|Kittysaursus thwarted the attack on Tokyo.|
As Medicine Hat braced for the flood bearing down on the city, receding waters in Calgary allowed 65,000 flooded-out residents to return home — revealing a staggering toll of a deluge that swallowed up stretches of road, lifted CTrain rails and left piles of debris in its wake.
Well, that's understandable:
Alberta Premier Alison Redford on Monday promised C$1 billion ($950 million) in initial funding to help pay for damage caused by major flooding this past weekend, and said the oil-rich province would no longer be able to balance its operating budget this year.
Lauren Broten resigns:
After nearly 10 years as an MPP, Liberal cabinet minister Laurel Broten is leaving politics.
Broten, Ontario's intergovernmental affairs minister, announced Sunday in a release that "it is time for me to look forward to the challenges of the next chapter in my career."
The MPP for Etobicoke-Lakeshore said she told Premier Kathleen Wynne she will step down as of July 2. She and her family will move to Halifax.
Let's abolish teachers' unions:
The Ontario English Catholic Teachers Association sent out an e-mail this week urging the province’s Catholic teachers to support a campaign promoting “safe abortion” and accusing the Vatican of furthering the plight of women targeted by sexual violence.
If these yahoos would be honest for once and admit that the only reason why they went into teaching in the first place was because that it was an easy profession to enter, further facilitated by being nominally Catholic and sufficiently liberal and because of mafia-like unions accountable to no one, then the healing can begin.
Imagine a world with real educators and not a lazy, mouth-breathing ideologue in sight.

Americans are living from paycheque to paycheque:
Roughly three-quarters of Americans are living paycheck-to-paycheck, with little to no emergency savings, according to a survey released by Bankrate.com Monday.
Fewer than one in four Americans have enough money in their savings account to cover at least six months of expenses, enough to help cushion the blow of a job loss, medical emergency or some other unexpected event, according to the survey of 1,000 adults. Meanwhile, 50% of those surveyed have less than a three-month cushion and 27% had no savings at all.

In Kenya, the native country of Barack Obama’s father, Kenyans are furious that Obama has eschewed visiting their country while he is traveling through Africa. Obama’s June 27th trip includes visits to Senegal, South Africa and Tanzania.
|Wow. You guys really thought Obama cared about you?|
She said whaaaaaaat?!
When Madonna came under criticism in a weekend interview with "Good Morning America," for using guns in her stage performances she answered, "The thing is, guns don't kill people, people kill people,"
Over at the Fur: Turkish Muslims in Germany demand that references to the Turkish massacre of Armenians be erased from textbooks, a professor with a pack of cards that all say: RACIST is just a moron with a pack of cards that all say: RACIST, there is no reason to give weapons or any support to monsters like these.
And now, S'mores hot chocolate. Enjoy.
