Well right now it’s around 2:00 on a Friday, working through my nap to keep my New Year friggin resolution. Anyhow The way I normally like to drive to work requires a cut-left a block before the light, casual drive through a neighborhood, right/left back onto the main road without the hassle at the light […]Read More »

Okay….so maybe this is a sore spot. The rules, laws, regulations blah blah blah set up around WHMIS 2015, SDS versus MSDS, Global Harmonization and expiry dates are not confusing at all, if you have the 17 days, 4hours and 37 minutes to read them. BUT… This is actually something that makes sense. I want […]Read More »

Okay…I almost forgot but something has been bugging my arse…that’s a really cool word we should use more often. Have you been following the NAFTA debate? Softwood lumber and automobiles. Yes it’s serious, very serious, powerfully serious. My vote???? If it mattered? Kill NAFTA and let free trade rule. NAFTA has nothing to do with […]Read More »

Luckily enough they were being accompanied by that famous Canadian detective, JB “Gord” Fletcher (no relationship). And […]Read More »
Here’s the bare facts: I believe the Industry has been given a false sense of comfort on the Evo Express and tampering. Is the Evo 100% safe in preventing secondary poisoning? Nope. The other problem is we only have bromadiolone to use outdoors. (except in underground burrows which is considered “indoors”) Of the 2 – […]Read More »
I’ve beat this dead horse before, until it turned into horse jerky, but a word from the wise (me!) Tamper Proof – nothing can get inside (like my brain) Tamper Resistant – kinda holds ’em back (like my diet) Tamper Evident – red flag goes up once it’s been tampered with (like my hand in […]Read More »
Just read this and either shake your head, laugh, say WTF or maybe get on the phone to your MP and ask why your tax dollars are going to waste.
