Alberta MLA Searle Turton presented his private members' bill yesterday to raise maximum allowable speeds on Alberta divided highways to up to 120. As too often the case with most things traffic safety, the QP afterward indicated a lack of understanding by some members, of how and why speed limits work, in that they don't have a lot of effect on travel speeds. They are simply a suggestion of the safest maximum travel speed and a different (higher number) does not necessarily mean travel speeds will increase. Predictably and regrettably, some in media then went to work, avoiding useful information and exploiting a well known tragedy to elicit emotional opposition to the proposal. This is like deja vu all over again, with the same playbook over and over. No wonder people are cynical.

This is what happens when boomers get old. They think the unthinkable should be normal.

"Look, I know that there is nothing more Canadian than staring adversity in the face and steadfastly doing nothing. But we can change. We need to stop solving today’s traffic problems with yesterday’s solutions. We don’t cure syphilis anymore by applying mercury to the genitals, so why should we try to save lives by relying so heavily on photo radar when we have advanced technology that is so much more effective?

All we have to do is be innovative.

I promise you Canada, it won’t hurt a bit."

"The New York-based company made its splashy newspaper debut a year ago by claiming it had collected over 3 billion photos of people’s faces and touting its connections to law enforcement and police departments. But the startup has faced a slew of criticism for scraping social media sites also without their permission, prompting Facebook, LinkedIn and Twitter to send cease and desist letters to demand it stops.

In a statement, Canada’s Office of the Privacy Commissioner said its investigation found Clearview had “collected highly sensitive biometric information without the knowledge or consent of individuals,” and that the startup “collected, used and disclosed Canadians’ personal information for inappropriate purposes, which cannot be rendered appropriate via consent.”"
