Canadian City Uses Drone To Chase Off Geese

Gravitron 5000 Re:Where do they go? (196 comments)

They go outside the city. Most of Canada is essentially uninhabited by people, so there is plenty of space that they can go where they will not be a nuisance. They don't even have to go far in this case, as Ottawa is surrounded by forest and farm land. You can drive half an hour from the city center in any direction and be in the middle of nowhere.

Supreme Court of Canada Rules That Text Messages Are Private

bacon-flavoured bacon bits, wrapped in bacon -- if that's a thing

Canada is a wonderful place, but one thing that Canadians do not know about is bacon. Hint: it's not ham. OTOH the British have great bacon (more meat than the American stuff). Go figure.

Sorry, but as a Canadian, if I ordered bacon and got ham, I would be quite perturbed, flabbergasted even. What you call Canadian Bacon, is known as back bacon up here. What we call bacon is the same as what you 'Merican's call bacon. Also, I was in a subway chain in the the US and ordered a BLT. They were using deep fried bacon. What an abomination. Fried all the flavour out of that poor excuse for bacon. What sort of deviant deep fries bacon, Eh?

Canadian ISP Fights Back Against Copyright Trolls

Gravitron 5000 Re:Trolls... (66 comments)

The business model is broken, and a lot of very intelligent people have already made that observation. The people defending the business model are those who lack both intelligence and imagination.

Or have a vested interest in perpetuating and expanding the business model as it now stands.
