Opinion columnists aren't journalists.
People... know that, right?

Like, a journalist, especially a freelancer who has to round out the budget, may write an op-ed from time to time... but that op-ed is still not journalism.
Last time I shit-talked the cops for VICE my editor was grilling me on fact checking to the point where I had to cite the exact line in court documents to support an assertion

my last op-ed, the editor just reworded a few clumsy sentences

not the same type of work

Speaking of white supremacists in Edmonton, who wants to meet more #yeg Soldiers of Odin?

Meet Todd Chatters.
Todd Chatters claims on his Facebook profile to be a labourer at O'Hanlon Paving. At @/trash_fabulous on Twitter he pinned a tweet of a rather nasty injury on his cheek he says came from a 5-inch grinder.
This same injury can be seen in his softsoap interview with Jeff "Definitely Not a Nazi I Just Hang Out with Them" Sharpe, uploaded by Youtuber user "Holy War" on September 4. The gash is better healed over, but still visible on his left cheek, which matches his pinned tweet.

We're talking a lot about cost increases in #yeg from 2006 to 2016. I want to share some numbers associated with physical growth in that period.

Time for a math thread #yegcc
Since 2006 developed land has increased by 8,500 hectares. And that's from agricultural/reserved land. No roads, schools, services.
A May 2011 report from the city of Edmonton pits the annual operational cost per hectare AFTER neighbourhood completion (that is all capital and operational costs for service installation done with) at $56,772 per hectare.

Today for Father's Day, I'd like to pay tribute to my father, Ruthven Shepherd, who passed away Thursday morning w/ all of us at his side:… #ableg
Dad grew up in Trinidad, 4th of 10. He loved electronics & working w/ his hands. He learned to build bread boxes out of coconut oil tins & sold them to get $2.50 to buy a do-it-yourself crystal radio kit. He stole a telephone handset to craft a speaker. #ableg
He went on to vocational school and took pleasure in learning various trades (woodworking, metalworking, electrical) alongside regular classes. He was in the top 10 students in every subject. Top student in some. #ableg
