Why I can't stand our current government (G8/20 aside, of course, as I don't have the energy to rant about that disaster of epic proportions that descended on my city):

They happily gave money to this - and now four horses are dead in four days - but they refused to fund ANY Pride celebrations this year.

Oh, no, Harper's not biased towards his home province at all, no. One can only hope they (Albertans) have enough clout to get the long form census reinstated.

My city is still recovering from the G20. It's going to be a while. I think us downtowners have collective PTSD from what's happened (and knowing people who do have PTSD, I don't use the term lightly).

Meanwhile, I have a friend flying in from the UK, in transit as I type this, arriving this afternoon to spend Pride week and then some with me and spouse. We're trying to get in the mood for it, but the whole mess of violation of Charter rights is leaving a black cloud over the city and a bad taste in our mouths.

Still. Vacation. Sailing on a Tall Ship. Canada Day. Pride Parade. Dressing up in fabulous steampunkery Just Because.

It will be good.
