where the heck is itq?


Life outside the accuracy wire

Our former Colleague Kady spots — and corrects — a most interesting correction.

Kady O’Malley liveblogs Question Period


Don’t forget her when she’s gone …

Her heeeeart would breeaaaak/Sheeeeee has looooved you for so loooonnnng/It’s all she can taaaaake …


ITQ goes to the G20: And amazingly, she only gets lost once on her way to the hotel!

Of course, it was within two stations of her ultimate destination, and technically, she did it twice, but still.


ITQ goes to the G20: We’re definitely not inside the Queensway anymore, Toto.

Oh my goodness, you guys! I’m going to London! Today, even! I fly out from lovely YOW this afternoon, and should be landing at Heathrow at the crack of dawn tomorrow morning, whereupon I will likely immediately get hopelessly lost. (Just playing the odds here, people.)


Send Kady O’Malley to the G20!

I haven’t even told ITQ about this. Apparently some group is convening 50 bloggers to the G20 summit in London in early April, including 20 who will be nominated by the public. I’m absolutely shameless enough to ask you to send me, except in all fairness the blogger who covers the G20 shouldn’t be the one who spent four years saying a leaders’ G20 was a dumb idea, so I’m out. Besides, this will basically be a big committee meeting, and I’m told they sell Red Bull in London, so… well, the stars are aligning. You know what to do. It’s time to liveblog a G20. Godspeed.


It’s not quite Parliament: The Musical!, but it’s close: Liveblogging the Black and White Gala at the NAC

Really, how could ITQ be expected to turn down an opportunity to see Stockwell Day do Gilbert and Sullivan? The curtain goes up at 8pm, so check back tonight for the all the light operatic action.


ITQ Programming Notice: Hey, remember that Auditor General report?

Oh, sure you do  – we told you all about it a few weeks back, remember? Anyway, ITQ is off to the lockup to live-to-tape-blog Sheila Fraser’s embargoed press conference, which will be posted as soon as the report is tabled in the House at approximately 2 pm. Cross your fingers that the snack tray hasn’t been picked clean by my colleagues by the time I get there, y’all – and I’ll be back later with all the details.


SenateWatch: RIP Mike Duffy Live

Harper’s 18 Senate appointments include Mike Duffy, Pamela Wallin and Nancy Greene


Can you hear the people sing? No, probably not.

ITQ will be on the Hill for today’s “Rally for Canada” – not liveblogging, most likely, because it’s freaking cold out there, and I’m not risking frostbitten berrythumbs for anything less than another trip to Rideau Hall, but I’ll report back when I can. See if you can find me in the crowd via the HillCam!
