Opinions * Laying It Out: Scattered thoughts on cops, cops, a bill and some crap

Some quick hits this week because I can't decide what to write about... "Defund the Police," means something different to everyone, it seems, and as per usual when people get stuck on semantics, the conversation ends up leading away from the point.

* It is time to talk Provincial Sales Tax

Most of us can appreciate the services that taxes buy, like highways without potholes for example, public schools that welcome every child in the community and a public health care system that won't bankrupt us when we get sick. Yet, we grumble about paying taxes. Nonetheless, Alberta is broke again thanks to the collapse of ... Read More ;4 days ago
