I am now back in Ottawa, sweltering in the heat and trying to make sense of all the notes I took!
It was great to meet you too, Das Glasperlenspiel! It was a fun evening, and reminded me that I need to get back to the Owl from time to time. Hope that you can make it back sometime. As for visiting Ottawa--I found out recently that I may need to be in Toronto next June. Nothing definite at this point, but if it happens, I might be able to make a side trip.

I was in Ottawa last month. Even though I was fairly sick, I had a good time!

Yesterday I visited a place I hadn't been to before - Mont-Tremblant. Mostly known as a skiing place near Montreal, though I found it's wonderful in the summer.

I saw a performance by the Sam Roberts Band there last night. It was amazing! One of the best of their concerts I've seen.

Cool. I've skied there many times, but never been in the summer.

Premier of Manitoba announces he's moving the election date up from October to September; apparently all the parties have already been campaigning for weeks, so why not just get it done?

Election campaign in Manitoba will get officially underway as early as today

No reaction yet from the other parties as to whether they agree with the timing change or think it's an attempt to get an advantage.

I'm not really a skier. Would like to go back to Tremblant sometime, though. It's wonderful.

PM Trudeau found guilty of violating the Code of Interest Act. Will they hire back the two women that he forced out, Jody Wilson-Raybould and Jane Philpott?

I doubt it. Even if they were offered their jobs back, I doubt they'd accept.

I'm sure that they will both run in the upcoming election, as independents, which is fine--we'll see how they do.
