I waited for an ambulance with two street people after church this morning, one of whom was so drunk he couldn’t stand up, and another of whom seemed to be drunk and high. They were so despairing, and without hope. All I could do was try to look them in the eye and say that help was coming. I don’t even know their names – they looked Innu, but I’m not even sure of that. Please pray for them.

And a Very Merry Christmas to all of you!!!!
The government of Ontario is paying for Ottawa’s free crack pipe programme, despite the fact that Ottawa police don’t want it and the city cut funding for it. Also despite the fact that Ottawa is in desperate need of a residential drug treatment programme, which the province, so far, has declined to fund. What’s a better use of taxpayers’ money: funding a programme that enables drug use, or funding a programme that helps people get off drugs? Seems like a no brainer to me.
I don’t agree with some of what Steyn said in the offending article (I think he attaches more blame to so called “big” government than is warranted, especially when it comes to medicare). However, the lawsuit that he and Maclean’s are facing because he dared to voice his opinion is a scandal. Binky has set up a blog in Steyn’s defence, it’s worth a look.
I believe that this wanted poster is the Binkster’s artwork – correct me if I’m wrong, please…
Anybody know where the very last scene in this video is from? I’m curious…
