JUSTICE !!! o, oops you live, and have to cope with - the concepts of a different half of this planet. meh.
Um, merely surmising, that there may well be a concept ... Gaia, named by James Lovelock (was he born with that- or faked?)OK, name jests aside. "Gaia" is the concept of the planet on which all life lives. There is, at this point, any 'proof' that there is any other "mother" of "father" out there in the Cosmos.This Planet is the only one we (sentient sentient humanoids) HAVE.
I'm glad it's somewhere, Debra!
I bet it would be really annoying to be a judge or a police officer in that town.
When someone says they are looking for justice you can now give them directions!
Looks like a just place.Were there a city called Justice here in the States, it would turn out to have the most corrupt police force and judges in the Western hemisphere.
I feel that this place is taking all the justice for itself. It should share some with the rest of us.
From here, that's quite a distance to Justice. But, it's doable!
Oh God is this here?and i was looking for it madly all around.....
Well thank God Justice is somewhere.
Sadly, a lotta folks don't know how to get there, or they don't wanna make the trip.
there it is
I am happy to hear justice has been discovered!
Heh, heh, heh.
I wonder if they have justice in Justice?
I got some funny town names in Texas too like "Cut and Shoot". The Montgomery County town was named after a fight in 1912.
So that’s where it went!
I wonder why it is called Justice?
I used to work with someone who had a dog named Bitely. He was named after a little town she came across in Pennsylvania. What a perfect name for a dog. We have no Justice in the U.S. At least not that I know of.Love,Janie
Yes, but I have to go to Canada to find it!
LOL, Love it---Justice is also a clothing store for 12 year old girls. lol xo Diana
@ Rosemary -- Your question got me wondering. I always assumed that the name represented the hopes, dreams and aspirations of its settlers. So I checked in an online reference book called "Place Names of Manitoba" and this is what I found out about Justice --"Originally called Aikenside, after a school which was named by one of the first teachers who was reading a book by that name. The community came into being in 1890 when Fred and Isaac Lewis opened a store in the district. A post office was soon established and mail was brought from the CPR [Canadian Pacific Railway] on Tuesdays and Saturdays. In 1907 the Grand Trunk Pacific Railway arrived and the name Justice was selected to fit into an alphabetical chain."Oh dear, the truth is SO prosaic! They simply needed some name that started with "J" to slot in between towns starting with "I" and "K" on the train route. Many tiny prairie hamlets and sidings along train lines were named alphabetically in those days using that arbitrary method. Often the names were chosen by railroad personnel. That's how, for instance, Saskatchewan improbably ended up with a place called "Mikado." M, you see. Some railroad guy must have been a Gilbert 'n Sullivan fan.
so you have odd named places in Canada too!I'm sure you have heard of Climax Michigan. There is a community called Hell For Certain in Kentucky next to Hell For Certain Creek.Also, I posted about visiting Flippin Arkansas.
And there you have it. Now we know where to find it :)
Great play on words. :o) Will have to remember the location the next time someone smarts off about Justice.....Have a great weekend!
Does it have a court house ?
Sadly so many people confuse Justice with Revenge:http://www.forgottenoh.com/Revenge/revenge.html
@ SmitoniusAndSonata -- Good ask, LOL! Alas no, it is much, much too small to have a courthouse. Doesn't even have its own RCMP detachment to the best of my knowledge.@ Willym -- Yes, too true, isn't it? Thanks for the great link!
Hey Debra,That's right up there with the sign at Biggar, Saskatchewan. "New York is big but this is Biggar." Have a peaceful, positive Thanksgiving, eh.Gary
Is that Justice for minorities or just for white folks?
Perhaps we should warn the locals that there is a holding pen of politicians down here in the US bound for them
This is so much fun! Like I said Deb, you find the best places! I just read why the town was called that! So interesting, although, I do like your answer better about hopes and dreams!Happy Thanksgiving!!! Hope you and your Rare One are having a great weekend! Big Hugs!
Certainly brings up a lot of thoughts - especially in the US at this time.
We use to have some semblance of that here in the US. the Ol'Buzzard
Who knew!?!?!? I need to take a road trip!
I'd better get the map out in case I need to make a fast trip there!
I wouldn't bet on it, but I would assume there is no towns in the US called Justice.
Thanks for the background information on how Justice got its name. Prosaic, but interesting none the less.
I feel that this place is taking all the justice for itself. It should share some with the rest of us.แคมฟรอก
