Dedicated to the general sights, news and funny happenings in the wonderful city of Windsor
Local young band volunteer their time in fundraisers in the Windsor area and have helped raised thousands of dollars for local charities and events in our community. They have recently performed in the Rock for Dimes Windsor 2018 Battle of the Bands, a March of Dimes Canada event, and won the competition!
I woke up to this email in the middle of the night, CRA does not send anyone e- transfers EVER. It's looks very legitimate and I can see many people falling for it. I've reported it to both CRA and my email provider. Please be aware this is a SCAM!!
Monday morning at 6am the phone rang and woke me up out of a sound sleep. A lady told me that a purchase was made on e bay for 300 dollars. She told me it raised a red flag and did not allow the transaction to be completed. I had trouble understanding her indian accent and she became frustrated with me and hung up. I did contact my credit card provider, they told me that this was the latest scam going around in order to retrieve your credit card information. I stayed in bed, so my card information remained safe.
Do not fall for this scam BE AWARE!!!
To the woman in Freshco today who threw a temper tantrum while the cashier sent someone to check a price on an item that scanned wrong, shame on you!
While the .29 cents is not a big deal to you, you are not in my shoes right now! What you dont know is those few groceries I had in my cart were all carefully calculated with the little bit of money I had. What you dont know is I am desperately trying to not lose my house, my car and keep food on the table for my kids. What you dont know is I havent been sleeping at night, Ive been trying to hide my worries from my children and trying to just keep our heads above water.
What you didnt know is my entire life! I am sorry that it inconvenienced you but yelling at me, throwing your groceries around and telling me how pathetic I am was uncalled for. Thank you for making me feel like a worse parent than I already do. I hope your hours are never cut at work or you ever fall on hard times!

Racism is obviously not a secret nor a surprise in today's society. However, it is still absolutely disgusting and sad that racist words can be spoken and events can occur in public without a word being said by anyone. It is much easier to keep your face in your phone, your headphones in your ears, and to keep your mouth closed because it's not your business right?
I am a mixed Jamaican/ black/ Caucasian young woman. I was on my way home from work and I'm sitting in the center back of the bus. I pulled the wire for me to get off at my stop. As I stand up and walk towards the front of the bus, the bus driver asks everyone to move to the back of the bus because it is fairly crowded. I had to get off at the front of the bus to get my bike off of the bike rack. One young man decided it was okay to say "Hey Rosa Parks get to the back of the bus!" Did anybody say anything? No.
I did not want to cause a scene and I was so much in shock at what was just said and since he was already at the back of the bus while I was at the front door, I said to the bus driver the disgusting words that were just spoken to me and told him which young man that said it. I mentioned that he should be kicked off of the bus because that is absolutely not acceptable. The bus driver said "oh wow okay." I said thank you and got off the bus.
I took my bike off of the rack and walked onto the sidewalk expecting this man (about 17-22?) to be kicked off the bus or at least spoken to but the bus driver just closed the doors and drove away as I stared in shock.
I'm so disgusted, but not surprised, that comments like this are still said and taken so lightly. The bus driver didn't even say anything to this person and with the bus FULL of people nobody said anything either. How disgusting. How sad. Bless you both and have a fantastic day. ✌🏽
Walking home in the rain I found a cell phone with some damage but still working. It's locked so I can't text/ call anyone to find the owner. It was in the 3400 block of Sandwich Street. Please contact Stephanie at firstname.lastname@example.org if you think it's yours.
Would like to thank the paramedics that came to my house February 17, 2018 to help with my 6week old who was having breathing issues. They helped me remain calm, reassured this panicked mama, and even got me to smile and relax during a very scary time. In the craziness of it all I dont remember their names, but would like to acknowledge how amazing they were. Also to the nurses and doctors in emerge and on the paediatric floor who did an amazing job woth my daughter and again helped calm and reassure this very worried mama.
Truly grateful for all of you who helped last night.
