    Al Gore was in town last night giving his talk at Convocation Hall at University of Toronto.

    Place only seats 1500 and $20.00 tickets were being scalped resold for $400-$500 a pair.

    Love the Toronto Sun's headline.

    "Tree Huggers Gored"

    The Sun is a right wing rag but their headlines are absolutely brilliant.


    Tony Iacoducci was hoping to take his son, Robert: "Need to get 2 tickets to bring my 12 year old son to see this Lecture, will even pay double the value of the tickets."

    He soon found out his $40 offer wasn't going to cut it and he wasn't prepared to meet the asking price of $200 a ticket. "They can keep them," he said. "Let's put it in perspective. For a Leafs game, no problem."

    The only American politician who gets as much love as that is Clinton. And some of that love may be coming from Belinda Stronach.

    Is Al running for President of Canada?

    If he did, I'd take him over Stephen Harper in a heartbeat.

    Prime Minister. We only have Presidents of Rotary Clubs

    That could actually be fun. Then he could declare war on the U.S.

    Maybe Gore could actually win that race. But would he carry his home province?

    He'd have to do two things to win: learn French and learn to skate.

    The former is mandatory, the latter adviseable.

    I thought it was the other way around.

    Do you mean prime minister of Canada or president of the local Rotary Club?
