Southern Ontario is in transportation HELL!!!

The HOV lanes are a great idea if you are one of the very few privileged enough to take advantage of them.

However if you are one of the vast majority, who they don’t apply to, no one seems to care.

Southern Ontario is in transportation hell and HOV lanes are a band aid solution at best.

Why does government think they have to take something away from you in order to get you to try the alternative?

Here a novel idea, make the alternative better, and we’ll chose what is best.

You can’t take away a lane of traffic and expect people will use alternatives that aren’t even there.

The answer is to build, build, and build, transportation infrastructure that is visionary. 

We should have been doing this 30 years ago instead of passing it on to the next generation to play catch up.

If anything, the Pan Am games are just a preview of the traffic hell we’ll be in very soon, if we don’t start building big, now.

Paris prank

I’m sure you have all heard about the prank played on socialite Paris Hilton in which she supposedly thought she was about to die in a plane crash.

The video shows Paris on a plane when apparently something goes terrible wrong and all onboard are told to assume the crash position.

Imagine what it must be like during those last few seconds when the passengers realize what is happening and the end is near.

Boy it just doesn’t get any funnier than that does it?

Turns out everybody was in on the joke and its great fodder for social media.

Rumour has it Paris will sue the pranksters but many question whether she was in on it all along.

Boy this just gets better doesn’t it?

Insert your own privileged, bored, rich kid remarks here. (At 35.)

It’s amazing how shallow we have become in our never ending pursuit of happiness.

I’m Scott Thompson.

Happy Canada Day eh!

Happy Canada Day eh!

But what does it all mean?

Other than we get the day off and banks, beer stores, LCBO, government offices are closed.

Canada Day is the national day of Canada, a federal statutory holiday celebrating the anniversary of the July 1, 1867, enactment of the British North America Act, 1867 (today called the Constitution Act, 1867), which united three colonies into a single country called Canada within the British Empire.

It is affectionately known as Canada’s birthday marking the union of the British North American Colonies of Nova Scotia, New Brunswick and the Province of Canada which included Ontario and Quebec.

Originally called Dominion Day, the holiday was renamed in 1982, the year the Canada Act was passed and the Constitution Act patriated the Canadian constitution.

That is why it is always held on July 1st despite the day of the week, which makes the Canadian long weekend even more elusive.

No wonder there is always drinking and fireworks….
