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 […]

Damn, that’s loud

Damn, that’s loud

Council is readdressing its noise bylaw. No big surprise, because their first attempt was a disaster. I was watching this, as I’m prone to do, and years ago Council struggled hard to build a noise bylaw that specifically targeted rural venues. This whole thing came up because neighbours complained about occasional concerts in two County […]

On Freedom

On Freedom

Canadians love to copy our American counterparts, who recently stormed the Capitol in the name of ‘freedom’. Sadly, in a desire not to be left out of the stupidity south of the border, we started challenging ‘freedom’ in our country. Think of it as a copycat crime. “Damn it!

Yay! Election time is coming!

Yay! Election time is coming!

It is time for reflection, on how our current Council has served us. We probably have different views on this. If your councillor did something good for you – like fix a parking ticket, or get your son out of jail – you’re probably pretty happy. If your councillor kidnapped your child and held him/her […]

Dealing with Dichotomy

Dealing with Dichotomy

As you know, I have several degrees provided through an established professional ‘Degree Provider’, Amazon.ca. I am now a certified psychologist, anthropologist, sociologist, numerologist, certified clairvoyant (though that certificate has not yet arrived. God only knows when that will come. Canada Post being what it is.) So I have spent a lot of time and […]

Is ‘Accommodation’ just a joke?

Is ‘Accommodation’ just a joke?

I’ve been busy, because Spring is our busiest time. Still, I try to keep tabs on what’s going on in the outside world, which is the County. I can’t even deal with a world outside of that. I’ve been watching the issue of ‘accommodation’, and I am puzzled. We have three issues to deal with: […]

Local Ukrainian donates to Red Cross

Local Ukrainian donates to Red Cross

“We are Strong, We are Here, We are Ukrainian” These are some of the words that Ukrainian President Voldymyr Zelenskyy spoke in one of his speeches recently to his country and the world. The situation is dire for the Ukrainian people and they are fighting to survive. You only have to watch the news reports […]

Three months a long time without eye health care

Three months a long time without eye health care

To the Editor: Premier Ford, and by extension, our MPP Todd Smith have created a non-COVID-19 health crisis unique to Ontario that is almost three months old affecting around four million Ontario citizens. Those of us in Prince Edward County, or indeed anywhere in the province, over 65 or under 19 have not had access […]
