Someone joked that I might be in the running for the MLA who has talked most about cats in the Chamber this term, but how could I not?! Look! This BC farm cat hitches rides on its sheep friend out to pasture in the morning! Support BC Agriculture! #BuyBC #FeedBC #GrowBC #bcpoli pic.twitter.com/uzSTm5lMTe

Unfortunate name for that ship spill. Why couldn’t it have been HMCS Vancouver that spilled? I’m sure BCians will find a way to pin this on Alberta.
