This extremely shocking and deeply disturbing precognitive short documentary details the unprecedented and irrevocable damage by the LGBT–rights movement in Ireland.

Imperiled heterosexuals are shown resorting to extreme measures to protect themselves from the insidious and pervasive threats of the Pink Peril.

The video comes at an important juncture, just as the country is considering a referendum on marriage equality for the spring of 2015.

Earlier this year, an impassioned speech about LGBT rights by Irish drag queen Panti Bliss went viral internationally in March, even prompting the Pet Shop Boys to turn it into a club anthem.

Students gathered on the steps of the Vancouver Art Gallery today (September 2) to urge the B.C. Public School Employers’ Association and the B.C. Teachers’ Federation to resolve their dispute as soon as possible.

“We believe that our voices should be heard in this, and we’re suffering as a result of this conflict,” Kevin Dhir, a Grade 12 student at Sir Winston Churchill Secondary and one of the organizers of the rally, said in an interview with the Straight.

“They should have resolved it during the summertime when the students wouldn't be negatively affected as much….But now, it’s September 2nd, I was supposed to be starting the first day of the last year of my school career, and here I am out here in the rain having to organize a rally for it.”

A storefront in southeast Vancouver is the third marijuana dispensary busted by police in less than three months.

Today (September 2) officers executed a search warrant against Budzilla located at 2267 Kingsway.

According to a Vancouver Police Department media release, authorities had received numerous complaints regarding how the business was conducting operations.

“The products comprised of dry marijuana and THC-infused edibles, including candy and cookies,” it states. “The appearance and packaging of many of these items could be potentially very appealing to children.”

I live in a wonderful city where I see young parents exhibit real concern if their small bundles of joy (usually children, sometimes dogs) so much as touch the sidewalk, let alone try to pick something up off the street.

Well, I was pleased to see the other day that at least one proud set of parents didn’t let fear of dirt, germs, illicit drug residue, infectious diseases, or human and/or animal waste stop them from immortalizing a moment in the life of their little tyke.

On Yukon Street, just across from Vancouver City Hall, a date is permanently scratched in the sidewalk: "APRIL 09" underneath the imprint of two tiny toddler-sized feet.

So sweet!

Damn, I didn't make the list. Neither did the music editor named Mike, the movies editor named Adrian, or the senior editor named Martin.

But our second-floor production worker named Ken is probably smiling today.

That's because his name topped the list of Canada's sexiest male monikers.

It was released by the dating site WhatsYourPrice.com and identified the 10 men's names that received the "most accepted offers" for dates.

They are, in order:

1. Ken

2. Christopher

3. Colin

4. David

5. Tony

6. Troy

7. Mark

8. Reginald

9. Nicholas

10. Stephen

Since parents couldn't bring their kids to school today (September 2), some of them showed up at their local MLA's office instead.

"MLA Playdate" protests are being organized around the province, and they're meant to continue happening until the teachers' strike is resolved and schools open.

"Aboriginal women are 3.5 times more likely than non-aboriginal women to be victims of violence."

This statistic is shown on screen near the start of Decolonizing Praxis: Supporting Survivors After Sexual Assault.

It's a new short film from Women Against Violence Against Women Rape Crisis Centre that's meant to be a resource for WAVAW's fellow service providers.

When is rape not rape?

According to musician/terrible human being CeeLo Green, it's whenever you have sex with a woman while she's unconscious.

After pleading no contest to felony charges on August 29—for drugging a woman with ecstasy against her knowledge while on a date, no less—Green took to Twitter to discuss the true nature of rape, spouting out words of wisdom like, "Women who have really been raped REMEMBER!!!"

According to Green, "If someone is passed out they're not even WITH you consciously! so WITH Implies consent".

The annual Fair at the PNE is in the books.

Did free admission on the final weekend get you over to Hastings Park?

Photographer Kevin Statham captured these moments during week two of the fair.

Singer Justin Bieber, unlike many Canadian marijuana smokers, is free to continue crossing the border into the United States.

That's despite new charges being laid against him.

The sometimes obnoxious pop star has been booked for assault and dangerous driving after a collision between an ATV and a minivan in the Township of Perth, Ontario.

Following the acccident on August 29, there was reportedly a confrontation between drivers of both vehicles. Bieber hails from the nearby town of Stratford.

Earlier this summer, he pleaded no contest to a charge of vandalism after egging his neighbour's house in Los Angeles. It's an understandable crime for a 12-year-old boy, but for a 20-year-old adult? Come on, Justin.
