Screwing with the Government

Screwing with the Government

This is actually the antithesis of this story. By that I mean, I do not screw with the government. If the government asks me to send them money, I send it. I don’t question it, even if I have no idea why I’m doing it. Somewhere there’s a big black chalkboard (or maybe a computer) […]

STA board says County no further ahead with new bylaw rules

We have been speaking at council sessions for over […]

Work - it's a new game

Work – it’s a new game

I have lived in the County a long time. I remember when parking tickets were sketched onto stone tablets, and stuck to buggy windshields with spit. I probably didn’t need to tell you that, because my point is: Work. I have work, and I enjoy it. I grew up on a farm and had work […]

Should the people decide?

Should the people decide?

I know it’s a while before the municipal election, but I’ll be taking a break from column writing soon, so you’ll be on your own. I encourage you to attend candidates meetings, in which people get to ask pointed questions about County issues. Most of the County will be home watching their favorite TV programs, […]

Who’s going to bell the cat?

Who’s going to bell the cat?

Over the last few columns, I’ve had comments on our cement highway, the problems with STAs and the lack of accommodations for workers, hence a lack of workers available to support our infrastructure. By infrastructure, I mean the things that make us tick. Lots of tourists; lots of businesses to greet them. Lots of businesses […]

Western world worries

Western world worries

I am a regular human being. I am not ‘normal’ as we have previously established, but average. I do what Canadians do. I get up. I shower, I dress, I look to see if I need to shave, or should just try the Don Johnson ‘Miami Vice’ studly look. This usually wins out, because I’m […]

I got lost on the cement highway

I got lost on the cement highway

Yes, we have a cement highway, and we don’t know what to do with it. It was a great idea (more on that later) but now it’s past its expiry date. It’s very bumpy. It’s not bumpy like the corrugated roads built by our pioneers out of logs, which even made the horses go ‘ouch’, […]

Being You

Being You

In the last blog I talked about lines between people. Now I’d like to turn that around. This may not be popular with all readers, but I am me, and that’s what I do. That, in fact, is what this column is about. You may not care for what I say. I don’t care. That’s […]

Too many Lines

Too many Lines

As you know, I study things. I watch people, and their behaviour. This probably came from my time at Queen’s, when I was a wanna-be engineer, and my roomie, also named Steve, was an ‘Artsie’. Traditionally, in the stupid ‘Frosh Week’ we, as brainless, terrified teenagers, were told to hate the artsies. We were also […]

Tired of 'What Ifs'

Tired of ‘What Ifs’

Long, long ago I lived in a world of ‘What Ifs’. I was young, and I wasn’t sure if what I was about to do would bankrupt me, imprison me, result in divorce, or generate a possible zombie apocalypse. I lost a lot of sleep back then, but I’m gaining it back now. The thing […]
