    I'm not bothered by people stopping right behind...

    Again driver training taught me to leave enough room to see the tires. For that reason and so if they are stuck, breakdown or whatever there is room to get out from behind them. In the winter I...

    There will be no new oilsands mines (that's why we're talking about transition strategies), but the existing ones will carry on for some time. If demand crashes, production will drop because the...

    ^^^^ I would suspect that bitumen and gas will be the last bits of the petroleum industry left standing. Shale wells have a short lifespan and production slows quickly after active drilling stops,...

    A retiring coal plant would be a good location for nuclear, and there will be several of those in the coming years. Cooling requirements would be greater due to lower thermal efficiency though,...

    There is that I suppose. I will miss driving the last remnant of the old road when it is gone though.

    ^ Have to wonder if this project is worth it. The previous Kickinghorse canyon projects have eliminated most of the traffic delays on that part of the highway. Removing the remaining slow section...

    ^ The USA tried that and failed and eventually allowed states to set speed limits appropriate to road design. Ontario is still trying and failing - nobody drives under 100 km/h on the 401 unless...

    Arrested and charged? Yes. Put in jail after conviction? No. Make them spend a few hundred hours picking up garbage and scrubbing off graffiti instead.

    Except that they went full reverse on that one and now they harass any homeowner who tries to sell a parking spot for an event and tow instead of just ticketing people who park on the street. ...

    The site layout is still missing the nice outdoor stages of years past though, when there were actual elevated stages and even benches to sit on. Gazebo park works as-is, but the others are limited...

    I don't see space heating in that list so I am assuming you are getting natural gas service for a furnace. The obvious answer in that case is to run a few more gas lines rather than spending tens of...

    ^^^ A good part of the city does have boulevards, but they aren't used for snow storage. We need to start doing just that, as well as adding boulevards to areas that don't have them as part of the...

    Agreed. Plus, the ruts wouldn't be nearly so bad if people tried their best not to drive in them instead of the opposite.

    Why do we continue to go around in circles debating whether melting snow with salts or trying to make it less slippery with abrasives is the less-worse option? They both suck. The right way to deal...

    Windrows were narrowing lanes on 111 Av between 124 St and Groat Road today too. I don't think this is unreasonable for a few days after a major snowstorm, but further west on 111 Av was evidence of...

    I didn't see a single windrow this morning. I didn't expect bare roads, but I did expect that the process of moving the snow to the center of the road for eventual collection would have been started.
