If they want it they should come
I see absolutely no reason why people in the remote reserves should be entitled, at exceptionally obscene costs, to receive education the same as the south cities. For over 100 years people from all over the world came to Canada from their native country or sent their children here for education. There is absolutely no reason why people in remote reserves cannot move. They have nothing as modern as the southern cities and it is impossible to give their children the same advantages as in the south.
Missed another one
On Feb. 8 around 11 a.m., we stopped at 18th Street and Victoria Avenue for a red light. In the turning lane there was a lady from Saskatchewan. She was texting. A police car pulled up behind us and directly beside her. For the whole red light he failed to notice she was texting. He looked everywhere but at her. She continued texting while she pulled out into the intersection.
Time to expand
I have just used the WestJet-Calgary service. It was great. Thanks, WestJet, for providing this to Westman. It is my hope that the “powers that be” in Brandon see fit to quickly get a proper terminal on site. This will allow Westman travellers to see the last of the overcrowded “Little House on the Prairie.”
You could have killed my baby!
To the reckless grey pickup driver who sped through his left hand turn, cutting me off as he turned south from Kirkcaldy to 18th Street at 9:53 a.m. on Feb. 10. Your thoughtless action could have seriously injured or killed myself and my eight-and-a-half-month-old baby. Think about it!
Healthy Living Centre needs a pool
I fully agree that a new pool of competition size should be built at our Brandon University. In my opinion, due to the outdated Sportsplex, we should build a new pool. There is really not sense in putting my tax dollars into an old pool. This is time to build a competition eight-lane pool.
