A couple of stories caught my eye today:
Canadians to be paid for medals.
Other countries have been doing this for years but Canada hasn't really done it. My first reaction is that I don't like the idea. But on the other hand...most of the athletes aren't really well funded and in order to be a "winner", you don't have a lot of time to make much money. My only beef would be that I think this would mean that NHLers would get that extra cash for winning a medal. I would hope they'd donate it back to an organization that supports the elite athletes that really need it.
The other story that caught my eye was this one: NS bylaw will ban smoking in cars with kids.
It is about time- way to go Nova Scotia! Hopefully the rest of Canada will follow. It is unfair for ANYONE to be subjected to the confines of a car full of cigarette smoke. Kids can't even do anything about it. I hope no one complains about it because I think this is a wonderful way to protect kids.
