Heartless thief steals teenager’s wheelchair. Theft is theft, no? What if the guy needed for his Mom all of a sudden? Calling it “heartless” is moral relativism. Just saying.
City of Vancouver considers removing downtown viaducts, increasing park space. Nearby residents were busy preparing to complain about off-leash dogs, basketball court users, and more “bike activity”.
