Good video! It is a funny relationship. Sometimes I felt like it was being in a satellite... we get all the info but are not quite as "hands-on" as the dwellers on the terrain. But that might be changing... I always love it when I can connect with an American who has dropped their preconceptions about us... even if some of those preconceptions might have been true! 😂🤣

A man who wanted to join the protests in Canada’s capital over mask mandates called in a bomb threat so police would waste their time chasing it, authorities said, but he called the wrong Ottawa — a village in Ohio.

The man, a 20-year-old from Akron, Ohio, called the Putnam county sheriff’s office twice Monday, said sheriff’s Capt Brad Brubaker.

The first time he made a bomb threat, and then in a second call he said he had been shot, Brubaker said. That’s when the man found out he was talking with someone in Ohio.

“He wasn’t paying attention and just called the first number he found,” Brubaker told The Lima News. “He said he was mad about mask mandates.”

The sheriff’s office said it would ask the county prosecutor to consider charges against the man. (...)

These graphics show just how much record-breaking rain hit southern B.C. recently - CBC


What are atmospheric rivers, and how are they affecting the B.C. floods? - CBC


For a misleading view, take a look at this CBC news article:  Why are the B.C. floods so bad? Blame the wildfires, at least in part



The Coquihalla River tore through the bridge supporting the 4-lane (and very economically important) Coquihalla Highway just upstream/east of Hope, BC like it was cardboard.   I know the river and the location really well and never would have imagined such an event in a 200-year time period.

Heck, Winnipeg is on it's second statue of Riel by the Legislature. They both were crap imo but at least the Metis were consulted about the current one

Louis Riel?  Re-evaluate?   Huh!?!!   

OK, maybe my situation was special.  I grew up in a materially comfortable suburb of Ottawa.   Riel was already treated as a Canadian hero back in the 1960s and 1970s.

Along with other notables such a Sir John A. MacDonald — one of the drunk fathers of confederation, and Norman Bethune, the hard partying doctor from Montreal who died working with Chairman Mao.  

Prime minister William Lyon MacKenzie King (first half of the 20th century) is fondly remembered by some Canadians for holding seances with "Leonardo da Vinci, Wilfrid Laurier, his dead mother, his grandfather, and several of his dead dogs, as well as the spirit of the late President Roosevelt." (wiki-page)

Americans revere Great Men.  Canadians revere weird characters, often with severe substance abuse issues.   Quebec has a different set of heroes though Riel and Bethune are admired by many.  Canadian FNs will ultimately develop their own heroes.

Canada Turns Over Military Sexual Assault Cases to Civilian Courts
With the military’s leadership in crisis, a new defense minister adopted a recommendation to remove prosecutorial authority for sexual misconduct cases from the armed forces.



“They simply still don’t get it,” Prime Minister Justin Trudeau said last month about how the military deals with sexual assault and misconduct.

Yup.  Same can be said about the corrupt behaviour of senior officers and retired senior officers who continue to work for the military.

Let there be light.

3 strikes and you're outed: Brian Pallister makes another inflammatory comment about Indigenous relations
Brian Pallister's latest gaffe — and reluctance to acknowledge it — further illustrates his unusual leadership

Mr. Pallister is the premier of the province of Manitoba which has one of  Canada's largest indigenous populations in proportional terms.

Pallister does a nice justification of 'killing and taking', i.e., colonialism.  Any similarity between premier Pallister and political leaders in other countries is pure coincidence.   Besides, Canadians are 'nice'.    Too polite to say anything and very good at forgetting quickly.

Better guess than mine.  I have not seen one of those Toyota Corona station wagons on the road in a long time.  Seem to recall they were vulnerable to rust.
