Out of a necessity to deal with continual ad spam, as well as making the blog easier to share, Disqus is being imported into the site.
All of the comments have been temporarily removed as Disqus converts them into its format and I can re-integrate them into the site.
We've recently had an issue with one of our provincial websites, and it was the tipping point for me to inact this change. Hopefully it will not be any impediment to either the reading or the ability to respond with what you read here.
Peace and take care.
