Links: Better than a suitcase full of meat


Blackberry Artists Shop Port Moody Arts Centre

I used to travel on a not infrequent basis for work. During that time, I would never check bags on a plane. I had a carry on size suitcase, and could live out of that for up to a week. It really wasn’t much of a problem to keep the amount I was carrying down to that size, especially since I assumed that I would get food at my destination. Turns out there’s someone in Port Moody who doesn’t have the same attitude. A suitcase packed with 100 lbs of meat was found in front of a Port Moody apartment on Sunday night. I have a feeling it wouldn’t make it under the weight restrictions.
