In less than two months, we’ll be seeing a big parade, a lot of green hair and plenty of Irish whisky. The whole world seems to become just a little Irish as cities across Canada, and around the globe, celebrate St. Patrick’s Day.

Thanks RossK.... but what do you think PostMedia is going to do to top the Irish and Whiskey mix up along with Robbie Burns and St. Patricks?

Two weeks ago they published a Letter in the Vancouver Sun and the Province saying that Active Pass has been used by Oil Tankers for Hundred Years....

Last week, in another Letter to the Editor, a pro leaning BC Liberal voter raised cane over the BC NDP's promise to eliminate an Incumbent Government's use of advertising ($15 million this year) for Partisan Purposes because NO province in Canada has gone down that route. We've go news for them, Ontario was the First Province to do so, and very effectively!.... and the Editors in Toronto (PostMedia) didn't even spot that one.
