Many thanks for your honesty
I recently lost my iPad. Following an ad placed in the lost and found I had a call from a city transit driver who had spotted it and took it to the police station where I retrieved it. I am thankful that there are still good, kind, honest people in our midst.
Hey, can you plow mine, too?
To the City of Brandon employee on 23rd Street, it would have been nice if you would have used the City of Brandon equipment to plow not only your own driveway but everyone else’s as well. I would like to know if all taxpayers have the same benefits or if this is misuse of equipment, time and money on the said employee’s part.
Not many French-speaking people in Thompson
What is the government thinking? I recently moved to Brandon after living in Thompson for 35 years. It is a crazy idea to build a French school in Thompson. There is only a very small French community in Thompson. The funding would be better off in Brandon as the population will remain constant, unlike Thompson’s population, which is highly reliant on mining. One must also ask can the government afford this?
What is the real reason for new school in Thompson?
In regards to the March 2 Brandon Sun article about the new French school in Thompson. First, Greg Selinger says “the school will give the community a place to meet and gather,” but this is not the purpose of a school! Secondly, Thompson has many empty classrooms, unlike Brandon’s schools that are overcrowded! Thirdly, I wonder if the Ashton presence in Thompson, with Niki Ashton a member of Parliament in the North, Alexander Ashton chair of the board of trustees in Thompson’s school division, and Steve Ashton formerly from Thompson, has cause for the new school?
Brandon is a great place — the Sun as well!
It’s really too bad more people don’t appreciate the fine community they have and the wonderful opportunity it is to live here. And allow me to polish an apple here, but the daily newspaper is head and shoulders above most that you’ll now find in cities this size. We moved here just after the TV station CKX went under. That has also happened in many smaller communities acrosss the country. But at least we still have a good daily paper where it looks like the owners give a damn by having a full and knowledgeable staff.
Kudos to our paper girl
I was totally amazed that the Brandon Sun made it to Brandon the day of the big snowfall, but even more amazed when my faithful carrier girl, in the South End of Brandon, made her way through the 12 inches of snow to deliver my paper ... and on time! Great to have young people like her in our city.
Leave the clocks alone
Why do we need daylight saving time at all in the winter? It shouldn’t start until after spring arrives, or better yet, not start at all. The only thing that increases are the insurance claims due to the increase of collisions for the first two weeks. The NDP government said it was a necessary change so that planes could arrive on time. How does that work in Saskatchewan?
