    A host on The Social was responding to the Don Cherry thing and saying how she doesn’t worship hockey and that the players are all white boys who aren’t very nice and are bullies. She complained about how much parents spend on hockey and how they should be using that for travelling, etc. People are losing it and calling her racist and to be fired over it.

    You pay for them, usually a quarter or something small, but still it adds up. The money goes to veterans.

    Not to fucking mention, I didn’t wear a poppy this year and nobody said jack shit to me. Half my hockey team parents didn’t wear poppies, and they are the most vocal on my feed, about immigrants doing so. WTF.

    Oh, thank you! I didn't know that. I thought it was like the stupid American flag stuff that people buy from wherever to show their support.

    It's funny b/c after being on this thread today, I went to an event where the Lt Governor was announcing funding for a project my nonprofit is working on, affordable veterans' housing in a local community, and my exec director made the point that on Monday everyone was thanking people for their service but more than thanks, veterans need housing and services. I wanted to yell out something about Don Cherry but I refrained.

    No, it's a fundraiser. Here's info if you want it. :)

    Lol I think that's why they make them so they fall off so easily - then you have to buy another (and another). :lol:

    I watched the Luca Magnotta doc series over the last few days. Two reasons: I love murder docs and everyone on my fb newsfeed was dying over the horrible pronunciation of Etobicoke.

    However what I did NOT know was Magnottas apartment where he likely filmed at least one of the cat videos if not more, is walking distance from my house.

    We just watched that! It was so bizarre.

    We watched it last night. Gave me shower creeps more than if I had watched a horror movie. I was then reminded that this case made me take my true crime hiatus after I listened to it on Sword and Scale a couple years ago.

    I feel like a dumb that I had no idea Don't F**k with Cats was about Luca Magnotta.

    Yep. My mom said basically the same thing. She specifically warned me NOT to watch this. I’m heeding the warning.

    It. Was. A rough watch. I’m a non-Canadian, so I didn’t really know too much about him before diving in. And I had to watch it all at once, because it was disturbingly fascinating.

    I had to block the Netflix account on my Twitter because I kept getting the ad for that movie and I can’t even handle that.

    Yes, I started telling my mom about it because I know she likes true crime, and in the middle of my sentence I was basically like "Nevermind, don't watch it. It's terrible."

    Seeing it reminded me how freaked out I was about the case. Few TC cases creep me out like this, but just hearing his name and Aileen Wuornos's name gives me major creeps.

    Don't know if any of you are watching the Ontario projection presser right now. If you want the slides, I've added them to this post.

    I'm afraid to watch it. :cry:

    You can watch this one.

    But don't watch the Doug Ford presser. I am oscillating between depressed and furious after that one.

    It feels like 16 today in Toronto! I am going to take my blanket and my Netflix outside for the afternoon. I am so very grateful to have a backyard for all of this. If this happened a year ago TG and I would be stuck in 1000 square feet with no outdoor space, everything on one floor and about 100 senior neighbours in the building

    It's 0 here. Plus side is it was a ghost town outside when I took Phoenix for a walk.

    Ford's presser today is much improved over last week. Colour me actually kind of impressed?

    All in all, I’ve been fairly impressed with Ford’s handling of the situation. Mind you, the bar for him is set incredibly low, but overall he’s done okay here.
