    Before you criticize someone, you should walk a mile in their shoes. That way, when you criticize them, you're a mile away and you have their shoes.

    "When from a long distant past nothing persists, after the people are dead, after things are broken and scattered, still alone, more persistent, more faithful, the smell and taste of things remain poised a long, long time like souls, ready to remind us, waiting, hoping for their moment amid the ruins of all the rest, and bear unfaltering in the tiny and almost impalpable drop of their essence the vast structure of recollection."

    Do Taxis in Montreal have the emergency light like they do in Toronto?

    I guess I could google that myself...

    "Police search Lachine Canal near where missing taxi driver's cab found"

    "His wife, Florida, said he went to work on Dec. 21 after taking a few days off due to fatigue."
    "He didn't love his work, he found it dangerous, but he did it for his family," (Si Lakhal's 18-year-old daughter, Thanina) said.

    This time of the year can be so difficult for so many ... IMHO only ... .

    Another article states, "(a)fter searching Silakhal’s vacant cab, investigators ordered officers to comb the shores of the Lachine Canal near the area he went missing," which makes me wonder that perhaps they found something in his vehicle (e.g., a note), prompting the search ....

    I hate the feeling of knowing bad news is coming. Please let my gut be wrong.
