Even though I vote Conservative here in Canada I usually side with the Democrats in the States because the Republicans are so damned crazy down there! (Tea Party, white trash, the 1%, religious nuts, etc.)
The land of the free and home of the brave is doing things in a typical American style, they're putting Bernie Sanders on the bottom of beer cans!
Boy have we got an "Asshole of the day" for ya today kids: THE ENTIRE CITY OF CORNWALL!
Ten-year-old Kristopher Cadieux and his eight-year-old brother, Clayton, knew they'd have to get their hands dirty if they wanted to make some money this summer.
But the boys didn't realize that their successful worm-selling business could land them in trouble with the city of Cornwall, Ont.
The brothers launched their worm business at the beginning of summer. Through the first half of the season, they dug up and sold more than 1,200 of the critters, earning $250 in sales.
But the business, which the boys ran from their front porch, came to a halt when they arrived home one day to a notice from the city, saying the sales violated local bylaws.
The boys learned the art of worm-picking from their father, Robert Cadieux, who taught his sons how to gather the critters from the ground without damaging them.
"I showed them how to pick worms like I used to do when I was a kid. I taught them how not to break the worms," he told CTV Ottawa.
After collecting the worms, the brothers packaged them by the dozen and set them out in a cooler on the porch, along with a note reading:
"To our customers, Please help yourself to worms. They are $2.50/dozen. Please leave money in cooler."
According to Ken Bedford, a supervisor at the city's planning division, the sign was part of the problem.
"Two issues right now are the signage – there were a couple of signs outside—and the activity was actually taking place outside on the lawn," Bedford said. "They need to bring (the sales) back into the house, in a limited area of the house, as well as curb the signage."
"(I'm) pretty sad because we were making a lot of money and I liked getting the money and I liked meeting new people and we talked to all our customers when they came," Kristopher said.
The Cadieux family says a bylaw officer told them that this isn't the first time the city has shuttered a child's sidewalk business. According to the family, the officer said two girls also had to shut down their lemonade stand recently.
At times we think that all Muslims want to take us back to the "Dark Ages" because they don't like the way things are going now ....!
This just proves that it takes all types to make the world go round!
KITCHENER, Ont. -- Three Ontario sisters, who say they were cycling topless when a police officer told them to cover up are organizing a Bare With Us rally to help raise awareness about women's rights.
Alysha Brilla, (Alysha Mohamed) a Juno-nominated musician and women's rights advocate, says the incident happened last Friday when she and her two sisters were riding their bicycles late in the evening down a quiet street in Kitchener Ont.
That's when she says a police officer in an SUV rolled down his window and told them they needed to put shirts on because it was the law.
But Brilla says that when she started filming the interaction on her cellphone, the officer said he had only wanted to check if the women had proper bells and lights on their bicycles.
The Waterloo Regional Police did not respond to a request for comment.
A similar incident in June garnered headlines after eight-year-old Marlee McLean was told by city staff in Guelph, Ont. to cover up while she was in a wading pool wearing only a swim bottom.
The Kitchener sisters say they hope the Bare With Us rally, scheduled for Saturday at noon in the Waterloo Town Square, will help educate the public on women's rights to be topless, but also broader issues such as women's pay inequity and safety.
