Not a good add to have at the top of page from Classic auto body, considering the headline.

Alcohol and speed… Darwin took care of them.

Good point doneright.

It’s a rolling add block.. Random adds show up at certain intervals.. Has nothing to do,with the headline.

So sad! Just becoming a common occurrence amongst young people.

Regardless of what ever names Government decide to change, It will always be Queen Charlotte Islands, NWT and Fort George park. I couldn’t care less of what anyone else wants to call them.

For some reason, I posted this to the wrong story, I apologize!

Hey pg101,you’re rude and stupid.

Dont you just people like PG101, the holier than thou crowd.. Have always followed the law to a “T” never sped in his/her life. Never broken any driving laws.. Had never touched alcohol before the legal age.. of course never smoked anything… Not a law broken..

Ah to be perfect and still so ignorant of reality.. interesting world to live in..

PVal – PG101’s delivery leave’s something to be desired, but I have to admit, I’ve had my doors blown off by some drunk dumb ass in a truck and secretly hoped he hits the ditch so that he only kills himself and not some innocent person later on. But you’re absolutely correct, many of us self righteous today, were the dumb ass’s of yesterday – myself no exception.

There’s a fair amount of drinking and driving in rural areas. In the spring my friend and his kids managed to find over 4000 beer cans – they have the bottle depot receipt to prove it – on a 10 k section of chief lake road – how did they get there? Drinking and driving – on winter roads no less. In 10 years, I’ve seen one counter attack roadblock out there.
