On the Sunday buses
I think the Sunday bus service to be launched by the city is a good idea that will help local merchants, workers and everyone who just doesn’t own a vehicle and wants to just go visiting on Sunday. The people who won’t like it is the cab companies. Maybe that’s part of the reason they’re asking city hall for a raise in rates?
Thank you, Brandon Transit, for extending your service to include Sundays. I can’t afford a vehicle to go to church services on Sundays. Now I can take the bus each weekend ... you’re a real soul saver!
A challenge to Brandonites
I find in these types of forums which allow anonymous posting of comments, that the writers tend to vent their more negative thoughts. Whether this is truly how they feel every day, or just a chance to blow off some steam once in a while, I would hope the area’s residents are a little more optimistic about life than the message that is being sent on some online chat rooms and in this Sound Off box. I challenge people reading this to submit some positive thoughts or compliments. Let’s see if you can do it.
