Our New Overloards

The new Rhinocerous government's throne speech was read today and it was...about what you'd expect. James Bow has all the other news from their first days in office, while Chucker Canuck speculates on the Tory leadership race, after Harper's resignation and James Moore being named interim leader.

I heard from a friend who works (or...I guess "worked") in the OLO's office that President Bush called Prime Minister Salmi this morning (my guess is he called him "salami", but that's just speculation on my part) and the media scribes have already started speculating about which of the traditional rhino policies will be implemented. Among some of the most "interesting" policy directions our country could be heading in:

-paving Manitoba to make the world's largest parking lot
-building taller schools to provide higher education
-building sloping roads and bicycle paths across the country so that Canadians can coast from coast to coast.
-making all sidewalks out of rubber to prevent inebriated people from hurting themselves when they fall down
-responding to the energy crisis, reducing energy costs for transportation by moving the cities of Montréal 50 km west and Toronto 50 km east
-end crime by abolishing all laws
-adopting the British system of driving on the left; this was to be gradually phased in over five years with large trucks and tractors first, then buses, eventually including small cars and bicycles last,
-making Canadians stronger by putting steroids in the water,
