There's something utterly beautiful about how cities look like from space. They remind me of neurons in the human brain - their lit-up streets and buildings create a beautiful pattern that looks something like an elaborate network of dendrites. It's things like this that make me believe we're all part of something much bigger.
Police said they received reports of the drivers speeding and purposefully ramming their vehicles into one another. "The vehicles finally came to a stop at the intersection of 227th Street and 119 Avenue, when two men jumped from the vehicles and began physically fighting on the street," said a police report. The drivers had also hit several other vehicles amid the altercation.
"This type of behavior was completely dangerous and reckless. These two people were so engrossed in whatever their drama was that they weren't thinking about any other person other than themselves," said Constable Julie Klaussner. "Thank you to the public for the overwhelming number of reports and updates helping police to shut down this incident quickly. Thankfully no-one was seriously injured in this reckless event."
Both men were arrested and are now facing multiple charges.

A new ranking of the top Canadian cities for young adults to work in was released on Tuesday, May 11. For those who want to work on the West Coast, it seems like now is the time to hunt for jobs in Vancouver.
While there were 27 major Canadian cities included in the list of the best places to work, B.C. cities ended up snagging more than one of the top 20 spots. Victoria ranked fourth, and Kelowna came out at number 12.
The RBC and Youthful Cities' 2021 Urban Work Index determined the rankings by using 11 different criteria, including good jobs for youth, cost of living, climate change, and equity and inclusion.
Youthful Cities says it recognizes the impact COVID-19 has had on youth looking for entry-level work. The hope is that the urban work index can serve as a guide "for a more inclusive and accessible work in our great Canadian cities."
Vancouver was ranked number one for public transportation, public health, and equity and inclusion. Even though it landed first place, Youthful Cities said that Vancouver was close to having the lowest score for cost of living.
Some of the highest case rates were recorded in the following regions: Nisga'a, Upper Skeena, Prince Rupert, the Vancouver Coastal Health Region, Howe Sound, and some small parts of the Fraser Health Region including Surrey and Abbotsford.
The map represents cases from January 2020 to April 2021 and it also shows the number of reported COVID-19 cases in each health area.
While case counts are always changing, case rates show a more holistic representation of the volume of cases in relation to the population of a certain area
