One thing I notice in Vancouver is, on my way to work at 4am gas is on average 1-3 cents cheaper vs my commute home at 3pm.

And a station called Super Saver Gas tends to be the same price as the name brand station across the street, so no Super Savings...

Frost advisory for the Algonquin area tonight. August 31st. That's crazy!

https://weather.gc.ca/warnings/index_e.html?prov=son (or for those on Facebook)

Don't think paddling in the lake and sitting enjoying the sunsets on warm summer evenings will be on my list of activities for Tobermory next week.

Damn. 1st holiday in more than 10 years too

I don't know what you're complaining about it's going to be up to 29c in a few days time.

Tolls on the Port Mann and Golden Ears bridges end Friday | Globalnews.ca


I don't think this will be a long term thing, I see some sort of road pricing in the future where drivers pay per km, which I am okay with provided it's province wide.

This morning, for the first time this season, I saw zero on the car thermometer.

Apparently there was frost on the car. I was asleep in bed so can't verify.

I was late going out as I had to go to the hospital in Brampton. If going to work I might have frost. Previously it's been difficult to be seen at that hospital, people had to be checked in, the receptionist didn't know their languages nor even which language was being spoken, it took all day to register one patient and an angry mob of waiting patients would mutter Babelicly in the background.

Now it's a miracle of technology. Swipe healthcard, confirm, or edit, details using a menu of umpteen languages and press yes, oui, da, oi, whatever buttons, to a series of questions in letters or script or whatever format the language requires, presented on a big screen. Very clever.
