Morning music videos: The Caravan “What Up Steve?”
Politically charged song by Halifax hip-hop band The Caravan, questioning Canadian Prime Minister Stephen Harper. Video shot for $20.
Meet David Rennie, the executive director of the Salvation Army in Toronto. He stole a whole buncha toys from the donations they receive every year and hid them in his own personal warehouse. Nothing says “charity!” like a little behind-the-scenes thievery.

“I’m a Canadian.
We’re a quiet bunch; prone to enjoying hockey, drinking stronger beer than our friends south of the border, and lovers of fries smothered in cheese curds and gravy.
We also, apparently, have an inferiority complex when it comes to being evil dirt bags, because we’ve decided to pass our very own version of SOPA up here.
Meet Bill-C11. Formerly Bill C-32. (I think they thought if they made the number lower people would care less about it?)
But, as innocuous as it sounds, C-11 does a whole lot that SOPA did with a few extra twists you might not find in the Wikipedia write-up.
Like your PVR? You can’t keep it under C-11.
Like ripping CDs to your iPod? Say bye-bye.
Hey, do you want to be able to unlock your $500 smartphone and take it to a provider less dedicated to violating your wallet? That won’t be allowed either.
Did you get accused of internet piracy but no evidence has been presented and a trial date hasn’t even been set? Under C-11 your ISP will now be forced to terminate your internet access.
And people say that governments can’t be bought.
There are only 14 days left people. Get active.”

ATTN: CANADIANS Most people don’t know about the invasive online spying bills that will be rammed through Parliament this fall, so Canadians are stepping up to the plate, using social media and online videos to educate their fellow citizens.
The government is trying to sneak through a dangerous and costly set of online spying bills. If passed, these bills will create a mandatory new registry of your private electronic data and force you to pay for it.
Go to the source to read more information, share the videos, sign the petition, but most of all get more people informed about this.
