transgender toilet issue

I happened upon one of these signs in a Vancouver swimming pool lobby.


It looked exactly like a Starbucks one person washroom.

No need for the text. Better would be this sign.


Anyone should be able to go to the toilet any time. This kind of washroom is the solution.

The transgender toilet issue is STUPID. People passionate about this debate should get a life. Don’t you have higher priorities?

Nike – #‎MaxYourDays‬

Solstice is here, and you know what that means — mother nature is open late and looking to party. So go forth and get filthy, breathe heavy, and for the love of all that’s holy, squeeze the day till it pushes back. Max your days.

Thanks Bobby.

Elevation Place in Canmore

Kelly Mock gave me a tour. He’s got a yearly family membership. Fantastic.

Elevation Place opened in April of 2013 as Canmore’s new recreation facility. Construction of the facility began in 2012 to replace the Canmore Recreation Centre (the community’s old facility). The facility offers an 8-lane 25m lap pool, a world class climbing wall developed by Walltopia, two cardio rooms, a strength room, and a host of fitness programs. Elevation Place also houses the community’s library and a local art gallery.
