Steps from the Canal

This tweet was making it rounds through Ottawa Twitter on Tuesday:

Anyone with a remote familiarity with using a street knows that the bicyclist pictured was exactly where he’s supposed to be, where the law tells him to be and where LEARN THE RULES! types would demand he be.

An Ottawa cop decided to set this driving enthusiast straight:

screen-shot-2016-09-06-at-11-41-33-pmOf course, Constable Benoit wasn’t the only one to set Tommy straight. Many Twitter users weighed in to explain how obviously and clearly wrong he was. What was interesting was how Tommy dug in, and just wouldn’t admit his error.

Even when a cop told him he didn’t understand the rules of the road, he couldn’t accept it.

He attempted to save some dignity by blaming the bicyclist for not triggering the light, but that’s not a dick of a bike rider. That’s a dick of a city planner or politician…

We are a sick species, before you get ready to go out, see why

Living to help other disabled people, and people in need, Change the sign!! And Earth

Next time you put on Perfume, lipstick, face cream or anything like that, keep these images below in your thinking, in-fact etch them into your brain. Because we are all guilty, we all complain about the mistreatment of Animals, but the Irony is, every single one of us is the reason this happens. Not the greatest imagies I want to share, but ones we need to take responsibility for because we are all guilty, as a species we complain but do nothing. There are people who won’t be into this and not use it, activists trying to stop it, but as I say, we are the guilty ones, or this wouldn’t happen, I am sure there are a ton more companies, but let’s pick on Loreal..Sorry, you can sue me because I am guessing you are not alone, there is a list at the bottom

This election, it’s time for an Canadian Disabilities Act

Melissa Graham

This election, it’s time for an Canadian Disabilities Act*. From coast-to-coast across Canada, disabled people and organization have been breaking down barriers without the support of or federal government, the individualized “solutions” miss the mark; access to society and quality of life is not created through tax breaks and savings plans.

Now is a time to call for change. It’s time for bold policy that benefits all disabled people living in Canada. It’s time to call on our MPs and perspective MPs for a Barrier-Free Canada.

The following is taken from a letter written by the Barrier Free Canada Committee:

Canada is one of the few developed countries that does not have a comprehensive nationally legislated Disabilities Act. It is imperative to have the rights of disabled people legitimized, recognized, and protected and we believe that an initiative such as ours can make this a reality.

What’s in it…

American dentist says he regrets killing Cecil the lion, but believed hunt was legal

Exposing the Big Game

For Cecil isn’t just any old lion. He’s one of Africa most famous and beloved lions, the star attraction at the Hwange national park, and a YouTube sensation for tourists.

He’s renowned as a gentle giant.

Such popularity cut no ice with Dr Palmer.

He and his fellow hunters tied a dead animal to their vehicle to lure Cecil out of the park, scenting an area half a kilometre away.

Cecil took the bait and strayed outside.

Dr Palmer pounced, firing his bow-and-arrow and striking Cecil.

He’s a great shot. 

A New York Times profile of him in 2009 said he was ‘capable of skewering a playing card from 100 yards with his compound bow.’

But Cecil didn’t die.

Instead, he stumbled off, wounded and bloodied, for 40 hours before Dr Palmer and his hunters finally caught up with him and shot him dead.

They then beheaded Cecil, and skinned…
