Time to abolish school boards
Seeing the latest property tax increases for school taxes imposed by the local school boards and the comments by the minister of education, it is obvious that school boards are not accepting their financial responsibilities for the operation of the school system. It is time for the school board to be abolished and the provincial government to fund the education of school divisions 100 per cent. This is the position that has been supported by the Manitoba Teachers’ Society as well.
Priority should be feeding your kids
I fail to understand why children are going to school hungry. That just shows how their parents care about them. My wife and I came from families with little or no money, but our parents made sure that we had breakfast before we went to school. They were on the edge of being on welfare. So we are a bit confused of the problem today.
I don’t understand how he does not understand
Machete-wielding man (March 26, Brandon Sun) doesn’t understand police telling him to drop the weapon and the judge gives him a fine. He has been in Canada for seven years and doesn't understand “drop it.” Give your head a shake. He shouldn’t have been allowed in Canada without being able to speak and understand English in the first place.
Cheers for Parkview Seniors
I have lived in Parkview Seniors Housing Co-op for six years and we are allowed a small dog or a cat. I have a small dog. So there are some places in the city that do allow you to bring a pet.
Thanks for the pickup
I would like to thank the kind Samaritan who picked up a 71-year-old man who fell on the ice on Monday and took him home. It was really nice of them and I thank you very much.
