Comments on the phone book, a plane crash, retirement and a classic car, police cars and more
Here’s a sampling of reader feedback this week at capebretonpost.com.
Re: Cape Breton seniors call new phone book into question — July 22
Not just seniors have trouble with the size of the print. If the company wanted to save money by doing this they should have at least included a magnifying glass with each and every book.

Funny thing is most younger people don’t even use the book. They use the Internet. So they slapped their target demographic in the face.

First World problems, people. First World problems.
I do not like this new phone book. I am only in my 30s and find it hard to read.
Re: Man retires after 40 years on job — July 18
A real gentleman. He will be missed and one of many very good people in our health system. Thank you!
On your job you were kind, considerate, punctual and caring of the people you served and that is what counts. Best wishes to you and your wife on a well earned retirement.
— Sheila B.
Always pleasant. We could all learn from this guy. Happy retirement.
I always felt at ease when I’d see him at the helm. Many happy years ahead, sir.
Re: Poker community remembers Middle River man killed in plane crash — July 21 . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . Sad. — Dorothy B.
Re: CBRM, Mi’kmaq reach agreement on terminal development — July 22
It’s about time that the community started promoting tourism and cruise ships and forget about that shipping terminal pipe dream.
— Skeptical 101
While I am all for enhanced tourism we cannot live off of that alone. We don’t get ships in the winter and people visiting the island slows to a crawl. We need something for the winter months too and by expanding the harbour we might just get that in other ways.

Re: Should voting age be lowered – again? — July 22
If kids as young as 16 can vote, then they should lower the young offender status to the same age.
— Well only if
I’m all for ‘contributing’ citizens being allowed to vote. But if that’s your argument, Mr. Guy, why would you allow ‘non-contributing’ citizens (regardless of age) the same right to shape government policies which don’t affect them?

Re: Cape Breton Regional Police chief defends issuing vehicles to 13 managers — July 24
If they go to work or are called out for overtime, drive their own car to work and pick one up from the pool.
Happy not to be a property tax payer in this fiasco. I still feel the RCMP would have been a better deal financially.
This is so unacceptable in so many ways.
If the union spent their time working with their own people rather than stirring up a mess with staff and management, the whole organization would run better.
Call and/or email your councillors people and let them know how you feel about this.

Re: Sydney Mines man will bring his 1949 Hudson Businessman’s Coupe to car show — July 21
I have one thing to say to this man. WOW.
— Ed S.
Re: Louisbourg Seafoods owner as happy as a clam — July 21
It’s time we showed the rest of Canada and the world that the East Coast is coming back and maybe it’s time some of our young men and women should, too.
