Disclaimer - Dumdad's comment made me realize that this post might come across as me not giving a damn at all. He's right, it is a tragedy to the families of these people, and I didn't mean to imply it wasn't.
Apparently the weekend here was tragic. Tragic no less.
Or so they were telling me on the radio this morning. Eleven deaths over the weekend. Eight in car accidents. Three by drowning.
Of the car accidents, most all were caused by excessive speed and alcohol (a motorcyclist's bike ended up 800 meters from where the accident happened - that, my friends, is speed).
Three men drowned when they decided to go swimming in a prohibited area that involves rapids and big rocks.
There are 7,000,000 people in Quebec. Eleven just died because of gross stupidity for the most part. It's unfortunate, but nowhere near tragic, despite what they might be saying in the news. This isn't anywhere near the scale of tragic.
Yeah, I know, the switch is stuck on bitch this morning.
