Too hot, Canuck self-abasement and rich, happy Norway

The extraordinarily warm weather this September has inspired an urgent request to landlords to turn off the heat. It’s on because there is a bylaw saying that by this date, it must be on. All well and good but the climate doesn’t care. Then, to the UN where the prime minister doesn’t seem to feel Canadians have had their fill of self-abasement. The UN no doubt loved it. On the other hand, even hard-hearted Canadians may twinge to hear that those happy Norwegians (happiest in the world, they say) have squirreled away a trillion US dollars in their Sovereign Wealth Fund. Okay. Will it cheer you to spend a moment with Rihanna as she introduces her new makeup?
