Hyperloop is pie-in-the-sky

Re: Province signs pact with firm seeking to build 1,000 km/h link between Calgary and Edmonton, Aug. 25

I just wanted to thank the Herald and the UCP for the great laugh I had this morning while reading this article. Pie-in-the-sky, ain’t-ever-gonna-happen ideas like this one are generally encountered on the first day of April each year, but given the sad state of the world, this one was greatly appreciated. Maybe next time the UCP could invest in a teleportation device? Thanks again for the chuckles!

Empty high rises should be used for schools

Back to school with little or no distancing or precautions? Is the government mad? Will all the teachers and staff live in their garages for the school year? Several weeks ago, I wrote the premier suggesting empty downtown high rises be used to distance high school students. This would allow all the elementary and junior high students to distance into the emptied high schools.

Time, thought and money are required to ensure the safety and health of our children. They say it takes a village to raise a child and, apparently, an ego-centric government to destroy them.
