Brandon Sun - PRINT EDITION

Sound Off -- March 20, 2014

Justice system?

I read where Vince Li was allowed out on the streets of Selkirk. Thank goodness I, or my loved ones, don’t live in Selkirk! That man is a killer and a mutilator. Jail would be too good for him. He should not be allowed to see the light of day.

A long time coming

What a coincidence that a story about the bridge between Coulter and Waskada — washed out in the flood of 2011 — is only days away from reopening to traffic. And, also in today’s (March 17) Sun, in the Looking Back column 30 years ago, the NDP government announced that an eastern access route would be constructed into Brandon. Perhaps residents of the deep southwest should be thankful it only took three years to construct the bridge ... it took the NDP 29 years to complete the eastern access route!

No one gets my vote

Even though they are cutting some teaching positions the school board still have to raise our taxes? Well, at least they tried! As for the cutback of 11 teachers, the sun will still rise and the children will still get the same level of education that they have gotten all the previous years. As for election time? I will still do what I have done for years with the school trustees ballot — spoil it!

Thanks for the quick water fix

Just wanted to give praise to the City of Brandon for the great service we had when our water was frozen. We got home late one night and found we had no water to our home, phoned them, within half an hour they returned our call and came the following morning and had the problem fixed by noon. We had fast service and three great guys working to fix the problem. Great job guys and a big thank-you.

Clean off these ruts

I would like to know why the city seems to think it is so important to be removing snow off Ottawa Avenue and 20th Street in the west end while in the east end the roads are so rutted from the snow melting and then refreezing that you have to drive over them really slowly cause it bounces your car all over the place. Shouldn’t they be worried about cleaning the streets before they worry about taking snow away that is going to melt anyway?

Consider yourselves lucky

So Brandon School Division class size is to be 20 for K-3? I have worked with three Chinese teachers. Their classes begin at 8 a.m and end at 5 p.m. Each teacher had 60, 65 and 70 students, respectively. Wages? Well, you can imagine how tiny. Teachers in Brandon — you just think you are hard done by?
