I practically live online now days. As a librarian and as a blogger. The library course I am taking is really helping me understand more, I am glad about this.
Just felt like mentioning, before I brave the snow to go to the Univeristy Library to do work for my class.
I am still so glad that the bus strike is over; as far as I know, most of my blog readership is outside of Ottawa, so you may not realize how hard this was for us here.
People lost jobs. People lost their businesses. I saw elderly people with canes walking in the snow. Many people I work with had to begin their workday at 6 or 7 AM or they would not get a parking spot (they normally take the bus and car traffic went up 20% which sounds like a small number, but it made a HUGE difference).
There are so many stories of suffering because of this bus strike that happened in the middle of various snow storms. It is hard for us as a city to forgive the city government and the buses/union for buses for belabouring this strike to over 50 days.
Of course we must forgive and I know, as a Christian, I must pray for my city.
