My perspective - Dreams of cash up in smoke

It seems like it should be the punchline of a joke about governments, but it's the reality in Manitoba -- in the 2018-2019 fiscal year, the Province lost money selling drugs. When Manitoba Liquor and Lotteries (MLL) released their annual report for the year ending March 31, 2019, it showed a $2.4 million loss on cannabis sales.

Right in the centre - Canada must consider war with great caution

It's been a long time since the guns of WWI fell silent. One hundred and one years ago, in fact. Some of us are old enough to have known some WWI veterans. Most of us know WWII vets but, there are very few left with us. The Korean War was a much smaller conflict and it was almost 70 years ago. My brother was a Korean War vet, but he is gone now too. We have a number of military veterans with us who have served our country well in other places, in peacekeeping efforts, mostly in the Middle East.

This week, the Neepawa Banner & Press is publishing our annual Remembrance Day feature. While we're still about 10 days away from Nov. 11, since the feature includes information about area services, we wanted to make sure readers had plenty of time to make their plans.

Right in the centre - Western separation unlikely to happen, but...

In the days following the Oct. 21 federal election, the results graphically showed that the Liberal Party did very poorly west of the Ontario-Manitoba border. In fact, they didn't do all that great in Quebec either. For a federal party to be shut out of Saskatchewan and Alberta states loudly that their message is not going over well in those two provinces. The Liberals also lost seats in Manitoba and B.C. The cries of western separation came out loud and clear. There are rallies and conferences planned all over Alberta to discuss the steps toward separation.

My perspective - Urban versus rural

Details Published on Friday, October 25, 2019

We hear a lot about the east-west divide in federal politics, but that might not be the whole story. I read a column in a recent edition of the Moosomin World-Spectator about the urban-rural divide in Canadian politics and it got me thinking-- what if that's the cause of much of the divisiveness we see today?
