Brigadier, R.I.P.

From, A Day in the LifeToronto Police have charged a man with "[d]angerous operation of a vehicle causing bodily harm [and f]ailing to stop at the scene of an accident causing bodily harm." [CTV, Hit and run kills a horse, injures Toronto cop]:
Police have arrested a man after a hit-and-run accident sent a police officer from the mounted unit to hospital and critically injuring his horse named Brigadier, leading to other officers euthanizing the horse.

Eyewitnesses say a car traveling along Lawrence Avenue struck the horse and the mounted officer, and then drove away.

"There was an officer lying on the ground and several officers around him and he looked calm and he was about six feet away from his horse and there were several officers around him as well," Jane Evans said.

The officer suffered neck, back and rib injuries, but none were considered to be life-threatening. His horse suffered a different fate.

A written statement from Toronto Police says Brigadier was "suffering from massive traumatic injuries (and was) euthanized by officers at the scene."

According to the Toronto Star and the Toronto Police, Brigadier was the first horse put down due to an injury sustained in the line of duty. The last images I saw on the news tonight were of an injured horse being held down by several officers, until presumably, the decision was made to put the horse down.

This is the second incident involving the injury of a Toronto Police horse in a week. Last Sunday, Trooper, another police horse, was attacked by two dogs, one of which was believed to be a pit bull.

Question to you, does Toronto need police officers on horses? I mean, the what-ifs suggest that had there been no horse, and say a police cruiser instead, there would have been no hit-and-run and likely no dog attack.

The details out of the media outlets seem sketchy at best of what occurred Friday night in the case of the horse being hit by a car - some say the accused deliberately targeted the officer and horse, other suggest it sped away after being pulled over.

I've seen the police horses on patrol quite often and during crowd control, and they seem very effective. The police officers are carried quickly and with agility through crowds and city streets that an officer in a car or on foot could not match. The horse's stamina and size also adds to their effectiveness in crowd control - who'd attack a horse?

I'd like to hear what you think.

[I found the picture of Brigadier at Anne's blog, A Day in the Life. There are many other pictures of Brigadier there as well.]

Don Knotts, July 21, 1924 - February 24, 2006

Actor and comedian, Don Knotts, known for roles as Mayberry deputy sheriff Barney Fife on The Andy Griffith Show, and Three's Company's Ralph Furley, has died. From CBC:
Don Knotts, an American actor known best for playing the bumbling Deputy Barney Fife in the 1960s series The Andy Griffith Show, has died.

Knotts was also widely recognized for his role in the 1970s sitcom Three's Company. He played Ralph Furley, a middle-aged landlord with a predilection for leisure suits and ascots who mistakenly thought of himself as a swinger.

Knotts, who lived in West Los Angeles, died Friday night of lung cancer at Cedars-Sinai Medical Center in Beverly Hills, Calif., media reports said on Saturday, quoting his business manager and cable TV executives.

He was 81.
This is his biography at IMDB.

I knew Don Knotts more as Mr. Furley than as Barney Fife. Mr. Furley ranked way higher than Mr. Roper any day.

Popping My Head Up

As mentioned elsewhere, I had forgotten how much work a 1-month old is. I knew I shouldn't have gotten used to a toilet-trained 4 year old who sleeps through the night. Sleep is irrelevant.

Things I want to talk about, and I hope I get a chance to:
  • The Ontario Progressive Conservative Party has released its white papers (available here) from their policy convention last weekend. On aside, anybody else noticing that when the media talks to PC leader John Tory, they ask him questions like he's the Premier?
  • Proposals in the Ontario legislature for "negative option organ donation".
  • Canada's continued role in Afghanistan.
And whatever else pops up.

An Observation

I noticed today that we have the same clothes dryer as the Foreman's do on That 70's Show. I don't know what that means. Theirs is green, ours is white. I maintain that our dryer might be 15-20 years old, but not 30.

So there.

My apologies if posting seems light, somebody forgot to remind me that a 1-month old is a lot of work.

Natalie Searches Target Me

After 167 days, this blog is still the number 1 result for tag searches for "Natalie Glebova" on Technorati.

So, I'm going to take this opportunity to gratuitously post pictures of Natalie in this post. It's not entirely gratuitous, because the pictures do have something to do with the narrative.

We here at my blog still love Natalie and still shake our head at the City of Toronto.

Thank you.

