Bombers, wth?

About LaPo's firing. I would have given him to the end of the year. The guy has a two-year deal. Now you're just paying for him to do nothing.
And this team is not doing well in spite of LaPo, not because of him.
The problems start at the top. Pat Martin's son is a board member. What, he's going to talk union shop biz with the players? What a waste of a spot. Right along with David Asper, who like his sister is only good at spending other people's money.
Mack never brought in any decent players to fill the void left when they lost so many starters from last year. And he loves band aid Buck, who is a trooper but not much else.
And then there's CJOB vet Garth Buchko. He tries to silence the media. He forces the team to start the road for four weeks. He lies about the opening of the stadium.
If anyone should have been fired, it should have been that guy.
The board needs revamping. The GM needs to go. And they need a prez who looks after money, not after football. Cause radio hacks have no biz running a football team.

When is a loan not a loan

When it's given to a museum that's massively over budget, plans to operate deficits when it opens, and will never have the ability to pay it back.

All of Canada is paying for this shrine to the Asper family, and we are going to be stuck with a whie elephant - an ugly one at that.
Oh well I guess as long as the wine and cheese socialists have somewhere nice to make us all feel bad about ourselves.
Too bad that money wasn't used to actually help people in need, instead of cater to the rich elites like the Aspers.

Health care monopoly to end soon Started in Quebec, the most socialist province in Canada. Now a group from Alberta is challenging laws on limiting health care. It will happen slowly but some day we will have health care as good as Europe has. It's not right to limit health care. Opening it up will create jobs, prevent Canadians from leaving Canada for health care and lessen pressure on the public system.

Mb fails at health care The rationing of health care continues. It's a great system unless you need it It's especially great if you work for a health authority. If you need help? Sorry... You've got a long wait ahead. Or if you can't wait, you can go to another country. But hey, Canada's free health care is still best, right? Right?

Asper wants even higher taxes

Noted failed football stadium builder wants to jack up taxes even more. I guess if you are rich off dads money yet another tax hike won't hurt you as much as us. Asper needs to take a step back. All he knows how to do is cost us all money

The losses keep coming for Manitoba

Less retail sales. And now we have higher taxes. Interprovincial migration losses are piling up.
The deficit is nowhere near being balanced.
But hey, today's NDP tells us things have never been better.
I'd say we can do something about this  in 3.5 years, but it also looks like the NDP want to change the eleciton law again and hold the next election later so as not to have their election near the federal election.
Sigh. Let's just hope Alberta and Saskatchewan can keep paying for the NDP way of life in this have-not province.

Why should Winnipeg settle?

Let's see - new arena is too small, not enough washrooms or seats. Wpg settled.
New football stadium - funded through the back door, no roof, useless in winter. Wpg settled.
New waterpark - smaller than Edmonton. Same size and Grand Forks. Wpg settles?
Not yet. But think bigger people. You want world class, you go big.
The only time Wpg hasn't settled is for that useless museum no one's going to visit unless their teachers order them to.
Good luck getting parents to pay to send their kids to that depressing shrine to the Aspers.
