The Maple, https://www.readthemaple.com, is launching a new podcast, Expats & Allies, examining the history of how Nazi war criminals and fascist collaborators found refuge in North America after the end of the Second World War.

Inspired by the Canadian Parliamentary scandal about a Nazi veteran who served in the Ukraine's Galicia division during WWII and was invited to Parliament.

Great reporting from Justin Ling today. He is in Kyiv, Ukraine, right now, reporting on the war and Ukraine's ability to sustain its defence. The dispatch is worth the time it will take you to read it.

Sunrise in Ontario. A wintry morning after 18 °C temperatures just a few days ago. Climate change is making our weather very unstable, and it was unstable enough 30 years ago.

I'm seeing a lot of "Maybe it's time to move" replies in my feed.

If you're serious, here's what it took to move to Canada/get permanent residency:

I'll write a 3rd follow-up once we're there. These 2 posts seemed to have helped a lot of people, so I hope they help you too.

It's not easy, it's complicated, but even at our age, we achieved our goal.

ADDED: Please read before commenting. This keeps happening.

We have had this girl for four years now! We picked Maggie up at the shelter just before the shut down. She was 15 lbs overweight, stand offish, and depressed.

It was so much fun to watch her over the first year as she got healthier in body and mind. The more weight she lost, the more she played. The more she played, the more she bonded with us.

The first picture (where she's facing the camera) was her first night with us. The rest are over the past 3 years.

A brown poodle whose face and body is covered in snow looks up at the camera. Her back feet stand in the snow, and her front feet stand on the sidewalk.
A brown poodle is running toward the camera, her pink tongue visible. A black poodle runs behind her.
A brown poodle lays on her side on a round, tan dog bed. Her four feet are all curled up together as she sleeps.

@thepoliticalcat @justyourluck Droplets are not the problem, aerosols are. Front deprive yourself and you cats from contact unnecessarily.

I’ve heard it’s possible for cats and dogs to acquire SARS-CoV-2, but I’m not aware of the results of related research, or what specific effects it might have on them.

@thepoliticalcat same here. We take precautions all the time. We’re no-vids.

Happy Pi Day!

"The Greek letter appears on p. 243 [of William Jones's 1706 work Synopsis Palmariorum Matheseo] in the phrase "½ Periphery (π)", calculated for a circle with radius one."

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Pi

"Why that letter? It’s the first Greek letter in the words “periphery” and “perimeter,” and pi is the ratio of a circle’s periphery — or circumference — to its diameter."

    so, what am getting from Canadians on Mastodon is that Stephen Harper went from Prime Minister to Bond Villain. or was he a Bond villain that got to be Prime Minister?
