Plastic Bags Verboten? You Bet Your Bippy.

It appears that our prime minister can’t concentrate at a meeting. In fact, he doesn’t go to meetings. He needs to be spoon-fed information, eensy weensy bits at a time.

He looks at meetings as a tool to build relationships. That’s a fact as he made sure to build a relationship with Obama. Trudeau best take care with whom he hangs around as Obama’s legacy is slowly but surely fading into the sunset as Trump slowly but surely dismantles it.

But we digress.

If Trudeau actually took the time to go to a meeting he might actually learn something or find out information that may help him make a decision on something going on in his country. His lack of attendance and immature behaviour at meetings was pretty obvious when he totally dropped the ball in China, embarrassing both himself and his country. That, Blanche, would be Canada, which is also your country.

To those who voted for him, you best make sure you never need anything from him because a) he doesn’t care about it and b) he will never find out about it. Your tax dollars at work.

Beginning in January, lose your plastic bags when going grocery shopping. They will be verboten. You do know, Blanche, that you are saving the world by not putting your tomatoes in a plastic bag?

Individuals continuing to provide plastic bags in stores face fines ranging from $200 to $1,000 for a first offence and $300 to $2,000 for a subsequent offence.  Companies found in violation of the bylaw face fines of $400 to $2,000 for a first offence and $500 to $4,000 for a subsequent offence.

Stores have until June 5 to put this law into effect. Can we talk?

Who sat in a room and thought this up? When the United Nations actually does something concrete for the world, like going after China and India for using coal mines and polluting the entire world, talk to us. Until then, we will be hoarding plastic bags and making sure to wave them around to make our point.

If anyone wants to make a lot of money, figure out how to make a bio-degradable plastic bag. You will be an instant billionaire.

All those Trump naysayers best suck it up. Fueled by high consumer confidence and a robust job market, U.S. retail sales in the holiday period rose at their best pace since 2011, according to Mastercard Spending Pulse, which tracks both online and in-store spending.

Unlike in past years, when spending was driven by high-income shoppers, this holiday season a broader swath of the population opened their wallets, encouraged by rising wages and low unemployment, analysts and economists said. There is a lot more spending from the lower- and middle-income groups, while the upper-income groups are splurging.

You may not like Trump’s vocabulary or his tweeting, but the confidence level in the country is rising. People have jobs, they got bonuses because of the tax reform and they are overall happier.

All of this while the Democrats continue to whine about Russia’s interference in the election. Coupled with their total lack of leadership, Trump could very well spend eight years in the White House.

Blanche, are we the only ones who noticed Meghan Markel’s wardrobe transformation? Since she became Prince Harry’s future princess, she is dressing in royal ‘speak’ – conservative, covered up, very elegant in very expensive clothing. She looks radiant and fantastic.

Looks like Montreal’s new mayor is spending money on things that actually make a difference in people’s lives, unlike her predecessor, Coderre.

Public works is doubling the amount of salt and gravel they use on sidewalks as well as sending out many more snowplows to clear said sidewalks. Let’s see if she really follows through.

NDG will be the marker. If their snow is cleared quickly, we’ll know she means business. That neighbourhood is usually knee deep in snow for weeks after everyone else. Oh yes, let’s bet she will not shovel around those idiotic and grossly expensive granite tree stumps, one of Coderre’s many legacies.

Bundle up Blanche. We’re in for a long deep freeze. Brrrrr.

We’ll talk…
