Racism vs Rodeo: The clowns won!

 Let me first start by apologizing to Canada. The events of yesterday's Alberta Legislature move should be on the front page of every newspaper in Canada. "Alberta's Done it Again!" Yesterday our provincial governing party felt it better to nominate Rodeo as Alberta's sport than to debate whether or not to condone racism. WHAT??!? Did that just happen? Sadly yes it did. I get that rural Albertans participate in rodeo events, and that we don't want to diminish that small town weekend appeal. I get it, I actually agree that Rodeo is part of Alberta's community. I have been to many rodeos, and watched many events. I get it. I don't quite know if it should be Alberta's sport, but hey "everyone's got a cowboy hat right!" However to sideline a motion on racism in favour of this? How did that possibly happen?  Every week we see more and more acts of violence and protests against minorities.

Skunky Smell..

 Am I the only one in Canada who doesn't appreciate the odor of marijuana? I have never been a consumer of the now legalized product so I really cannot weigh in on the benefits real or perceived. I do know that I am tired of having to close my windows at night because there's always a skunky smell permeating from our neighbors next door.  I get that it's legal. I get that it's the cure all for everything. But what about my rights to fresh air? Why do I have to close my windows so that you can be out of your deck all night smoking up? It would be different if it's a once a night thing, but from 5pm till 11pm its all anyone can smell. Yup, first world problem here 😈
