Nordstrom and Whole Foods are moving in;
David’s Tea is announcing a major expansion;
Parliament undergoes a $3 billion renovation; and
full-page ads by Rocky Mountaineer
offer life-changing trips
for over $1,000 a day.
Oh, and for one senator,
cold Camembert isn’t good enough.
The Liberals have yet to hear about all this;
they still think
the next election
is about the economy.
