How Separation Can Work

At least one of my readers has a fixation with ‘Purpose’ and ‘Principles’ when launching a project as big as the creation of the Province of Prince Edward County. Our purpose is simple: To return decision-making power to the people of the County concerning their current operations and future. Our principles should be incorruptible: We [...]

It’s never too late to support community

I had the pleasure of attending a fundraising concert at the beautiful historic Picton United Church last week, held by local musicians and entertainers to help defray legal costs of the Prince Edward County Field Naturalists as they proceed to the Appeal Court of Ontario. Their very worthwhile goal is to keep Prince Edward County’s [...]

The Fault in Our Stars first really good film of the summer

The Fault in Our Stars first really good film of the summer

I’ve seen the first really good film of the summer. The Fault In Our Stars is a hugely successful book written by John Green and adapted for the screen by Scott Neustadter and Michael H Weber. I don’t know Green’s work, but Neustadter and Weber wrote 500 Days of Summer which is a little gem [...]

Separation: Some serious thoughts

Okay, the time has come. I have previously launched the idea of separating the County from Canada, largely as a gesture to embarrass the federal and provincial governments, and have some fun in the process.

Couldn’t watch Transformers 4 and 22 Jump full of wimp and wuss

Couldn’t watch Transformers 4 and 22 Jump full of wimp and wuss

OK so here’s the thing – Transformers 4 is about to become the biggest movie in the history of ever thanks to the Chinese box office. For a while now I have suggested that the domestic release was more an advance trailer for the DVD and nothing about the fact that North America has now [...]

What does it mean to be ‘County’?

The last column, and the two previous election columns, may not seem to have a direct connection. But they do. As for the election outcome, all of us in rural Ontario will continue to be ‘back-benchers’ at Queen’s Park. The only thing worse than a dictator who removes the County’s right to determine its own [...]

First, Let’s Define Ourselves

As you know, Word on the Street is designed to engage County people in conversation and debate. And it gets lots of that – often readers and bloggers take off with ideas and concepts that weren’t even in my column, but this works for me. I also learn from the ongoing opinions that I see [...]

Valedictorian Kurtis Brewster told graduates “Tonight is about tomorrow, the day after, and the day after that. I am going to [...]

A Million Ways to Die a lengthy SNL sketch

A Million Ways to Die a lengthy SNL sketch

  I’ve told this story before, but I forget enough in my daily life that it all somehow seems new. I had a friend who worked at the BC censor board. He was one of the last walls between the filmmaker and the public. Some self-appointed arbiter of morality. Or in Daryl’s case, whim and [...]
