A bear on skates from the Russian State Circus has killed a person. A director who was visiting the bear in Bishkak, Kyrgyzstan was mauled. This brings to attention how some bears are trained to play hockey to entertain crowds. The attack was a result of animal cruelty. Playing hockey is what the Toronto Maple Leafs are for. Leave the bears alone! Granted, they may be better at hockey than the Leafs, but that's no excuse to exploit them.
In a bizarre attempt to shore up votes for the NDP, P.M. Stephen Harper sang, 'With A Little Help From My Friends' to a packed house national arts gala. El Canadu predicts that Liberal leader Iggy will respond. Based on what we've seen from Conservative attack ads, Iggy will do a rendition of, 'Born in the USA' within the next week. As long as NDP leader Jack Layton stays away from anything by Queen or Elton John, he is guaranteed a majority government.