Say "No" to National ID Cards

Let's see, we have SIN cards, health cards, birth certificates, passports, and driver's licenses, and now we're once again proposing the creation of a national ID card program [Calgary Sun, Day looks at ID card options]:
Sooner or later, Canadians will have to carry some form of identification other than a passport to travel outside the country, says the new federal minister of public safety [Stockwell Day].

...

New life is being breathed into the proposal now the U.S. has dropped its demand that Canadians be required to show passports to cross the border.

"We also want to be able to stop people who are a menace or a threat from getting in or getting out, so that's the overall goal," Day said.
What's the "new life"? Well, the national ID card program was proposed under the Liberal government under former Immigration Minister, Denis Coderre, and the idea tanked then too under the mistaken belief that it would help keep the bad guys out and make Canada safer.

It won't.

Canada's interim Privacy Commissioner at the time, Robert Marleau, back in 2003, supplied a report to Parliament when Mr. Coderre proposed a national ID card program. He had great concerns regarding the need for a national ID card program, the desire for such a system, the great concern for privacy issues (would this be an "internal passport"?), and the near astronomical cost. Mr. Coderre could not defend or support an argument for the national ID card program, and I don't think Mr. Day could either.

My concerns are the same as the Privacy Commissioner's.

How would a national ID card program keep the bad guys out precisely, and what is wrong with the passport? And, just because the British are doing it is also not justification. Here is the summary of the Privacy Commissioner's report:
The privacy risks associated with such a proposal are substantial. The challenges of putting in place a national ID system that is workable, affordable, and respectful of the privacy rights of Canadians are enormous. A strong case for the benefits has not been made; to the extent that benefits would exist, they would be marginal at best.
I think the case for a national ID card is impossible to make and I have yet to see one.

Further information regarding the national ID card program from the Privacy Commissioner can be found here.

National Flag of Canada Day

From the Ministry of Canadian Heritage:
February 15 is National Flag of Canada Day. It marks the day in 1965 when our red and white maple leaf flag was first raised over Parliament Hill in Ottawa, and in hundreds of communities from coast to coast to coast. This is a perfect opportunity to celebrate our flag and what it stands for — a country and a citizenship that are the envy of the world. In our often understated ways, be it instructing students in a school classroom, taking time to listen to the stories of veterans, or volunteering at the local community centre, Canadians share their pride in our flag and in their common values.
Happy Flag Day!

A Daniel Cook Valentine Moment

My eldest son really enjoys Daniel Cook, that little red-haired kid that does all the stuff. Well, today was the Valentine's Day episode and he was making a Valentine's Day card for his mom.

The conversation revolved around whether or not Daniel's mom would like the Valentine and Daniel said:

"My mom pretty much likes whatever I make her, even if it's horrid."

I have never laughed so hard in my life.

Coverage of the Olympics: Cheers and Jeers

Cheers, to the Oval Lingotto: I just love saying "Oval Lingotto" out loud. I don't know if it's because it sounds dirty or that people think I'm talking about my greatest make out move, the Oval Lingotto.

O-Val Lin-GOTTO.

It just rolls off the tongue. I don't even know what it means.

Babelfish says "oval ingot".

Jeers, to CBC Parkas: I don't know who decided that the CBC coverage of the Olympics had to include the wearing of big, puffy, smoky-blue parkas - especially when they're inside covering curling. In the immortal words of Syndrome, from The Incredibles, "Lame lame lame!"

I can't find any pictures of the parka - if you do, please let me know.

Ontario Liberal Party Doesn't Want to Ban Something

I was as shocked as you.

Progressive Conservative MPP, John O'Toole (Durham), is once again planning to enter a private member's bill at Queen's Park to ban cellphone use while driving, citing many cases where their use was believed to be instrumental in car crashes:
"Driving while using a hand-held cellphone in 99 per cent of the cases constitutes a risk to yourself and others," said O'Toole, who first introduced the bill in 1998.
There's no question that performing any activity (except actually driving) while driving constitutes a risk, but I don't think it's riskier behaviour than say changing radio stations or chatting with your passenger.

I don't think people should be banned from using cell phones while driving and current laws that give police the discretion to pull someone over while driving dangerously is sufficient. Even though it is clear, in some cases, that improper use of a cell phone while driving has led to tragedy, I don't think banning them is going to stop somebody from using it.

Now, to the interesting part - I agree with the provincial Liberals. In the midst of the Ontario government believing someone's breed of dog is a danger to others, and that gun collectors should be punished for the actions of criminals, Liberal Premier Dalton McGuinty doesn't think a cellphone ban for drivers is necessary:
"I'm not convinced that we need to ban them in Ontario. I understand there's a law on the books that has to do with dangerous driving and the like. We can't have a law for everything," Premier Dalton McGuinty said Tuesday.

