Moose Country Minute – April 26 2014


What does the upcoming Ontario election have to do with the opening of bass season?

Well, for me, it means lots.

If the NDP helps the Ontario PCs bring down the Liberal budget on May 1 – and it is looking more and more like it will — then, on June 26, I will be either be the director of communications for Premier-elect Tim Hudak or I will be looking for a new job.

But, regardless of that, two days later two things will happen: The bass season will open, and I will be celebrating a birthday that will no longer require me to have a licence to fish in Ontario.

Where in hell did that time go?

I do not feel like a geezer. My energy level is not geezer-like. When I look in the mirror, I do not see a geezer looking back at me, and I have a schedule and responsibilities that no true geezer could handle with any degree of succes.

Yet the birth date on my driver’s licence says I will soon become an official geezer  – a quote unquote, senior citizen.

Must be some mistake?

As for the opening of walleye season this year, well, I will have to give that a pass – not because I am too cheap to update my licence but because I will too busy helping bring down a government.

But, hey, somebody’s got to do it.
