  1. Re: Charles Daily Park Did that land owner ever get fined? Because the city/region just went through and cut a ton of trees down between the lake and the east pond and how much the city/region just cut, that was way worse than anything that single land owner did to be able to access the water down there.
  2. A random beaver photo, I was going to take a shot of a beaver den, but the spot was too obvious as to the location, so settled on a random internet shot. Clearing the land won't drastically increase the value of the house, if you can afford that house, you can afford someone to do the work for you. It will give a very good visual of the land if you wanted to resell, and a solid visual on property size for people viewing the lot.
  3. Assuming this is one of the lots i am thinking of ... If I could afford it (the house/lot) I would pay that 5K without blinking an eye. Opening up the view and making it easier to get down to the water and enjoy your property ... why not. Also was any of the trees a danger of coming down onto the house? There is definitely more to this than what has been told though, and if it is a case of what is printed being the whole story, well then the Niagara Peninsula Conservation Authority acted in poor faith in my book. Plenty of houses have done things around Martindale pond that has drastically altered their backyards and no fines have been levied or made public. This is someone being upset at their neighbour or coworker guaranteed and pushing for things to happen. Also what purpose does this "forest" serve ... deer would not be living there or travelling through the area. Maybe some raccoons and skunks, but we have enough of those throughout the area to begin with. Clearing the area out might make it less receptive to the local coyote population that is insanely high in that area. But then again ... they can also utilize google maps ... more levels of government are to spy on their population, or in their terms, to ensure that no pools/renovations are being done without the proper permit. I am curious as to what the NPCA plans to do with the regulars who are chopping back trees on a daily basis. As cute as these national symbols of Canada are ... they are doing far more harm to the area as a whole than one land owner. Was out for a walk today and there are dens with plenty of sticks around them, one is coming close to cutting completely across the stream, and at that point it will raise the waters in that little stream.
  4. They could have pulled it out of the marina as well where it would be easy enough to dive down for some food.
  5. Option #1 - Rent a ozone-ator ... is supposed to remove all odours and such xOption #2 - Get a hockey bag de-stinker ... all I know is they supposedly take the stench of hockey out of equipment and bags. Never used one. Option #3 - Some of the dollar stores sell things like these
  6. Years ago someone stole a wallet and car keys from a buddy's gym bag ... in the end he got his ID back and was able to put a hold on his credit cards, so all he suffered was inconveniences. Car keys were left in the car after nothing of value was found. Eventually the cops showed up and someone tossed the question out on "What if we walked into the locker room and caught him in the act" ... the answer was simple ... "it all depends on who is responding, but in my book, whatever you boys decided to do, I might have to stop and get a coffee if you guys caught him, you would do more to him than we are even allowed to think about". I think that sums up the lack of teeth that exist as a whole, and of course if it was a different cop answering that question the answer would be "you hit him you are being charged with assault". This will be an interesting case to monitor and see how it does going through the courts from a "protecting your home perspective". https://www.cbc.ca/news/canada/calgary/eddie-maurice-rural-homeowner-shooting-trespasser-lawsuit-intruder-watson-1.5295370
  7. Going to disagree on the vehicles travelling faster and headlights Smerch. The brighter headlights are a requirement if you are outside of city limits, as someone who has had close calls with deer, caribou, coyotes, and such ... my vehicle would have become a write off at least once if it was not for upgrading the headlights. At the end of the day the "brighter headlights" are often very poorly aligned and not properly set for illuminating the roads as opposed to someones backseat. Vehicles aren't travelling faster nowadays ... just there are more idiots on the roads and people who truly don't give a **** if they hit you or not. As much as they upped the QEW to 110, find a time where you can actually go 110 plus outside of midnight.
  8. Since you like playing in the kitchen ... ditch the sriracha and make your own hot sauce, relatively easy to go and fairly inexpensive if you can control yourself when buying the peppers. In the freezer I have a pineapple mango ghost pepper one ... only down fall is it is too thick for most squirt bottles compared to a proper sauce. I think the cost for about 2 litres of sauce was around $20 and that was mostly peppers because I could not control myself.
  9. I really hope they don't make it much further. The reading I have done on them has ZERO positive impact on the environment so it is a definite scary potential combined with how aggressive they can become. But I am sure some animals rights group will stand up for them.
  10. Firstly I did vote. Secondly I am not happy with the results. The unfortunate thing is how any political debates has turned into name calling and slinging mud. Because of that it is so hard to find proper information on the parties. I saw tons of articles pushed through on Facebook from different friends supporting one party, half of them were from sites that have no credibility and made my preferred party seem to enjoy eating the hearts of newborn babies while making their candidate seem like they sh!# rainbows. Unfortunately there is no reporting that is done without a political party spin/push so to read anything unbiased is impossible.
  11. Just a poll on curiosity, no need to actually comment since this current election has such a strong and divided opinion out there.
  12. No it isn't Thundermist ... they manufactured the nasty girl/boy series of spoons.
  13. Question ... I can't find any information on Lure King, saw something that is was a Niagara-ish company ... Anyone have any information? Is the company still in business?
  14. End of day this is bullshit. If it passes it will solely be so someone can take a large bonus with "cost savings". It makes sense since plenty of "garbage" can be put into recycling, but at the same time, how much of the stuff that goes into recycling winds up going to the dump since it can't be recycled? One item I saw was the potential that all garbage needs to go into clear bags ... which is kind of a public shaming. At the same time, the homeless population goes through my subdivision looking for cans/bottles. This would be an invite into them opening garbage bags up. An article I read on this tended to indicate recycling and organics would still be weekly.
