The Symphony...
Last night I went to the symphony at the NAC (National Arts Centre) with my friend Jane to see their Tribute to the Boston Pops. We got tickets in box seats through LiveBuzz 2 hours before the concert for only $9.50. Normal price: $88.00! The concert was really good. They played the theme song from Hockey Night in Canada as an encore, which was fun.
It`s really hot and humid right now. The actual temperature is only around 30C, but when you add in the 85% humidity, it feels like 38-40C! Being a WestCoast wimp, I can`t take it! It`s the humidity that kills, not the heat...

Yah, every day they say we`re supposed to have thunder showers in the evening. I`m still waiting...

After 9 days of rain we are starting to dry out here in Alberta. Was there much talk about the court decission? I sort of agree with the ruling. Fund it or let people pay their own way. Universality has come to mean universally long waits.

Surprisingly, I haven`t heard a lot about it, yet. The decision was on the front page of all of the newspapers, but nobody has really talked about it...

Sounds like Tim's just getting older, feeling his age and wanting that safety net there.

Lol, to each his own...

Yea I'll be 44 in a month so keeping the health system viable is important to me! I don't like the US system (they don't either) but forcing everyone to have to wait just to placate the socialist nirvana of everyone being the same is silly. Right now the richest 1% of canucks can get things done in the US or offshore. With this ruling I think 5-10% of Canadians could get it done and pay for it out of their own pockets if they don't want to wait.

We'll see.
