No, we didn't stuff Prime Minister Steven Harper into a nutshell (though that might be a good place for him).
Unless you've been living under a rock, you may have noticed that Canadian politics got a little more interesting this week. And by a little more interesting, I mean a hell of a lot more confusing for the average Canadian (let's be honest...Social Studies was a loooong time ago for most of us).
Need to catch up with the action? Knitting blogger extraordinaire, The Yarn Harlot, has prepared a succinct and informative summary of the events so far (CBC, CTV, Global and CITY be damned! I get my news from a knitter!). So, turn down the Celine Dion, kick off your Sorels, have a seat on the ol' chesterfield, grab a nice cup of Timmy's and read about why our system of government kicks ass. I present to you: "What is happening in Canada" according to the Yarn Harlot.
