Just my vote about Rogers buying out Shaw: No! No! No! If Friday was anything to go by, merging and having one less choice for consumers is not in the public’s best interest. I think people should have more choices, not less. Thanks for letting me vent.

OFFLINE

If the U.S.’s claim that they could take Russia off the internet at any time is true, why haven’t they done so? With the recent fiasco of the Rogers outage as an example of the ensuing damage done to the economy, wouldn’t this give Russia more pause than the oh-so-scary capture of oligarch super yachts? It’s time Russia was forced from Ukraine – too many lives have been lost and destroyed by this unjust invasion.

STAND UP PREEMS

Brian Lilley is absolutely correct: The premiers must stand united against another one of Trudeau’s destructive climate ideas (“They must stand their ground,” July 11). Just as everything Joe Biden has done in the past 1 1/2 years, everything Justin Trudeau has done is equally wrong and bad. And destructive. This latest hair-brained scheme to limit fertilizer use is one of the worst yet. It will not solve a thing. Nada. Zilch. Killing pipelines — wrong. Shutting down Canada’s energy abundance during a world energy crisis — wrong. Carbon tax — very wrong. Farcically reducing fertilizer use to supposedly reduce greenhouse gas emissions — wrong again. Let’s have less eco-radicalism and their fantasy ideas, and more real world and practical solutions. Reducing crop yields, raising the price of food, and effectively killing off farming is simply wrong.

ROB FORD GOT THINGS DONE

Around 15 years ago, my mom was having an issue with repairs to her apartment and contacted her councillor, Rob Ford. Was called back next day, asked if Ford can see the problem. He was there in two days, saw the problem, said it will be fixed within six weeks, and it was. Two years ago, I was having a problem with my GST. Contacted my federal MP by phone, only received an automated response. Finally got a computer and wrote him. Was told to send a phone number, and did. Weeks went by and nothing. I live in the riding of Beaches-East York. No wonder Rob remains one of the most beloved politicians.

CHECK YOURSELF OUT 

I was shopping at Walmart and there were no cash-out lanes available. Everyone was being directed to the self-cash-out section. Is this a new corporate cost-cutting initiative? First, they stopped bagging, then they did away with bags, now self-cash-out. What next? I, for one, refuse to use self-cash-out because it causes job loss.
