I was very disturbed to hear that a report by NBC News named cigarette butts as the single greatest source of ocean pollution—surpassing plastic straws. PLEASE, SMOKERS, DISPOSE OF THESE DISGUSTING THINGS PROPERLY!!!!!

Barbecue bigot

Posted By on Fri, Jul 5, 2019 at 10:00 AM

To the fat-ass  who went out of his way to interrupt my wife and her friends while they were conversing amongst themselves in their native language to tell them that they should speak in English, here’s what you should do: Mind your own fucking business.  I bet you felt like a real big shot harassing three Filipino ladies who were just trying to enjoy an outdoor event. Are you such a fragile failure of a human being that the thought of someone from a different cultural background demands that you harass them for it?

My wife was nicer than I would have been and somehow humoured your bullshit, even though she knew what you were saying was wrong. 

Oh, your grandfather was responsible for immigrants being here (whatever THAT means)? So fucking what? What right would that give YOU to tell anyone what they can and can’t say to each other, or in what language they do it?  In what language do you need to be told that we have freedom of expression in this country before that sinks in, moron?  Was your grandfather the one of driving people from their homes in the first place?  Is that what you meant? Well, your sad existence certainly attests to that possibility. 

My wife and her friends put it behind them and I’ve tried to do the same, but days later this still gnaws at me.  I want to believe that we are better than this and that cowards like you are a shrinking minority.  I want to be able to ignore this as the ranting of some asshole, but I can’t because saying nothing just emboldens dipshits like you.  Silence is complicity.  I was born and raised here and I will not be complicit in letting a limp-dick piece of shit like you be the face of my home.

Soundscape pollution

Finally folks are back on the Common in force, enacting their right to chill and not be messed with. It's a special preserve that no rich developer can buy, no bank can rename in their glory and no advertising will be seen. It's great and for the most part people do a pretty good job sharing it respectfully.

What would be disrespectful? Any of the aforementioned endeavours to make capital gain, for sure. Blasting your own music without asking everybody in the city first whether they want to hear it? Definitely. Why then do radio stations get the privilege above all other businesses to advertise themselves with speakers on top of trucks in the guise of a tasteless block party with no guests? Trucks on the Common?! Top 40? It's not fair to subject others to what you think they want to hear.

The Oval should respect this as well, but instead as people lay reading books and children try roller skating, churlish radio hosts talk about the gnarliest place to get laid in the world and emit shrill compressed cackles over each other. The best thing about the radio is that you don't have to listen to it if you don't want to. The best thing about the Commons is that no one is allowed to blatantly advertise in your face. Radio station promoters go home!

Smoking ban

Posted By on Tue, Sep 25, 2018 at 11:55 AM

I stopped smoking in 2009.
I don't particularly enjoy the smell of cigarettes.
I am completely ashamed and embarrassed of the city's planned smoking ban.

Campsite Rule

Posted By on Tue, Jul 10, 2018 at 1:23 PM

WHY is every beach in this city a goddamn bio-hazard? Even the relatively remote lake beaches that you have to hike in to are littered with cigarette butts. Do you people think that shit's not garbage? Do you think the world is your ashtray? Do you think the "government" has an obligation to provide you with conveniently located ashtrays, and also to pay someone to come out and clean them on the regular? FUCK YOU. Take your effing garbage out with you and dispose of it appropriately. By all means, enjoy your cigarette. But when you have sucked all the pleasure out of it, put the butt in your pocket and take it with you. What's that? It's dirty? Are you shitting me? You won't put it in your pocket but you'll put it in your MOUTH? Fuck you again. It's so much a part of your life that you have no concept of how dirty, nasty, and gross it is. You don't want to walk back to your car with a few butts in your pocket, but you think I should be fine with walking through them and sitting on them and putting my belongings down on them. Fuck you yet another time. Take your butts with you, you dirty motherfuckers.

Say, Did You Ever Notice...

...that Cool Nick guy, from the anti-smoking P.S.A.? He really was kind of cool. Way cooler than the Glee Club bullies who were tobacco shaming him, at any rate. Y'know what else makes you "Smell-O"?

Argyle Street was a beauty

Posted By on Tue, Nov 14, 2017 at 9:40 AM

It didn't take very long for the beautification of the new Argyle Street to diminish with all those gross cigarette butts everywhere. Thanks smokers for being obnoxious, uncaring people and ruining the good construction downtown.

PS: I think you should be fined. —Finally Got To See the Street and then This Garbage

There's something about Mary Jane

Posted By on Fri, Jun 30, 2017 at 10:02 AM

I have some questions about marijuana and its use. Firstly, will people be allowed to smoke it in public? You can't drink in public, so I don't think be should be allowed to smoke a joint in public places. Next, I notice folks lighting up in their cars...WTF. You can't open a beer in your vehicle whilst driving, so the same should go for pot. I notice many pot smokers have lovely coughs...Marijuana is better than ciggies for your health....Oh, and the shit stinks like...well shit, or skunk piss at best. In short marijuana smokers may just be more obnoxious, assholish, and stinky than regular smokers. —Monty

Marihuana: The evil drug

Posted By on Fri, May 12, 2017 at 3:38 PM

I've never been stoned. I don't smoke. I used to drink, but the cost to feel good, was taken away by paying 25 bucks for a bottle of booze that has $15 in taxes attached to it!

So, back to the marihuana. It's illegal right now. The debate is endless about the stuff. Is it save? What will it do to us? What about or children?? Health experts aren't sure of the ill effects of its use. Be careful who gets their hands on it.

Huh? Really? Why all the big concern about our health with this marihuana plant? THINK ABOUT THIS: The government has all these regulations and CONCERNS about our health for everything. Or do they? I can go to the liquor store and buy enough booze to kill me in two hours and nobody at the liquor store will stop me from my purchase. I can go to the car dealer and buy a vehicle that will do 300 KM/HR when, clearly, there are NO highways in Canada with that speed limit. I could kill me and a half dozen others at the same time! Ridiculous! I can buy tons of cigarettes and smoke em' til I'm dead. I can go to the casino and gamble away every cent I have (or borrow) and ruin my life and become dependant on the government. All THOSE "fun" things are "regulated" by the government. And then they have the nerve to say they're concerned about our health and marihuana?? Get real. Their concerns are about the revenue and that's understandable; they have roads to pave, hospitals to keep running, schools that are filled to capacity AND lets not forget the money they love to lend to their friends that own big corporations. —Avenger Arora

That's some stanky dank

Posted on Wed, Dec 7, 2016 at 4:00 AM

Dear neighbours,
I honestly don't care that you smoke marijuana in your apartment. I do too on occasion. That's not the issue. What's got me bitching is that the current batch that you've got smells like you cut it with dog shit and rolled it in decaying salmon skin. Holy mother of god, it's rank. Time to switch suppliers. Please. Weed should not smell like that! —Eyes watering and breathing through my mouth

No means no

Posted on Fri, Sep 2, 2016 at 4:00 AM

Look, I've bummed my share of smokes. I used to give out one or two. But despite the public all thinking I'm a fat public servant, I can't afford it anymore. I don't mind someone asking, but if I say no, don't ask for the butt. It's disgusting. I'm on a smoke break and won't get another for a few hours, so I'm smoking it. And quite frankly I don't want to hang out with you on one of my only two 15 minute breaks while you wait for it. And what's with the rude responses when I say no? One person actually responded "I hope you choke on that butt." You know what? If someone's gonna choke on it, it's me, because I bought it. The tax hike last year alone means I balanced your fucking provincial budget for you. That's enough! —Smokers balanced the budget, not Stephen McNeil
