Post or thread about serial killer in Canada?

I can't find the post, but was there one about a serial killer caught in Canada, possibly posted 5+ years ago? It was in a really bad part of town/skid row in Toronto or possibly Vancouver. The thread was vivid in that it had a lot comments of people running into the serial killer, and several accepting a ride from him. One of the descriptions was of his car not having a handle on the inside passenger side door, something that stuck with me. [more inside]

Here's the skinny

Yesterday, January 29th "at lunch time", chunking express and his non-MeFite wife, Shima, had a healthy 5.5 lb. baby girl named Mythalli Mythili.

Awesome! Congrats to both of you! Look forward to seeing our newest MeFite at the next meet-up.

Help me see this youtube video in Canada.

The youtube video in this FPP is not available in my country (Canada) due to copyright restrictions. I've watched it before and would like to watch it again. Can someone either point me to it somewhere else online where it might work (maybe on youtube at another account), or at least tell me the proper title or some info I can use to search myself? Thanks.

Vancouverites, unite!

Vancouver Meetup?

I have claimed, on many,many,many occasions that I will be at a meetup, but, as yet, have not showed. I'm not so flaky as to not turn up for one I've organised myself, surely? (I'm not.) Anyone interested?

Vancouver meetup?

Vancouver (BC) meetup in the moderately near future? Plenty of time to plan, and initiating it is the only way I can make sure I'm going to be there. Need to commune with fellow geeks. Must be able to speak coherently in presence of female. That said, all welcome! Former Seattleite, so anyone wishing to road-trip with enough notice is encouraged!!

Toronto meetup.

Toronto MeFites, let us have a meeting of our not-so-secret cabal and create Canada's stealth plan for world domination. Or just have an alcohol-enabled bitchfest like usual. Whatever. Does the night of November 11th sound good?

Halifax, anyone?

I'm going to be in Halifax from Friday night until Tuesday afternoon. The vast majority of the time will be spent visiting with a couple of friends, but I may be able to squeeze in a couple of hours if anyone would like to hang out?

Ok to ask about sneaking into Canada?

If you answer this question on sneaking into Canada you could be breaking Canadian law. The poster clearly wants to scam Citizenship and Immigration Canada, since when is this ok?

Toronto meetup.

Toronto meetup reminder: it's tomorrow night (Saturday, the 25th) at 8 p.m. And I have a proposition for you all — a change of venue. Joelf is leaving Toronto to move back to Victoria, B.C. next week. His goodbye party is at the Madison. So, perhaps we could have our meetup there and deign to mingle with his punk ass friends in order to say our farewells.

Petition-linking maybe not best-of-web, maybe self-linking

Sign my petition! It's generated a big discussion, but I'm thinking that maybe a link to a blog that links to a petition might not be mefi material, especially from someone who has an interest (1, 2, 3, 4, from the only other thread he's ever participated in) in getting people to go there. If it walks like a self-link and quacks like a self-link...

Ottawa Meetup Update

MeFi Ottawa: 11 members, spousal units and lurkers made it to Pub Italia last night, where we consumed obscure beers, made boisterous small talk, annoyed other patrons with our flash photography, and crafted inappropriate shoutouts. So far, sboivert's photos and my photos have been posted to the MetaFilter pool on Flickr; aedra's photos, containing many more shoutouts, will be up once I let her have some time in front of this computer.

Can international users be added to the 'users near you' feature?

How about adding some mechanism whereby we Canadian users (and/or further abroad, but I don't know how complex that could get) could join the "Users near this user" crowd? Obviously we would have to provide postal codes, but the mechanism must exist, since it is used on several other site.

As far as integrating it with the US one, well, I don't know if that would be possible, let alone plausible, but it'd be a nifty addition.
