You might only see this in Canada: Blue Jays fans danced around the intersection of Yonge Street and Dundas Street in Toronto right up until the light turned green. Then they calmly walked aside to let the cars through.
"Day one. Today was my first full day at the ranch. I fed the cats and horses. So much I can do here I have to remind myself to just relax and take my time. I don't feel alone here. I guess with 2 cats and 3 horses it's kinda hard to be alone. Last night I had a fire in the house. I was so . I slept like a little baby. I saw a picture in the basement on the wall of a man holding and weighing fish on a boat. Looking at him, I realized we look a lot alike but I think I'm more handsome. :)"
Another local Conservative candidate has resigned today after he read the Conservative Party platform out loud offending many who heard it.
Gordon McPherson, Conservative candidate for the Norfolk riding immediately stepped down when he was caught publicly quoting official Conservative policies and platform proposals about Syrian refugees and First Nations.
"I deeply regret what I stated directly from our plan to govern," an apologetic McPherson said on a facebook post.
In response to several Conservative candidates and members who have already resigned in controversy, the party's director of marketing, Dennis Matthews, has reminded members to only imply what they actually mean.
"Instead of saying 'refugees aren't welcome in Canada', simply state that 'there are terrorists among refugees and they must be screened out,'" Matthews explained in an email to supporters. "That way everyone agrees with you and you don't have to refer to what the actual platform says."
The Conservative Party has kicked out an Ontario-based riding association director after she made comments on social media insulting First Nations, according to an APTN report. Susan Macdonell was on the board of directors for the Bay of Quinte Conservative riding association, and had done canvassing for Tory candidate Jodie Jenkins before she was asked to step down by the party.
Macdonell disparaged Canada's Indigenous population as "Indians" with "no self-respect," and said "the only way to stop this madness is to stop throwing money at them." She also made comments about Mrs. Universe beauty pageant winner Ashley Callingbull-Burnham — an Enoch Cree woman who has repeatedly criticized Prime Minister Harper and called for his defeat at the polls — saying she was a "monster" and a "smug, entitled liberal pet."
Her page also contains links and comments criticizing the Black Lives Matter movement and Canadians urging for the federal government to help Syrian refugees.
When reached by APTN about her comments regarding First Nations, she asked, "what about them?" and refused to answer questions.
The Conservative party confirmed today that Macdonell was no longer with the riding association.
