Too many birds at the feeder already
I don’t understand why the City of Brandon feels it is necessary to spend staff time and money to advertise and urge more organizations to make applications for 2015 municipal grants. Don’t we have enough “birds” at the “feeder” asking for our tax dollars already? I am sure there are some worthwhile groups out there that are making acceptable use of our grant dollars. However, in this day of soaring taxes, why don’t we just let legitimate organizations approach the city on their own initiative and not advertise “feeder” availability? Maybe we can do something about this in the upcoming elections.
Who caused previous climate changes?
Climate change has been going on since the beginning of creation — this area was once a glacier, then Lake Agassiz. Where was the population to cause it? Africa was joined to Canada — fossil formation! No problem with evolution versus creation — science is just finding out what God has already done.
Travel for services is exhausting
I agree with the previous Sound Off about keeping services in Brandon. I wholeheartedly agree. I have recently, over the last year, had to travel back and forth to Winnipeg to see an eye specialist. There are only four doctors who do this kind of work in Manitoba and they are all in Winnipeg. The travel back and forth is exhausting, stressful and expensive. We need to do something to get these services in Brandon.
Another intelligent decision made by government!
I want to give a great big thank you to the federal government for closing the Agriculture Canada Research Station in Winnipeg and the cattle experimental group in Brandon because everyone knows that agriculture doesn’t benefit anyone in Manitoba or in Canada! Thanks a lot, federal government!
Typical Manitoba hog industry propaganda
A little slowdown in the hog market at Maple Leaf and they are crying the blues, wanting to have unlimited pollution throughout this province. I am not going to stand for it. They have got 75 per cent of the Maple Leaf workforce driving new 2015 vehicles in the city. There is no way they are having money problems. Give me a break, hog industry! That is garbage!
