LETTERS: Bring bold ideas

The incoming Liberal government has an opportunity to initiate some bold ideas.

The incoming Liberal government has an opportunity to initiate some bold ideas.

The elimination of the Senate allows the Senate chambers to become a hostel for the young or young families visiting Canada’s capital, Ottawa.

The Senate chamber also has room for the Skaha Lake proposed waterslide for year-round activity for the kids while visiting Ottawa. Moving the waterside to Ottawa from Penticton would remove a thorn in the side of Penticton residents originally conjured up in the Tower of Babel. The kids joyous voices in the chamber would set a happy tone to a country that was previously embarrassed and lulled by the shenanigans and snoring of the former privileged transients.

Canada’s legalization of marijuana could shape a peaceful middle east policy. Such as dropping endless bales of pot on ISSL in Iraq. They may try it and they may like it. This could bring a permanent lull to hostilities in the middle east. Everything else has failed.  In an election. “what a difference a day makes!”
