Since June 1st is the official kick-off of Pride Month rainbows will be everywhere, so why not on your plate? It's time to join the festivities and give this trend a try. You'll be the star at your next backyard party or potluck because, let's face it, food tastes better when it's pretty and colourful.
Even if the GOP hadn't gerrymandered the House, even if Trump had won the popular vote, even if there weren't all these new voter restriction laws in place, the Senate still gives voters in smaller, whiter states more power than those in big diverse ones.

These abrupt weather changes can cause symptoms of the cold and flu, and we risk not only our own functionality and health, but that of others too.
Much has been discussed concerning the increasing political polarization occurring globally. From the rise of the Occupy
I don't like when tax dollars are wasted -- whether at the provincial level by relocating gas plants, or at City Hall by tearing up LRT contracts willy-nilly, or even by the federal government straight up losing $3.1 billion (whatever happened to that scandal, by the way?).
