Sports Columnist Bruce Dowbiggen

Bruce writes for The Globe and Mail.
He used to be on the radio, and perhaps still is, but not in these parts.
His column usually hits a couple of nails on the head. Since I'm not a hockey fan (never was and never will be....oh, if they cut the violence by 100% I could be persuaded to watch) his comments about the game are not of great interest to me.
Remarks about media, television, behaviour, Olympics, etc are interesting, and the least I do is scan his column.
He is much better in print than on air. On air, he comes across as a know-it-all smarty pants, and the content gets lost in the delivery.
Worth reading, from a sociological perspective.

From the Man Who Promised Honour and Integrity.....

Here is where you can write a cheque to your friends and family, with the dreaded Tory logo on the upper left corner.

This government, and this Prime Minister, have no shame.

A few ......

Reports early this morning that one of VANOC's keenest supporters has died.

JACK POOLE was part of the Olympic dream for Vancouver from its earliest moment.

He'll be missed by many people in the organization.


The Prime Minister, as well as not honouring Parliament's longest-serving Speaker, has told Canadians that he doesn't watch Canadian news on TV because "he doesn't want to see himself on tv."

There are a lot of things that we could say, but none of them should be in the public domain.

Once a small man, always a small man

Once again, Prime Minister Harper has shown what a small man he is.

Yesterday in the House, all party leaders rose to congratulate Speaker Peter Milliken on his long service to Parliamanet.

Oh, no. Mr Harper didn't.

How petty.
