Letters to the Editor


Plans are a safety risk

To the editor: Further to numerous recent letters to the editor, the writers and the public in general may not be aware that in the early 1990s (excluding the Copenhagen/Hodder intersection) the provincial government saw the necessary need, conducted

EDITORIAL - Vote should go online

We can now shop, bank and even pay our federal taxes online. Eventually we will be able to vote online. City council, however, in an odd 8-5 decision Monday decided voting online, by phone or mail would have to wait at least another couple of years.
