Gun violence glorified

Ottawa has a gun problem. Gang members are shooting each other. Most likely the shooters are selling drugs. It's dangerous. Especially for families and children.

So what do I see on my neighbourhood bus shelter? Why a great big gun advert of course, with two big druggy buffoon motorcycle gang guys with two big honking guns: Sons of Anarchy. Brought to you by Rogers. Fantastic.

We have gun violence in Ottawa. We have gun adverts in Ottawa. Splendid.

Get the employer to pay for sick notes

"Nova Scotia physician Ethel Cooper-Rosen is going to start charging employers $30 for sick notes, saying they put unnecessary pressure on the health-care system and expose other patients in her waiting room to viruses."
If employers, especially bureaucrats, want to make employees pay with both time and money to get a sick note, turn the tables and make the employer put their request in writing, and then bill the employer.
