March 2015

More daylight to enjoy snow

Hold your hand up if you have had enough of the winter of 2015?

Even in radio I can tell there are a lot of you holding your hands up.

Weather prognosticators have said winter will continue for a while; and we are most likely in for a slow spring simply due to the cold and late thaw we will experience.

We all remember last year, even more so now, because it feels like we’re reliving it this year.

This year we have more snow and it’s been regular, although only a couple of major snow events.

Last year it thawed then got cold, that’s what gave us frost quakes.

This year’s it’s been continually cold with snow that stays, accumulating over time.

Either way it’s enough winter.

Ski hills out west in Alberta and B.C. have had a dismal season whereas here in Ontario it’s shaping up to be a banner year.

The problem is even though there is lots of snow, by March, people are dreaming of golf weather.

One sure sign of spring is the time change this weekend that sees the clocks move ahead one hour on Sunday.

So we will all have one more hour of daylight, to enjoy the snow!

I’m Scott Thompson.

Toronto Police creating more mystery than tunnel

Mar 3, 2015 5:00 AM

Last week we were all wondering what the story was behind a tunnel that was constructed in a wooded area very close to York University.

The tunnel looked too sophisticated for any reasonable explanation. No one affiliated with the university is involved.

Immediately people’s thoughts moved towards a terrorist plot considering the proximity to the Pam Am Games site and world actions of late.

Police yesterday issued a press release basically saying, nothing to see here folks, move along.

They say the party involved poses no threat to society and the case is closed.

If the police want the public’s help in fighting terror (or other crimes) they should do more to make them feel like they are part of the solution.

Withholding information on what is obviously a very suspicious set of circumstances does nothing to build confidence between the police and the public.

It may be a personal situation that is none of our business but the police should employ better public relations tactics, to at least attempt, to explain the situation to a nervous public.

The media is the message, not the content

It was buzzing around social media last Thursday; everyone wanted to know if the dress was white and gold, blue or black and even more so, why we care.

My niece got the discussion started in our family and by the weekend it had even made the national newscasts.

It started when someone tweeted a picture asking what colour a dress was as the friends could not decide.

Neither could the rest of the world.

Some were left shaking their heads wondering why so many got involved.

Since everyone sees colour little differently, a common answer was impossible.

Many seemed unaware of this fact and a hearty discussion ensued on social media.

In the end the message here is not the colour of a dress. 

The message is when something as simple as this gets our attention we have the power to spread it like wild fire across the internet.

The media is the message here, not the content.

I’m Scott Thompson.
