It’s A Very Rocky Relationship

A Saskatoon, Saskatchewan couple apparently couldn’t wait to get home to start banging each other, so they decided to do so on someone’s front lawn.

North Battleford RCMP are investigating after a couple was interrupted in a compromising position – and allegedly became violent.

Police called to 1900 block of 102nd Street around 7 p.m. on June 15 after someone cutting lawn located two people having sex.

Seriously? On someone’s lawn? Don’t these Canucks know that’s what parks and playgrounds are for?

Police say the couple became upset and started throwing rocks at the complainant.

Now see that’s just rude. Besides, the couple are supposed to be getting their rocks off!

Trainspotting

If you happen to find yourself traveling through Saskatchewan, Canada, you may want to steer clear of Saskatoon for a few, well, weeks.

A dashboard camera has captured the moment a 52-car CN train carrying grain derailed near a rural intersection just north of Saskatoon, Sask. Clean-up of the area has been underway since Tuesday evening.

Firefighters were called to the intersection of Highway 11 and Wanuskewin Road in near Warman just before 9:30 a.m. on Tuesday, where they saw 30 rail cars had been derailed and were leaking fuel.

“We have a fire that’s flowing. The liquid fuel, the diesel, is actually flowing and igniting at the same time so it provides some additional challenge to control that,” Saskatoon Fire Department Assistant Fire Chief Wayne Roger told CTV Saskatoon.

The dashboard video is at the link. It’s great entertainment until the driver realizes, “Holy crap, I better get the hell outta here.”

What A Dyck

A Canadian town is scrambling to rebuild a bridge which collapsed shortly after it was finished.

A rural municipality in east-central Saskatchewan is promising an investigation into the collapse of a bridge that was opened just hours earlier. The incident took place late Friday afternoon at the site of the Dyck Memorial Bridge in the RM of Clayton.

A statement the municipality put on its website and Facebook page said “the bridge was built to Canadian Bridge Standards and unfortunately something under the riverbed failed, that could not have been anticipated. This caused the pier to sink and the middle span to fall off the pier cap and into the river.”

In the meantime, Rea said the municipality is trying to get a company to “come out and do some testing.”

I’m no engineer, but may I suggest sending a few portly gentlemen across the bridge before you pronounce the structure safe?
