Sound Off -- May 14, 2014

Time to upgrade equipment

I read in the Winnipeg newspaper that digital mammography will be delayed for another year. I have been told that Brandon has the oldest mammogram equipment in Manitoba and it is past its normal lifetime. If we are the only province that doesn't have the new equipment, then we must have the oldest mammogram machine in the country. Why do we have to wait for the rest of the province before we buy a new machine?

Tell the real story about CBC

It looks like CBC’s belt-tightening courtesy some solid oversight of the public purse by the Harper government is having the desired effect — some highly-paid staff who are ready for retirement are doing just so, making way for younger, eager (and cheaper) journalists. “The Fifth Estate” co-host Linden MacIntyre is putting away the typewriter at the age of 70 — well past the age most people retire. CBC Radio One “The World at Six” host Alison Smith is also leaving, admittedly I read in the paper, after she had been “considering retirement for a long time.” But both made sure they took a kick at Harper on their way out, blaming the “budget cuts” for their decisions.

Change your vote or see more of the same

That Sound Off writer who wants to know what happened to free enterprise in this province needs to take a basic course in political science. The legal voting majority of Manitobans have been voting for socialism (instead of the free market system) for many years now. So keep voting NDP and you’ll have more than the MLLC setting minimum prices.
