Chapters You Suck
Time to get with the times

Am I the only one to find it absurd in this day and age that a bricks and mortar retail store with a website you can purchase items from won't price match from website to store? Yes, I'm talking to you Chapters/Indigo/Coles. How is it you can sell a $42 book on your website for $26? And don't give me that bull about the website being separate or different - other retailers can do it, so I know you can as well.

I'm sure this rant is wasted here but I'll be leaving a location review for sure as well.

I prefer Audrey's in Edmonton. You don't get the same stunning deals, but you do get awesome customer service from staff who know about and care about books and reading, and finding you the right thing and something you'll enjoy.

OH! And their membership program doesn't require you to carry a damn card around. They keep it in their computer. FANCY THAT!

1080p Debate an Unwinnable War
It's Sega does what Nintendon't

Well said:
"There's going to be games that look better on one or the other. There's going to be exclusives that look better, for whatever reason. And we never set out to engage in the tech war. I feel like that's a war that no one actually wins."
Producer Drew McCoy says getting worked up over specs is silly because, "that's a war that no one actually wins."

Alberta Tories Approve Proposal to Change Definition of Marriage
Legislative amendments to change province's definition of marriage to include same-sex unions

Great news! Amendments to the Vital Stats Act will be discussed as well to make it easier for transgender Albertans to remove or change their gender on birth certificates.
The Alberta Tories have approved a proposal to change the province's definition of marriage to include same-sex unions.

Maybe they're so embarrassed by the Redford shenanigans being discovered that they've been momentarily disoriented. :)

Nice editorial. Hopefully it doesn't fall on deaf ears.
 
This is the editorial in this week`s edition of the Manotick News.  Manotick is in Pierre Poilievre`s riding, and Pierre often has a guest column in this newspaper. They`ve come down pretty hard on him.

I posted this to twitter, and in about an hour it has become my most retweeted post ever.

Awesome.
 
Ever burned a DVD to your computer? Got a spare $10,000 kicking around? No? Then you'd better pay attention to the upcoming TPP negotiations. LIKE and SHARE to keep that cool 10 grand in your pocket.

Go Home Spring, You're Drunk
5-15cm snow by this afternoon, +10C tomorrow

Good lord, I wish spring would get it's act together already!

The potential for heavy snowfall in Edmonton and central Alberta has led Environment Canada to issue a special weather statement. Snow will intensify Thursday evening and overnight, with five to 10 centimetres expected for most of central Alberta by Friday afternoon.

Baldur's Gate Enhanced Edition

Great deal for a 60+ hour main quest game - not to mention a blast from the past!

Unlike the desktop, where some people called it the "mouse destroyer" you generally don't have to worry about ruining your touch screen by touching it too much.

Orange is the New Black: Season 2 Trailer
Season 2 drops June 6 on Netflix

Can't wait - looks like Season 2 will be just as good as Season 1!
House of Cards may be the hottest Netflix exclusive, but at least during one point last summer, All Things D reported that Orange is the New Black was actually the most popular. Whether that's...

A bit of a wait to get in at dinner, but to be expected given the namesake. Beer selection is outstanding and they offer tastings if your unsure - the waitress even offered to replace an entire beer because I saw did tasted a bit different (in a good way though). The food is OUTSTANDING. I had the Farm Burger (duck bacon and egg) and it was cooked perfectly and tasted great. The Parmesan fries are also highly recommended. Price was reasonable as well. Would definitely eat here again.

Great food, service and price. For being on the strip, the price were affordable. Had the BBQ Nachos - have to say they just might have been the best Nachos I've had. Who ever thought of baked beans and pulled pork on Nachos? Would definitely recommend and come back again.

Great little ski hill in the middle of town. First time skiing for my son and the instructors were great and patient.

Great dining experience, food was excellent. Had the Pad Thai, kids had the Shaken Beef and Mango chicken. All three dishes were outstanding.

An absolute treat to dine here. It is a tad on the expensive side, but you can easily get your money's worth if you're a meat lover. Great salad bar, wide selection of meat and the kids loved it.
