Perfect Timing

12 Status of Women offices set to close. And this just after the release of the Pinko Women's Book by the new dumb brunette, Bullshit Stronach. From what I've been seeing, hearing, and reading, from REAL women, the only women happy with this little socialist pamphlet are the silverspoon elitist socialists like Judy "see me eat piza and strip" Seeeeegrrrrrowww, BS, and of course various parasites living off the tax-payer dollar. Maybe it had something to do with the "barefoot & pregnant" comment, or the more demeaning statement that "women who advance on their own abilities, smarts, and perseverance are hurting the women's equality movement" Huh?? But anyway, that's another days subject.
Right now I am happy to see another sociailist Lieberal money-wasting, trough-feeding program shut down. Why? because the SOW and their little piglets do Zilch,Zero,Nada,Zip to advance anything except the hope that they keep feeding off my bucks. And besides, they are outright biased.
This from their website....To be eligible for Women's Program funding, an organization's mandate and objectives must reflect:
Section 15 of the Canadian Charter of Rights and Freedoms, which stipulates, "(1) Every individual is equal before and under the law and has the right to the equal protection and equal benefit of the law without discrimination and, in particular, without discrimination based on race, national or ethnic origin, colour, religion, sex, age or mental or physical disability" and "(2) Subsection (1) does not preclude any law, program or activity that has as its object the amelioration of conditions of disadvantaged individuals or groups, including those that are disadvantaged because of race, national or ethnic origin, colour, religion, sex, age or mental or physical disability"; and
It functions democratically and demonstrates responsible governance;
It demonstrates fiscal responsibility and organizational stability.

Sounds nice, this little snippet from the Useless Charter. but then they say this...Priority will be given to projects addressing issues pertaining to the following:
Aboriginal women
Immigrant women and visible minority women
Senior women.

Ahhhhhhh. So if you are a normal, white, 20-64 year old women trying to start a business that will employ females, forget it. When a group states the above, you know where your request will be in the pile. And lets not forget that according to BS, women who try to advance themselves without getting help from SOW are against equality for women. Go figure. But then, any woman displaying initiative is DEFINITELY against the "cradle-to-grave" welfare state these socialist Lieberals are trying to get.
The biggest problem with SOW is they are in fact nothing more than a money distribution scam. This can be done better, and far more cost effectively, by gicing the money DIRECTLY to groups who actually go out and help women, like shelters for abused women. Personally I can't think of a more appropriate acronym for this bureaucratic group of useless twits then SOW. Fits their pig-like trough feeding perfectly.
Maybe they can team-up with BS, Stripper Seeeegrrrow, and Hedy "cross-burning" Fry and put out the next pamphlet, probably rainbow coloured. For a bit more on the "Pinko Pamphlet", Krista Boryskavich has a good article.

Same Old Same Old

It should really come as no surprise to anybody that Auditor General Sheila Fraser has found more rampant government waste and theft of taxpayer's money. Although all the fiures are not out yet, there is at least $508 Million that was either stolen, mismanged, or misappropriated.
Auditor General Sheila Fraser released another damning report yesterday on serious abuses and wrongdoings by the federal government.
Please see the link for the highlights, everything from a former football star ripping us off to the RCMP and Border Services having no control over credit card accounts. Makes me feel secure!
This one scared me out of my early morning nap...Health Canada fails to ensure its regulation of drugs, pacemakers, infant cribs and other areas is up to the task, raising questions about dangerous gaps in safety.
Raising questions? It should be raising bloody blue hell! Remember, this is the department whose head honcho ADMITTED that they would allow some people to die instead of improving the system that approves drugs. Of course he used that old socialist ploy of "what's a few compared to many?"
And just before anybody starts, yes it is the Federal Lieberals fault. PMSH hasn't had the time to change anything yet in the bloated trough-sucking Utopia of Federal Lieberdom. Every one of the departments mentioned has a bureaucracy run by and appointed by lefties, and their former Lieberal leaders. Much more stuff can be found here, here, and here.
By the way, I had to steal this from Tim. " It just occured to me that it is much better to be a right(wingnut) than a left(wingnut). Everyone knows, when you turn a wingnut to left, it comes off and can support nothing. On the other hand, when you turn a wingnut to the right, it binds things together. Enough said."

Why Christians?

