Looks like an exciting place!

https://www.google.ca/maps/uv?hl=en&...8X3pUl_jN-bRxg

Why look there's a Billiard hall and a brasserie.

And look at this new building for sale by Mimi:

Edit: Any streetview link in that section of Gabe seems to only take you to that same view of the park. Weird. It’s so shitty streetview doesn't even want to show it.

How often do you see Trudeau showing off his socks in pictures? Seems to have died off but they were big topic for the first several months after he became prime minister. Was the crazy press who couldn’t get enough of them.

The amount skyler talks about selfie socks you’d think he has a fetish for them or something.

Ugh. I have a pretty severe addiction for novelty socks however, I'm not a devoted selfie type.

As long as my socks match and aren’t too hot I’m ok. My winter socks are just longer summer socks so they cover my ankles.

My father in law wears socks in sandals all the time. Worst of all they are usually long black socks.

It seems to have started appearing on fashion catwalks though so maybe he's onto something ...

That's haute couture on the runway. Let it stay there.

I don't know. I imagine black is still better than white knee socks.

great pun. I can't help myself:

Does Rona have a layaway plan or do they only accept equalization payments?



just jumping the gun on the usual sequence of affairs:
1) Quebec in the news about something (good or bad)
2) Someone takes issue
3) Equalization payments gets brought up

I still say it's a Canadian company regardless if the ownership isn't.

This proposal belongs in the ugly thread. It doesn't make any sense.

pretty absurd exception tough if you ask me.. especially considering all the other things that require ID.. or does that written oath work at the liquor store too?

Could that monopoly position be abused?
Why did Eric Schmidt step down recently?
And what was he doing here?
