Brandon Sun - PRINT EDITION

Sound Off -- Dec. 27, 2013

When is enough enough?

At all levels of government, federal, provincial, municipal — everyone has their hand out for more money, more money. Well, you know what? I have reached the end of any retirement savings I ever had. I don’t have any more money to give. Am I too, going to sleeping under the Eighth Street bridge with my little dog? When does it end?

Mail pickup is not the end of the world

To all the seagulls out there who seem to pick holes in everything that means a change. There is a lot of talk about the new postal system at this time. We talk about those who will not be able to pick up their mail, well how do they get their groceries and other needs? I am sure people do not become recluses, they must have someone who runs their errands. What great difficulties would they have if they only got to their mailbox once or twice a week? Canada Post will carry out this new system no matter the cost and problems, and we will learn to cope with whatever is put in front of us. People in the rural areas of this country have been picking up their mail at the local post office since the beginning of time and they are able to cope — perhaps you may get to meet your neighbour!

I plan on donating!

I was happy to read that Farran Munn has taken on the daunting task of reducing the number of stray animals on First Nations land. As an animal lover myself, it cannot be easy to see starving and sick dogs without any hope of care. I hope that her fundraising efforts are paying off and I plan to help with a donation myself. Way to go, Farran!

I totally support this

A big round of applause for Farran Munn who is trying to put together this mobile vet clinic to get to the First Nations and try to save the dog population out there. That is a great job and I am proud to support that.