Maybe I can get a couple of answers on here. Why do Christians have to bend over backwards for every secular/socialist/non-christian dipwad who wants to foist their beliefs on us, but we can't do the same? You don't want my Nativity scene up, fine, but I had better not see your damn candle stick holder in your front window! Don't like the cross am wearing because it reminds you that at least my prophet had the guts to die for me, unlike yours? Fine. But if I see that "ceremonial knife" on your waist, I will shove it where the sun doesn't shine. You want rights? Not until you respect mine!!! You want your sharia law instead of Canadian? Fine. I have an airplane ticket with your name on it back to the shithole you came from.
And by the way people, shop at Wal-mart this Christmas season. They are saying Merry Christmas, and meaning it!

I'm Off To Jail

Canada's prisoners need a raise, says the correctional investigator of federal penitentiaries. The maximum wage is set at $6.90 per day. This rate is paid for participation in prison programs, working in the laundry department, and in certain workshops, including metal, wood and textile. "An enormous adjustment is required," Sapers said, noting increasing prisoners' wages would help them develop a sense of responsibility and improve their chances of reintegrating into society.
So just how is this supposed to work? These guys/gals have a zero sense of responsibility to start with, and that can be improved by giving them more bucks? You know, I thought Sapers was a pretty level-headed guy, bit it appears his true socialist colours of throwing more bucks at a problem are coming through. So these clowns broke society's rules, probably most of them trying to get money to support their various drug habits, and we should give them MORE money?
Federal inmates get three free meals a day as well as essential items, such as soap. But they have to pay out of their own pockets for additional treats, like cigarettes, booze and chocolate.
Okay. Since when the hell is BOOZE legal in our federal jails? And chocolate. And smokes. No wonder they call these places "Club Fed"!! And lets not forget the FREE university/college education if they want it. Free to them, but not us poor taxpayers. Maybe more of the students in secondary education programs should seriously consider getting a jail sentence of 2 years plus a day. Then us taxpayers can fully pay for their degrees. And just think. No post-college debt for them! Oh. And don't the Feds have a no smoking campaign on the go?
Correctional Service Canada is studying the possibility of increasing prisoner compensation, as well as indexing it to the rate of inflation.
Say what? Prisoners may be getting a COLA clause in their contracts, but 99% of working Canucks don't have this? Just what kind of screwed-up banana republic have we become?
Anyways. Enough of this. I gotta go rob a bank. I need the raise in salary and benefits.

I just had to steal this from Tim. It is pure genius in its reasoning and simplicity.

The following is an actual question given on the University of Washington chemistry mid-term.The answer by one student was so "profound" that the professor shared it with colleagues, via the Internet, which is, of course, why we now have the pleasure of enjoying it as well:Bonus Question: Is Hell exothermic (gives off heat) or endothermic (absorbs heat)?Most of the students wrote proofs of their beliefs using Boyle's Law (gas cools when it expands and heats when it is compressed) or some variant.One student, however, wrote the following:First, we need to know how the mass of Hell is changing in time. So we need to know the rate at which souls are moving into Hell and the rate at which they are leaving. I think that we can safely assume the at once a soul gets to Hell it will not leave. Therefore, no souls are leaving. As for how many souls are entering Hell, let's look at the different religions that exist in the world today. Most of these religions state that if you are not a member of their religion, you will go to Hell. Since there is more than one of these religions and since people do not belong to more than one religion, we can project that all souls go to Hell.With birth and death rates being as they are, we can expect the number of souls in Hell to increase exponentially.Now, we look at the rate of change of the volume in Hell because Boyle's Law states that in order for the temperature and pressure in Hell to stay the same, the volume of Hell has to expand proportionately as souls are added.This gives two possibilities: 1. If Hell is expanding at a slower rate than the rate at which souls enter Hell, then the temperature and pressure in Hell will increase until all Hell breaks loose.2. If Hell is expanding at a rate faster than the increase of Souls in Hell, then the temperature and pressure will drop until Hell freezes over.So which is it?If we accept the postulate given to me by Teresa during my Freshman year that, "It will be a cold day in Hell before I sleep with you," and take into account the fact that I slept with her last night, then number two must be true, and thus I am sure that Hell is exothermic and has already frozen over. The corollary of this theory is that since Hell has frozen over,it follows that it is not accepting any more souls and is therefore, extinct leaving only Heaven, thereby proving the existence of a divine being which explains why, last night, Teresa kept shouting "Oh my God!"

