Coupe Stanley
As everyone knows, the Stanley Cup is awarded on the basis of a failed charitable purpose trust and is in all likelihood legally owned by some British guy descended from Lord Stanley of Preston who doesn't realize it.

Putting aside the fascinating topic of nineteenth century trust law, I just wanted to point out that Brent Rathgerber, a Member of Parliament from Edmonton, described the Stanley Cup as the "trophy du jour of the NHL", because he is a dumbass and doesn't know that there's a difference between "du jour", a French expression meaning "of the day", and "de jure", a Latin expression meaning "in law". Or he thinks he is ordering the soup in law at nice restaurants.

http://brentrathgeber.ca/the-stanley-cup-belongs-to-canadians/

His legal analysis is ridiculous: so the "Canadian people" automatically own anything that has ever belonged to a governor general? Then I would like Adrienne Clarkson's porcelain doll collection, please. If the Stanley Cup trust has failed, then the trust property reverts to Lord Stanley, his heirs and successors.

He also asks "what could be more Canadian" than letting a bunch of drunken beer leaguers play for one of the world's most prestigious sports trophies? If he thinks horrible ideas are typically Canadian, then really he should be running for the Bloc quebecois.

It's horrifying to think that someone who understands so little about the most important things in life, hockey and trust law, has been elected to public office (Although it was an Alberta election -- let's see how he does when they switch to multiparty democracy).

The Old Port isn't just aged sherry in Portugal
The Old Port of Montreal is a federal government corporation. Corporation president Claude Benoit charged $10,000 to the corporation to prepare a report on things that sort of reminded her of the Old Port while she was vacationing in Australia and New Zealand.
The report is available for your inspection here. I suggest that you review this very inciteful and interesting report to learn things about Australia and New Zealand that you could only otherwise find out in one of your friends' Facebook albums.

Election Congratulations
Congratulations, first of all, to Hamid Karzai and Gérald Tremblay for their re-elections. For those of you who do not know these two men, one is a corrupt, weak leader in a land controlled by druglords whose re-election was made possible through a farcical, sham process, while the other is the president of Afghanistan.

Congratulations also go out to newly-acclaimed Mayor Gisèle Chapleau and the six acclaimed counsellors of L'Ile-Dorval (results available here), a city with no residents.

FDP Endorsement
While travelling, I saw this attack ad of the Free Democratic Party (FDP) by the German Socialist Party (SPD) :



The ad suggests that "Financial Sharks" want to vote for the FDP in the upcoming European Parliament elections. The pictured financial shark seems very happy and friendly. I therefore encourage all European citizens registered in Germany to vote for the FDP on June 6.
