    Freedom Convoy protests [Split from All things 2019-nCoV]

    Our ratepayers association says (n) to the "strong mayor". They say it will decrease our property values, nature and quality of life. "All politics is local." Tradition, unimpeded by progress. :) But, they say you can't fight City Hall. Or, Queen's Park, for that matter. How will Toronto and...

    Victoria is facing a public-safety crisis

    Not so much around midnight, after a night of drinking and dancing, the lights are down low, and the available pickings are growing slimmer by the minute. :) I guess it's all done online now. 🤷‍♂️

    Assuming Queen's Park grants the divorce, will that increase or decrease rural / remote response times?

    A Deeply Fractured US

    If he were alive today, I wonder what John Wayne would have to say about the state of the union. Wayne, a staunch Republican, spoke these words at the pre-inaugural reception of President-elect Jimmy Carter - a Democrat,

    Victoria is facing a public-safety crisis

    Eddy G. never made a bad movie. Worth mentioning that they are seldom the call originator. More likely to be a concerned citizen who doesn't even know them. Toronto taxpayers had to cough up $10 million to the family of a deceased, not for refusing service. But, for simply delaying service.
