BACK THE BLUE
Our law enforcement officers have been doing their duty in protecting and showing they care. What do we do? Criticize. The dog gets excited and is gently kicked. An officer is at a peaceful protest. I didn’t see riot gear or violence in the mall. Maybe we should turn our phones to our faces and ask: “How have I been protecting my community or involved in the betterment of my community?” I have a challenge for you. Next time you see one of your officers in your community why not stop and thank them for their watchful eye in your community. It might just make their day.

CUT ’EM LOOSE
Lorne Gunter is absolutely correct in saying that these two mail carriers are breaking the law. Who are they to decide who gets the Epoch Times, published by the Falun Gong, or who doesn’t? This sort of censorship by civil servants is tantamount to totalitarianism and both of these carriers should lose their jobs immediately. They are employed to deliver the mail, not screen it and any act of an infringement on someone else’s rights and their civil liberties is criminal behaviour.

BAD SHOT, JUSTIN
The Liberals’ new gun control legislation is nothing more than desperate political electioneering at the expense of law-abiding Canadians. Justin Trudeau’s view lacks any amount of research. Statistics Canada’s own Homicide Report reveals that there were 11,970 homicides in Canada between 2000 and 2019. Of those, some 3,870 or 31.8% were killed by guns. Regrettably, another 3,774 or 31.5% were stabbed to death. It would therefore appear knives are as much a deadly weapon as any gun. A more appropriate solution to safeguarding the Canadian public would be to automatically imprison persons found on the street armed with weapons such as guns and knives.

BLAH, SHAME, BLAH
Re: Reuters article “Cold Snap leaves millions without power in Texas.” What a dishonest puff piece and shame on the Sun for reprinting this gaslighting garbage. Quick research shows the power shortage came from frozen wind turbines that were unable to operate for some reason in the extreme weather. Turbines installed to replace reliable generation. But I guess no one wants to mention “green” isn’t perfect. Better to spin it as some climate emergency that couldn’t have been dealt with in any conventional means like our gas generators here operating in lower temps for weeks.

(Gaslighting? Sure you don’t want to throw in a dog whistle, too? The Texas situation is a failure on many fronts, only partially due to green energy.)

MAYBE NEXT TIME
Oh Larry, Larry, Larry. Sounds like someone might’ve tried out for the fire department once upon a time and didn’t quite make the grade?! Better luck next time, Larry.
