    Rob Ford also hates reporters fucking with him on his property, and has called the cops on the CBC in the past, this reporter obviously wasn't thinking if he thought the mayor would ignore him, a lowly newspaper reporter, snooping around his house when he'll call the cops on the CBC. At the very least, he should have at least told the mayor what he was doing, and that it would all be on public property, if he's going to be fucking around right behind his backyard. I can understand why the mayor would get pissed if he thought someone was taking pictures of his house and possibly his kids inside, and I can understand why he wanted the guy to turn his phone off, so he wouldn't go trying to take more pictures. The reporter did nothing technically wrong if he never took photos over Ford's fence, but with the reputation Ford has with media and his house, this guy's just an idiot, it almost seems like he wanted this to happen just to try and mar Ford's image.

    Reporters tend to use video recording to ward off threats of violence, especially when he was incapacitated by rage enough to not remember what happened in the altercation. from what I've heard, Ford recognized the guy as a reporter and was having none of his explanations. It just seems a huge grey area full of confusion and anecdotal evidence that's just going to be more and more of a shit show as time goes on, and both parties could have had a bit more tact. Though apparently the Fords have video surveillance footage they're reluctant to release?


    I'm not too terribly bother by this to be honest, Canadian mayors have done worse things

    Even just Toronto mayors, apparently one was a murderer in the past. The Sun ran an article about Toronto's weirdest mayors, and I'm not even sure Mel Lastman was one of them, despite calling in the army to shovel snow...

    No, Ryerson is more in the centre, it's literally on Yonge-Dundas, and Yonge is the east/west dividing line in the city.

    A wonderful sunny day and the birds are singing outside
    Meh I'll just stay home and browse internet all day

    It is my first year in Vancouver, but the weather doesn't seem to be as bad as everyone says. I mean it rains quite often, but the rain isn't annoying like in other places and it dries out really quickly without leaving any mud. I like the climate in here

    You're quite lucky this year, usually there's more rain, more wind, more snow.

    Oh man I know, I woke up at 5:30 to go to work and had to scrape off my car. During work probably 10cm accumulated on the ground. Then at 2:30 when I was off it was pretty much all gone and 8 outside. This weather is retarded.

    Today though, nice and bright and 11. No fog in sight but there's a bit of a breeze cooling things off.

    It strikes me that if you are age 12 and you were born in Vancouver, you have grown up in a world after:

    1: The cellphone was a luxury item
    2: Highway 1 wasn't under a state of constant construction

    Yes, Canada is a federation, but the process of forming the country was "Confederation." The term doesn't really have any bearing on reality.

    Highschool in most places starts in grade 9, except in NS and probably some other places too.

    THE. SUN. THE GOD DAMN SUN. IN NEWFOUNDLAND, FOR TWO FUCKING DAYS STRAIGHT.

    You guys have no idea how nice it is to be able to look out your bathroom window and not see fog or rain for the first time in like two weeks. I think It actually made me aroused

    Only if you have middle schools I believe. In B.C., as far as I know anyway, it's just elementary (K-7) and high school (8-12).
