FYI (for your information), today I’m going to talk millennial. TBH (to be honest) it’s all about abbreviations and acronyms. This may be TMI (too much information) and a CWOT (complete waste of time) but BTAIM (be that as it may) feel free to CC (carbon copy) your BFF (best friend for life). IDK (I don’t know) why I chose this subject but from my POV (Point of view) and IMO (in my opinion) we need to know modern acronyms and abbreviations so we can communicate with PPL (people) better IRL (in real life) on whatever SMP (social media platform) we choose.
I don’t have a generic Air Miles card that I think can be used for any airline as well as merchandise. Correct me if I’m wrong but I haven’t studied up on it. I have had Aeroplan for years that is good for Air Canada and its partners flights as well as having a catalogue of merchandise rewards but I heard last week that Air Canada is going to be dropping Aeroplan in June, 2020 and launching its own loyalty rewards program.
As we begin another week of work and school in Saskatoon it’s a good time to remind ourselves that construction season is now in full swing and when driving we need to watch for signs. Speeding ticket fines triple in construction zones and start at $300. One day last week the police went looking for speeders in the construction zone at the intersection of Boychuk Drive and highway 16. In only two hours, 3pm-5pm, they handed out 50 tickets totalling $18,000 in fines.
One of our cherished freedoms is free speech. The ability to speak our minds short of provable hate mongering or slander is one of the reasons Canada is such a great country. One can’t be charged with blasphemy either, defined as speaking sacrilegiously about God or sacred things. Unfortunately, it is not so in some countries. A recent example is Indonesia where a court has sentenced the minority Christian Governor of Jakarta to two years in prison. Apparently he told voters they were being deceived if they believed a specific verse in the Qur’an prohibited Muslims from voting for a non-Muslim leader which led to an accusation and charge of blasphemy.
If you think provincial politics in Saskatchewan can be interesting, it’s a REALLY interesting game in BC; always has been. I phoned my dad in Victoria yesterday and congratulated him for accurately predicting the results of Tuesday’s provincial election. He may be 95 but his mind is sharp and he is a news hound who watches and follows the political scene at home, across the country and the world. I won’t tell you what he thinks of Donald Trump but you can guess.
