Trudeaumetre

OK, this hasn´t anything to do with tea. But with Canada. With the future of Canada. The Trudeaumetre is a great website where everyone can track what happens with the promises that the Liberals made during their election-campaign, e.g. if they are in process, executed or broken. The site, a so called "non-partisan collaborative citizen initiative" was created by Dom Bernard. The site needs some improvements like e.g. copies of documents published on the Liberal´s...

Ottawa Tea Festival 2015?

The Tea Campaign Canada was supposed to attend this year, 2015, the 5th annual Ottawa Tea Festival. But as I couldn´t find any announcements, I called the organizer, Mrs. Uriu. She told me, there will be no Ottawa Tea Festival in 2015. Reason: the festival has to move to another location, and she couldn´t get the new one before March 2016.
