I like bikes and skis and beer and rugby and good urban policy. I dislike sprawl quite a bit. More professional stuff

p.s.: you might sometimes be uncomfortable with what they say or how they say it. That's the point. Keep listening. You might not always agree with what they say or how they say it. Remember, it's not about you. Keep listening.

🙏🏿+ perfect timing. A lot of ppl asking me how they can be part of a solution and not the problem. Step 1 IMO is listening to voices of black womxn. You can start with these:

Canadian Forces in 🇺🇸 Jun 1
They were rejected by recruiters during WWI. They fought to fight for a country that thought they were less than equal. They prevailed. They were called our best kept military secret. Remember their rejection, their fight. Remember No. 2 Construction Battalion. They are Us.

George Floyd and I were both arrested for allegedly spending a counterfeit $20 bill. For George Floyd, a man my age, with two kids, it was a death sentence. For me, it is a story I sometimes tell at parties. That, my friends, is White privilege.

Well, glad that the Ottawa Mayor is disgusted by the murder of George Floyd. Remember Abdirahman Abdi? Did he protest the *checks notes* Ottawa City Hall? Or stay on vacation?

Here is a good one for smug Canadians. Remember 6 mo. ago when the police arrested and handcuffed a 12 year old indigenous girl because the bank didn't believe it was possible she could have money and want to open an account? Handcuffed! 12 year old girl!

Bring HST up 2% and a 25 cent a litre gas tax. Plus bring in/increase the luxury tax on cars over 100,000, boats over 50,000, and homes over 1,000,000

For info Leipzig are the most hated team in the Bundesliga, because they are seen as corporate interlopers (which is accurate, but ignores that money rules all now). I see it as a bit of anti-East Germany bias, and find them a really fun team.

Thunder Bay has a fantastic restaurant run by the Finnish Workers Cooperative where you can get the best pancakes in Canada. Relatedly, there was a lot of Finnish immigration to Thunder Bay
