On Wednesday, CBC had a little contest on Twitter that I took part in. The “Tweets from 2112” contest asked for headlines from the future, and seemed like too much fun to resist. So, I didn’t.
On my way into work (relax – I commute on transit) I rattled off a few. When I peaked at the #canadawrites hashtag just before entering the office, it was slim pickings. So of course, I added some more on my lunch break. By then, my fellow creative Canucks had weighed in with their precise prognostications and brief imaginings.
For posterity, here are my contributions:

Good enough to win? Who knows, that’s up to the judges. I got a much needed kick in the creative pants which is what I was after.
