    [–] Ion LRT will reshape development in Waterloo Region for decades to come Nextasy 4 points ago in kitchener

    The tech industry helps for sure. But it's due to good urban design practises and incentives for land value like LRT that locate these businesses in the downtown cores, rather than say, out past conestoga mall, in the bridgeport business park, or other places a mile from everything that don't much contribute to the urban fabric beyond generating traffic.

    [–] Wlu just banned smoking (tobacco/cannibis) and vaping on all of their campuses and properties Nextasy 16 points ago * (lasted edited 19 hours ago) in wlu

    Same. There's always been a 10-meter from building rule but its too unclear. This is nice and straightforward.

    Happy capes vapes are included too, the huge flavoured clouds are honestly worse imo

    [–] Something a little bit different for you - the suspense kills me every time Nextasy 5 points ago in Perfectfit

    Usually I very carefully move it to the sink and drip coffee stains all over the sides of the mug and counter and scald my hand

    https://wlu.ca/news/spotlights/2019/june/smoke-free-policy-faq.html?ref=smoke-free

    Laurier’s smoke-free policy prohibits the smoking of tobacco and cannabis by all methods, and prohibits vaping of all substances in any form, including the use of vaporizer and inhalant devices such as vape pens and e-cigarettes at all buildings and grounds owned, leased or operated by the university, including outdoor play areas, athletic and recreational fields, university residences and housing. The policy also applies to vehicles or equipment rented, owned or leased by the university.

    Laurier respects the sacred role of tobacco and other traditional medicines in Indigenous spiritual and cultural practices; approved religious and cultural exemptions will be made available under the policy. The medical use of cannabis, with proper documentation, is also permitted.

    [–] Preservationists Are Racing to Save Ouya's Games Before They Disappear Nextasy 5 points ago in Games

    It costs pretty much nothing to preserve this stuff. In the future, as information that will inform cultural history during these years, it will be much more valuable than the cost to preserve it, even if it only informs a little bit here and there.

    [–] Van crashes into LRT vehicle, again: Police | CBC News Nextasy 1 points ago in waterloo

    Yes. The lights stay red in all directions - no cars can go. There's a separate light for the train, which shows only a white vertical or horizontal line - this dictates whether the train has to stop or go. It only goes vertical when all cars are red.

    [–] Another LRT Accident, By Central Fresh Market Nextasy 4 points ago in kitchener

    He's probably been making that illegal U-turn, and then into the parking lot or similar, ever since the road was opened. I feel like familiarity with the area really breeds the comfort that causes this shit

    [–] Separated bike lanes to link downtown Kitchener, west side Nextasy 1 points ago in waterloo

    Should, as nobody will be expecting to drive straight in the left-turn lane

    Sorry, I'm Canadian, its the other way around here.

    [–] Question from someone who is not a planner Nextasy 3 points ago in urbanplanning

    This is wild - I had no idea this existed. Very interesting.

    [–] An Uber party at the Museum of Science of Industry became absolute chaos with a huge traffic jam and drivers turned away Nextasy 3 points ago in urbanplanning

    only benefit to me is reduced parking needs. But if it sucks ridership from public transit (guilty of falling prey to this myself) then imo it outweighs the parking benefit significantly.

    [–] Suburb Update Idea Nextasy 1 points ago in urbanplanning

    No parcelling needed, so way less homeowner consent required lmao

    [–] Suburb Update Idea Nextasy 6 points ago in urbanplanning

    would be fine as apartments on the upper floors for the variation with a pedestrian walkway.

    [–] Small Town in Texas Starer Pack Nextasy 1 points ago in starterpacks

    And with their votes, too. It boggles my mind how much rural america continues to vote blue while it seems to consistently favour big corps that send all the money back to the big cities.

    [–] First Year Bird Courses? Nextasy 1 points ago in wlu

    Save your bird credits for upper year - the courses get harder and you'll appreciate them more, and you'll really only get so many
