Today will be sunny with the wind becoming southeast 30 km/h early this afternoon. A high of 19 (66) id forecast. Tonight will bring clouds with a 30% chance of showers. There is a risk of a thunderstorm. The wind will be SE at 40 km/h gusting to 60 becoming south 20 this evening. An overnight low of 9 (48f) is expected.
I went to a community consultive group meeting last night. We're a group of citizen who meet with the RCMP to discuss the local crime situation and ways of lowering the crime rate. It was an informative evening with a presentation by the chair of the Manitoba Crimestoppers program and a briefing by the inpector in charge of the Portage detachment.

Canadian Oil Shortage

There are a lot of folks who can't understand how we came to have an oil shortage here in Canada. Well, there's a very simple answer......
Nobody bothered to check the oil. We just didn't know we were getting low.

The reason for that is purely geographical. All our oil is in Alberta.

All our dipsticks are in Ottawa.
