Re: Crime rates

My thought was that Ralph Klein, former premier of Alberta, is someone who's head most people would like severed and delivered to them. I suppose shoving him through a wood chipper would work equally...

I can't say, I don't know Calgary well. I think physically it looks like Denver while the business world there is more like that in Houston. I bought a bag of weed there once from a guy who dressed...

Re: Crime rates

Thank you but I wish Chi_Nook would post about something other than my life.

This put me in mind of a car park attendant where I often park. He flames. One day I'm pulling out and I ask him how he is,

Re: Crime rates

That's an interesting piece. It's easy to see how the foreign population of places like Charlottetown and Halifax went up by such large percentages, that's just a second Chinese restaurant opening,...

I was pleased with that. However, criminality is at work in our backyard; the donkey led a charge up the hill and a mile down the road. I must now take the woman who had to herd them up strong drink...

Re: Crime rates

Then why did you suggest that Toronto could spread out so as to reduce the population density, it already stretches as far as the eye can see.

He should be able to speak French, yes, but it doesn't follow that he should speak French first and yet very many Prime Ministers (Trudeau, Chretien, Mulrooney) have been francophones. Donc, I think...

I asked that earlier but for different reasons; Jules doesn't seem to realize that there's some urban sprawl around Toronto.