Canada's Lefties Still At It

Palestinian rights being trampled, Arbour says. "The violation of human rights I think in this territory is massive," Ms. Arbour said after emerging from the Athamna house, a building that has come to represent the misery of this town, which is used as a launching pad by militants who insist on firing rockets into Israel, bringing massive and deadly responses. "I think the call for protection has to be answered. I think we cannot continue to see civilians who are not the authors of their own misfortune continue to suffer."
Well. She got the call about human rights violations right, but, as per usual with the left, she got the territory wrong. I guess Israelis don't have rights, only terrorists. It is a proven fact that Palestinian's frequently and willing use themselves as human shields for Hamas and Hezbollah, just so that they can dupe the lefties into screaming about violations of their rights and mass murder. And lefties like Arbour buy into it. Look, it is a proven fact that the left is anti-Christian, anti-Semitic, pro-Islam and anti-nationalist, whatever the nationality might be. And let us not forget the next step from that pryamid scheme called socialism (the left) is communism.
But back to Arbour and her stupid comment. So according to her it is alright for the Palestians to bomb innocent Israeli civilians, but not for Israel to defend herself. Well of course it is. This is just the way socialists think. And that includes the Useless Nations, who have investigated Israel three times since June for crimes against Lebanon.
So what about the hundreds of rockets that rained down on Israel from Lebanon, fired off by Hezbollah? Guess they didn't "kill" or "murder" any Israeli's! And just so you know, this group the Useless Nations and Arbour are standing up for, Hezbollah, was declared a terrorist group and had to be dismantled and disarmed! BY THE USELESS NATIONS.
Arbour just exemplifies exactly what the socialists and their stooges, the MSM, will stoop too in their war on traditional morals and values of the West. Want a few examples? Sure.
The lib-left media uses words such as "some civilians died in the latest bombing by Hezbollah, in such Israeli city." On the same breath, they will say '...showing excessive force, Israel has KILLED forty innocent civilians in the latest raid of such city in Lebanon (it later turned out to be only four dead)"
The fact that Israel has gone way out of its way to warn innocent civilians in Lebanon,of impending attacks, so they could find a safe place to be (and the terrorists with them), has "escaped" most of the lib-left reporters, if not all.
By the same token, the undeniable fact that Hezbollahs' coward terrorists have been hiding amongst civilians, while deliberately targeting innocent Israelis, with their rockets, has also escaped the lib-left reporters as well as the likes of Louise Arbour.
But what do facts have to do with reporting, right?


Very tempting to say something nasty about this.


UN high commissioner on human rights announces she will not meet with families of three kidnapped soldiers during Israel visit. Eldad Regev's brother: 'Decision not to meet families should set off red lights of UN stance behind resolution'

Riigghhtt. And she isn't a hypocritical bitch, like all lefties. Again, why let facts get in the way!!

Proud to be White

Someone finally said it. How many are actually paying attention to this?

There are African Americans, Mexican Americans, Asian
Americans, Arab Americans, Native Americans, etc. and then there are
just Americans.
You pass me on the street and sneer in my direction. You
call me "White boy," "Cracker," "Honkey," "Whitey,"
"Caveman" and that's OK.
But when I call you, Nigger, Kike, Towelhead, Sand-nigger, camel
Jockey, Beaner, Gook, or Chink you call me a racist.
You say that whites commit a lot of violence against you,
so why are the ghettos the most dangerous places to live?
You have the United Negro College Fund.
You have Martin Luther King Day.
You have Black History Month.
You have Cesar Chavez Day.
You have Yom Hashoah
You have Ma'uled Al-Nabi
You have the NAACP.
You have BET.
If we had WET(White Entertainment Television) we'd be racists.
If we had a White Pride Day you would call us racists.
If we had White History Month, we'd be racists.
If we had any organization for only whites to "advance"
our lives, we'd be racists.
We have a Hispanic Chamber of Commerce, a Black Chamber of
Commerce, and then we just have the plain Chamber of Commerce.
Wonder who pays for that?
If we had a college fund that only gave white students scholarships,
you know we'd be racists. There are over 60 openly proclaimed Black
Colleges in the US, yet if there were "White colleges"
that would be a racist college.
In the Million Man March, you believed that you were
marching for your race and rights. If we marched for our race and
rights, you would call us racists.
You are proud to be black, brown, yellow and orange, and
you're not afraid to announce it. But when we announce our white pride,
you call us racists.
You rob us, carjack us, and shoot at us. But, when a white police
officer shoots a black gang member or beats up a black
drug-dealer running from the law and posing a threat to society, you
call him a racist.
I am proud. But, you call me a racist.
Why is it that only whites can be racists?
And before any of you smug Canucks laugh at this and say stupid Yanks, take a long, hard look in the mirror. It is happening here, and more then the MSM or lefties dare to let on.

