The Devil Went Down to Nova Scotia and Leaves Them in Black Rage

It has been reported that a hologram of the Conservative logo reveals the numbers '666'. This revelation gave little comfort to the people of Nova Scotia, who have been victims of Peter MacKay and his friends and family stimulus package.

DURING THE LAST election campaign, I interviewed a young woman in a New Glasgow pub who told me she was voting for Peter MacKay because she hoped he would create some jobs, so she and her friends wouldn’t have to move away.
