  1. Why would anyone fish the upper or lower when we can fish for better fish through the ice?
  2. I was out from 7am-Noon straight out from the trailers at FM. Was in 15' on the south side and marked tons of fish but not even a nibble. I was able to count 62 huts from the dam down to VP's at one point in the morning. From the looks of it about half the people split around noon and I heard about 5 fish that were caught so it wasn't just me I guess. There has been massive fishing pressure there lately.
  3. What size suit are you looking for?
  4. If you hunt Gravelly Bay or want to support those who do, fill out the survey the town is doing now. You know the anti-hunting crowd is gathering the troops so hunters should be doing the same. http://www.portcolborne.ca/page/gravelly_bay
  5. Take a look at Port Colborne or Dunnville A&G as well. I am not a member of either but I have never heard a bad word spoken of either.
  6. The question is this... are there any provisions anywhere to allow someone to legally sell something like this online? If the answer is yes, I think you mind your own business and not be a nosey do-gooder. If the answer is no then make the call. If you are not 100% sure someone is breaking the law, don't get involved. If the person selling the mounts for some reason is doing such legally, now all you are doing is 1) wasting their time 2) creating a lot of stress for them without reason and 3) most likely costing them money. All that because you "think" they might be doing something wrong, not because you "know" they are doing something wrong. Maybe you guys like other people meddling in your business but I don't and I refuse to intervene in anyone else's business if there is any doubt whatsoever as to whether they are breaking the law or not. How would you feel if someone called the MNR because they felt you were fishing within 22.9m of a dam? Or maybe someone didn't see your flashlight in your boat and called the OPP on you? Some people need to get something better to do than tattle tale about something that is really none of their business.
  7. Are you a lawyer? I'm not a lawyer. One thing I despise is people who make false/unfounded accusations of others. Nobody reading an online ad knows 100% for sure that what this person is selling is illegal. Have you ever had false accusations made of you? I have, I have also seen it made of other people. I was indicted for theft over years ago. The trial lasted less than 5 minutes because I was innocent and the person who accused me was a wife beating drug addict. It cost me over 8 thousand dollars and a whole lot of stress. I know people who have had CAS called on them for no just reason and it is traumatic. Too many people "think" they know the law or "think" that something is wrong and set off a whole chain of events because they really do not know. I guarantee law enforcement regularly checks online sale sites looking for things like this. Let them do their job and for the rest of us, unless we are 100% sure someone is breaking the law, leave people alone. It's really that simple. Even more so in this case as no, I am no poaching by ignoring something like this because the animal is already dead. There is nothing about selling a mount that is even remotely close to poaching. Good way to try and spin it though.
  8. The way I see it is this... The deer that have been mounted are already dead. No harm is going to come of any animal and really what someone else is selling is none of my business. I really do hate do-gooders who are just looking to stick their nose into someone else's business that they have nothing to do with. I understand the reasoning for not being able to sell mounts as it pertains to hunters only looking to make a profit by specifically trying to kill wildlife to sell the mount. In this case why bother with someone else's business and even more so when you are just an anonymous person to them. What if the mounts for some reason are legal to sell? Do you know for sure that they are not? I really hate people who think they are doing the right thing by reporting a crime when they do not know 100% for certain that it is a crime. I say leave the person alone unless you know without a doubt that they have broken a law. I am pretty sure nobody here can say without a doubt that they are breaking a law as there are exceptions to selling wildlife mounts. Moral of the story... don't cry wolf.
  9. If the residents actually get traction on this we can only imagine boat motors will be the next "nuisance" they go after. I would ask the residents to name 3 instances where hunting in the bay has ever had a firearms safety related incident. Just because they don't like or are scared of firearms doesn't mean it's automatically a safety issue.
