Heads ought to roll at Canadian Heritage

Re: Trudeau authorities declare outrage at ‘anti-racism’ guide they have been praising as not too long ago as April, Aug. 22.

I used to be indignant and disgusted  after studying in regards to the full incompetence of Canadian Heritage in awarding an “anti-racism” contract to a blatant antisemite who has been spreading hatred for greater than 20 years. Ahmed Hussen, the minister accountable for Heritage Canada, should take full accountability for this fiasco and instantly  submit his resignation.

Premiers have a poor health-care file

Re: Federal assist wanted to reform well being care, say premiers, Aug. 22.

Is well being care damaged? You wager, and Doug Ford, with a couple of different premiers, is trying to repair it by loudly letting us know nothing’s off the desk. That’s not excellent news for public well being care.

However why is it damaged? For many years, premiers have demanded increasingly more in federal funding for well being and schooling whereas utilizing each as footballs, holding again funds, underfunding and diverting funds to pet tasks, or just letting monies sit to allow them to, subsequent election, level to the excess they created. They’re like privateers with the general public dime, spending their share nevertheless they like.

The destroyers of well being care will peddle the road that directing cash in the direction of non-public care suppliers is smart as a result of that is extra environment friendly. They only by no means clarify at what price, although it’s clear to members of the family who misplaced an aged beloved one in a privately run long-term care residence.

Repair the Carlingwood bus stops, please

I’m writing to complain in regards to the latest elimination of three bus stops at Carlingwood shopping center.

As a result of building the stops near the procuring centre essential entrance and Loblaws have been relocated to current stops close to Carling Avenue. You need to stroll a good distance via the car parking zone to achieve these stops, which would not have any seating or shelter from the solar or rain.

This association was clearly an afterthought. The mall and OC Transpo might have supplied enough signage, seating and/or bus shelters to accommodate the many individuals who take the bus to the mall, together with a sizeable variety of seniors and folks with disabilities. The current stops are a sign of the automotive mentality that pervades Ottawa procuring malls and a scarcity of foresight on the a part of OC Transpo. Development is inevitable however consideration for transit customers doesn’t essentially observe.
