Ah. Another session of Parliament and another tome of an omnibus bill.
Despite whines and screeches to the contrary, there is lots of new stuff in this 450 page monstrosity!

I’m writing this sitting in a cold rink watching my daughter at skating lessons. She loves it!
Now only if she would spend a little less time chatting with her friend and more time listening to the instructor.