...

"My advice to Ontarians is: if you're using a cell phone when you're driving, be careful. Act responsibly, be sensible and take the necessary measures to protect yourself and others on the road," McGuinty said.
Act responsibly.

Be sensible.

Take the necessary measures to protect yourself and others.

Is it a breakthrough for personal responsibility becoming the framework for Ontario law? That those individuals actually committing wrongdoing are the ones punished, and not the people who act responsibly?

Nah ... it's got to be a fluke.

[Quotes from Toronto Star, No need to ban cellphone use by drivers: Premier]

Next Election Liberal Strategy Revealed

"Conservatives are Evil" didn't work this time around. So, it's time for a new tactic. Since the NDP didn't play nice with the Liberals, it's time for a new direction.

It's time for "The NDP is Evil".
As a blue-Liberal, I am somewhat torn on this. The NDP also includes a lot of people who I prefer to have on the outskirts of the real political debate. They are the people who throw rocks at police, take over condemned houses and support some "right" of suicide bombers to kill innocent Israelis. If all of these nut jobs are held together in one insignificant party, then the Liberal Party might be stronger in the long-run.
Just for once, I'd like to see someone over at the pep squad not try to paint political opposition as evil and try to discuss true policy. For once.

A Declaration

Just to let everyone know, I liked poker before poker was cool. In fact, I liked it when it wasn't cool to like poker. Now we see poker on every TV channel.

I also think Texas Hold'em is a pretty lousy game. Too much fold'em, not enough hold'em.

Had to be said.

And, before it becomes cool, I also like blackjack.

Thank you.

Random Live Webcams from the Net

Courtesy of Opentopia.

The funniest one is English Language Training College in Edmonton. There was one day where the receptionist behind the counter was talking to some dude just hanging off of the desk waving his rear in the air. It didn't seem to bother him that there were people coming up to talk to the receptionist.

Of course, I can't find it now, but there was one of a pub in Europe where the camera is right on the bar, and there was some dude looking all lonely drinking alone.

Just So We're Clear

Ann Coulter said:
Catholics aren't short on rules, but they couldn't care less if non-Catholics use birth control. Conservative Jews have no interest in forbidding other people from mixing meat and dairy. Protestants don't make a peep about other people eating food off one another's plates. (Just stay away from our plates – that's disgusting.)

But Muslims think they can issue decrees about what images can appear in newspaper cartoons. Who do they think they are, liberals?
[Hat tip, The Meatriarchy]

Sure, somebody issued a decree about what goes on television, though.

But, that's completely different.

When a doll company financially supports Girls, Inc., we call on another group to rally the troops because Girls, Inc. "is pro-abortion and pro-contraception and pro all the other lies the secular world wants our girls to believe."

But, that's completely different, too.

It seems to me that there are some groups in this world bent on ensuring that I cannot use birth control, that my children can't use birth control, and that I cannot watch what I want on television.

I think what Ann meant to suggest is that we need to be vigilant against fanaticism and negative movements in all forms, and that we shouldn't view our own personal belief structure as being a universal belief structure.

I hope so.

My Last Comment on David Emerson

I'm very pleased by the diversity of opinion on the David Emerson floor-crossing in the Conservative Party ranks. This is in stark contrast to the lack of diversity of opinion on the Belinda Stronach floor-crossing in the Liberal Party ranks.

I'm not about to burn my membership card over this. I'm sure there are going to be other policies and motions I'm not going to agree with it. I'll rah-rah when I agree with something, and I'll question that which I don't. No political party is going to please everybody.

I also don't agree with the notion that Mr. Emerson has to resign and run in a by-election. As I've said before, floor-crossing itself does not bother me, and only the voters of Vancouver-Kingsway can determine if Mr. Emerson is fit to represent them. My concern was, was Mr. Emerson convinced that the Conservative Party was a better home, or was he convinced that the position of Minister of International Trade was a better home? Am I supposed to care?

I don't think this is an outbreak of "Tory syndrome", as some have suggested. I don't think it helps the Conservative Party to have supporters behave like unabashed cheerleaders of every thing that happens - you want to see the chief cheerleading squad, go here. I can trust Mr. Harper to lead, but it would be disingenuous not to voice concern or criticism.

Andrew at Bound by Gravity has a collection of other postings summarizing some other last thoughts of the Emerson / Fortier moves, including some of the "rational" thoughts on the subject. KevinG, at Odd Thoughts, summarizes the possible pluses of the move.

