    agreed!! I closed my eyes for a chunk of it because I find his voice very good for my blood pressure. I miss him.

    Anyhow on the Canadian front I guess Doug Ford will have to settle for cryin in his " buck a beer " today as his
    " slash the council in half plan " was overturned in the Supreme Court. They say they will appeal but there will not be enough time before this next election.

    Or not.

    It's fun when liberals underestimate conservatives.

    That's why Trump is president and Ford is premier.

    If you have involvement with marijuana in Canada, the US Customs agents can say "no" to your entry into the US:

    https://www.thespec.com/news-story/8...tion-official/

    This rule could affect children with custodial parents in say two countries and if the Canadian one if any way uses/works in the industry/invests in marijuana>there could be an access issue brewing for the US parent.

    Or say within the family, one adult has a connection to marijuana--that behaviour could thwart the other family members' ability to travel in the US for a destination cruise or special trip or to attend work-related conferences.

    I luv ya girl, no need to hold your tongue. When issues get larger most of the folks on the left and right in the west are on the same side. We all want a better world for our kids and grandkids. We all have the same goal but may disagree on the best path to get there. That doesn't make us enemies, or shouldn't. It's sad that so many on the left and on the right in the west demonize each other.

    @heartgirl99

    I don't think they are going to grant the accuser Dr. Ford a fair investigation by the FBI ( FIRST ) to actually gather any witnesses who may corroborate her claims of the alleged assault and make them testify under oath.
    Mr. Judge ( the other student who she says was in the room at the time ) has said ( not under oath ) that these allegations about his classmate are untrue, and further that he personally has no memory of Kavanaugh ever behaving in that manner at any time.
    It is very very different to swear under oath about it.

    Imho she will NOT be given fair treatment wrt her allegations about Brett Kavanaugh......which smells all too familiar! ( Anita Hill ) and we all know where that disgusting man still sits ( on the Supreme Court! )
    That snapshot in history of a lone and terrified young black woman answering questions regarding Clarence Thomas from an all white male panel shows us that not that much has changed in the Senate.

    I read THIS article from yesterday afternoon and then felt hopeful that someone......ANYONE who actually remembers the incident through the grapevine or whatever could come forward to testify on behalf of Dr. Ford.
    Clearly, Dr Ford did NOT just make this whole story up.

    Saw the headline on Friday's morning show and really expect that there won't be a postal strike next week!
    An arbitrator has released a ruling in a long-standing pay equity dispute at Canada Post that gives rural carriers a hefty pay increase.A spokesman for the Crown agency says a preliminary review of the ruling indicates rural and suburban postal workers, known as RSMCs, could see a 25-per-cent hike in their wages, plus increases in other benefits.

    Arbitrator Maureen Flynn issued the ruling to Canada Post and the Canadian Union of Postal Workers Thursday after the two sides failed to reach an agreement on their own by an Aug. 30 deadline.

    I am so bleary eyed. Have watched since the first hour this morning of Dr Blasey-Ford's sexual assault testimony as well as Brett Kavanaugh's defense version during his testimony. The Partisan lines are so clear. GOP will likely vote to confirm him, Dems will vote no.
    After hearing Dr Ford speak it would be tough for me to believe that moderate Republican Senators Murkowski, Collins and Flake would vote yes.
    Only TWO of them would have to vote no to turn his nomination down and another nominee can be chosen.

    at last.. at least an appearance of something being done in an apolitical manner.

    after yesterday's credible testimony by dr ford and justice kavanaugh's sham, hysterical testimony:
