Brandon Sun (Newspaper) - June 27, 2002, Brandon, Manitoba A6 June 2002 OPINION 121st Year 157 OUR VIEW Economy needs more attention from world leaders There is certain irony in the fact stock markets have been tumbling all around G8 leaders while they tussle over foreign affairs matters during the opening of the Kananaskis Representatives of economic worlds leading nations have been focusing on matters outside their borders and trying to decide on the best advice to others on how to run their Right now they might be wiser to pay more attention to their own business and start getting affairs in order at Some socalled leading economies may soon end up behind the 8ball if their leaders dont get down to Prime Minister Jean in a homegrown leadership battle with his former finance has been trying to maintain some control of the summit He is determined to keep his aidto Africa package out in front for the world to see while President George Bush pushes his Middle East Chretien has nurtured this baby for some time and has been set to close the deal with others in the elite But Bush has been equally deter mined to seize the moment with his War on Terrorism H or With loud vocal support for a very expensive foray into Afghanistan still ringing in his Bush has failed to lis ten to notsosubtle messages of rejec tion arising from recent attempts to arrange change in Now he is also determined to enter the fray between Israel and the Palestinians in an effort to oust Yasser Those with experience in interna tional politics know only too well that battles in the Middle East are easy to enter but very tough and expensive to leave and that is why the White House is desperately searching for But Chretien and Bush have picked a very bad time to be competing for the attention of representatives from the in order to decide how best to tell other nations what to Fragile First World economies have been rocked by the 11 terrorist attacks and taxpayers have yet to see some very big bills from the military that will be coming their Prosperity can turn into recession very quickly in these touchy Every leader of the socalled G8 would be wise to take another look at home before venturing too far As discussions opened in North American stock markets slumped again to 11 There was more news of financial reporting scandals and bankruptcy particularly in technology Investors are starting to wonder who has been watching the financial watch dogs as profit predictions turn into heavy losses with bogus balance already bitten by the Enron debacle in the are obviously losing faith in to ability of business to look after itself and governments abili ty to govern No doubt Bushs report that his gov ernment would fully investigate will come as little I think its just another

had at least The bulldog saw the Mitchell dog in and as it land ed in front of him it caught the attacker by the The momentum of the Mitchell dog was such that its throat was torn Exit one Nothing for the clergyman to do but drive around to the front door of the Mitchell home and report that the mortal remains were in the back of the When I read that Brandon councillors were curious about the ownership of the and were pondering its I felt it was time for some serious The wall brought back a series of diverse I called Gordon a Vancouver lawyer known to and he recommended I call his uncle

order I am writing in response to the front page article on titled Dad realizes burning girls finger A 26yearold man and his wife had been having prob lems with their sixyear old daughter stealing their cigarettes and When this person found a lit cigarette on the floor his first quick and wrong reaction was to grab the child and touch the lit cigarette to her His defence His father had used the same this stopsmoking method is neither effective nor free of emotional injury to the A man who makes such a decision has proven to his child that he is not a daddy who will protect and provide A man who would purposely inflict burns on a frightened child because of his quick reaction most probably makes quite a few quick and wrong I wish that Judge David Coppleman had issued a stop smoking edict for both the man and his The compliance on the wifes part is inferred by the fact that she was unhappy with a sixyearold stealing her Just as in criminal offences where alcohol has been the fac tor behind a domestic dispute or public the offend er is ordered to abstain from alcohol and avoid the premises where alcohol is I strongly believe this couple should have been as compliance with his 18month conditional an edict stating that they abstain from smoking and avoid places where smoking There are still plenty of options for dining and entertainment where smoking does not As an adult who grew up in a home where quick and wrong reactions occurred multiple times on a daily I can honestly state that such a childrearing method only teaches the child that home is not thus perhaps the world isnt so safe I am pleased that the mans sentence includes cooperating with family services the wife should also be receiv ing counselling on appropriate and alternative childdisciplin ing methods as
