SEEMS THEY HAVE PLENTY TO GIVE NOW

Justin Trudeau just lately introduced that $300 million was going abroad to assist battle COVID-19 along with the billions of he has handed out to different causes with little or no management by Parliament. I can solely think about what goes by the minds of the women and men who’ve proudly served or are serving in our navy. So many lives misplaced, bodily and psychological accidents. After they ask for assist from their nation, they’re instructed, “You’re asking for greater than we can provide.”

Right here’s hoping the Habs lose to the Penguins within the play-in spherical later this summer time and win the Alexis Lafrenière sweepstakes. The child is a phenom in the identical mould as Auston Matthews and can be an ideal match for the Bleu Blanc Rouge. A Quebecer with probably the most fabled franchise within the Nationwide Hockey League, that might be a dream come true for Montreal followers.

PUT MERIT FIRST

I agree with letter author Bob Morris 100 per cent. Political correctness has reached the purpose that the very best folks, irrespective of the race or color of their pores and skin, are being bypassed for jobs and promotions with a purpose to appease those that take offence to even the smallest of slights. Is it good that we’re discussing racism? Completely … whether it is certainly racism and never somebody who figures they will get one thing for nothing simply by crying racism.

Let’s put benefit and expertise forward of color, race, faith or political affiliation and begin hiring those that have earned and deserve the place.

TOO LATE TO HIT THE BRAKES?

I learn an fascinating article just lately regarding the present dire monetary straits of Ottawa. It appears to me that nobody within the press is asking any questions concerning the LRT in relation to this — not less than not within the public area.

I imagine that Ottawans deserve clarification and an evidence.

Given the dire monetary straits Ottawa appears to be in, why is town not suspending the present plan to implement Part three and perhaps even components of the LRT Part 2 undertaking.

This undertaking hardly appears to be the identical precedence presently that it was a number of months in the past. The pandemic has modified and can proceed to alter a lot of the world as we all know it. With extra folks planning to earn a living from home sooner or later, would this not issue into any choices relating to the LRT? Wouldn’t it not be the correct time to reassess?

Certainly there are larger priorities at play now than the completion of the complete LRT undertaking. Pardon the pun, however is that this not a “practice that may be stopped” or not less than slowed down for aside from technical causes?
