        He’s garnered quite a few votes of people that voted for his father, the fringes of society, and minorities/refugees that reap the benefits of the welfare/social assistance system. While Veterans that have served are left homeless and without support. He knows who to target for votes, that’s about all he’s good for.

        There's a reason I left Canada. I love Toronto, but in the job interviews there, I always got this sense of "oh, you little yellow person" while the elite ruled from their secret underground lair under the Toronto City Hall dome. Hard to explain, just a sense. I actually felt London was more of a meritocracy, like the US. Except with much less working and living space.

        I can one-up you. Semi-private (grey) organisations that operate in public functions but have no or little obligation to report to anyone. In NL alone these organisations are a source of many issues. At worst they receive partial funding from the tax-payer. They are fun...

        For the guy thats aligned a few carts and understands VTA, I don't see how the SOL is much different than many other high end TTs, except the price. I seem to remember the Linn Sondek being one that was a pain to dial in correctly. But I haven't set up a TT since the mid 90s when I set up a SOTA for a buddy.

        It's Wikipedia. While factual (can be a matter of contention), articles on there don't go through any rigorous vetting beyond what the community itself imposes upon them. Hardly objective.

        That said, I do use them as a quick reference for more obscure things sometimes.

        A simple thing to start with would be a bi-weekly or monthly review of some new piece of audio-gear, brutally honest in video format. Think of I.F. in the Tyll-era. Even as a noob I would watch those old I.F. reviews because Tyll combined science and his own biases to really explain what made something work for him (or not for that matter!). Adds a slightly edu-tainment edge to our silly place.
