Hummingbird Centre De-Hummed, Harper Promises No Vote On Afghanistan, and Britney’s Comeback Not All That

hummingbird_news.jpgAs of Friday, it’s no longer the Hummingbird Centre, but instead the Sony Centre. You know what? All performing arts venues should be renamed so that they sound like something you would find at your local mall. It gives the whole experience more delicious corporate flavour.
Stephen Harper says there will be no vote on the mission in Afghanistan anytime soon unless it is to “finish the job.” And if that sounded like, “Hey, I dare you guys to give me a no-confidence vote,” it’s probably just his accent or something.

Porter Airlines to expand. Turns out that massive government subsidies really help a business be profitable!
And finally, the Jays couldn’t quite beat the Devil Rays last night.
