Did you miss out on Derringer in the Morning? Here’s the best of the best of what was talked about today!
Derringer is back after an interesting week-long trip up to Sault Ste. Marie with his family. Ontarians can breathe easy now after a potential LCBO strike could have ruined their Canada Day long weekend — thankfully there will be booze. Gretzky or Sid the Kid: who the greatest of all time? The offspring of Toronto’s wandering capybaras now have names – Alex, Geddy and Neil, for members of the band Rush. And John has a great list of slang terms used in different parts of Canada.

An Ontario woman demanded her son, who was experiencing chest pains, see a ‘white doctor’ who ‘speaks English’ at a walk-in clinic in Mississauga. This resulted in a 4-minute argument with staff at the medical centre. Seriously?! This woman is a well-deserved Tool of the Day.
