Weekend roundup - 12/08/08


  • The Canada-US border is now drone-patrolled. Mmm. Robo-customs.
  • The Nixon-Trudeau tapes reveal that Nixon was a jerk, and Trudeau probably deserved it.
  • Farewell, Dion. We hardly knew - or liked - thee.
  • The GG's decision to prorogue was not a 'constitutional coup'. Here, a British guy (and therefore expert in the Westminster system) explains why.



  • The Toronto Star expends precious column inches to reveal the shocking truth that students use Facebook to procrastinate. I would never have guessed, given that a) students have always procrastinated, and b) I'm procrastinating on Facebook right now.
