The Tourism Monster is back

The Tourism Monster is back

For a change, since I was recently barbecued for trying to support equality in our society, I thought would try something that I’m sure all of us agree on: Big-time tourism is back, and we don’t really like it. Sure, in the Old Days of 2019, I think most of us came to the realization […]

Stop complaining ... fix it

Stop complaining … fix it

Like most of us, I am still fixated on Where We Go From Here. Our world has shattered, and in more ways than we anticipated. George Floyd, on top of COVID-19, on top of finding out how Long Term care facilities failed the grade, and a sudden focus on long term abuse of native Canadians […]

Look back and see.... Nothing

Look back and see…. Nothing

What happens if you look back on history, and there’s nothing there? What happens if we have cleansed our history so well, there’s not a wart or a wood tick to be found? The answer is obvious, we can all relax in our sheltered world, in which nothing bad ever happened, and sit in the […]

Word on the Street: Buried in our own words

Word on the Street: Buried in our own words

There was a time in Canada when we were happy to be just Canadians. That is to say: “Here we are in Canada. How you doin’?” By the way, the proper answer to this is, “Good. And you?” Not, “Oh, man, I have been having some real trouble with bladder leakage and incontinence, and it […]

Word on the Street: Change is in the air

Word on the Street: Change is in the air

When the world stopped turning a couple of months ago, everybody hunkered down. It’s amazing how quickly people read the rules, and responded to curb the spread of COVID-19. At first this was The Great Inconvenience, but we soon learned we were going to be in this for the long haul. Here in the County, […]

Word on the Street: Black Lives

Word on the Street: Black Lives

Back when Presidents were Presidents, John F. Kennedy said: “If you suppress peaceful revolution, you are guaranteed to have violent revolution.” By the time this appears, the riots in the United States will have lessened in force. This makes no difference in the fight that lies ahead for our southern neighbours. I call them neighbours, […]

Word on the Street: Moving on

Word on the Street: Moving on

I have to admit, the Covid ‘vacation’ has made me reexamine the way we do things, as families and as a community and a society. I’m an observer. I watch and listen and learn about how each of us work, as individuals. Sometimes, when the rum is flowing, someone tells a hilarious but embarrassing story […]

Word on the Street: The Great Realization

Word on the Street: The Great Realization

OK class … there’s a new teacher in the room. I’d like you to listen to what he has to teach us. This is Mr. Covid, and he is about to teach us all about our past and our future. Before we continue, I would like you all to watch a brief video called The […]

Word on the Street: It’s a Whole New World?

Word on the Street: It’s a Whole New World?

I’m about to explore a New World. A world post-COVID-19. We’ve all seen our lives change. Suddenly. And for way, way too long. Most of us have learned some new lessons – lessons which can only be learned through crisis: Wars, Great Depression, loss of friends and family. I’ll start with a rather weird story, […]

Word on the Street: The New Abnormal

Word on the Street: The New Abnormal

I have to say, County people have responded well to the coronavirus pandemic. Keeping a six-foot distance is clearly marked on the floor of the LCBO, which, thank God, is one of the few places open. And, if you’re going to have a pandemic, and isolate yourself from the world, you need only two things: […]
