Campaign Diary, Day 21: Newsflash! Quebecers are Earthlings, too!

"We aren't going to fool around with this. We have been very clear on that, and that's a major point. It's the future of the planet and the future of Quebec because we're on the planet too." - Bloc Quebecois Leader Gilles Duceppe, reacting to Conservative Leader Stephen Harper's plan to scrap the Kyoto accord. [Via CP.]

I'm glad that's been cleared up.

Newsflash! Pot Pomade all the Rage!

Just a couple of weeks ago, Marc Boris St-Maurice, leader of the Marijuana Party, told the Globe and Mail: "I don't have time to smoke pot during this damn election."

On Thursday, he told the press: "Whether you're carrying marijuana because you think it looks pretty or because you found it or because perhaps you like to rub it on your hair at night because it smells nice - none of that is relevant. Whether it's for medical use or other use, none of that is relevant. The law is bad and so the offence must be taken out."

Sounds like Mr. St-Maurice has found some free time in his busy electoral schedule...