I Am Confused

The loopy left just keeps confusing me.
Toews under fire for plan to let police play role in vetting judges.
For you people living under a rock, Justice Minister Vic Toews' plan is to revamp the group that recommends judges to allow police officers a say in the process. I agree, seeing as cops are on the front lines and see first hand the results of our present "hug-a-thug" judges and their ridiculous sentencings. Now here is where I get confused by the socialists.
"It's part of a bigger picture where this government seems to have a strong underlying distrust of the (current) judiciary," says Ed Ratushny, a University of Ottawa law professor.
"I can't imagine what objective they could have in mind, other than to look for lawyers who will be hard-assed, law-and-order judges."

Excuse me, Ed, but anybody except a bleeding heart leftie DOES have a strong distrust of our current crop of so-called judges. Four kids murder another one because he kicked them out of his house party, and the worse one got was 4 years, and the other 3 house arrest, in their basements with Mommy. A modern day Marquis DeSade husband/wife team beat, torture,rape, and mentally abuse young girls for years, and they get SUSPENDED sentences! And excuse be, but aren't judges SUPPOSED to be hard-assed, law-and-order judges!
Parker MacCarthy, president of the Canadian Bar Association, also wants more debate. "There's an appearance that the process is going to be more open to political influence," says MacCarthy."I think we're moving in a direction that may not be particularly helpful."
You mean that the previous Lieberal governments that loaded the Supreme Court with their own, hand picked lefties wasn't a "political process"?? Notice how when they can't defend the previous crap, socialists employ ad hominem attacks?
Executive director Tony Canavino insists that police can be as objective as anyone else and can offer a unique "practical perspective" on the justice system.
Clayton Ruby, a leading criminal defence lawyer, begs to differ.
"They don't possess the independence required to give good advice," says Ruby. "They're an interested party. It's just nonsense."

Lets see. Of the current 7 on the panel, 1 is a judge, and two are lawyers. You expect to tell me they are not "interested parties"? Do these quackers think we are stupid? Well, maybe they are right about Queerbec and Arsetario, but not the West.
You know. One thing I am learning from the lefties though is this: they actually stand for absolutly nothing but themselves. They don't give two shits about you or me, or else they wouldn't be screaming so much and trying to deflect so much attention away from how THEIR socialist Utopia that has utterly failed. Otherwise they would be backing up anybody trying to change the system by getting rid of "hug-a thug" judges. They scream about more gun laws, then when a bill is brought before the House to make MANDATORY sentences of 10 years plus for gun crimes, they stall it and want it revamped!! Shows what their true colours are.

And The Useless Nations Stumbles On

Just when you thought they could not get any more useless.
UN committee votes to discourage condemning countries on human rights
A UN General Assembly committee has voted to discourage UN human rights bodies from condemning any country on human rights, despite objections to the measure from the United States and many European countries.
The draft resolution - sponsored by Belarus and Uzbekistan, both of which have been accused of serious human rights abuses - was approved by the assembly's human rights committee on a 77-63 vote, with 26 abstentions. It now goes to the full 192-member General Assembly for a final vote.

