I'm against motion sensor lights in bathrooms. It may be environmentally friendly, but when I'm sitting down a two minute delay is not going to cut it. Leads to inconvenient darkness. This needs to change!

we haven't, yet. the legal limbo since the election is what's caused all the chaos.

Explosion source a firework, and has been reported as such for about 2 hours now.

Not to mention he wasn't on a bike and it was just his foot.

But hey, accuracy!

We're actually not in legal limbo - it is still illegal until the new legislation is passed which will contain regulations for sale, resale, etc. It's akin to the euthanasia legislation which was being debated and passed in recent weeks - until it the bill is enacted into law it is not law.

With respect to how it should be carried out, I'm not really sure. I don't even understand why we have the LCBO selling booze (well, I understand the government's motivations, rationale, I just think that's it's paternalistic and backwards in a free market). On a personal level I find the proposal to sell weed there to be kind of weird...mostly because I am thinking of my local LCBO which is just north of us in a crazy wealthy area full of old people with old money. I just cannot fathom them walking in to buy their $80 bottles of wine in the same store as the college kids buying pot. So I guess that either leaves convenience stores, but I know nothing about how good they are at enforcing the tobacco sales regulations so I can't support or oppose this. Or specific dispensaries which I imagine would be run similarly to independent pharmacies. Of course you'd need to fit these into neighbourhoods, I think probably some areas would have no issue with them moving in but there are a LOT of "not on my street!" folks around as well.

Generally speaking this has never been a topic of any real meaning or interest to me when it comes to voting time so I've not delved deeper into it. Maybe back when I was a young'in at school I'd have felt differently but now I am old and weathered.

Is anyone else out there concerned with the PokeMan GO game and the implications of a virtual world being overlapped with the real world. The reason I bring this up, is a rare PokeMan lives in the woods on my property. I have not authorized my property to be used in a virtual world, yet someone three times now, has opened the gate, come into the yard, and then left without closing the gate. My dog escaped one time because of this. We have air space rights legally in the world of law, but I am now wondering if this game is going to result in virtual space rights......hmmmmm

In college I knew people who walked around the woods at night and saw things; they didn't need an app for that...




But seriously, there is a neighborhood here in town that apparently has so many that it's causing traffic issues and the police have been called out so often they now have a regular patrol route there. I really know very little about it, but I find it interesting.

I think that's a real concern. I saw a note from someone online that he lived in a converted church ... well, Google didn't know it was a private home, so all these people re showing up.

I'm mostly just making amused snark about the phenomenon, but I'd be concerned as well.
