Beats me, but I hope Occupy Vancouver is ready for the full participation of Mr. Beer N. Hockey on the 15th. My suggestion- bring your hockey stick.

Thanks Alison--

It's interesting.

I'm actually starting to think the diffuse nature of the groups/folks involved is actually helping with the momentum building because it is more difficult for the MelangeMedia to label and then dismiss (discredit?) it. As a result, it has not yet passed into the newscycle trash bin.


Mr. Beer--

Fair enough.


No Teddy Greening goin' down.

Mr. Beer N. Hockey said...

My thought exactly Ross. No more commenting to other people's blogs from my phone without my glasses on!

I'll be there on the 15th, and I'm bringing the Grim Reaper with me.
