Delta apologizes after video shows college team’s golf bags tossed on the tarmac
  • If it was a Boeing plane, the golf clubs may have been safer on the tarmac.

  • A cool guide for programming languages
  • Right. This says Swift is a new programming language announced in 2014.

  • Tucker Carlson launches show on Russian state TV
  • So, I assume Fox is selling this to RTV. The big issue I see is that future shows are made to potentially sell in the future. They first air in America, then get sold to Russia. All written with the end goal of selling to Russia.

  • Tenants don’t have to foot unpaid tax bills for foreign landlords: minister - National | Globalnews.ca
  • I’m happy with that as long as there are strict rules to allow the tenant to keep renting at the current rate.

  • Shoppers Drug Mart Recruiting Volunteers to Staff Stores
  • It sounds like the Labour Relations Board should be made aware of this branch.

  • Shoppers Drug Mart Recruiting Volunteers to Staff Stores
  • They do. It’s likely that they aren’t aware that this store is trying to pull something illegal. Another form of action is to message Loblaws about this to make them aware.

  • Shoppers Drug Mart Recruiting Volunteers to Staff Stores
  • So, the owner of this specific store posted it. As much as I hate how Loblaws has been capitalizing on peoples’ needs, this isn’t Loblaws, it’s the owner of one store.

    But this also breaks labour laws. For-profit organizations can’t hire volunteers because it breaks minimum wage laws. An exception would be an internship for school.

    Best thing to do is report it.

  • What's the actual difference between greater vs metro cities?
  • “Metro” is used formally and is a formal designation used for things like statistical purposes. “Greater” is less formal and is used by the general public. I’ve heard Greater Vancouver far more than Metro Vancouver, but with those definitions, there are likely both.

  • Canada's 2024 wildfire season expected to be even worse than last year's
  • You can also order HEPA filters for those furnaces that filter smoke well. And if you have enough of those filters, you can tape one to the front of a box fan for a makeshift air purifier.

  • CRA headcount swells, while other tax agencies remain constant
  • The IRS is not something we should be comparing ourselves to. They’re incredibly understaffed.

    It’s like a tech company saying it has too many employees because they compare themselves to the employee count at Twitter. Sure, the numbers are small there, but…

  • Ladies if all the men of the world disappeared for 24 hours, they are fine they will come back, BUT during those 24 hours what are YOU doing?
  • No. You’re not a source of terror. But people don’t know that. They just see a man. The issue isn’t with you, it’s with common experiences women have had with men.

    There are so many bears that don’t hurt humans. But humans carry bear spray just in case the one they encounter is dangerous.

  • Ladies if all the men of the world disappeared for 24 hours, they are fine they will come back, BUT during those 24 hours what are YOU doing?
  • Women were talking about men in general. Some men took it as though they specifically were being targeted. If women don’t feel comfortable running alone at night because men can be predators, men in general should listen. When I hear that, I don’t take offence. I’m with you, I’ve never done anything. But we should be trying to figure out ways that women can feel more comfortable around men. Women shouldn’t need to feel like they have their guard up, and listening is the first step.

  • Are you ultra woke on purpose?
  • Correct answer. Sometimes I get things wrong, but I do my best to learn how I can do things to be more like this. Whatever label that is.

  • I’m in a park. The grass is being mown by a robot.
  • Absolutely it’s the best way forward. The catch is that it’s hard to calculate. If I write an app that saves someone 3 minutes of each work day, how much am I taxed on what I automated? We can just tax the rich, and assume they automate away everyone’s jobs.

  • If I had a nickel for every time this happened...
  • I agree it could have been split in 2. I felt that way after I read the book.
