Between Iraq and a Hard Place

rushtowar.gifWhen Jean Chretien decided not to invade Iraq, he effectively averted both the war and all mentions in the countless anti-war media produced since. For instance, tonight’s Robert Taicher produced Rush to War will make no mention of the Chretien government, and will most likely lay off Canada altogether. The Drake Hotel (1150 Queen W) houses the film in its basement (pronounced ‘the Drake Underground’) tonight at 9:30pm, with the doors at 8:00pm. After-party includes the Alchemy Trio (featuring Richard Underhill), Great Bob Scott, Lee Hutchinson, and a “rare” set from DJ Gringo Star (formally known as Sir Spinner Fine Vinyl).
