A Halloween wish.
As Stephen Harper kicks the CBC while it’s down, I dream of sunshine and puppies.
OK maybe there is a god. I’ve just taken a gander at damning documents from Concordia’s health care provider that show details of how the little politico-miscreant Steven Rosenshein tried to bribe ASEQ – attempting to elicit 25,000 in cold hard cash from them as, an, er, “campaign contribution.” (including a sworn affidavit) Rosenshein and the other disgusting bunch of self-serving liars that seized Concordia’s student union back in 2003 are responsible for many things on campus, and they extend WAY beyond broken campaign promises like free laptops and heated…read more
