Time change

The province of Saskatchewan survives quite nicely without this bi-annual time change, and there are several smaller communities scattered throughout Canada who also manage to exist very comfortably without having to change their clocks and timepieces twice a year.

Political gamesmanship

In reply to the Sound Off “Down with Trudeau,” how about “Down with Divisive Rhetoric” and this silly title? If you replaced Mr. Trudeau’s name with that of Mr. Poilievre’s, the glove still fits. Neither of these leaders pass up the opportunity to criticize for merely political gain. Mr. Singh and Mr. Blanchet are less dramatic in their messaging and I appreciate that. The main issue that Mr. Trudeau spoke on isn’t about children losing school time, but the use of the notwithstanding clause or other legislation to take away the right to strike. Mr. Ford is also playing the political gain game when he muses about putting children first over the hard-fought and democratic right to strike.

Don’t kill Sound Off

According to social media posts, sounds like “Sounding Off” in the Brandon Sun will be no more. What appeared to be a very successful feature in the paper is being replaced with a “suggestion box.” The old adage, “If it’s not broke don’t fix it,” certainly describes a poor decision by the powers that be. Let me be the first suggestion to the new box. I suggest you leave well enough alone.

Must be a hatchet job

Why is the Sound Off feature, which has always been voted as a top favourite by the paper’s readers, is being cancelled? Is this some kind of hatchet job by current management?
