I read about the swap sheds being closed, and I wonder why, with all the smart people in our community who are supposed to be finding ways to help the poor, that they would even consider closing the swap sheds. The swap shed is probably, hands down, one of the best ideas this community has ever had to aid the poor; not to mention recycling.
With the release this week of the video showing the taser death of Polish immigrant Robert Dziekanski, the debate surrounding the use of the police tool has resurfaced. The death of Dziekanski, however, should be an indictment of how the police handled the matter, not whether the police should be carrying tasers.
With municipal elections coming just over a year from now, we can expect those who hope to win, or retain a seat on council, to begin seeking greater public awareness of them and their positions. One of the interesting things to watch is who will try to become Mr. or Ms. Green. The environment remains a hot issue and is unlikely to diminish in importance for most voters. It is just too big a political plum to pass by. Being green beats apple pie, motherhood and kindness to small children.
