Brett Wilson fights against Christmas decorations before Remembrance Day

Calgary financier Brett Wilson is calling on businesses to hold off putting up Christmas decorations until after Remembrance Day on Nov.11.

He says early Christmas displays and sales show a lack of respect for war veterans.

"I was upset because they were putting it up," said William Cox, the president of the North Calgary Legion.

"I'm not going to be able to change that.... so we have to live with it and stay strong."

Wilson says the 10 days between Halloween and Remembrance Day should be free of Christmas sales and decorations.

Wilson is using social media to make his point, and some stores have replied to his online campaign.

Fluevog Shoes in Calgary has said it will not put up Christmas decorations until after Nov. 11.

"I think that it shows a lot of respect as a Canadian company for an important Canadian holiday like Remembrance Day to hold off the extra day," said store manager Tanya McIntosh.

Honestly, not a fuck given...

Remembrance day is to celebrate those who fought for our ways of life and by altering such is an insult to those who fought so strongly to preserve it.

They went to war so we can have our christmas decorations, not the other way around.

Unless there is shit to peddle for Resemblance Day, then there is no point in preventing businesses from setting up for their biggest chunk of income for the year. Businesses aren't there to respect special holidays. They are there to capitalize on them.

sorry, so if a meter is valid from 9am-10pm, can I park for free from 10pm-9am or is there a time limit? specifically along Alberni street.

Thanks

Should be fine, unless the sign states a 2 hour limit.

Yeah, it should go by the normal street parking rules:

Parking when there is no signage | City of Vancouver

Between 8:00am and 6:00pm, you can only park for three hours, but between 10pm and 9am you're good to go.

So, heading north on Commerical Drive this afternoon, I see this father on a bike with one of those things that hold small children in tow. Dude is like booking it. I wait till left lane is clear and pass him. I'm about a block away when a pedestrian is about to cross the road. I slow down and come to a stop. This idiot doesn't see the pedestrian and slams on the brakes. He can't stop. His bike is like wobbling. I'm seeing this from my rear view mirror. Pedestrian runs out of the way. Fuark, the father is an idiot.

I don't get why people use this type of setup to bring a child with them on a bike. At the next stop light, the father is now behind a motorcycle that is spewing really bad exhaust. I can smell it in my cabin. The child is like right there breathing that crap - tailpipe is basicalliy shooting the shit into kid's face. Father has no fucking clue that kid is being poisoned. Then I see another father pushing a buggy and crossing Commercial Drive with a kid standing up, not strapped in, and facing away. WTF is wrong with people nowadays? Do they not give two shits about their kids?

If you don't have comprehensive insurance that covers windshields, what's the best/cheapest way to get a new windshield?

The vehicle is a 1996 ford ranger

Most important thing to know is Alberta has photo radar so watch yourself, especially if you see any kind of vehicle pulled over.

I would haunt anyone that touched my car too.





Actor James Dean loved his 1955 Porsche Spyder. He had it extensively
customized and affectionately called it his "Little Bastard." Apparently, the
car was so transparently evil that Sir Alec Guinness, when meeting Dean for
lunch, claimed ""If you get in that car, you will be found dead in it by this
time next week." And Dean was. But the curse didn't stop there; when
mechanics tried to repair the wrecked car, it fell on one of them, crushing
both his legs. The car's new owner sold the engine and drivetrain to two
racers; one lost control, hit a tree and died instantly, the other was injured
when his car locked up and rolled over. Two thieves who tried to take pieces
of the car were both injured. The car was then donated to a safety exhibit of
the California Highway Patrol; the first exhibit caught fire, and the car fell on
a student at the second, breaking his hip. It even managed to crush and kill
a truck driver who was transporting it. The car has since disappeared, which
is probably for the best.
