Today, I’m resuming my vacation — briefly. Back to work Monday

After agreeing to cut short my scheduled time off a couple of days early to cover all this North Saskatchewan River oil spill nonsense, with the Premier in the city and the Green Party also showing up, today I am resuming my vacation — if only briefly. Three straight days off. I need every single one of them, too.

So enjoy the start of the Summer Olympics today. It shouldn’t be quite as bad as they all say it will be in Rio.

Update: As usual, the people I cover on my political beat insist on making news while I try to have a few days off. (It figures.) Deputy premier Don McMorris has resigned from cabinet over a drunk driving charge.
