RIP! BC Mourns Five Snowmobilers, Eight Injured In Northeastern Avalanche

Five people have been killed in an avalanche in northeastern British Columbia.

The incident occurred Friday afternoon near the town of McBride, which is located near the Alberta border, and about 500 km west of Edmonton.

The BC Coroners’ Service said the very large avalanche happened in an area where a group of people were snowmobiling.

Avalanche Canada said in a statement posted on its website Friday that it has received a report of “what appears to be a very large, significant event near McBride.”

“We do know that it was human triggered,” said the statement.

Changing weather conditions “may have produced stresses in the snowpack capable of producing large avalanches,” the statement went on. “Please be cautious this weekend.”

Oops! Kanye West New Album Not That Great

A few days ago, Kanye said his new album Waves formerly known as Swish will be the 'greatest album of all time. Erm, insiders aren't so sure...

From Page Six

Our source, who has heard tracks from “Waves,” tells us West shouldn’t be so cocky: “It’s not the greatest album ever made. The people he’s getting feedback from are not the same as when he’d go to Jay Z to get feedback. Now, it’s from Kris Jenner. The stuff he’s done lately is dumbed down because of the Kardashians, but he’s still brilliant"

A Blessing In Disguise: Low Dollar Draws Tourists To Canada

 Giuseppe Valiante | The Canadian Press
 From British Columbia to Montreal, the low Canadian dollar is proving a boon to the tourism sector.
Dragged down by cheap oil and an international slump in commodity prices, the dollar is trading at around 70 cents against the greenback and enticing Americans to travel north of the border.

"We're getting more reservations at the last minute from Americans planning trips for the weekend," says Eve Pare, head of the Hotel Association of Greater Montreal.

Montreal-area hotels in December made more than $40 million, up more than nine per cent from a year earlier, Pare noted.

The city's tourism bureau said last summer's season — between June and August — saw a 10 per cent increase year over year in the number of American tourists crossing the border into Quebec.
For Katie, 20, a McGill University student from New York State, the low Canadian dollar means her tuition is "basically nothing."

Canada's highest income earners face the prospect of higher taxes under a new Liberal majority government, but those in the middle can expect a break.

Keith MacIntyre, a tax specialist at accounting and consulting firm Grant Thornton, says people in the middle tax brackets could see a reduction in the federal income tax they'll be required to pay if Justin Trudeau's promises are put in place.

"Certainly people in those brackets will be looking forward to that in terms of additional cash flow," MacIntyre said from Halifax.

Aye or Nah! US author writes scathing article on 15 reasons why real men shouldn't date single mothers


An American author named Shawn James recently wrote a controversial essay titled 'Why Real Men Avoid Single Mothers' - detailing 15 reasons why men should not date single mothers. It's got people talking. Is he hurt by a single mother or is on pint with his write-up?

1. Never Available. A single Mother’s schedule is never open. Single mothers are the kind of women to always cancel dates at the last minute. Something always gets in the way of a man spending time with her. It’s hard to have a relationship with her because she’s never there.
2. YOU are NOT a priority. Usually in a relationship the man winds up DEAD LAST. Behind, her kids, her job, the car, the kitchen sink, the stopped up toilet. Even the dog gets more attention and affection than a man involved with a single mother. Any man who gets involved with a single mother winds up a fifth stringer in a relationship. And he rarely ever gets called up to play.

3. Thinks the world revolves around HER and ONLY HER. A single mother is one of the biggest narcissists on the dating scene. She often thinks that a man has to drop everything in his life to be part of hers and her kids.

100 Up: Twitter to expand tweets from 140 characters to 10,000

Image result for twitter image Twitter's most beloved features is set to change. The company is planning to extend its 140-character limit to as many as 10,000, according to a person familiar with the matter. Twitter’s fans were quick to complain that such a change, expected to be announced by the end of March, would spoil the brevity and speed of the real-time service.
The character limit that forces users to pen snappy tweets could give way to the longer essays found on Facebook. It could transform Twitter into more of a public blogging platform rather than one that is succinct and well-suited to quips and breaking news headlines.

This person said, however, that Twitter Inc. is aiming to retain the look and feel of the user timeline. For tweets that are longer than 140 characters, users will have to click and expand to see the rest of the text. As users write beyond the 140-character limit, Twitter will signal to them that they have crossed the threshold as a way to encourage brevity.
