Chalk River reactor’s risk level was 1,000 times greater than normal. However, Stephen Harper is a certified nuclear engineer, so if he says it’s safe, then shouldn’t we trust him? Wait, what? He’s not a certified nuclear engineer? Well, dang.
John McCain wins crucial Florida primary. The old coot narrowly defeated the Mormon android and the world’s angriest ex-mayor to maintain his momentum in the Republican candidates’ race. Meanwhile, Hillary Clinton beat Barack Obama in the delegate-less Florida Democratic primary, which depending on who you talk to was either a meaningless no-score win or the crucial turning point of the race.
Toronto trustees vote in favour of black-focused schools. (No joke for this news item. I’m too chicken. Deal with it.)
Ontario judge is an idiot. Turns out that Jon-Jo Douglas thinks that HIV viruses are able to stay active without water for years, and for this reason he insisted that an HIV-positive witness don a facemask while testifying in his courtroom.

Charles Smith admits he “lost perspective” and made untrue statements as a pathologist. But hey, it’s only the innocence and freedom of potentially innocent individuals at stake here, so don’t worry about it. (Interesting sidenote: the government has opened up all Smith cases after 1991, but not beforehand, presumably because in 1991, Charles Smith just turned evil. Before 1991: perfect judgement. After 1991: evil!)
And the Raptors lost a squeaker in overtime last night.
