Tickled Pink

A big thank you to our mayor, city staff, police, fire department and especially to members of the parks department for their great work during the windstorm.

At the arrogance of the re-elected mayor. You are there because of the lack of choice. I and others did not vote for your position.

Ticked Off

The previous Redcliff mayor not too gracious in his defeat, already criticizing his replacement,. This was the will of the people. Take a final bow, say goodbye and let the new mayor do his job.

A very nice couple came to vote at our polling station and then returned with ice cream treats for all the workers. Thank you very much.

With the 60s scoop settlement. Metis feel left out. What about the children from Europe forced to work in sugar beet fields? What about the British children sent to Canada by the thousands? When does all this foolishness stop?

Ticked Off

Get ready for higher taxes and higher utilities, people.

Went to my doctor in Redcliff today for my annual physical and there was a smorgasbord in the office. Coffee, doughnuts, sandwiches, wings. What a great doctor.

Ticked Off

City workers took four hours to plant four trees; I could plant four trees in half an hour.

Ticked Off

Some trucks are illegally dumping garbage in the mobile home park bins at the end of 13th Avenue SE for which residents have to pay a monthly fee.

At how well the trade show went. Especially one vendor who was especially generous with his sausage. I bought four packages because he was so generous. Great product.

My light purple astors are full of flowers and full of bees and for late October, that’s pretty good. They were able to handle the heavy snow and heavy winds. Good for the bees.

Ticked Off

To a certain radio station, get some different music. Quit playing such depressing music.

So the municipal vote turnout was 34 per cent. The mayor received roughly half the votes, so that’s about a 17 per cent approval rating — which is an F for failure in the eyes of the people.

Some of the big-time spenders are back on council. The union bosses are smiling today.

Ticked Off

At the potty mouth of a young man I observed in a truck taking up half of the handicapped parking spots. I took down his licence plate but haven’t reported him to the police — yet.

Ticked Off

At baseball teams that put the names of their players on the back of their jerseys. It should be about the name of the team on the front of the jersey, not the name of the player on the back.

Ticked Off

That there is no bus service in Ranchlands or Parkview area.

Ticked Off

Where are all the trees along South Railway Street. Did construction remove them; are new ones coming back? It looks terribly bare.

Ticked Off

I was annoyed at a recent hockey game at the Canalta when they played a baseball game on the jumbotron instead of the warmup. I did not pay to watch baseball, I paid to watch hockey.

Ticked Off

At how some employers have treated some of the volunteer firefighters during the last big wildfire. Have a heart!

Ticked Off

With people who complain taxes are high and then have hand out as soon as they have a tragedy. Where do you think this money comes from cause it doesn’t grow on trees. If you want federal/provincial help then everyone taxes rise.

Ticked Off

The opposition outside Quebec, especially from politicians, to the legislation on face coverings is disgusting. They are bemoaning a practice which has neither religious nor cultural significance.

Ticked Off

Our mayor should check apartment buildings that low income people have to live in downtown. Landlords don’t give a damn. These people deserve much better.

Ticked Off

Politicians are like diapers, they need to be changed often and for the same reason.

Ticked Off

With the Tigers games not been played on Saturday nights. Also miss the figure skating girls skating with the flags during the anthem.
