A fox was found sleeping on an Ottawa city bus on Wednesday morning, and a photograph of the napping animal is making a big splash online.

Cord Jefferson: Beware a bro who knows what he ‘deserves’: the friendzone is only purgatory if women’s decisions are less valid
What a great read. I’ve been thinking a lot about men’s insane expectations and entitlements lately - glad there are some great allies that check themselves on it.
The Mata Mata Turtle
Found mostly in South America. Its shell resembles bark, and its head resembles fallen leaves, making it an expert at camouflage. It is also an expert at looking like my nightmares.
A #FBF to that time we kept photobombing Jack and Olivia while they danced at #vancon2011 - in honor of #JackLayton’s birthday today. It’s been a crazy 3 years but I’m so proud of my colleagues and allies for fighting on. We miss you Jack! (at Vancouver Convention Centre)
#tbt to exactly 3 years with adolescent Guinny at our old place in #OakBay. He’s being a #cuddlebunny like this tonight which makes me forget about all the things he destroys. #catsofinstagram #bengal #catlove

“Any woman who chooses to behave like a full human being should be warned that the armies of the status quo will treat her as something of a dirty joke … She will need her sisterhood.”

If you’ve been watching this summer’s Big Brother US, you’ve probably seen just how creepy Caleb is being towards Amber. You’ve probably also seen Amber turn him and him completely ignoring how she feels or thinks
There has been such a negative response to this that her brother-in-law went on her Twitter to set shit straight. (He also wrote an article about the situation.)
Such a creep.
“Stop sending expired food”….”fried chicken 64.99”
IQALUIT, Nunavut — A head of cabbage for $20. Fifteen bucks for a small bag of apples.
A case of ginger ale: $82.
Fed up and frustrated by sky-high food prices and concerned over widespread hunger in their communities, thousands of Inuit have spent weeks posting pictures and price tags from their local grocery stores to a Facebook site called Feed My Family.
WHAT IN THE FUCK? This shit is not okay.

Reblogging for the extra articles.
Also… I might show up to this protest and support them.
Pay attention to this stuff, please, followers who haven’t heard about this! This kind of thing is completely erased in news media.
This is really fucking important.
This is why I don’t respect anyone who blindly supports the anti-sealing protestors. Because for a lot of people, it’s the only affordable option.
It’s not just Iqaluit. In Nain, Labrador this problem has been going on for ages and nobody does anything about it. $47 for a ham and $17 for a block of cheese. In Rigolet, Labrador, a loaf of bread costs $7. Here’s another picture of an Iqaluit food price changing before your very eyes.
The NNCP is starving people, reducing their food choices, and keeping people on EI poor. This is so, so wrong.
How can we help? I joined the group and checked out the website, but I didn’t see anything that can be actively done (other than raising awareness, which, of course, is great).
Excellent question! If you read through the group (which is here, for anyone who missed it), there are people talking about some ways to help.
- Look at the latest news on the Feeding My Family website to see what the priorities are and how you might be able to help.
- If you’re Canadian, call your local MP and ask to discuss this issue and express your concern.
- Look up ways to support putting pressure onto airlines to charge fair rates (a $1000 plane ticket should be from one coast to the other, not a few hundred miles).
- Research and learn what you can about food sustainability. For a start, how about learning square foot/metre (French intensive) gardening or container gardening and starting to practice it yourself? Share these techniques with friends and family. Get good at it so you can teach them to others who have poor food security in your own area.
- For the love of God, stop signing “anti-sealing”/”anti-hunting” petitions and supporting Greenpeace’s actions without understanding the complicated, nuanced situation in the North.
- Watch the FB group, because people there mention direct donations and ways to help the organizations actually on the ground there.
- For example, one person is starting up a donation project/fundraiser.
- Look at what organizations like FoodShare are doing and support them.
There is so much to be done. Sharing news articles and stories, lists of resources, donation and fundraising pages, and knowledge about food security is critical, but there’s a lot more work of all sorts.
