Tickled Pink

Thank you to the city administration and councillors for giving out 30 complimentary rain barrels. You have redeemed yourself with this nice gesture, you shouldn’t have to provide any receipts or expenditure explanations.

Tickled Pink

That the mayor has been caught. All seven councillors can not be wrong.

Feeding 250 a day, nice round number, possibly 80 to 90, I see them every morning. What this agency needs is some outside security to deal with the alcohol and drugs being consumed on their property, and an outside maintenance worker to litter pick the property and adjacent areas!

The Mustard Seed would receive more donations if it could provide receipts for tax purposes in an efficient, timely manner. I am seriously considering if I will continue to donate after the difficulty I had in getting a tax receipt.

There are many upstanding business owners here but for the most part the forgotten corner is unimpeachable.

We would be disappointed if the city books were opened, the amount of cobwebs and clutter would be shocking, especially when we saw the pittance corporations have paid for naming rights on the city-owned, taxpayer-built locations such as Big Marble Go Centre and Co-op Place.

If during hot months people would open their windows during night and close in early morning. Your electric bill wouldn’t be outrageous. It was 22C and neighbours had their air conditioning running all day.

The “truckers” block the borders and occupy Ottawa for three weeks and the police do nothing. A few university students set up tents and don’t bother anyone and the police go in with batons and rubber bullets. Clearly the police choose who they enforce the laws against and whom they don’t.

Yes, prices are going up. Last time I bought small foam paint brushes they were selling for $1.29 each. This time I bought the same ones and they’re selling for $1.99. When things go up by a few cents, OK, but up 70 cents, that’s not acceptable. Companies are gouging us.

Tickled Pink

Would be if persons locked up for crimes committed would have to get out and clean ditches and dog parks.

Ticked Off

This editor is a pain in my derrière. LOL, and his dad’s not too far back. (Editor’s note: We’re both devastated.)

Ticked Off

At an accusation of corruption in this section. To make a blanket statement that includes city council, business owners, lawyers and doctors? Pretty easy to do without providing any such proof, or having to sign your name to such a statement.

Ticked Off

At persons throwing lit cigarette butts out their car windows. Don’t be a flicking idiot.

Tickled Pink

At organizations that recognize that gender neutral bathrooms are dignified and a basic need.

One flight a day from Medicine Hat. Very poor. We have stepped back 100 years. Huge hindrance to economic development and attracting people. MH is becoming a backwater once again.

Tickled Pink

To learn why a building downtown tells people to shop at the Medicine Hat airport. There aren’t even any shops there. YXH is an International Air Transport Association (IATA) code for an airport, not the city located close to it. (Editor’s note: Sure. Using airport codes to describe cities has been around since social media sites like Twitter took off, as a way to shorten the characters used. Eventually it just became a common slang way of naming a city, so, in that sense, the mural is not at all suggesting shopping at the airport, but saying ‘Shop Medicine Hat.’)