Well there you have it. The true colours of the Useless Nations is finely showing through. They are NOT an organization concerned about human rights, but rather a leftie/socialist/markist/dictator country club. Of the current 192 member states, a quick review shows that 150 of them are either African tribal countries, dictatorial countries, communist, socialist, markist, facist, shiekdoms, or a combination thereof. No wonder any democratic country with half a brain disregards any crap coming out of this so-called world body.
The new Human Rights Council in Geneva, which earlier this year replaced the discredited Human Rights Commission, has met three times to pass resolutions condemning Israel but hasn't dealt with human rights in Myanmar, North Korea or Sudan.
Well of course they haven't. If they condemn Myanmar, they might offend the poor little murderous Muzzies. North Korea? Don't want to offend bona fide psychopaths. Sudan? No way. Kofi might lose some of the kickbacks he and his family get for the warlords. But no problem picking on Israel for these anti-sematics, just because she stands up for the right to survive against Islamofascists.
Check out part of the preamble of the Useless reaffirm faith in fundamental human rights, in the dignity and worth of the human person, in the equal rights of men and women and of nations large and small,
So they have just confirmed that THEIR understanding of fundamental human rights is that you can enslave,denigrate,murder, and just generally oppress anybody, as long as they belong that select non-democratic society of theirs.
Soooooo. Will this cut down on any condemnation against the U.S. for using "torture" tactics on terrorists? If you think so, I want some of what you are smoking. Will this stop them from bitching against us Canucks about our "supposed" mistreatment of Indians? And you still believe that Brittany Spears is a virgin. After all, they just confirmed that they can no longer do this. And yes. It will get voted through the general assembly. 42 against 150 don't have much hope.
Here's a thought. How about us here in Canuckistan seriously start talking separation again? Only this time to get the hell out of the U.N. Ever wonder why they flew airplanes into the WTC instead of the U.N.? If you are half awake and not brain dead, you know the answer, but for the lefties out there, here's the don't shit in your own backyard. And the Useless Nations have just confirmed they are the backyard for any country who want to do whatever they want to exploit their people or advance their homocidal, psychopathic agendas.

About Time

Political correctness gone too far, ADQ Leader says.

A Montreal community health clinic has come under fire for excluding men from their neonatal classes to accommodate the sensibilities of Muslim, Sihk and Hindu women.

Right on, Mario. For far to long this country has bent overbackwards for ungrateful bastards who come here, and then live off our socialist welfare/medical system, paid for by MY tax dollars. Then they scream racism or some such shit when somebody calls them on it. You come here, you damn well had better have a job and have learned passable English within 6 months, or your sorry ass is on the next boat back to whatever dictator run backwater you came from. And that includes all the hanger-ons you snuck pass our sorry Immigration system too.

ADQ Leader Mario Dumont said the prohibition exceeds the limits of common sense.
He said it's unreasonable that a Quebec taxpayer is barred from joining his pregnant girlfriend at a health clinic because his presence would offend others.
Religious and cultural accommodations in light of the Charter of Rights and Freedoms no longer makes sense, Mr. Dumont said ahead of a weekend convention of l'Action democratique du Quebec.

The only thing I can fault Mssr.Dumont on is his use of "common sense" and the "Charter" in the same article. Otherwise he has nailed it. Okay, maybe this was a little mis-understated also...“We are completely moving to misusing the Charter and that is starting to worry me.”

Moving?? We have been at total misuse of this piece of garbage since the day the lefties rammed it down our throats! Just look at the fag/lesbo marriage thing. The "Charter" states quite specifically that NO ONE can be persecuted or discriminated against for their religious beliefs. Yet the bumscrewers want to jail every priest, minister, and rabbi that refuse to "marry" them because it is against their religious beliefs.
It also states that "Everyone has the right to life, liberty and security of the person and the right not to be deprived thereof except in accordance with the principles of fundamental justice." Unless of course you are any ordinary citizen wanting to hunt duck, or protect yourself from some thug.

And of course we have this little gem... Citizens of Canada
a) whose first language learned and still understood is that of the English or French linguistic minority population of the province in which they reside, or
b) who have received their primary school instruction in Canada in English or French and reside in a province where the language in which they received that instruction is the language of the English or French linguistic minority population of the province,have the right to have their children receive primary and secondary school instruction in that language in that province

Uhuh. Tell that to the minority Anglos in Queerbec trying to get their kid into English Kindergarten or Grade 1.

I could go on. In fact EVERY right or freedom stated in the piece of garbage called the "Charter" has been violated or totally abused already, thanks to the gutless leftie politicos of the last 13 years and their ass-kissing minions on the Supreme Court. Like the joke goes, what do you call a lawyer who has no understanding of the law and morals, and flunked the bar exam at least 3 times? A Supreme Court Judge.

Seems funny that somebody in Queerbec would finally get fed up enough to say ENOUGH IS ENOUGH, but I guess it has got to start somwhere. I just pray it is no to late.

