Ban mean words
One of the greatest

State of Canada

It was just after noon last Saturday and the retired letter carrier had just been at the Streetsville Beer Store to return a month’s worth of empties when a police car flashed him to stop.

“I haven’t been pulled over for 40 or 50 years,” explains Art Lightowler. “I was shaking.” [...]

“He thought I had dropped off an excessive amount of bottles at The Beer Store,” Lightowler explains.

Murders by thugs with guns is rising in Ontario, opioid-related deaths are increasing in British Columbia, and confirmed members of ISIS are roaming free in Canada. Yet, police have the luxury of time to question and harass a law-abiding man who returned "too many" bottles at a store.

“I felt violated,” says Lightowler. “What do we have now, a police state?”

Some people learn the hard way.
