2. Speaking of which, we've finally seen the Iggy picture that will be donning the front page of conservative.ca for the next few years. I must say, it's really not that bad, except for the dark eyes that look as if they want to steal my soul.
3. Back in Alberta, it appears Iris Evans may be heading off to the Drumheller penitentiary before long, as Alberta is poised to break its own no-deficit law.
4. The Winnipeg Sun offers up a year in review.

8. Courtesy of reader KD, come this wonderful suggestion:
I have an idea that would help ensure the PM has a good selection of highly qualified candidates [for the Senate]. All Canadians should be encouraged to send him their CVs. Yes, I mean every Canadian. What better way to show our support for the PM's job creation efforts in these dark economic times. And who knows, some lucky Canadians who might not otherwise be considered for such an appointment would have a chance to serve their country. The best part is there's no cost! You can mail your resume to the PM's office (free postage) at:
The Right Honourable Stephen Harper
House of Commons
I'm sure his staff would appreciate receiving all these CVs as it would demonstrate the interest that Canadians have in this fine initiative.
Just remember, you must be 35 and own property in the provinces with Senate vacancies. Oh, and if you're a Tory bagman, be sure to highlight that on your cover letter.
