Re: French School in Montreal

But not wildly so, unless you're dealing with an extreme like Gaspe or New Brunswick; then it's like trying to speak English with a Geordie. By and large, the French and the Canadians can understand...

Re: Petty crime

The local facebook groups here are full of people fretting about small time crime. I don't know that rates have increased but I think it probable. Meth is popular in small towns and, during a...

Re: Petty crime

I haven't seen any crimes but the local media is full of complaints about the wave of petty crime.

Re: What we driving in canada ? Any good deals (post covid)

There are lots of little griege cars on the road here, I have to read the logos to tell them apart and. even then, they tend to be highly styled Hs so there's really no brand differentiation. I...

Re: What we driving in canada ? Any good deals (post covid)

Something that baffles me locally is how people know the order of go at specific crossroads. The way it goes in the UK, and I think this is probably the law here, it that vehicles turning across the...

Re: Masks

Oh yes, fair enough. I'm completely adjusted to 6' and wearing a mask. It's no bother. I'm far from sure to live long enough to see the end of that need.

Re: Masks

I don't know anyone who has had Covid. One daughter had malaria, another had SARS which is, I suppose, as close as one can get to Covid. The SARs was much more serious, long time in intensive cars,...

Re: Trump Trump Trump

I didn't bother asking over the financial allegations made against Biden, not because I think they're true but because Trumpists can never do that. They just take whatever Trump is doing and say that...

Re: Trump Trump Trump

I think the rest of your post is just Trump projection but this interests me. If it were true that Harris, a black person, particulary (sic) locked up black people, how would that make her a left...

Re: Masks

MillieF, I have a daughter who is autistic and who rocks back and forth with enough vigour to break the frames of seats in cars and aeroplanes. Melatonin worked for us. Coping with such an extreme...

Re: Masks

Did you read your link? I've quoted it below. You will note that, while that is not a drive-in congregation, there isn't room for that in Toronto, all manner of precautions are being taken. The crowd...

Re: Masks

But the way they do it now is that everyone stays in their car inside a large building. There's no close proximity to the other attendees.

Re: Masks

There aren't any gatherings of people here, everything is cancelled. It could be the rule of two and a half and, locally, everyone would already be in compliance.

Re: Masks

Oh, stop it with the whataboutism. It doesn't matter what other people do.

The child should probably not be on the plane in the first place, what's the justification for that during the pandemic?...

Re: Trump Trump Trump

I don't think the attacking Biden approach really works as it invites comparison of the candidates and Trump is corrupt, a racist, a misogynist, probably a rapist and is mentally and physically...

Re: Masks

But

Me too. But the parents could have avoided that by drugging the child. I had one that was difficult to manage on planes so, rather than make the other passengers suffer, we'd send her to...

Re: Masks

A plastic bag over the rowdy child's head would have fixed this problem.

Re: Trump Trump Trump

I understand fear of certain cities. I'm nervous in Baltimore, New Orleans and even Jersey City. I'm scared all the time in East Saint Louis and in Gary. I find it odd, not frightening but odd, to...

Re: Trump Trump Trump

He may want to do that because in-person votes are more likely to be Trump votes than mail-in votes. Of course, claiming to have won after Florida declares only works if you've won Florida.

Re: Trump Trump Trump

The poster, a well established RWNJ, is sticking his fingers in his ears and shouting "I can't see you". I don't think most voters are going to do that so, unless another Electoral College fluke...

He's not running on his record, his campaign acknowledges that the country is in a bad way and attributes that to Democrat Mayors and Governors and to the Chinese.

His pitch this time around is...

Re: Trump Trump Trump

That seems like 100 years ago. Since then we've had him knowing that the voting machines in Florida were hacked in his favour. Knowing in the spring that COVID-19 is an airborne disease and choosing...

Re: Canadians 'eh'......

UofT isn't so bad, at least not the main campus, it's in central Toronto so one would be exposed to a range of people and news outside the school if not within it. People who went to Waterloo really...
