NHL ACTION RETURNS TODAY...
...OILERS VISIT CANUCKS TOMORROW! I hate how hockey is automatically attached to our identity as Canadians, but there's no denying our love for the game. Sure, I'm pissed off with the greed and sheer stubbornness of the super-rich players and owners, but I like watching hockey; therefore I AM excited for the return of the NHL. The Edmonton Oilers (a force to be reckoned with) play their first game tomorrow night in Vancouver against the Canucks. Game time is 7pm, join the Paul Brown Show's GILLIAN FOOTE on location at The Pint off Whyte for all the action and great food & drink specials!
HEAD SHOP WINS COURT RULING - UPDATE ... Last Saturday I told you about the court victory by The Chad 420 Smoke Shop. Basically they fought a silly St. Albert bylaw restricting the sales of herb-related stuff, and won the decision in an Edmonton courtroom. Now, the city of St. Albert is appealing the decision: http://edmonton.ctvnews.ca/st-albert-to-challenge-court-ruling-against-bylaw-1.1121115#ixzz2IReecz7p. Listen daily at 4:20pm Mountain time, for The Bear's "420 Bong Song" to win tons of cool sh*t from www.chads420.ca!
PROVINCE CARRYING HUGE DEFICIT ... Not really a big surpise here, at all. Alberta's Finance Minister, Doug Horner, announced yesterday that the province's deficit "is going to be bigger than...projected." Apparently we had about 17 Billion Dollars in a "rainy day fund" last November (2012), and that's been whittled down to about 3 Billion dollars. How?! Oh right, all politicians are lairs and crooks.

COMPANY PLANNING MOON TRIPS ... It's been a long time since man stepped on the moon, and now that every country in the world is po' ass broke, nobody can afford to send people there. That's where the wonderful world of private enterprise comes in: www.TorontoSun.com/2013/01/17/fly-me-to-the-moon-how-private-enterprise-plans-to-reignite-our-passion-for-moon-travel
WHAT IF ARMSTRONG WAS CANADIAN ... Seriously. Put all your "Holier Than Thou" judgement aside. If Lance Armstrong was a Canadian, would your opinion on him be as harsh?
