bazaar 40-foot tree confetti

thumbs
These ladies love Bazaar Saturday in Bells Corners, an annual tradition that goes back about fifty years.
bcamion
Three huge bazaars along the same short stretch of Old Richmond Road – bargains galore!
k
These ladies from Kanata used the Bells Corners FREE Bike-taxi to ride from Erin Coffin’s Anglican Christ Church to Rick’s Catholic Church.

Career politician Rick Chiarelli schmoozed at all three churches. His wife Lida sported a spiffy new leather jacket courtesy of the taxpayer – wonder if she shops at the same store as disgraced Deputy Mayor Mark Taylor?
taylor
Taylor was recently mocked in the Ottawa Citizen for billing the taxpayer $254 for an embroidered black leather jacket and a further $461 for two embroidered Eddie Bauer soft-shell jackets.
creche2
A hearty United Church lunch was $7: barley soup or chili, bun, coffee, cake, good company.
creche
You don’t often see an inflatable crèche.

United spring rolls made by the reverend
IF
Parking was crazy everywhere – only about 5% of the crowd walks or bikes.
tree2
This guy wanted to stay for Alex and Lisa’s Christmas tree-lighting but was asked to leave – only official BIA sponsors were allowed.
carousel
The merry-go-round gets set up – same guys who did the Alex/Lisa Hoopla.
blue
It was a Lisa MacLeod/Alex Lewis Conservative love-in. If Lisa ever retires Alex wants to replace her.

Lisa made a right-wing speech about the importance of donating to private Christian food banks. She and Alex agree that hungry people shouldn’t turn to the government for help – that would be socialism (and wealthy people/big businesses would have to pay their fair share of the tax burden).
famsac
Christian private food banks good, secular public food banks bad?
rick
Rick made an insipid speech praising himself. Chandra Arya looked embarrassed.
kurt2
Kurt Stoodley was MC in 2014, but Alex took over the mic this year.
alex
He didn’t repeat his “We say CHRISTMAS in Bells Corners, dammit – don’t give me that anti-Christian Happy Holidays horseshit!” rant, but he came close.
chair
Santa’s big chair was popular.
santanaughty
Everyone, naughty or nice, got BIA-branded candy and a BIA/Lisa MacLeod stocking to hang by the chimney.
girls
Free bike-taxi rides were lots of fun.
passagers2
These guys weren’t dressed for the fake snow that started to fall.

Welcome to Xmas in Canada.
jay
Alex and sleazy lobbyist Jay Tysick reminisced about the good old days when they worked scams for Rick.
confetti
At least the tree didn’t fall over this year.
tree-1
Not everyone’s one happy with the mess left behind. More cyberbullying by Tristan Maack wannabes like Shannon Victoria ensues:

trist
Facebook bully Tristan Maack looked grumpy because Alex, Rick and Lisa were getting all the attention, so he slipped into the shadows to sneak a cigarette, another addiction he can’t seem to beat.
