Parliament of puppets

As I prepare for a month-long trip to South America this week, I thought I’d leave you with a little puppet show I put together last year to commemorate the prorogation of Parliament. Harper, Ignatieff, Layton and co. all have their chance to shine in what served as a little alternative House of Commons, established in a shoebox in my kitchen. Even better than the real thing 🙂 Enjoy!

I’ll try to update the blog with travel-related bits of interest while I’m away, but will probably leave any of the normal political bits and bobs until January, when the lure of mountain treks and dinners of steak and riojas have become but distant memories. Sniff.

Adios till then!

Canada’s Shoebox Parliament

Ah, memory lane. A lane of wonderful memories.

After a skinful of beers following the anti-proroguation demonstrations in London (UK) last January, I got the cockamamie idea to create my own puppet show of Canada’s Parliament. Bereft of a real working parliament in Ottawa, it seemed like the only way to get a solid fix of political titillation. That’s right, titillation.

Here in the dreary midsummer, impatient I suppose for Parliament to resume once more, I thought I’d share the video with you now. It’s nearly eight minutes long, but so, so worth it.

Enjoy!
