I didn’t know that in our fair city people could now pay for transportation for free. We frequently come across people who seem to think “the rules don’t apply” because they “swipe” their cards past us and load themselves with no consequences.

The practice is prevalent on Rideau Street, just in front of the Cadillac Fairview Concourse that was once the pride of our city. I understand that drivers shouldn’t risk themselves and challenge these qualified entrepreneurs, but for the rest of us, the types that play by the rules in old school is annoying.

Ottawa Sun, what do you say? Was there a free pick-up when you weren’t looking? Can you throw a Presto Card without any consequences?

look in the mirror

Canada might have been in a much better position with regards to rising costs had it not been for the government’s poor decisions being widely supported. If you’re out of the zone, look in the mirror and say, “I was a part of it by aiding stupidity.” I just hope you make a decision.

Reminder here

Re: August 23rd, Teacher Reality Check, Letter

Two of the best newspaper reporters I’ve had the chance to read, Eric Nichol and Charles Lynch, made remarkably similar statements. They said the first thing they do almost every day is read the news sheets of their competitors, not just their own publishers. This allowed them to see what was really going on outside their scope of interest, they said, and prevented estimation errors.

Accurately emphasizing the absurdity of the request, the above letter provides an excellent example of the reasoning of the old scribe. I won’t mention the contents of the letter, but I will refer to the comment written by the editorial department, “Sunshine, remember how many teachers are on her list.”

On March 25, Antonella Artuso of the Toronto Sun wrote: Toronto Sun. “

Obviously, the person who requested that reminder doesn’t read the publisher. Sir or Madam, you remembered.

Follow Fauci’s Lead

Canada’s Chief Public Health Officer, Dr. Teresa Tam, has said new variants may emerge when it comes to COVID, and “potential” is the key word. These are the more terrifying tactics waged on the public by medical personnel who have contradicted themselves since the start of the pandemic.

Perhaps the good doctor should move on like her counterpart Southern Anthony Fauci. Fauci, too, was complicit in sending mixed messages to the point where he wasn’t really taken seriously.

(It’s as if COVID is a whole new virus that they’re still learning more about.)
