Sound Off -- Feb. 24, 2014

Ladies melt the ice in Russia

This Thursday (Feb. 20) the ladies should be really proud! The Canadian ladies, first of all, win the curling at the Olympics and then secondly they come through in hockey with an unbelieveable performance! This was truly ladies day in Canada!

Really enjoy the lounge

I really appreciate the Olympic lounge next to the MTS store in the Brandon Shoppers Mall. I hope they keep it year round. It is really nice to just sit there and relax or visit with a few friends and then continue shopping, or wait for someone who is shopping.

Hey, what about us?

Just reading Sound Off in your paper the other day, “It’s Tough All Around.” Well, it is tough for us ordinary people but our politicians and our premiers seem to be able to travel all over the world and give our money away, but we can’t look after our own Canadian people. It is too bad they would stop and take a look at what is going on with their own Canadian people and spend the money around here.

News to me

I just received a flyer in the mail from my Conservative MP. It states that Tom Mulcair’s reckless spending and higher taxes are destroying our economy. When did Tom Mulcair become prime minister?

It is a health issue

After reading various comments, including a recent letter to the editor concerning the smudge issue, I think people do not understand the real issue. No one is trying to discourage spiritual practices. The rules are in place to protect those people with allergies who are made sick by various odors. Also, any odour of smoke can be extremely distasteful. Smokers have lost their sensitivity to the smell and don’t even realize how much they and their clothes reek. One person cannot expect to have his or her rights upheld at the cost of others’ health and comfort. The solution is simple: smudge, shower and change your clothes before attending school. That would be the respectful thing to do.
