of those indolent folks down east.

I'm not sure nature wants the Conservatives out here either. We've been having balmy, sunny weather. It seems that'll end this afternoon. It's going to turn cold and damp and the sunny warmth won't be back until Monday.

Likely they want one last night at the Vancover club.

Just as likely to be this club.

Everyone - I have no idea how that video clip got into this post.

Since it's there I should explain that it has become so intensely hot in India that asphalt roads are melting. People crossing the road find their flip-flops get stuck. A lot of them have to run barefoot across molten asphalt to get out of the way of traffic. Can't be a lot of fun.

Ah, Dana. Numero Cinq Orange, indeed. Memories, memories. I had to sue a contractor who built the high-tech stage but made off without paying his trades. Met a lot of very interesting people in the process.
