Loss of editorial cartoon
We really miss the political cartoons that used to be on the editorial page. They were always witty and good for a chuckle. The photos you are using to replace the cartoons really miss the mark. They could be anywhere in the paper, but don’t merit replacing the cartoons. However, I do realize that some of the cartoons do poke fun at the Conservatives, so that is likely the reason they are gone. Too bad, as they were always part of the conversation at morning coffee.
Not protests but criminal acts
In Ferguson, Mo., it is time to take action on the protesters. Blocking roads, sidewalks, breaking into stores, throwing rocks at police is not a protest. They are criminal acts. They are doing more harm than good. Last year, the “Idle No More” protest blocked highways, rail lines and streets in the middle of Brandon and Winnipeg. I’m afraid all that did was make that group of individuals look worse than before. And let’s be honest … who but the protesters remember what it was all about? I sure don’t.
If you can’t commit, don’t buy a pet
Why is it that people get pets then have no time for them and say there is a baby on the way? Or they work too much and must sell the dog. Better yet, the parents are purebreds and want a lot of money for a mutt … no papers — then they are not purebred. All puppies are cute but don’t stay small forever, so make a long commitment or do not adopt a dog.
Thanks for the memories
I would like to thank all the people out there this summer who worked with the kids at camp with disabilities. My child had a blast and loved it. God bless you and thank you for memories that will last a lifetime.
Can’t see the signs
It is sure nice to see the 30 km/h zone sign by J.R. Reid School hidden behind a tree. The police will have a heyday come September trying to catch all the speeders going through it because you cannot see that sign there unless you know it is there.
No service available
MTS is only worried about Winnipeg. I bought a cellphone from MTS and now find out it does not work in the area I live, which is 16 kilometres south of Brandon. I spoke with neighbours and all say the same thing. MTS will do nothing to help us out. They are only worried about Winnipeg customers.
What is the point of this?
I find it interesting that the courts in Manitoba have decided to allow Michael Bridges an appeal on his request to leave jail to visit an ailing relative especially since the relative has already died and has been buried. I don’t see the point of wasting our tax money redoing a trial for no purpose or reason.
