The Poet's Pathway project celebrates some of the "Confederation Poets" of #Canada and stretches around #Ottawa, with markers like this one along its length. I like the idea and some of the poems reproduced are Canadian classics, but this one near where I live, by Susan Frances Harris is a stinker. Could we have a better poem?

One of my favorite bands, with new stuff:

Mechanics Of Dominion by Esmerine

Even within the experimental music scene of Montreal, Esmerine tends to stand out. Formed by former Godspeed You! Black Emperor drummer/ percussionist, Bruce Cawdon, and past Thee Silver Mt. Zion cellist Rebecca Foon, the band displays an affection towards the post-rock base and its minimalistic quality found in the other groups of the scene but also explores further intricate concepts. Forming its sound around a neo-classical and chamber music perspective and with the inclusion of Turkish and near Eastern folk motifs has provided Esmerine with a very distinct sound,...

Millennials Moving To Rural Newfoundland?

This is an interesting social trend: Millennials not moving to Toronto, but to rural Newfoundland instead. That is one way around high housing costs!

Young, educated business people swim against N.L. tide

Millennials are gravitating to rural Newfoundland to start businesses and carve out a life, despite the trend towards people leaving in recent decades.

Godspeed You! Black Emporer - Anthem For No State pt.3

....kanada, emptied of its minerals and dirty oil. emptied of its trees and water. a crippled thing, drowning in a puddle, covered in ants. the ocean doesn’t give a shit because it knows it’s dying too.

finally and in conclusion;
the “luciferian towers” L.P. was informed by the following grand demands:
+ an end to foreign invasions
+ an end to borders
+ the total dismantling of the prison-industrial complex
+ healthcare, housing, food and water acknowledged as an inalienable human right
+ the expert fuckers who broke this world never get to speak again

much love to all the other lost and wondering ones,
xoxoxox god’s pee

Anthem For No State, Pt. III, by Godspeed You! Black Emperor

Three families who helped get Edward Snowden out of the US are now seeking asylum in Canada

Three families who helped shelter former U.S. National Security Agency contractor Edward Snowden in Hong Kong in 2013 after his mass leak of information about surveillance programmes have asked Canada for asylum, their lawyer said on Friday. The families - three Sri Lankan adults, a Filipina, and three stateless children - have had long-pending asylum claims in Hong Kong that they fear may soon be rejected, lawyer Marc-Andre Seguin said in a phone interview from Hong Kong.

Kate and Anna McGarrigle

This short documentary profiles Quebec-born singing sisters Kate and Anna McGarrigle. The sisters enjoy international acclaim—although outside of the mainstream—for their inimitable style, their talent as songwriters, and especially their unassuming, informal personalities. With camera and sketchbook in hand, artist and filmmaker Caroline Leaf captures the sisters’ endearing qualities. The result is an easygoing, sometimes whimsical portrait of the famous sisters on and off stage. Highlights include excerpts from the sisters’ Carnegie Hall performance and a look at their songwriting and recording processes.

How to monitor urine in pools, by testing sweetnezz

The researchers developed a rapid, high-throughput analytical technique to test more than 250 water samples from 31 actively used pools and hot tubs in two Canadian cities, and more than 90 samples of clean tap water used to initially fill the basins. The concentration of ACE in the pools and hot tubs ranged from 30 to 7,110 nanograms per liter of water -- up to 570 times more than the levels found in the tap water samples. Based on the concentrations of the sweetener, the researchers estimated that swimmers released more than 7 gallons of urine -- enough to fill a medium-size trash bin -- in a 110,000-gallon pool in one instance, and nearly 20 gallons in a 220,000-gallon pool (one-third the size of an Olympic-size pool) in another instance.

Pour être plus précis j'ai oublié de mentionner un règlement qui a été pris en urgence par le maire de Montréal Gérald Tremblay pour rendre illégale toute manifestation spontannée qui non seulement n'a pas communiqué son iténaire de manifestation mais surtout reçu l'acceptation de la part du SPVM.

Ce règlement P6 a été cassé par la cours supérieure du Canada en juin 2016!

Ce qui signifie qu'un maire corrompu comme monsieur Gérald Tremblay peut établir des règlements liberticides pour contrôler et empêcher des manifestations pendant 4 années.

Pendant ces quatres années le SPVM a pu étouffer, arrêter et mettre des amendes lourdes aux manifestants.

Deux policiers s’en prennent à un sexagénaire: «Hey Chinois!»

L’incident s’est produit un matin enneigé. M. Nguyen sort comme d’habitude pour faire son jogging et son tai-chi, mais il préfère courir dans la rue que sur le trottoir trop glacé.

C’est alors qu’il croise les agents Livio Pasin et Justin Desroches, du Service de police de la Ville de #Montréal ( #SPVM), dont un qui lui dit de remonter sur le trottoir. Il obtempère puis entend un des agents l’appeler «Hey, Chinois!».

L’homme passe un week-end en prison pour avoir refusé de s'identifier

La même journée où il a donné raison à Quoc Nimh Nguyen, le juge Randall Richmond a aussi acquitté un jeune homme noir de voies de fait contre un policier de Montréal en raison de «profilage racial».

Décidément ils n'en manquent pas une ces racailles !

How Milo Yiannopoulos Was Brought Down by a 16-Year-Old Canadian Girl

The Breitbart editor had a six-figure book deal and the adoration of the right. It was all undone with a single tweet.
Despite having only a handful of followers, Julia's tweet quickly caught the attention of the conservative blog, the Reagan Battalion. By the end of the week, the podcast clip had cost Yiannopoulos his book deal, his gig at Breitbart and his standing with the far right, at least for the time being.

Bison return to Canadian National Park

Bild/Foto

A herd of 16 plains bison were reintroduced to Canada’s oldest National Park last week.The five-year process is meant to “return a native species to Banff National Park and create new opportunities to reconnect Canadians and visitors with this iconic animal,” according to Parks Canada.

It’s been more than 130 years since a bison was spotted in Banff — well before the park was officially established in 1885. By bringing back the “grazers,” park officials hope they will be able to bring a better balance to the park’s ecosystem.

For 18 months, the small herd of bison will be kept in a pasture within the 740-square-mile “reintroduction zone” on the eastern slopes of Banff National Park. After that time, park rangers will open pasture gates and the bison will be permitte... mehr anzeigen

Torture doesn't work

It's a depressing fact, but many if not most people still believe that #torture actually works; they believe that torture is an effective way of extracting information from an uncooperative subject. The #science has been in on the subject since as far back as it's been called science, but the belief persists. Most people will agree that it is unethical, though many will still allow for it in "extreme situations", but even those that say it shouldn't be done still harbour the belief that it works.

But torture doesn't work. The science is crystal clear on the matter. In fact, torture is not only unlikely to get you any good information, it actually damages the subject so much that it harms your chances of getting information from them in the future - even when you start using actually effective interrogation tactics (and they do exist). So even aside from the #ethics (which, really, shouldn't be ignored), torture is a bad idea.

The species has been named Websteroprion armstrongi. This honours Armstrong, who collected the material, and bass player extraordinaire, Alex Webster of Death Metal band Cannibal Corpse, since he can be regarded as a 'giant' when it comes to handling his instrument.
