Does outrage from 1980 drift around until it can alight on you in 2019?

Spring’s arrival is slowly creeping in, with early sunshine hours and quiet streets in the village, as only the steam from Parmalat and those early morning breakfast seekers at Cup of Jo’s emerge before the remainder of the day takes hold. It’s proof that we’re lucky to live the way we do.

Sleeping is a wonderful experience. It does so many good things for your body and mind. It’s like dying, but without the commitment.

•••

The spring season means flooding in most places, and in more than one area basement. It’s funny to think that such a huge investment like a home is protected by an incredibly efficient $90 sump pump from the local hardware store.

The economy is important, as is quality of life. Marrying the two together is more than a parlour trick and not unlike herding kittens. Fun to watch, but not if you have been hired as the shepherd.

Truly it is a shame the Canadian Women’s Hockey League has folded due to economic hardship. Having a team in China will do that. There just aren’t enough Air Miles points to make that long trip efficient.

Hands up, now. Who is proud of the job being done by Stormont, Dundas and Glengarry MPP Jim McDonell and his fellow puppets in the Ford government? Are we truly ignorant enough to believe in the “fixing what wasn’t broken and breaking what didn’t need to be fixed” mandate?

•••

The constant tomfoolery at Queen’s Park these day makes it unsurprising that Ford places in the top three for lowest approval rating among premiers in Canada. Let him lie (see what we did there?) in the bed he has made.

•••

Government can’t even figure out how to do what a teenager does in high school – sell weed. Our premier was a dealer, so shouldn’t this be a slam-dunk? Maybe it would be easier if we only sold hash.

Who are these people waiting in line for the few pot shops to open? They certainly aren’t regular smokers who can either grow it themselves or find it anywhere on the street.

•••

If we wanted this pot roll out to go smoothly, we should have just let Tim Hortons sell it as part of their “roll up the rim” promotion.

It’s hard to complain about rebates from the government, but the new carbon tax and subsequent refund leaves both sides of the argument, for and against its implementation, confused and angry.
