  1. The person most acknowledged as the Zodiac Killer is Arthur Leigh Allen. The Movie Zodiac starring Glyllenhal was based a book by Robert Graysmith who identified the Zodiac Killer as Arthur Leigh Allen. The police considered Leigh as as prime suspect but the biggest problem was the DNA from the stamps attached to the letters sent by the Zodiac Killer did not match Leigh's. So the police cannot confirm Leigh 100% as the Zodiac killer. This guy, Poste, is just another theory that means squat unless the DNA matches. The case remains open unless this so called new suspect is confirm by the authorities as the actual Zodiac Killer.
  2. I predict the Liberals to be re-elected with a minority or possibility a majority because of several reasons, The first and most important reason is regional disparities in Canada, namely Central Canada. Ontario and Quebec have almost 60% of the seats in Canada, combined 199 seats out of 338. The polls show a virtual tie for the CONS/LIBS nationally but the Liberals have a big lead in Ontario and Quebec. One poll show the LIBS have a 20 point lead in GTA (Greater Toronto Area). That mean if the LIBS get 60% of the seats in Central Canada that means 120 seats. Add the Maritimes where the Libs lead, and some in BC and elsewhere. That is 150 seats, enough for a minority. The other reason is vote splitting. Progressives will hold their noses to vote for Trudeau, rather than let the Tories get in. Why? Simple. The LIBS have reverted to their fear campaign by using wedge issues of gun control and abortion. It worked in the past and may work again. It is not that Conservatives don't have a chance to get a minority win. The problem is they peaked too soon. Their momentum of the early days for the CONS have dissipated and the LIBS have caught up. Paradoxically, vote splitting may help the Conservatives if the left wing is split between the LIBS and NDP. The LIBS are quite aware of this so they are telling progressives to vote for them instead of the NDP to keep the CONS out.
  3. Looking at that list, all of those places do not need a vaccine passport, so of course they don't need secondary ID. Those that do need a vaccine passport, require additional ID.
  4. All places that require vaccine passports also required photo ID. Those are the rules as mandated by the BC government. Whether businesses enforced it is another matter.
  5. You need to show one piece of photo ID in addition to the vaccine passport. So how could people share same passport if name and photo don't match.
  6. Jean-Paul Belmondo, the battered face of French New Wave cinema, dies aged 88 - CNN Style he legendary French actor Jean-Paul Belmondo has died aged 88, his lawyer, Michel Godest, said on Monday. The cause of his death was not disclosed. The son of French sculptor Paul Belmondo and painter Sarah Rainaud-Richard, Belmondo was born into an artistic family in Neuilly-sur-Seine in 1933, Reuters reports. He was a passionate boxer as a child, but eventually turned to acting, and was enrolled in the Paris Conservatory in 1952 after three attempts, according to Reuters. Despite his initial struggle, Belmondo went on to star in a series of major hits, including "The Professional," "Ace of Aces" and "Le Magnifique". But he was best known for his breakthrough performance as the dangerous yet romantic criminal Michel in the 1960 film "Breathless," where he worked with film director Jean-Luc Godard and starred alongside American actress Jean Seberg. Belmondo soon became a vanguard of "La Nouvelle Vague" or New Wave -- a French cinematic movement in the 1950s and 60s, where practitioners used experimental narrative and stylistic techniques to revolutionize the big screen. The movement influenced the work of contemporary American directors including Francis Ford Coppola and Martin Scorsese. Many paid tribute to Belmondo following the news of his death.
  7. I wasn't disrespectful to the families. Perhaps I should have said shocking...
  8. If you are alive back then, what do you remember of 9/11? Because it occurred before 9 am EST, a lot of people not see it live on the West Coast. I remember waking up to see the replay of the events. It was amazing to see the planes hitting the Twin Towers. It seem so surreal.
