    It’s raining poop in Kelowna!

    Looks like another story was flushed out... Multiple cars hit by falling feces at park, B.C. woman says Abbotsford woman thought at first ‘real big bird’ with bad ‘diarrhea’ was to blame TYLER OLSEN Jun. 4, 2018 12:28 p.m. LOCAL NEWS NEWS An Abbotsford woman says her car was hit by a large amount of feces falling from the sky in mid-May, just a day after a similar incident in Kelowna that has prompted Transport Canada to look into whether aircraft are to blame. Karen Copeland and her daughter were sitting in their vehicle at Mill Lake Park on the evening of May 10, prior to a baseball game, when they heard a “splat, splat, splat, splat.” The pair looked at each other, and thought of the most likely culprits – birds. The scale of the mess, though, was far from ordinary. “We looked at the car next to us, and it was covered, and the [other] car next to us was covered too,” she said. When they stepped out of the car they saw five be-splattered cars. And it was, Copeland said, very clearly poop. “It reeked. It was disgusting,” she said. “We were gagging.” It was so bad, she immediately texted a friend. Even so, Copeland thought a bird was likely still to blame. “I honestly just thought it was a bird with really bad diarrhea,” she said. “I was like, ‘That had to be a real big bird to cover five cars.’” But after hearing about a Kelowna woman who was splattered with feces through the sunroof of her vehicle on May 9, Copeland began to consider whether an airplane was to blame. Since that incident was first publicized, others have come forward to share similar stories. Susan Allan, who was hit in Kelowna, contracted pinkeye after being splattered, believes a plane was to blame and wants the airport to take responsibility for her grief, and to clean the inside of her car. One researcher has suggested the feces could have come from a melting “poopsicle” that had been frozen on a plane overhead. RELATED: Man recounts truck suddenly covered in brown splatters from the sky Copeland, for her part, got her filthy car cleaned up the next morning. She has been told that Mill Lake Park is not beneath a normal flightpath and says is willing to consider other explanations. But with no large buildings nearby, the magnitude of the poop that fell on Mill Lake Park that day, and at least two other incidents occurring that same week elsewhere in the province, the possibility of an aircraft overhead doesn’t seem out of the question. Similar reports across B.C. have led Transport Canada to begin an investigation. Contacted by phone, a Transport Canada spokesperson requested inquiries be emailed because the agency has received such a large amount of requests on the matter. They have not yet responded to an email.

    It looks like my old hangar (#1) on Sea Island, south side...hangar #2 being the old dome shaped one that was taken over by BCIT. Heck, my mother even worked in it for Boeing during the Second Word War.

    Trump 2.0 Continues

    And he's (Trump) playing it well... "As President Trump has teased a summit between him and North Korean leader Kim Jong Un could still take place, the U.S. on Monday halted new sanctions against the rogue nation, according to The Wall Street Journal."
  12. Perhaps the BC Government has a legal point... Section 92A of the Constitution Act 1867 allows for provincial export control but the section contains a huge caveat - there can be no supply nor price discrimination directed against a particular province ("such laws may not authorize or provide for discrimination in prices or in supplies exported to another part of Canada."). Constitutionally Notley conceivably could act but she would have to cut off oil supply to all provinces. I do not see that happening. In 1982 Alberta Premier Peter Lougheed gave up the hammer to make the bastards freeze in the dark by turning off the taps when Trudeau the Elder was forced to recognize provincial control of natural resources as part of the Constitution patriation package. The result? Section 92A of the Constitution Act 1867 that in essence recognizes the exclusive power of provincial legislatures to make laws for “exploration”; “development, conservation and management” of provincial non-renewable resources as well as forestry resources and electrical energy. Provinces can also regulate (NOTE this huge caveat - without price or supply discrimination) the export of these natural resources (subsection 2). It is that caveat that stops Notley dead in her tracks. And if such discriminatory acts are legislated by Alberta the Feds can simply prohibit such action by passing legislation (subsection 3).>>>>>Non-Renewable Natural Resources, Forestry Resources and Electrical EnergyLaws respecting non-renewable natural resources, forestry resources and electrical energy92A. (1) In each province, the legislature may exclusively make laws in relation to(a) exploration for non-renewable natural resources in the province;(b) development, conservation and management of non-renewable natural resources and forestry resources in the province, including laws in relation to the rate of primary production therefrom; and(c) development, conservation and management of sites and facilities in the province for the generation and production of electrical energy.Export from provinces of resources(2) In each province, the legislature may make laws in relation to the export from the province to another part of Canada of the primary production from non-renewable natural resources and forestry resources in the province and the production from facilities in the province for the generation of electrical energy, but such laws may not authorize or provide for discrimination in prices or in supplies exported to another part of Canada.Authority of Parliament(3) Nothing in subsection (2) derogates from the authority of Parliament to enact laws in relation to the matters referred to in that subsection and, where such a law of Parliament and a law of a province conflict, the law of Parliament prevails to the extent of the conflict.<<<<<<

    Justin On the Road Again Putting his best foot forward: Justin Trudeau dons Darth Vader socks during trip to meet Star Wars fan Indian Prime Minister Modi after he was snubbed by the leader His trip to India may have began without a bump but Canadian leader Justin Trudeau has another method of diplomacy up his sleeve... or pants leg. Trudeau was snubbed by Indian Prime Minister Narendra Modi who failed to meet them at the airport and instead sent a junior agriculture minister. It was far cry from when former US President Barack Obama and the leaders of Israel and the UAE made the trip, with Modi patiently waiting for them on the tarmac. But it appears Trudeau has decided to launch a charm offensive to win over Modi, by putting his best foot forward in a set of Darth Vader socks.
