Re: Does Canada have a national rail system anymore?

The military must step aside from shovelling snow down east and open rail lines TODAY! Who is in charge of this country?

Re: Does Canada have a national rail system anymore?

Where is the fucking government of Canada? Are we going to have an open rail system nationwide? If not, why not in the second largest nation on earth? Who is running this dog and pony show?

Get Alberta Out!

Re: Mitt Romney is a piece of crap

I didn't mind him as the Governor of Massachusetts or as head of the Salt Lake Olympics. As a lifelong Red Sox fan the 85 years of futility which ended in 2004 saw him replacing defaced road signs on the Mass Pike in declaring my Sox the World Champions. They've won it three times more since. I'm no...

Re: Ein forum, ein thread

Ten years ago they said holes in the ozone layer was our certain doom. I wondered what to do with my cat. 20,000 years ago much of now Canada was covered by a glacier which succeeded well in the USA. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Laurentide_Ice_Sheet. What caused the glacier to go away with no truck...

Re: Does Canada have a national rail system anymore?

So in my lazy retirement, I work a couple of short shifts a week at Sobeys to get out of the house. As an adult, I've noted that a head of lettuce was .99¢ my entire life except it's now $2.99 or more - likely carbon tax but nobody talks about that because you'd be a facist if you question the Troot...

Why are we allowing ANY travellers from China into the western hemisphere at this point?

Re: Worries grow that quarantine in China not enough to stem increasingly virulent coronavirus

I ride transit in the winter. My downtown routes now exclude the 134 and 140, otherwise referred to as "Orient Express" through Chinatown. I've often been the only caucasian on the bus while they all yell at the top of their lungs in giberish. WTF? China has to be addressed. General MacArthur was ri...

I found his Presidential Medal of Freedom somewhat embarrassing. Very poor taste and timing.

Re: Ontario elementary school teachers to hold province-wide one-day strike next week

The poor kids. 6 or 7 years ago holes in the ozone layer were the doom of all of us. Except whoops. That never happened. We continue to hurtle through space as though we have control over anything. It's gotta be a tough life being a kid these days.

What is his revolution over? Walking to school like the rest of us did? Cutting the grass? Shovelling the drive? Making his bed? Using the hamper? Helping with dishes? Washing BOTH cars every weekend?

Re: Who would make the best CPC leader, and why?

I've heard more than once locally of Rona Ambrose quietly looking at it. Very interesting.

I worked the bi-election in Parkland-Sturgeon when she stepped away. Very popular here.
