End run around the MSM
I wrote on this site last week about how the MSM had devoted scant coverage to the 8,000-person March for Life in Ottawa and had completely ignored a 1,000-person march in Victoria.
Now, a fellow named John Hetherington has posted a 10-minute "highlight reel" of the Victoria march on YouTube. Here it is. Check out the powerful message from young mother and pro-life activist Colleen Roy, starting at the 7:45 mark.

There is a 40 second video from the Ottawa Sun:

Apparently disgraced David Akin, who recently engaged in a career limiting move by divulging a confidential source (Ian Brodie) to an Ottawa journalism class, considers it "career limiting" to seek restrictions on abortion.
Most likely because his activist pro-abortion colleagues seek to stifle any discussion of the topic on an issue they wish to consistently portray as "settled."
Many Canadian journalists thought marriage was a settled issue too, and see where that one went and is going with polygamy.
Given that Canwest hired Akin after he got turfed by CTV, only ‘career limiting’ moves by journalists are forgivable.

Saying something and believing it are two different things.
They believe marriage and abortion are "settled" insofar as the issues are a one-way ratchet in the direction of destroying the nuclear family.
It probably never occurred to them that polygamous family units are a greater threat to Statism than the traditional nuclear family.

I can almost hear the sound of minds closing whenever somebody says something is ‘settled.'
Comfort in their own little coffins once the brain is shut off an dies, I suppose.

I read a blog post or an article last week about how Ottawa is changing. Political aides are settling down and not partying til all hours of the night like the good old days.
The insinuation was that they were being pressured to get married and have kids by overbearing conservatives. Forget freewill.
The ppg, who used to have their tabs picked up by Liberal aides at closing time, are feeling all alone at D'Arcy McGees at 2am. That is when they aren't getting cut off early for excessive public drunkeness.
Anyone know who wrote it or where it was posted?
