While the eyes of the world are riveted on the USA, what's going on up here in the Great White North?
1. Why We Recycle
It took a group of neighbours in Calgary 3 years to save 600 milk cartons so they could build this multicoloured ice igloo. Even local teenagers helped in the teamwork by hauling wheelbarrows of snow for the mortar. Like good Canadians, the neighbours recycled the milk cartons afterwards and bought a bottle of hooch with the refund money to make hot toddies for the igloo's housewarming party.
2. No Problem, Just Rename It "Moby Private Part"
An ongoing Vancouver lawsuit concerns a condo corporation that is refusing to allow a local fish 'n chips shop named after Moby Dick to operate in the building's restaurant space. The condo board objects to the "offensive word" Dick in the restaurant's name, which it says will harm the building's image and lower property values. Guess they don't know that the great white whale's moniker is really based on the short form of "Richard," eh? What a buncha dicks!
3. And Finally . . . .
That's it for now, everyone. Keep your stick on the ice!
