O Canada

Generally an unmoderated forum for discussion of pretty much any topic. The focus however, is usually politics.

Fascinating; my first thought upon encountering these boys is that they are novice chain saw jugglers.

Canada statue of John A Macdonald toppled by activists in Montreal

Activists in Montreal have pulled down a statue of Canada's first prime minister Sir John A Macdonald, who was linked to cruel policies that killed many indigenous people in the late 19th Century....

...
Without opining on what tactics Canadian activists choose, that's the coolest toppling I've seen, though the Durham crumple and the statue roll into an English harbor were also excellent. Points to Hurricane Laura's BLM solidarity, too, but we didn't get to watch it happen.

Canadian couple fined for breaking curfew after woman found 'walking' her husband on a dog leash

A couple in Canada have been fined £900 each after they were stopped by police with the woman ‘walking’ her husband on a dog lead.

The unnamed wife tried to argue with police that she was not breaking coronavirus rules, as it is permitted to break curfew in order to walk your dog.

“One of them had the other on a leash, and she said she was taking her dog, pointing to her partner, out on a walk, as allowed under the exceptions provided by Quebec’s premier under its curfew law,” said Isabelle Sehrdon, a spokesperson for the local police department.

The couple are from Sherbrooke, Quebec....
If they don't pay the fine she will be jailed and he will be put in a kennel.
