@bclindner 🙇 I’ve lived here nearly five years and finally walked across one of the bridges yesterday

@ashfurrow If I applied that to my hate of Microsoft I would slip into hyperspace. :)

@ashfurrow I was obsessed with that movie as a kid. I love the Power Glove marketing.

@ashfurrow The NDP, to quote another Canadian, is not very evenly distributed. Although there is a candidate in my riding, I haven't seen any evidence of campaigning (e.g. no lawn signs). Supposedly it's a 3 way race between the Trudeaus, the Harpers, and the Greens. So, bad news that think the greens are actually re-incarnated Progressive Conservatives, and good news for those that think that's not such a bad thing.

@bremner I've heard that the NDP has been pretty bad at campaigning :\

@ashfurrow Finally someone who gets that voting for a party outside the bi-party BS that first past the post causes is the best way to cause a real change.

Though removing FPTP for a true rep by pop system would be ideal.

Thoughts @trickster , since you probably know more about this than I do?

@ashfurrow we're supposed to be using neighbour here?
I've always used neighbor, as have everyone else around me...
Authorize part is correct tho.

@toast gosh I dunno, maybe it’s regional? New Brunswick always used neighbour. What about “honour”? Do you keep the u?

@ashfurrow no, we don't keep the u here, it's honor!
I only know about Montreal (and a very slight bit about BC and Ontario), so it very well might be regional.

@toast language is so tricky. A lot of spelling tests growing up had multiple correct answers 😅

@toast @ashfurrow Yeah, neighbour, colour etc. Our computers are usually set up to US spelling, which kinda makes spell checking encourage us to use US spelling.

@Lofenyy @toast even as I live in the states, I make sure to set my computer's locale to en-CA. taking meeting notes at work? they're littered with "extra" u's. commit messages. changelog entries. everything.

@ashfurrow @toast I have it set yo the US' because I'm lazy, but I'll switch it when I get home!

@ashfurrow L'orthographie de français, est-ce que c'est mieux stabilisée ou non ?

@dasyatidprime je ne sais pas, mais les deux langues sont tellement mixed up dans Canada, donc c’est impossible to say for sure.

@vollink I saw that this morning, and was like, "uh, FUCK, mmm"