  10. Of course the customer gets screwed. I'll bet by the end of this year 80% of restaurants raise their prices because of this. 8 of the 10 provinces have a minimum wage of $10 per hour. Raising prices for a national/international company means screwing over the people in provinces with a lower minimum wage as well as this may make tim's coffee unaffordable to them. Speaking of Wynne... she is proposing free prescription coverage for people under 25... a ridiculously high minimum wage, which primarily benefits young people as they move into the working world, let's say a lot of people under 25. Now... what is the majority base of liberal supporter/voters? ya... the people under 25. All of this is a ploy to keep the voter base they have. Along with the handouts given to immigrants the liberals are securing their re-election.
  11. You're missing the point. These are entry level unskilled positions. If people want to make a better living they need to work their way up to a better position. I flunked out of college (sort of) after 1.5 years. I was working at Harvey's for minimum wage, like 6 bucks an hour. Now I live very comfortably because I worked my butt of to learn some skills and get paid well for them now. The corporation itself doesn't care about wages, it's not their problem. The corporation makes money via the monthly franchise fee and the sale of the materials to the stores. The wages and benefits are all on the individual store owners who have to pay this out of the difference between what they buy the product for and what they sell it for. These are the people who risked their money to open the store and who are responsible to pay the running costs. The corporation doesn't "cover" a store owner who has a bad month or year. The other thing to keep in mind is that an extra dollar per hour is more than that to the store owner. When an employer pays an employee they also pay a percentage to the government so $1 more is like $1.20 more to the business. If you figure 4 employees during slow hours and 20+ during busy hours, you average about 10 employees per hour of the day. That's an extra $12 per hour in operating costs. Almost $300 per day, Over a year that is $100,000 that the store owner has to pay out of his pocket. This doesn't cut into corporate revenue, it cuts into the guy who has invested his life savings into this one storefront. If you paid a million dollar to open a franchise restaurant and were paying over a million dollars per month in costs (fees, product, taxes, utilities, etc) and you were making $250,000 a year in profit, how would you feel about the government deciding to give 40% of you income away to unskilled people with not a single penny invested in your business that you have invested millions into? Just for clarity, I have no interesting in any business. I am just looking at this from a logical perspective knowing that all the hatred towards the tim horton's corporation is simple ignorance of how the franchise system works.
  12. Here's the problem with this whole Tim Horton's thing... It's the franchisee who puts up hundreds of thousands of their own dollars to open a store. That franchisee has to pay every month to use the Tim Horton's name. That franchisee has to buy the product from corporate at a set price. That franchisee has to pay the employees from the profits they make at a set price. That franchisee has to pay for the benefits, uniforms, etc. of its employees. This whole story is so misdirected it's retarded. The corporation isn't making or losing money on this, it's the individuals who have spent hundreds of thousands if not millions of their own dollars to open and run a store who are getting screwed. Like it or not, working at Tim's or any other fast food restaurant is not a "skilled" position, it's an entry level position. When an individual starts a company, they take risk, they believe they can make enough profit to outweigh that financial risk. Nobody ever talks about the additional money the employer has to pay to the government when wages go up. An extra dollar an hour to the employee is more than that to the employer. My suggestion to all those who feel that a higher minimum wage is better would be to start your own business sinking your entire life savings into it and then sit back and think of how great it is to take all that financial risk while giving employees all of your profit. Drop the half million to open it and then make sure that your unskilled employees make as much as you do. Get mad at Tim Horton's all you want but the only people you are hurting in reality are those who have taken the risk to open a store, hire and pay employees, the employees you think have it tough.

    ugh... 140 litres a week for me on average.
  14. The question that needs to be answered is which of these three options is right for you and this site: 1. Do you have enough space and bandwidth with your hosting provider to keep and serve the images that were previously on photobucket? 2. Can you pay whatever photobucket is charging to allow the images and not have to change the site? 3. If question 2 is no, are you willing to use another free hosting site without knowing the reliability of it such as https://vgy.me/ ? Once you figure out which option is right for the site it's relatively easy to implement the solution. cd.
