This is crap! If Unison Energy's logic were were to be applied consistently, a single person, in a tiny home would pay the same electricity price as a masivie multi-family dwelling.
Electricity isn't suppose to be a flat tax, it is suppose to be a commodity and if you don't use it, you shouldn't have to pay for someone else's use of it.
Customers who use a combination of solar energy and the electricity grid now face a higher fees structure.

I like this for two reasons:
#1. I like the new Goals feature Google is offering.
#2. I like that they inferred that George was gay, and that was perfectly normal for the commercial.

In my day, there was solid, liquid and gas. You fancy kids with your plasmas, Bose–Einstein condensates, superfluids, supersolids, and now quantum spin liquids...Kindergarten just keeps getting harder and harder!

We loved the amount of selection that this Roots store had available, and would have loved to have browsed the selection looking for some of the great Roots merchandise. But alas, we were virtually attacked by what I can only assume were commissioned sales people, because it was like they were buzzing flies, and we were the rotting carrion they were hoping to feast on. I couldn't touch an article of clothing without one of the staff member jumping in between me and the clothing shouting that they could find a size for me. My wife tried to look at a hoodie and a staff member jumped in between me and her offering to hold the hanger while she tried on the clothes. Added to this unpleasant situation was the fact that there was an irate and screaming customer trying to return an article of clothing that was no doubt force-fed to her in the past, and now she was suffering from buyers remorse. By-the-way...I am not being overly dramatic for effect. The staff at this store would follow you around virtually one step behind you, offering unwanted input and advice and would not leave you alone! Hey Roots: Want to sell some clothing? Let people browse your merchandise without being accosted. By comparison, the Roots store in Victoria was a dream. Staff greeted you warmly, and offered their services if needed. I only wish that store had the selection that the one on Robson had.

We've been using Zaminka for the last four years, whenever we need to go back to Canada for a visit. The staff there are friendly, professional, and ALWAYS take excellent care of our two dogs. Whenever we go to pick up our dogs after the trip, they always look wonderful and healthy, as the staff will ask if we would like them bathed and groomed on pick-up. We're often told of some of our dog's various antics while at the Dog Motel which says to us that the staff take their jobs seriously, and they truly care about them. We will continue to use Zaminka for as long as they show such excellent care and concern for our pets.
