Fo llow the money - it's more expensive to bury them than to repair them a couple of times a year...

Uhhh... Trudeau is not a city name... it's the name of a previous prime minister... and maybe they changed the International Airport name again. This is Canada, people.. we get winter here.

This is just the beginning, the world storm is coming. Just as it has for millions of years, this planet goes through cycles of weather all the time.

The world will very soon have the choice of act together for every ones mutual benefit or many of us will not survive.

Th ose of you who are reading this and who are sane enough to see the weather escalating globally, you really need to think outside of the box and invest in the right kinds of clothes and technologies!

Before it's too late, learn to respect the power of creation and adapt your behavior to it!

Second time this has happened this year, actually. There was one back in April (!) that knocked out power to most of eastern Ontario for almost a week.
