Google Canadian Alphabet in English and French

Happy Canada Day tomorrow!

As a tribute to all things Canadian, I present to you the Google Canadian Alphabet.  At, I typed the first letter of every letter of the alphabet in the search box.  Google comes up with suggested topics beginning with each first letter I type.  For example, when I typed 'a', the first suggested search topic was Air Canada.

Here is the Google Canadian Alphabet:

Note: I have adjusted the words for proper capitalization and spacing.

In English:

Air Canada
Best Buy Canada
Canadian Tire
Job Bank
Lotto 6/49
RBC Online Banking
TD Canada Trust
Urban Dictionary
VIA Rail
Weather Network
XS Cargo

En français:

Best Buy
Canada 411
Emploi Québec
Google map
Jean Coutu
Orléans Express
Poste Canada
Québec Loisirs

Thankfully, we had the police to stop those violent black people

Yes, you read that right.  The police would not allow peaceful protesters to legally protest anywhere near the fence because there could have been violent black people within their midst.

On Saturday afternoon, black people were hiding among peaceful marchers who were walking west along Queen Street.  As the peaceful protesters went north along Spadina, the black people got together and headed back east along Queen Street.  They started vandalizing businesses such as Starbucks and banks.  Eventually, the black people went north on Yonge Street, and vandalized more stores.  Some of those violent black people were able to destroy a few police vehicles.  The Eaton Centre had closed its doors because of the fear that black people would destroy property inside the shopping centre.

There were very few people enjoying the downtown on Saturday and Sunday.  Perhaps they feared the black people.  Maybe it was because of riot cops in black.  Whatever the case, let us be thankful that our finest police force in Toronto and the visiting forces across the country were able to keep us safe from all those criminal black people.  Because of those black people, the police had to curtail the freedom of expression, the freedom of movement, and the right to protest peacefully from every Canadian.

I don't know why the police had to demand the identity of people getting too close to the security fence.  It should have been easy for the police to spot violent black people from others.  Because of a few black people, the police had to treat all Canadians like criminals instead of citizens.

"[The police] were just doing their job": Carlton from Fresh Prince of Bel-Air

If this guy in Toronto had only brought a map, he wouldn't have been arrested.  Sarcastically writing, he should have cooperated with the police and given his ID.

"Papers, bitte!" (bit-tuh)

Seriously, who need this s---?

Lorrie Goldstein from the Toronto Sun:

How absurd that today, the Group of 20 (G20), whose forerunner was the Group of 8 (G8), meaning the world’s leading industrialized DEMOCRACIES, inevitably turns large portions of any city unlucky enough to host it into an armed camp, the same as you’d find in any Third World, tinpot dictatorship run by a psychotic military general.

Wow!  Our Stephen Harper is a psychotic military general running a Third World, tinpot dictatorship!

Even the Ontario Lottery and Gam(bl)ing Corporation prize office is closing early for the G20

From the OLG:

Please be advised that you may experience delays when travelling to the Prize Centre between June 21 and 25, 2010, due to the G20 economic summit being held in Toronto. Information on affected routes is available at Please see our How to Claim Prizes section for additional prize claim options.

Please also be advised that the Prize Centre will be closing at 1 p.m. on Friday, June 25, 2010, due to anticipated traffic delays and demonstrations associated with the G20 economic summit. The Prize Centre will reopen at 9 a.m. on Monday, June 28, 2010; however, there may be a longer than anticipated wait due to the previous week's closures and traffic delays.

Let's hope that no one has a 2009 winning ticket that expires on June 25.
