    ottawa.ctvnews.ca/Ottawa LRT train had already derailed before reaching station, but kept going - TSB [damage could take weeks to repair]:

    An oldie but goodie (I forget if it touches at all on history of fishy LRT wheeling, dealings and whitewashing by liberal mayor Watson and his city council lackeys - SNC Lavalin won a fishy process that was rushed, to get LRT phase 2, for example {next link posted after this one touches on a lot of fishy stuff besides that}]:

    How much more is Ottawa's LRT costing taxpayers?

    nypost.com/2021/09/22/Biden admits botching AUKUS-Pact rollout after call with France:

    theguardian.com/world/2021/sep/21/US has no closer ally than Australia says Biden, after AUKUS-pact [so I guess that makes Canada chopped liver, unless Biden was having another senior's moment and/or Trudeau is seen as too close to China's @$$]:
