In the end, all of the charges against Marc and Jodie Emery will be dismissed. So why bother arresting them? Every second of time and every cent spent to arrest the pot power couple will lead to absolutely nothing productive, and nothing which benefits Canadians.

If it had been your friend or family member demonstrating the same behaviour your first reaction would be to get them help, but our first reaction towards Ford was to want him to lose his job, blackball him from society, and then we laughed some more.

The pending 3rd bout between Miesha Tate and Ronda Rousey brings up some interesting points of discussion as it concerns how title shots are awarded in the UFC. The UFC will look to put on the best fight possible for them, meaning they will choose the fight that will garner the most fan interest/PPV buys, but the most marketable fight isn't necessarily the one that is the most appropriate from a pure sporting perspective.

Dear SeaWorld: Boy, times have been tough for you lately huh? Profits are down 84 per cent, the public is very upset with you, and Steve-O from Jackass keeps climbing things to protest how you treat animals.

A study from the University of Toronto recommends that a change in tactics is long overdue for Canada's culture of activism, one that does not include civil disobedience, shouting, or getting angry at all.

Public hearings are rarely closed to the public. But that's exactly what happened at the National Energy Board (NEB) hearings in London, Ontario to review Enbridge's Line 9 proposal -- the first part of Enbridge's plan to build a route to move tar sands oil through Ontario and Quebec. In short, they kicked us out.

The likelihood of a spill along the route is high enough that it can be considered inevitable. A spill along any of the many rivers and streams the pipeline crosses, or along the coast, would contaminate fish and aquatic life. The contamination would then work its way up the food chain affecting the whole ecosystem.

Talking to your relatives or friends about climate change can be an uncomfortable situation. Everybody has the right to prioritize issues in their own lives, and nobody should feel talked down to by someone who is concerned about the climate apathy many Canadians feel.
