Minus two points for cheating on Manitoba Day

Here’s a fun little video from the Free Press. Even though the Freep calls it a tie, I’m giving Swan the victory on this one. Hugh clearly didn’t know Tom Burgess was the quarterback for the Bombers in 1990. You can tell he was getting a little help from his political aides.

"50 km/h when children are present"

Now that the issue of photo radar in construction zones “when workers are present” has been dealt with, I wonder if we can now take it one step further.

I would like the city to put signs up in school zones stating “50 km/h when children are present” and in every intersection stating “60 km/h when other cars are present”. If no construction workers, kids or cars are around, I’m plowing through at high speeds. Can I really tell if workers and kids are around until it's too late?...probably not but what's one or two kids when you can shave 30 seconds off your trip.

I’m not a fan of photo radar, but this debate is getting a bit silly.

And if I do get a ticket, it better be in both official languages.
