The Shirtless Jogger What is Your Take?

By now you have heard about the Shirtless Jogger confronting Mayor Ford on Canada Day.

Brother Doug Ford has come out to raise questions about not only the jogger's mental state, but whether or not he should continue teaching.

Doug Ford, is saying the Shirtless Jogger (who is a teacher) was “indoctrinating” his pupils.

Ford told reporters at city hall Wednesday that Killoran was a “bad apple” among Ontario teachers. He also quoted an alleged student of Killoran’s who called into Newstalk 1010 Tuesday night who said “all [Killoran] did was trash Rob Ford.”

“When you have a teacher, teaching his kids and indoctrinating his kids, in my opinion, about hatred towards one person in politics, something is wrong there,” Ford told reporters.

#Cascadia Now? An Independence Movement.

#Cascadia Now?

There is a separatist movement building slowly in the Pacific Northwest. Its speed reflects the pace of the people outside of its metropolitan centers.  It is not your typical movement based on the right and left spectrum, nor is it necessarily about protecting a certain culture. More so, it is about creating one, building off the foundation of what already goes on in the westernmost bioregion. It is about decentralizing two governments that seem to disregard what the population wants on the West Coast. The movement calls for a new sovereign state: Cascadia.
