Issue 657 Volume 3 Number 157
It's Monday, November 28 2022 and we're are wondering if our old 2010 Ford Fusion can get us to Finch, Merrickville, Smiths Falls, or Perth to see the Canadian Pacific Holiday Train, which is making stops in those towns at 2:30, 4:45, 6:20, and 7:40 respectively.

Eggnog Latte Odyssey
It made us a little sad when that big commercial coffee brand stopped offering Eggnog Lattes at Christmas time. So the ottawan has started compiling a list of places that you can still buy this delicious blending of coffee, milk product, and spices. We can only spare so much time in this pursuit, however, so we humbly ask you, our dear readers, to let us know where you get yours.
Where to buy an Eggnog Latte
☕ Carlington Coffee House uses a rotating list of coffees roasted in Montréal, Ottawa, Toronto, and Vancouver. We had a superb a Eggnog Latte with oat milk (note: we choose oat milk for the lower calorie count; the eggnog syrup is not vegan). 917 Merivale Road.
☕ Keepers Coffee, Pakenham. In addition purchasing a flavourful eggnog latte, we browsed their extensive selection of plants, locally made food and home gifts, and well curated vintage products. 2518 County Road No 29, Pakenham, Once-ler’s (closed Monday and Tuesday).
☕ Bridgehead is offering Eggnog Lattes as part of their holiday menu until December 29. 2140 Carling Ave and others.
☕ Planet Coffee has Eggnog Lattes on the menu, alongside the usual selection of baked treats. 24a York Street.
☕ Latte, schmatte. Equator Coffee's locations are serving up Eggnog London Fogs. Yes, they really are!

Twice last week we referred to Convoy lawyer Brendan Miller accusing, at the Emergency Act inquiry, an officer of public relations firm Enterprise Canada of walking around the protest with a Nazi flag in order to discredit the event. The officer accused was a Senior Vice President; we incorrectly wrote that Miller accused a different and more senior position. We apologise for the error.
Enterprise Canada and the Senior Vice President deny the accusation completely and have served Miller with a notice of defamation.
We'll see you tomorrow – Martha and Darren
