    BCF, get the humour in line, please. That headline had me spitting out my coffee! Maybe a “trigger warning” that an “unbelievably hilarious headline coming up. Swallow now!”

    • We need the laughs.

        We sure do! Thanks for that one, though. Priceless. BTW, is it true that Pachi the porkypine has a crush on you?

    Hilarious headline and story. At least the National Post has reporters and editors honest enough to accurately reports a newsworthy story. One wonders if the establishment media (CBC, CTV, Global News; the Star and the Globe) have any honesty to report this story.

    Now I don’t see those that pushed for all this the hardcore fringe left, but they are typical left wing types that seem to hate sports, at least the popular sports that us “hicks and rubes” support. I have to wonder, with none of them showing up to these games, and a general hostility towards athletics, if those on the left really are just about getting the government to spend as much money as possible on things the average person has no use for. Facilities for sports few play, modern public art people just don’t “get”, film festivals and theatre productions no-one would normally ever go see, it is getting more and more bizarre. At least in the 80s and early 90s it seemed like they were just after everyone else to pay for and suffer so they could get access to and cheaper/free things they actually wanted themselves. Now it seems the goal really is to see how much money they can steal from everyone else and laugh while they piss it away.

    100 people, wow our last church supper was better attended.

    I reckon even that number is inflated.

    Sweat your quills out Ontario – how cool is this? Okay, I didn’t know where to post this but we have the “greatest outdoor show on earth” every year! 🙂

    They are not concerned about small attendances because of the “legacy of infrastructure” the government has created. Well just look at the legacy of infrastructure Greece has from its Olympic venues. http://www.theguardian.com/sport/gallery/2014/aug/13/abandoned-athens-olympic-2004-venues-10-years-on-in-pictures
