Let us hope for a Donald Trump disaster

Let us pray that President Donald Trump fails. And that he fails spectacularly.

That may sound spiteful and ill-mannered: the final, grasping howl of the embittered and vanquished elite. Surely, common courtesy dictates that even Trump's critics should wish him well — if not for his benefit, then for the benefit of regular workaday Americans. Doesn't cheering his failure mean hoping for economic pain and international disorder? And if the U.S. stumbles, doesn't Canada slip also?

The answer to all of that is "yes." In typical times and under typical circumstances, we should cheer the incoming president, even if we oppose his or her policies. In 2001, for example, George W. Bush was greeted politely upon his swearing-in, despite lingering controversy over the election result.

Electric cars in Canada

Can we provide enough power to charge them all? The answer is "maybe" depending on where you are. #cars #car #automobile #carculture #electriccar #climatechange #peakoil #oil #gasoline

If provinces hit their targets, there will be more than 500,000 electric passenger cars on Canadian roads by 2020. But can the electricity system take the strain?

Well some progress!

"The statement by Earls on Wednesday also follows a policy position paper released the same day — on International Women's Day — by the Ontario Human Rights Commission.

"The commission says that such sexualized dress codes discriminate against women and transgender people. "Employers must make sure their dress codes don't reinforce sexist stereotypes," chief commissioner Renu Mandhane said. "They send the message that an employee's worth is tied to how they look. That's not right, and it could violate the Ontario Human Rights Code."

"The executive director of the Human Rights Legal Support Centre agrees, saying such policies may violate Canadian law in some cases.

"Excellent customer service doesn't have a cup size," Kathy Laird said. "I hope women will call us for legal help if cleavage is deemed an essential skill in their workplace."

Restaurant dress codes

Very interesting issue here, especially given that Hooters was once in Ottawa and went out of business. But the "sexy outfits" for 17 year old servers continues.

These cases are starting to end up in human rights tribunals, but I think customers need to speak out as well.
