The Stephen Harper 'Enemies List' is about to become the law of the land.
I've started to have a repetitive nightmare.
The light in the hearing room is bright, hot and pointed right at me. The heat is suffocating, and I am visibly sweaty, the senator leans over, taps his microphone and begins to read questions from a typed sheet.
"Mr. Fenton, Have you ever donated to or been a member of the Sierra Club of Canada?"
"Do you own a book or books written by Dr. David Suzuki?"
"Did you or did you not write blog posts that were critical of the oilsands?"
That's usually about the time I wake up, but instead of relief that my nightmare is over, I make the mistake of turning on the radio or picking up the paper to find my speculative fiction becoming more and more real.
