Mr. A
It should be illegal for it to be this cold... that's Canada I guess.

6:11 PM, January 30th, 2021
Steve Kirkland (host)
Mr. A, we were let off easy for the first many weeks of winter... we need to be reminded that this is Ottawa... we also need the canal to be open for skating

Steve Kirkland (host)
Hey Jeb.. that could be viewed as a bunny

6:16 PM, January 30th, 2021

Steve Kirkland (host)
A fully acceptable illiteracy

6:25 PM, January 30th, 2021
Mr. A
I just remembered that Ottawa is considered to be one of the coldest capital cities. I wish I had that love for skating. Unfortunately I am not built that way haha.

6:28 PM, January 30th, 2021
Steve Kirkland (host)
I can't skate worth shit, Mr. A, but I love walking on the frozen canal
