Pardon my French
Canada's federal government has put its very useful Termium French-English dictionary on the web for free. It is great for technical expressions that you would not find in a regular dictionary.

Another way to find translations for technical expressions in English or French is to go to Google and type: "site:gc.ca" and then the expression. This will make Google show you all the pages on the Government of Canada website that use the expression. Almost everything the government publishes on the internet is translated, so once you have found your expression somewhere on a government website, click "Francais" at the top of the page to find out how the government translated it.

Koodo Mobile = Telus with less Sucks?
Koodo Mobile is a new low-cost brand of Telus Mobility. They seem to have some really good deals compared with what I'm paying - and I'm with Telus right now.

No system access fee, no activation fee, no contracts, per-second billing. This looks like a serious play by Telus to lower the costs of wireless service in Canada. Cool!

Now if they only supported the iPhone...

Misleading advertising
I got excited when I saw this on air canada:

All you can fly! Unlimited travel for the price of a single ticket!

Winter Getaway Pass - North America - One traveller - 2 months. Unlimited: $799.00

Fine print: Flight Pass prices quoted above are per month and in Canadian dollars and do not include GST and QST, where applicable.

So basically, the price is in fact DOUBLE what they're advertising. What a bunch of wankers. Also, you can only travel on Tuesdays, Saturdays and Sundays. That's a bit of a stretch on the word "unlimited". If it were truly unlimited, I'd be able to fly whenever they have flights.

Toronto


Toronto often gets unfairly disparaged by the rest of Canada. Mostly by people who have never been there, or passed through once without any connection into the city. In reality, Toronto is an amazingly active, vibrant, and thriving metropolis. Diverse neighborhoods intertwined to form an economic and cultural powerhouse in North America.

Curbside bike parking posts and compost collection alongside recycling are 2 nice touches I wish Vancouver would copy. I also award Toronto the best public transit system of Canada's big 3 cities.

I posted my photos from Toronto including Daron and Jon's wedding.
