RT @CanadianForums: Ontario consumers pay millions to subsidize electricity exports - http://bit.ly/Q7nqPF
@CDNOlympicTeam All we can ask for is personal best times and scores. If that's not enough for a medal, so be it - be proud.
@marktewks I'll never forget 20 (yikes) yrs ago. We were visiting the US and had to endure watching Olympics on US TV... (cont'd)
@marktewks US commentator in your gold medal event said "The Canadian is holding his own" just before you out-touched for win... (cont'd)
@marktewks Then silence... One of my all time proud Cdn moments. Thanks for that.
Canadian band, The Wilderness of Manitoba, has van stolen in London on first night of UK tour. Ouch!
Like disappearing at centre & reappearing in crease lol? MT @Bozie42: Just saw @D_Copperfield. Wish I knew how to do that stuff.
RT @CTVBarrieNews: Correction: Three IEDs were detonated at the BARRIE BOARD OF WORKS tonight, not on Virgilwood Crescent
> @CTVBarrieNews Never heard of that before. Where and what is it?
RT @OPP_GTATraffic: Hwy 400 NB at Mapleview Drive, Barrie: Disabled vehicle blocking the centre lane

@T_Burrows: Q3. Is there any requirement for the public to be authentic?
> @T_Burrows A3: Absolutely! Communication is a 2-way street.
> @T_Burrows: Q4. Is there an assumption that police aren’t authentic when they say they can’t provide all details for an event?
> @T_Burrows A4: Perhaps by some, but integrity of case has to be preserved for courts despite public's hunger for details.
> @T_Burrows: The authenticity killer: Q6: Is it fair to hold a department accountable for the actions of an officer. ie-charged for an offence
> @T_Burrows A6: Not at all. I still go to the doctor, dentist, etc. despite the bad apples.
> @KJjournalist: And those bad apples are the ones that sell the papers...
> @KJjournalist Exactly right. Unfortunately.
> @T_Burrows: Here is the transcript for tonights copchat. It will take about hr to fully load up - http://bit.ly/N64C36
> @T_Burrows Thanks for hosting Tim. Looking forward to catching up on all the tweets that flew by over the last hour.

@AdamStilesCITY It would be hilarious if you used Hugh's picture for the frizz factor - same picture for all.

Happy 4th of July to our southern neighbours.
RT @ReconGeni: @DonMcNevin @sdj102 Basic watersafety skills would prevent drownings. Surprised 2 meet ppl who don't know how 2 swim. Swimming is a life skill.
> @ReconGeni But sadly, too little training gives (parents) false sense of security. cc. @DonMcNevin @sdj102
> @ReconGeni: @SunPosition Many people go w/the 'it won't happen to me' mentality or don't realize conditions of water: fast current/ undertow/ quarry depth
> @ReconGeni Exactly. Our 3 kids, now adults, were all lifeguards. Drowning, or at least distress, can literally happen in seconds.
No kidding & too bad about the involuntary key changes. RT @BigStewy: Take your hat off when singing our national anthem
Happy C eh N eh D eh Day eh!
@armdog Congrats Colby! Wish you could have stayed in Toronto but best of luck in Montreal. You'll come back to burn the Leafs.
