Reporters Without Borders just came out with their 2017 press freedom index.  Canada was ranked 22nd in the world.  Pretty far down the list.  Why so low?

With all the “good news” emanating out of Marina Park this week, I thought I would take a look at some of the concrete infrastructure built six or seven years ago. I did look at asphalt in a previous report. Basically, I am looking at cracking. Note: these are by no means all of the […]
