This is probably just another rant, one of thousands around about gas prices, and how outrageous they are, if that is what you guessed, then you are right, but there is a twist.  Last weekend, we went on a quick road trip to Ottawa ( from Montreal ) to visit some family.  That isn’t the purpose of this story, but what I wanted to flag down was the price difference of gas between there and here. The price when we filled up in Ottawa on Friday evening was 1.229$/liter in Ottawa, and 1.329$/Liter in Montreal.  This… Read Article →

As many of you are aware, there have been massive protests with regards to students protesting the cost of an education in Quebec. Quebec has the lowest tuitions fees in all of Canada, about 1/3 of the costs in Ontario. Let me get the simple things out of the way first. Am I for a free education, of course(with some reservations), do I approve or even support these spoilt little brats in the methods HELL NO. I think education is something that should be free, that everyone from every walk of life that are local… Read Article →

First, I would like to say congrats to Randy.  First, for being promoted to head coach for the Montreal Canadians, and second for having the guts to take over as head coach for the Montreal Canadians.  Unlike most hockey fans in Montreal, I have nothing against Jacques Martin.  As far as I am concerned, he wasn’t on the ice, so he isn’t the one that should be taking the blame for the poor performance of the team.  Did he pull off a herculean effort in winning with poor player performance by finding “magical” lineups, and… Read Article →

This week-end I almost feel over with the news that i received.  the reason for my reaction, was the complete and utter disgrace that our justice system has turned into.  I will explain to the best of my ability the situation, and let you be the judge. A good friend of the family called my house on Friday in tears.  She had just received a telephone call from her EX’s parents ( the father of her 2 children ).  They feared that he was suicidal.  Not to sound mean or anything, but our concern wasn’t… Read Article →

OK, this post was meant to go out a couple weeks ago, but with some things came up, so its a little out of context, but I needed to get this out anyways. I’m an avid supported of public transportation, yes it can definitely improve, but I still take it everyday of the week, and will continue doing so, until its not an option.  After reading that statement, you think you can probably predict what i’m going to say next, but you would be wrong.  The campaign held in Montreal known as “En ville sans voiture” that… Read Article →

I am proud to call myself a Canadian, and proud to be from Montreal ( but don’t tell anyone. ).  In the past couple of years, we have seen our proud and wonderful city begin to fall into ruin.  From overpasses falling down on the highway, to trains falling over on bridges to bridges being considered unsafe to drive on, to potholes the size of a VW beetle, how can we hope to attract tourists ( which means revenue ), respect and prestige that was once common place with Montreal. People would come from all… Read Article →

Most, if not all of you at some point have received your fair share of spam, and i don’t mean the meat.  Now spam comes in multiple formats and delivery methods.  You’ve got your get cheap drugs spam, dietary supplement spam, pornographic spam, the “enlarge/increase ….” spam.  Something for everyone. With the popularity of social media, spammers have just multiplied their medium.  I normally completely ignore it, but this past week, i happen to reply to a friend over twitter regarding IPhone and Google + topic.  I happened to mention the word IPhone in my tweet,… Read Article →

Ok, I’m not necessarily going to pick specifically on Canada Post or their union, just unions in general. Unlike most people in the IT profession, I’ve had the “pleasure” of working for a union before.  Not in IT, but during one of those character building summer jobs, in a steel mill.  During my time there I also had the “pleasure” of being part of two one day strikes.  I never did hear the details, as it really didn’t concern me, I was only a part time worker. From that experience, the experience my wife goes… Read Article →