We're all very happy that Stephen Harper can play the political game. Some of us were hoping that he was going to change the game.

And, on a Less Serious Note

Count on Bill Graham for a little unintentional irony to lighten the mood [CBC, Reaction to Harper's cabinet appointments]:
I find it worrisome that Mr. Harper has chosen someone for his cabinet who was elected under the Liberal banner just a couple of weeks ago.

- Interim [Leader of the Opposition,] Bill Graham [Liberal]
You and me both, there Billy. I guess it's a good job you guys didn't win the election, because I'm almost certain there would have been a whole mess of cabinet members chosen who were running under the Liberal banner.

Thanks, Bill.

David Emerson

From CBC News, Surprise! Cabinet includes defector, unelected minister:
[Former Liberal MP, and Industry Minister, David] Emerson, a 60-year-old former banker, businessman and economist, was elected in the B.C. riding of Vancouver-Kingsway in 2004 and re-elected last month, both times as a Liberal.

To the surprise of many, he showed up at Rideau Hall in Ottawa on Monday morning to be sworn into the cabinet. In addition to his duties as trade minister, he will be responsible for the Vancouver Olympics.
Well, I don't know what to say. Off the top - I think it stinks.

I'll say exactly the same thing I said when Belinda Stronach crossed the floor as it stinks as much now as it did then.

Two weeks after running as Liberal candidate, Mr. Emerson is now sworn in as a Conservative cabinet minister. I think Mr. Emerson has done the constituents of Vancouver Kingsway a major disservice by not declaring his intentions before winning the riding for the Liberal Party.

I mean, simply put, would Mr. Emerson have jumped parties had the Liberals been victorious? And, why, Mr. Harper, did you name him to cabinet. Let him jump, okay fine, but to reward the jump with a cabinet post? It's impossible to defend.

Mr. Emerson ran on the Liberal Party platform and should represent that platform, or sit as an independent and contemplate his future.

Simply put - if his intention was to become a Conservative member of parliament, he should have sought the Conservative Party nomination and ran as a Conservative candidate.

What's worse? The riding of Vancouver Kingsway made it clear that they did not want a Conservative MP - Kanman Wong, finished a distant third, barely capturing half of the NDP candidate's (Ian Waddell) votes.

Now, I don't believe an MP needs to resign their seat and run in a by-election. It's "parliamentary" to cross the floor and whatnot. Short of committing a crime, only the constituents of a riding should be able to get rid of a sitting MP via an election.

But come on - it hasn't even been two weeks yet.

Al Lewis, April 30, 1910 - February 3, 2006

Al Lewis, also known as Grandpa Munster, has died at the age of 95. From ABC News:
Al Lewis, the cigar-chomping patriarch of "The Munsters" whose work as a basketball scout, restaurateur and political candidate never eclipsed his role as Grandpa from the television sitcom, died after years of failing health. He was 95.

Lewis, with his wife at his bedside, passed away Friday night, said Bernard White, program director at WBAI-FM, where the actor hosted a weekly radio program. White made the announcement on the air during the Saturday slot where Lewis usually appeared.

...

Lewis, sporting a somewhat cheesy Dracula outfit, became a pop culture icon playing the irascible father-in-law to Fred Gwynne's ever-bumbling Herman Munster on the 1964-66 television show. He was also one of the stars of another classic TV comedy, playing Officer Leo Schnauzer on "Car 54, Where Are You?"
I had forgotten he had run for the governorship of New York, as the Green Party candidate against George Pataki. We'll miss you, Grandpa.

What would cultural theorists say about you?

Take that Cultural Theory! Hat tip, Socialist Swine.

What is that Cultural Theory? I don't know - they don't teach anthropology in statistical research methods class.
This test is based on "grid-group Cultural Theory," a theory developed by anthropologist Mary Douglas to explain differences in people's worldviews. In a nutshell, Cultural Theory claims that everyone holds one of four basic worldviews. If you want to learn more about Cultural Theory, check out the book Cultural Theory by Michael Thompson, Richard Ellis, and Aaron Wildavsky.
I am:

The Falsifier
You scored 92% individualism, 8% fatalism, 64% hierarchy, and 56% egalitarianism!
Congratualtions, you are helping to disprove Cultural Theory!

Cultural Theory argues that each person will adhere to one, or possibly two, of the basic cultures. The other viewpoints will sound insane or incoherent. Because you agree with three of the cultures, you don't fit Cultural Theory's predictions. Take that, Mary Douglas!