  9. https://www.bu.edu/articles/2021/how-9-11-changed-the-world/ Saturday, September 11, 2021, marks the 20th anniversary of 9/11, the largest terrorist attack in history. On that Tuesday morning, 19 al-Qaeda terrorists hijacked four American commercial flights destined for the West Coast and intentionally crashed them. Two planes—American Airlines Flight 11 and United Airlines Flight 175—departed from Boston and Flight 11 struck New York City’s World Trade Center North Tower at 8:46 am and Flight 175 the South Tower at 9:03 am, leading to the collapse of both towers. A third plane, American Airlines Flight 77, leaving from Dulles International Airport in Virginia, crashed into the Pentagon at 9:37 am, and the final plane, United Airlines Flight 93, departing from Newark, N.J., crashed in a field in Shanksville, Pa., at 10:03 am., after passengers stormed the cockpit and tried to subdue the hijackers. In the space of less than 90 minutes on a late summer morning, the world changed. Nearly 3,000 people were killed that day and the United States soon found itself mired in what would become the longest war in its history, a war that cost an estimated $8 trillion. The events of 9/11 not only reshaped the global response to terrorism, but raised new and troubling questions about security, privacy, and treatment of prisoners. It reshaped US immigration policies and led to a surge in discrimination, racial profiling, and hate crimes.
  10. https://www.cbc.ca/news/politics/vancouver-liberal-homes-flipped-1.6158955 If there is a textbook example of hypocrisy, the Liberal candidate for Vancouver Granville. Taleeb Noormohamed, fits it perfectly. Trudeau intend to penalize people who flip houses within 12 months of purchase. So now we have this Liberal candidate in Vancouver Granville doing the same thing Trudeau is against. So, should Mr. Noormohamed win the Vancouver Granville riding, what does this say about the electorate? (a) Voters like Justin Trudeau/and/or the Liberals. (b) Voters dislike O'Toole/and/or the Conservatives. (c) Voters dislike Singh/and/or the NDP. (d) Voters are idiots. (e) All of the above.
  11. Like Mark David Chapman, the guy that killed John Lennon. I don't why that guy is still in jail 40 years when worst killers have been let go. He had no criminal convictions before his crime and has been a model citizen in the past 4 decades. Is he a threat to society when rapists and child sex molesters serve less time than him.
  12. https://www.reuters.com/world/us/convicted-rfk-assassin-sirhan-sirhan-granted-parole-2021-08-27/ Aug 27 (Reuters) - A California review board on Friday recommended that Sirhan Sirhan, the Palestinian refugee serving a life sentence for assassinating U.S. presidential candidate Robert F. Kennedy in 1968, be released from prison on parole. Sirhan, 77, has previously been denied parole 15 times. The latest decision by a Board of Parole Hearings panel is now subject to a 120-day review by the board's legal staff, during which the case may be referred to the full board for further evaluation before a final judgment is rendered. The California governor then has 30 days to reverse the board's action or let it stand. That process would most likely put Sirhan's fate in the hands incumbent Governor Gavin Newsom, a first-term Democrat, assuming he survives a recall election set for September. If the governor takes no action on a parole grant, the inmate is then scheduled for release. The Palestinian-born Sirhan was convicted of gunning down Kennedy, 42, in the kitchen pantry of the Ambassador Hotel in Los Angeles on June 5, 1968. The shooting occurred minutes after the U.S. senator from New York and former U.S. attorney general gave his victory speech after winning the California Democratic primary. Kennedy died the next day. Sirhan has said he had no recollection of the killing, although he has also said he fired at Kennedy because he was enraged by his support for Israel. Two members of the slain senator’s family, including his son, Robert F. Kennedy Jr., sent letters to the parole board in support of Sirhan's release, the Los Angeles Times reported.
  13. That is what Joe Biden alluded to in his address tonight. He said he did not trust the Taliban but had no choice but to co-operate with them because it benefits both of them. He also said ISIS-K is an enemy of Taliban.