His Spector Still Haunts Us

No matter want we do, it seems, short of declaring him illegal and a health hazard, PET and his whiny offspring will continue to haunt us. A recent poll commissioned by the Pierre Elliott Trudeau Foundation has found some interesting facts (?) concerning immigration and multiculturalism in Canada.
As reported by the Red Star, "There's a limit to Canadians' acceptance of multiculturalism, especially when a group's beliefs on gender equality clash with "mainstream" values, " So just what are these "values"? Wellllll. It seems that should read VALUE. The only mention of any value was that "81 per cent of respondents in the Environics survey said newcomers should adapt to Canadian values on the rights and role of women." Great. I happen to agree with that.
But then the poll falls apart, unless you happen to be a socialist, commie leftie.
This scares the hell out of me: the poll "found that half of Canadians had a positive impression of Islam — a 4 percentage point increase from 2003 — despite post-9/11 backlash and the June arrests of members of an alleged terrorist cell in Toronto. One in three said Muslims were "rarely" portrayed fairly in the media." Lord thunderin Jesus. Have the Islamofacists succeeded that well with their and the MSM's brainwashing here in Canuckistan? Muslims were "rarely portrayed fairly in the media??? Are these goons stupid, deaf, dumb, and blind? Or a combination of all? Guess what, you little dhimis. When your compatriots and fellow believers in the "Religion of Peace" stop the suicide bombings, beheading of captives, etc, then maybe the rest of us will look upon you a little better! "Almost seven of 10 respondents said law-abiding Canadian Muslims should not personally feel responsible for terrorist acts committed by others in the name of their religion." WRONG!! Until these law-abiding Islamolites stand-up and start turning in their fellow terrorists, they ARE responsible. It's called aiding and abbeting.
And of course we have this little gem, which is every social engineers dream: "68 per cent objected to the idea of screening potential immigrants' religious beliefs and values." Ah yes. And the Dippers wonder why other countries look on us as the West's terrorist haven?
Of course CAIR-CAN was also mentioned, but I'll let you read their tripe.
Keep in mind, this is a poll, and we all know how accurate they are ( and NO, I don't mean +/- 3%). Still, that we have even a small amount of sympathizer's for Islamofascism should be cause for concern.

Let The Snow Job Begin

Well, after constant nagging, I've decided to return. I have no idea what to start with. ABF seems to have the Global warming scam covered pretty good. Gayle has the you-all side covered. And everybody else covers everything else. Sigh.
Guess I'll just do a quikie on the Edmonton city snow-job. Yesterday morning the snow started falling in earnest, and by noon the heavy snowfall warnings were out. Yet the head turd for clearing our streets ( now there's an oxymoron in Edmonton in the winter) said they weren't going to get anybody out in large numbers until it had "accumulated a bit"! So at 6:00 PM, after 2 inches of wet snow had fallen, they decided to send out the word. Needless to say, the fight had already been lost.
At 5:30 this morning I was on the Whitemud, happily(?) scooting to work. You just know the road is crap when the semis are doing 50 KMH!!. And the intersections? The Oiler's can only dream they had ice that good at Rexall Place! The only blessing was that 91st Street southbound was still snow-covered, so traction was to be had.
Of course at 7 the excuses started from the city. The one I got the biggest kcik out of was that when they called for the contracted graders, only about 53 showed up, instead of the regular 90+. It was blamed on the fact that due to the booming economy, they had found better paying gigs. So now instead of the main drags being plowed and hopefully upgraded to fair winter conditions within 48 hours, it will take 96. Maybe all those contractors got jobs on city council, what with the nice 13% pay raise they are getting, not counting the added new perks also!
But be warned. YOU still have to have the sidewalk in front of your abode cleared to bare concrete within 48 hours, or bylaw will nab you. Something is clearing backwards here. Oh well. It is Edmonchuck. To bad the rodeo is over. At least a horse could get through the drifts easier than me!
So how come Winnipeg, with only 200 less kilometers of roadways, lanes and sidewalks then us, lower property taxes then us, and a smaller population then us, can have ALL their streets and sidewalks cleared within 72 hours of a major snowfall, and we can't even get our side streets done, UNLESS there is at least 10 inches of snowpack, and then only if there is a danger that emergency crews can't respond??? And remember, in the "Peg, a major snowfall is at least a foot in 24 hours. Something stinks in Edmonchuck when it comes to snow removal.
