Canadians: Go Vote.

This is a sim­ple, short post. If you’re a Cana­di­an: Go Vote! Sim­ply put, thou­sands have died this year for the right to vote.  It’s true that major par­ties prac­tice the pol­i­tics of divi­sion and destruc­tion.  I’ve post­ed my opin­ions on this.  … Con­tin­ue read­ing

Contempt Begins at Home, a Contemplation…

Canada Post: Lack of Tracking Embarrasing

I like new toys.  Who does­n’t.  Most couri­er ser­vices offer online track­ing to reduce the load on their call cen­ters, but it also adds val­ue.  I might not call sev­er­al times a day to watch the progress of my new … Con­tin­ue read­ing
