I really think the Provincial Government needs to step up and ban the internet to anyone who is so fucking nosy. I wonder what vice you have that the government should ban. That could be a fun conversation!
There've been a couple of accidents where the published report ends with "No charges are expected to be laid". In other words, the pedestrian crossed in such a manner that the driver isn't at fault.
Yo. Your special snowflake isn't going to drop dead from not having PB&J for a whole day. Promise. And PC products have the nut-free symbol on them, so there goes that rant too.
It's odd that it seems that the folks who are the most vocal about not "catering" to the needs of others seem to be the most entitled themselves.
If you're having a hard time shelling out cash for name-brand snacks, here's a thought: bake your own. Not terrifically hard (and hardly an original thought either).
At the end of the day, a kid's right to public school trumps your hurt feefees over the peanut ban. Grow a pair.
Codiac even has free wifi on the buses - now that's progressive thinking! My family lives in Moncton and they have such better scheduling, it's pathetic. Express buses that run a quick route between downtown and the outlier shopping areas - no need for a schedule: if you miss one, another will be along in 10 minutes. We only get that kind of service on the 1 - which is almost always packed to capacity. The 52? What a joke. No seats available during rush hour and often many other times. Running the articulated buses has helped somewhat, but there needs to be more responsive scheduling, period. A fill and go policy on the major routes would help overcrowding and drive better access - no-one needs to squeeze onto a standing-room only bus because a) a bus with more seats is coming along right behind it and b) they can still get where they're going on time for the same reason.
Scheduling needs to be more passenger-driven and not just however Metro Transit decides to flail about. Many areas of the city are completely inaccessible by bus. When my boyfriend and I moved twice in the last six years, one of our major concerns was proximity to a bus stop. A lot of buildings were just too far for an easy walk, especially in winter.
