BlackBerry Liberation Front


A quick note for anyone out there who may be having trouble reading ITQ (or, come to think of it, any of the macleans.ca blogs) on their BlackBerry (or an y inferior other hand-held device): You might want to update your bookmark(s) by hand. For some reason, the automagical redirect thingy doesn’t play nicely with mobile browsers, which means that if you try to get here through the old URL – the one that starts off with forums.macleans.ca, followed by a hideously complex and counterintuitive string of random characters and numbers – it won’t work.

Instead, go directly to:



Yes, I realize the inherent contradiction of posting directions on how to access this blog on the very same blog that the people who could use said directions are unable to access, but what can you do?

Also: Look! Comments!


BlackBerry Liberation Front

  1. Yay!

    Do you take requests? I’d like to hear the story of the Black Rod Affair you mentioned recently. :)

  2. Of course – and I shall tell the tale as soon as I have time to do it justice, I promise. I can never decide if it is the ultimate argument in favour of, or against the abolition of the Senate.

  3. Whoo hoo! Comments free-for-all!


    K, now I’m bored. :)

    Just moved to Ottawa with my wife… Are there any places we could go for dinner during the week where we’re bound to see some of the Ottawa elite? Where do they hang out on the weekend? I’d love to ring my bike bell angrily at John Baird as I pass him riding on the NCC trails…

  4. ITQ: Here to help.

    Well, except when it comes to stalking the elusive Environment Minister on the weekends; I’m pretty sure that local bike paths would not be the first place I’d look, what with the lack of cheesebread vendors, but one never knows. David Akin used to have a wonderfully parliageeky map of all sorts of local attractions, from the Martini Ranch to the Press Theatre to The Pit, but I can’t seem to find it at the moment.
