Welcome to politically correct Sault Ste. Marie! Farters off to the left and belchers off to the right please and thank you. Nose picker may remain in the middle. Pretty boxes of kleenex are provided for your wittle fingers!
Let see how long before this gets pulled!

LOL I`m a goombar! Yes you are right about somebody in this city calling all the shots! That`s okay. I don`t believe in Karma but I believe that what goes around will come around.
I`m a really bad goombar! Ask anybody!
BTW what is a goombar?

Once our dollar drops in comparison with the US dollar...folks shop less in the US,,,simple as that.

What else is new? Close to four bucks to cross a bridge that has been paid off for years. The biggest cost is maint. Talk about getting REAMED without lubricant. Ouch
