Letters to the Editor


Travel grant woes

To the editor: I am writing this letter in hopes of saving other Ontarians from the disappointment and anger I have been subjected to. In September 2009, a close friend became the victim of a significant medical emergency.

Crime not police's fault

Let the electioneering begin. On Monday night, former Coun. Bill Scollie appeared before council for a deputation on crime rates in the city.

Perils of proroguing

To the editor: There is, for good reason, a lot of enthusiasm across the country as the groundswell against Stephen Harper’s cynical shuttering of parliament continues to grow.

Plan isn’t very green

To the editor: Our current water rates have contributed to a decline in consumption of 23 per cent. That’s the good news.

Holodomor horror

Most of us are aware of various atrocities in the history of mankind. Our ability to inflict incredible horror on each other is as old as man himself.

Keep the course

Once again the city’s golf courses are coming under fire. Councillors, arguing against a tax-supported model, brought up the notion of selling one course – Municipal – to save the others.

Great show in Kakabeka

To the editor: Boy, did a lot of folks ever miss a great show. The Kakabeka Legion held an evening of great food and wonderful entertainment on Friday, Nov. 20 and Saturday, Nov. 21.

Harper’s hidden agenda

To the editor: So this man, Stephen Harper (I can no longer call him Prime Minister) has once again aborted the democratic process of our Parliament by a second prorogation.

Prorogue’s true meaning

To the editor: Canadians are justifiably upset and concerned by Stephen Harper’s prorogation of Parliament. It is the fourth time in just three years that the Prime Minister has shut down Parliament.

Private sector disappears

To the editor: It appears to me that one very important link has been missing in the makeup of the past four years of progress in the City of Thunder Bay.
