Dollar Worth Lots, Ad Space Worth Lots, And The Ottawa Citizen Makes A Boo-Boo
Dollar rises to 29-year high. At 91.58 cents U.S., it hasn’t been this high since 1978. Also hasn’t been this high since 1978: Gene Simmons, who totally found himself some amazingly killer bud last week.
The CRTC permits television networks to air more commercials per hour. Because you know who’s totally victimized in this country? Television networks—the guys who make a fortune airing TV shows the Americans make and slapping their own commercials on ’em. Now there’s even less incentive for them to make Canadian TV shows! Hooray for the CRTC.
Green bins in condos? It’s in the works. Along with additional plans that will see Toronto diverting 70 percent of garbage from landfill in three years.
Toronto police spied on members of the city’s gay community in the 1980s. In fairness, those citizens under surveillance probably should have figured it out after comments like, “Would you like to go to the park for a sexual encounter while under the influence of illegal drugs? Please speak into my enormous lapel carnation to indicate yes or no.”
And finally, one man this week learned a valuable lesson: do not have almost the same name as a rapist if you live in Ottawa, because the Ottawa Citizen makes very silly mistakes sometimes.
