Ok. It's not like me to vent, but I can't contain my rage.
I've been reading that damned paper for 20-odd years; for as long as I could read, in fact. And although I currently receive a few different papers in my mailbox every morning in order to get a good aggregate of the actual news, I'm cancelling my subscription to The Province as of this morning, due entirely to continued assault on my motorist's sensibilities by this piece of crap writer. His latest work? The explanation of how it's impossible not to run red lights, even going so far as to say; "Pedal to the metal, and blast the air horn is the safest way to go."
Having watched truck after truck after truck blow through red lights because their drivers were A) doing at least 80 in a 50, B) on the phone, and/or C) ignoring the "prepare to stop when flashing" signs we have on the highways out here, to see The Province publish an article not only excusing such behaviour but condoning it is too much to bear. I'm sure I'm not the only one that's sat at a light with my earplugs in, watched my light turn green, and then seen 20 tons of 16-wheeled fury blow through the intersection at Mach 2 at precisely the same moment as I'd have been traversing it if I hadn't double checked it was clear.
Rant off, subscription cancelled, letter sent. Just thought you guys might like to see this rare glimpse into the "logic" that's guaranteed to land a motorcyclist in the morgue at some point in the future.
