Oh, I get the feedback. That's why I write and recite the daily commentary. It's here to spark conversation - get people talking.
Opinion, my opinion, is often one of the features of the commentary. I understand not everyone agrees with me. I don't always understand those who respond but I certainly respect them and their opinions and, in some cases, their passion for their community.
We've tackled some controversial and divisive issues over the years from the building of our new arena and field house to Daylight Savings Time to provincial and federal politics.
Funny then that the more light-hearted commentaries are the ones that seem to generate the most feedback. It was just a few days ago I shared some simple recipes for beets and Swiss chard. Well, I've received e-mails, text messages on social media and phone calls from listeners who want to share their recipes and love of food.
I've heard it said that "food is the ingredient that binds us together". I think it might be true.
