Thanks for the photo-op
As a member of the Brandon Camera Club, I wish to send out a sincere thank you to all the staff at the Green Spot for allowing us to go into their garden centre on the morning of Dec. 1 to take photos. We had a wonderful time and were able to get some great shots.
Hurry up and wait
When is the city/highways going to upgrade the traffic lights in this city? The lights are too long in some places, where the traffic is low, and the turning arrows are way too short in a lot more — like 18th Street and Park Avenue or 18th Street and Richmond Avenue, to name a few.
Why do we pay more?
Why is gas so much more here? Winnipeg and small surrounding towns have been at 106.9 a litre for many weeks now. Why does the price in Brandon and surrounding towns remain at 115.9? We are gouged, gouged, gouged!
Stick with the basics
The front page of the Saturday Brandon Sun may suggest why our kids are falling behind in school. A ‘Sensory Surround.’ Please, my taxes are paying for this? We need to get back to the basic 3 Rs and cut the crap.
What kind of message are they sending?
For concerned and broke taxpayers of this city, you must read the City of Brandon’s affordable housing strategy on the city’s website. What are they thinking? Some of their harebrained ideas will encourage citizens to pack up and get the heck out of here while the going is good!
