Brandon Sun - PRINT EDITION

Sound Off -- Jan. 24, 2014

Make it permanent

If Rolf Dinsdale plans to run again here, I strongly suggest that he establish an official residence here and get a job here, and that he do it yesterday.

Show me the progress!

Good to hear from Zack Gross this past Monday in his Small World column about all the fair trade conferences and fair trade shops opening, I guess. However, what I would like to see is some real convincing evidence that the stuff being grown in a poor country and subsequently “traded fairly” through fair trade networks results in Third World farmers becoming less poor.

Make a list and check it for anything positive

To Westman, I ask you to make a list of all the faults that you find with the Harper government — from losing the Wheat Board monopoly to losing the cattle operation at the Brandon Research Station to veterans not being treated properly. Make that list and then let me know why you vote for the Conservative party.

Why are we paying taxes for this — and now paying Autopac, too?

Regarding the Sound Off, “We Are In For A Wild Ride,” I have to agree. On our street alone there were five accidents due to the ruts in this one block of the road and MPI will not cover anything because of the roads. That’s all I have to say about that.

Wheaties are a different team this year

It is good to have the Wheat Kings doing well — congratulations to the players. I am sick of this team being compared to last year’s team. The Wheat Kings of 2012-13 were not of the calibre of the 2013-14 team (they were young and inexperienced) and you do not compare apples to oranges.
