Are people reaching their “lock-down” limit?

June 2020 The crowds that packed Trinity-Bellwoods Park on May 24 may have been committing a careless act (future infections from the participants will tell), but in way I can hardly blame them.

We need to make a choice on trade with China

May 2020 While we likely will never stop trading with China, I think we seriously need to question why we rely on them so much for a lot of the merchandise in our stores, and other needed items like medical supplies and pharmaceuticals. Now, I do understand why so many of the things for sale …

Who killed the electric car? Oh right, the buying public who don’t want them

We have to have some balance in fighting the Wuhan coronavirus pandemic

May 2020 Even though we are still living with the deadly Wuhan coronavirus, we do need to begin the process of returning to some semblance of a normal society.

May 2020 Although I don’t own a cottage, nor know any one who does, I’m going to throw my two-cents in to the discussion. While the permanent residents of our cottage regions are entitled to their opinions, I’m not buying a lot of the arguments they are putting forth. They are concerned that the local …

Governments will have to cut spending in wake of Wuhan coronavirus

May 2020 Re: “Sharpen those scissors,” (Ben Eisen, Toronto Sun, 5 May 2020): The lefties are going to lose their minds, but cuts will have to be made to government spending when the Wuhan coronavirus pandemic ends.
