TIL that in Canadian "installments" (like payments towards an invoice), are spelled:

Journalist: The last time I spoke with Brian Mulroney, I asked him about his legacy. He told me that was for historians to judge now. So how would you, a political scientist, judge his legacy?

I'm not an historian of Canadian federal politics in the 1980s and 1990s, but I know several other historians who are. They're not hard to find. Do you f'in homework CBC. @histodons

It’s almost like charging more for an ever worsening product is bad for sales. No one could have expected this!

@kdorse Public transit is not a for-profit business, it's an essential service.

The Remic Rapids lookout beside the Ottawa river is almost accessible for wheelchairs and walkers, except for one small step between the two ramps. C'mon Ottawa, we can fix this kind of thing.

@david_megginson No but I don't mind raising awareness about invisible disabilities bc there's still so much ignorance, and that leads to discrimination and abuse.

Wow, Bluesfest about to get even more terrible for anyone but VIP ticket holders - they're moving the VIP area to right in front of the stage so the plebs have to surround fences and be penned in on all sides. Nice.

    @grivettcarnac Generally, car people pay more taxes. It's a transactional approach to public services. It is flawed and tilted away from those of us who need services more than the rich suburbanites do. Generally speaking, of course.

    What can you get to within a 15-minute walk of your house?

    A recent YouGov survey asked Americans what they think they should be able to get to within a 15-minute walk of their house.

    Of these choices, I can currently walk to all of them from my apartment, aside from a university (no biggie, I'm not currently studying, although there is a Tafe within walking distance), a hospital, and a sports arena.

    How many can you get to with a 15 minute walk from your house?

    A reminder that Premier Ford is offering family doctors a 0% increase at a time when there's a dire shortage & family doctors are fleeing in droves.
    The Ford govt says they're "trying to get more family doctors" but the fact that the $38 per patient visit hasn’t increased in more than 5 years proves they really aren't.
    Also 💥​ 's pharmacist reimbursements for those bogus phone "medication checks" are DOUBLE what a family doctor get paid per in person visit.
