Love Can Build a Bridge...even if Christy Clark burned it down

    1 of 3 2 of 3

      In the aftermath of the now-cancelled Om the Bridge boondoggle, perhaps it's time for a salve on all of our wounds.

      While B.C. Premier Christy Clark has managed to tarnish the reputations of both yoga and tai chi in the name of a gas company's photo op, burnt numerous bridges in the process, wound up pitting yogis against aboriginal people, and blamed all of us for its cancellation instead of taking responsibility for the ill-conceived idea, it's time to turn to the power of music for some healing.

      So let us all join virtual hands and revive the classic 1990 Kumbaya-esque song "Love Can Build a Bridge" by the Judds.

      The Native content, featuring mending relationships with People Without Colour, is particularly apropos. And so are the big hair and shoulder pads.

      It seems that a new cover version is in order, most likely by Shun the Bridge leader Raffi (who no one should ever, ever, ever mess with).

      Don't you think it's time? (Reprise and fade out.)

      After all, if the random and inexplicable alliance of Cher, Chrissie Hynde, and Neneh Cherry (with Eric Clapton) can team up for a cover for no apparent reason, why not Mr. Cavoukian?

      Besides, we only have to wait until International Barista Day when baristas band together to shut down the entire city by refusing to go to work.

      Namaste, haters.
