Canadian Spectator moving to a new home?

By Alfred Burdett

Maintaining a Web server is something of a chore, beside costing a few pennies a day. The Canadian Spectator is thus contemplating moving here to Google's Blogger, where we have set up shop under title of CanSpeccy, which perhaps better expresses our modest ambition and mildly satirical bent than the august title under which we have operated heretofor.

A dubious advantage of posting with Blogger is that readers will be able to comment on the inadequacy of our humor, logic and information, with the possibility, thereby, of adding in some small measure to the sum total of human understanding.

It remains to be seen, however, whether this arrangement proves satisfactory and for the time being all posts will likely be at the first, though any that strike us as passably coherent and possibly comment-worthy will be posted at the CanSpeccy too.


  1. Kudos for all he work you have done!!

  2. Thanks Anon. for the encouragement.

    It's actually so much easier posting stuff here than on my own home-made Web pages that I can no longer conceive of going back to the original site.

  3. Good to know you can free up some time for the day work.

  4. Yes, it's a struggle,nowadays, to make it pay, the price of horse meat being what it is.

  5. You've got some peers across the Ambassador Bridge from Windsor, here in the US.

    From The Detroit News:

    "A licensed hunter and furrier, Beasley says he hunts coons and rabbit and squirrel for a clientele who hail mainly from the South, where the wild critters are considered something of a delicacy.

    Though the flesh is not USDA inspected, if it is thoroughly cooked, there is small chance of contracting rabies from the meat, and distemper and Parvo cannot be passed onto humans, experts say.

    Doing for yourself, eating what's natural, that was Creation's intention, Beasley believes. He says he learned that growing up in Three Creeks, Ark."

  6. We have plenty of coons here in British Columbia, but they're a protected species.

    A huge problem in Victoria are mule deer which can eat bushels of landscaping on a single overnight visit, but you cannot shoot them in town, and even hunting them with bow or spear is illegal. Several arrests having been made recently for illegal deer hunting.

    We have a plague of gray squirrels too, an introduced species that's not protected. But there's not much to eat on a squirrel.
