I found an injured green parakeet (I think) around 14th Ave. and Granville St., right outside Kyo. Its leg was crooked and its wing seemed injured. It was just crawling around on the road.

I brought it to the 24/7 pet emergency on 4th Ave. and Fir St. They're looking after it now. The bird seemed very well tamed and the vet said it's a domestic pet for sure. If you know anyone missing a pet bird, let them know where it's at.

"The industry is worried about a labour shortage as the federal government shuts off the tap on temporary foreign workers.

Canada is no longer issuing visas to foreigners working at strip clubs.

Tim Lambrinos, with Canada's Adult Entertainment Association says to offset that loss, they are already working on a pamphlet which will help them recruit at high school job fairs."

Didn't know we issued visas for working at strip clubs

Two novice 17-year-old drivers who almost hit a cyclist while drag racing on a winding road in Whistler have been charged, fined and had their vehicles impounded. This less than a day after four other young drivers were caught excessively speeding in Vancouver.

Police say it’s part of a disturbing trend that has seen an increase in complaints about speeders on Greater Vancouver highways. “This is the second incident of novice drivers involved in street racing in the Lower Mainland district in less than 24 hours” says RCMP spokesman Sgt. Peter Thiessen. “This incident could have easily resulted in serious injury or death”

Police are receiving a hike in the number of complaints about drivers witnessing cars drag racing on Hwy. 1, Hwy. 91 and Hwy. 99 from the U.S. border to Whistler, he said. In some cases, friends of racers use their vehicles to block other traffic from the road while the race is on.

“Complaints about vehicles racing on the highway appear to be on the increase over the past six months,” said Thiessen. “These drivers are putting themselves and others at risk.”

The racers face not only charges and fines between $200 and $500 but the possible forfeiture of their vehicles.

In the Whistler case, RCMP were called to an accident after two vehicles racing on Blackcomb Way were unable to stop at the stop sign at Nancy Greene Drive and swerved to avoid hitting a cyclist in the marked crosswalk.

A 2009 Mazda stopped in time but a 1995 Ford Explorer struck a boulder and both drivers tried to flee but were stopped by witnesses.

Police said the coworkers had left work together and one of them pulled across a double solid line to race the other.

Police impounded both vehicles for seven days and charged the drivers — both 17 years old and class 7 new drivers required to drive displaying a “N” symbol.

The driver of the Mazda, who lives in Whistler and had been convicted in May for speeding, was charged with driving without consideration of others on the road and fined $196.

The driver of the Ford, a 17-year-old Vancouverite living in Whistler, was charged with driving without due care and attention and fined $368. The Ford was registered in his mother’s name.

In the Vancouver incident, four drivers between 21 and 23 years old — three of whom were required to display the “N” as a condition of their licences — were ticketed $483 each and had their vehicles impounded for seven days.

The RCMP has forwarded a report to the provincial civil forfeiture office to have all vehicles, which were worth between $30,000 and $60,000 and included a Porsche, permanently seized by the province.

Rob Kroeker of the forfeiture office said vehicles can be seized if they are used to commit an offence and used unlawfully.

He said the office recently settled out of court on the forfeiture of a high-priced vehicle seized after its owner was caught speeding on Hwy. 99 last summer. He was one of 13 driving vehicles including Ferraris, Maseratis and an Aston Martin worth a total of $2 million in total. Proceedings are continuing against two others.

A man allegedly responsible for a YouTube video showing a motorcyclist travelling at up to 299 km/h on Vancouver Island is in custody in Kelowna, according to Global News.

Randy George Scott, 25, turned himself in to the Kelowna RCMP on an outstanding warrant and has been charged with dangerous operation of a motor vehicle.

Bizarre New Renault Ad Stars Two Girls And One Fishbowl?!

Quote:
That said, Renault has released the second of its so-called "Challenge Us If You Can" videos, this time filmed at the iconic Nürburgring Nordschleife, featuring two beautiful women (one of whom is talented racer and French television presenter Margot Laffite, the other of whom is known only as Jenny, The Glam Passenger), one Red Bull Racing RB7 Renault Twingo R.S. and one rather hapless goldfish named Red Bubulle in a big glass fishbowl.

See where this is going?

Yep, the three take a lap of the track in the Twingo, the fish gets sloshed something fierce and the displaced water ends up making for an impromptu wet t-shirt moment. If that sounds to you like two minutes of your life worth spending, the video can be found below. We've also included the first Challenge video in case you prefer bowling to angling.

Yes, Holy Crap. They are pretty good but expensive. The Chia seeds may take getting used to if you're not familiar with the texture (it turns into a gelly/tapioca like texture when soaked).
