    ‘Bike culture’ enjoys limited receptivity among Canadians

    It's much easier to be aware of uncoming traffic at intersections on a bicycle. If not making a full stop at that intersection was so dangerous, surely that TV crew would have a lot of footage of dangerous near misses and collisions , right ?

    ‘Bike culture’ enjoys limited receptivity among Canadians

    Those numbers for Canada are depressing but they make me appreciate the fact that I live in a very bike friendly city even more. Good bike infrastructures are crucial to make cities more liveable.

    Well, since Canada is the historical name of New-France and was inhabited by the original Canadiens, it certainly makes sense to root for them ;) We'll let the rest of Canada root for Les feuilles d'érables...

    OCdts in Leadership Positions Discussion

    These "very special individuals" appear in the organization from time to time (I've met less than an handful during my 20+ years).  And these "very special individuals" cause an extraordinary amount of chaos and grief. They get trough because even the greatest weirdos can usually manage to keep...

    OCdt Speaks at Freedom Rally

    It's actually a Guards flash which would be consistent with prior service with the GGHG.  The CIC badge is really outdated and combined with the outdated rank slide, I'm pretty certain, unfortunately,  that he was a CIC Officer at some point but at the very least 5 or 6 years ago.

    OCdt Speaks at Freedom Rally

    The cap badge definitely looks like CIC.  But he's also wearing an old-style OCdt slip-on (thin bar, no star).  I think he might have been an active CIC / COATS officer at some point but I doubt he is one now. ADDED : I think he likes to play dress-up : https://www.instagram.com/p/BqNLoifFAcr/

    First Stripes - BMQ Documentary

    It's actually interesting to note that the choice of what is shown (and what is not shown) were entirely made by the the director who insisted the CAF should have no say on the final cut of the film.
