1. I did not hear his entire interview but I did hear him say he was a good person...please see the man, not the name...want a second chance. What I would have liked to hear is some sort of pledge to his country! Maybe that he loves Canada and will abide by its laws or something. Perhaps his lawyer advised against that because everyone would see right through it. Well, almost everyone.
  2. This makes my blood boil. Who the hell are the school boards to tell a parent that their child cannot have timely access to their inhaler? They are not doctors or medical professionals. This is the result of "Zero Tolerance" involves zero thinking.
    If it were my kid I would give the school one inhaler and him another to carry with him unbeknownst to the school staff. If he got caught and it was taken from him I would head down there and raise hell each and every time. In fairness to the teachers they don't have much to do with this sort of idiotic policy making. Time to stand up for our rights as parents. No one - NO ONE can tell me how my kids' medication can be stored or administered.
    I would hire the meanest junk yard dog lawyer I could find and sue the board - or whoever was responsible - into oblivion and made sure several people lost their jobs.
    Disgusting abuse of power.
  3. @DawnP Studies done in Texas have shown that full day kindergarten kids do have a slight advantage over other grade 1. That advantage is gone by grade 3. $1B/year so kids can be slightly ahead for 2 years? Not worth it. But we get to employ more teachers so that should make the union happy.
  4. @AnNH_7721 Be careful what you wish for. I, too would like to see judges accountable to the public. However, in the U.S., the elected judge becomes just another politician. And no judge wants to lose his job because he appears to be soft on crime. So you end up with judges who give some kid 5-10 for a bag of pot.
  5. @StuG Aaaannnd that's the reply of a man with no comeback. Well done!
  6. @Adriane Taylor 100% agree, Adriane. Although he could have been a bit more tactful, I fully support the sentiment and the frustration with which it was delivered. Not anti-immigration at all, not even anti-burka, but your religion does not supersede the laws of the country of which you are becoming a citizen. I'm sure Justin will be making some comment full of disgust about "racist" comments from a Conservative.
  7. OK, great so read the fine print. Then what? Turn around and pack up my family and head home? Only solution is too boycott these places unless and until they provide a more reasonable waiver. I'm not at all litigious but a ski resort can't absolve itself of all responsibility just by saying "Well you signed off on it...".
  8. Where do I find the video!?!? Need to!!!
  9. Why are we giving this clown more press? It only serves as encouragement to the next jihadi looking to make a name. I think, in all cases of domestic terrorism or mass shootings, we don't print their name or their picture and if we happen to take them alive we put a bag on their head until they are in prison.
  10. @63r01d Oh, but then they wouldn't get their video and become YouTube stars! Used to be the ultimate goal was to be on TV. Now everybody wants fame on the internet. That's why you get people filming tragedies instead of, you know, trying to help. Like a human being.
