A long time ago, a baseball player remarked: "If I owned a ballclub, I'd hire a $5,000 coach and a $15,000 scout."

Guys always had a gripe with something. Not enough ice-time, wants to play with certain players, whatever.

Always been obvious he was a very talented player but has never sustained. Can't be bothered for 3 out of 4 games.

He deplores the physical side of the game big time. So what now? Look for another NHL contract? Swedish league?

November 11th, 2020. One out of four goals this year. ....................What a waste.

I liked Goldy and was sorry to see it not work out for him here but he didn't strike me as a complainer.

It's almost funny how former sports stars tend to invest badly. Destiny Bioscience is (was) a private company. So Messier is a hockey star turned venture capitalist? Probably taken in by a slick sales pitch, lol.

Just invest your money in public companies on the open market like a normal person Mark! Simples!

LOL everyone who tried to join the 'green rush' and invested in legal Canadian cannabis companies lost there shirts. Everyone except the CEOs of those companies that is. They raised millions and made out like bandits. Messier was just another 'mark.'

Shouldn’t this be a snippet of the footage from the security cam that covered the parking lot where Juice 1-Punches him?

At least there's a story;.. https://dailyhive.com/vancouver/bieksa- ... ov-canucks
Following the incident, Bieksa was justifiably worried about his future with the organization.

“So then Brian Burke finds out, who was the GM of Vancouver at the time, and I’m scared. Called my dad and I’m like, ‘Dad, I messed up, they’re going to send me home.'”

Turns out, it was a good career move, because Burke heard the story and loved it.

“Burkie calls and he’s like, ‘We’re going to sign you to an entry level deal.'”

And the rest is history.

Jr Mining shells that became weed companies. Just like dot coms of the 80's. LOL. One of the groups I work with acquired the mineral assets from one such shell. Teck is now a major investor in that project. Interesting legal advise we got at the time is that because cannabis is still illegal in the US, any cross border activities could be problematic for anyone connected to a weed company.

The whole thing reeked of corner store VHS rental shops...then Blockbuster shows up.
Over the Internet, you can pretend to be anyone or anything.

I'm amazed that so many people choose to be complete twats.

Yeah, that's the truth. These companies all talked a big game about getting out first and taking over the world market with their shitty Ontario factory farmed weed and they're all either downsizing like crazy now or out of business. The stocks keep on plummeting while people like Bruce Linton, the CEO of the biggest company Canopy Growth who oversaw this disaster all received giant golden parachutes.

And yes, even walking into one of these legal retail stores and using your charge card to buy a tiny amount of weed can get you flagged at the border. Same deal with ordering from the government website online. If your going to buy the government shwag (not recommended) be sure to use cash.

Is that right? The only guy I know getting the government dope is a late-60s vet who's getting it for free. Needless to say, he's like a kid on Christmas every time the postman shows up!

Do any of these big corporations have a "brand" yet? Like, Tilray's got the good stuff? I know in BC so much of the dispensaries are still supplied by the grey market, so I don't know if there's a Big Mac of weed from the big legit companies yet.

Wiz, your thoughts?

What i find is that certain growers are consistently better than others. Redecan, Good Supply and Spinach brands seem to be the best across all their strains while anything to do with Aurora cannabis is rubbish

I start with those 3 suppliers then look for anything over 20% THC that is priced reasonably. The premium strains are probably marginally better but why blow $40+ on an eighth when you get almost the same level of baked from one that comes in for 20-25...?
