Must See Scene: Rakesh and Sulekha are discussing how to change their parents’ mind from mulishly repeating, “Ye shaadi nahin hogi” (This marriage will not take place). Rakesh is confident that they will marry and tells Sulekha, “Love will beget love. This marriage will happen!” Full of sweet charm, their conversation is followed by the delightful song, Sun le tu dil ki sada..

The Leduc Representative’s November 14 edition provided excellent coverage of the November 10th public hearing for the draft Community Standards Bylaw.As I mentioned in a letter to the Editor the previous week, a municipal bylaw is only effective if it can be readily understood by those it governs, is reasonable, and is consistently enforced. If not, creating them is a waste of valuable staff time.The draft Bylaw, as designed, was poorly worded, “pretty vague” according to one alderman, and “contradicted itself” in a number of areas. Quite frankly, there was little originality and forethought in this Bylaw and, in fact, it appeared to contain recycled content from other municipal bylaws in Alberta that have generally been difficult if not impossible to enforce.The people of Leduc and Alberta are part of a civil society that has evolved over a 100 plus years and established certain norms and expectations of its citizens, that it hopes will be displayed in public.

People know when there is no law enforcement prescence at times and you can see alot of drivers going 20 mph or more over the posted speed limits. I like the back road but there always seems to be people tailgaiting and trying to run people off the road. Maybe it is time to start impounding the cars of owners who are repeat violators to send a message.

Demolished. That one really hurt. One of the last, original, authenticly preserved, genuine 1920 shop interiors, unnecessarily knocked down to make way for a parade of bland, slick units. And here’s where all that gets us: Stephen Harper’s perennial ministerial heavyweights, in no particular order, were the late Jim Flaherty, John Baird, James Moore, Jason Kenney and Peter MacKay. With all five gone (Mackay may yet declare for federal leader, but has not done so) and Harper himself, of course, gone, the party has entered uncharted territory. It’s an astonishing turn of events, viewed from the perspective of a couple of years ago; and a far cry indeed from the future Conservatives envisioned for themselves when the kid with the hair and famous last name declared for Liberal leader, eons ago in 2012..
