Letter to the Editor

Making a difference

Dear editor:

We've come a long way from where “it used to be,” when the warehousing of people with intellectual and other developmental disabilities was painfully routine.

The Province of Ontario closed institutional facilities and provided opportunities for people with intellectual and other developmental disabilities to enjoy living in their communities.

Ill-conceived policies

Dear editor:

Please accept this open letter to Thunder Bay-Rainy River MP Don Rusnak and Kenora MP Bob Nault:

Over the past several weeks, I have heard from countless voters in the Kenora and Rainy River districts who have asked why the Liberals are against small businesses and family-run enterprises.

Replace dam

Dear editor:

The Ministry of Natural Resources and Forestry is back visiting the dam at Esox Lake and their approach to it is the same as in 2003.

No photo-op

Dear sir:

Something needs to be said in response to the miserable article that the Wynne Liberals are sinking Ontario which appeared in the Aug. 16 edition of the Times.

Shame

Dear sir:

I visit Fort Frances every summer to stay with my sister

However, this year in particular, I noticed the sharp contrast between entering into the U.S. and Canada.

As you emerge through customs into International Falls, the area is pleasant and well-maintained

Very sad

Dear editor:

My four-year-old son and I were walking down Scott Street last Wednesday afternoon and saw all of the trees laying across the road.

He was really upset about it and said he wanted to write a letter to the editor.

Dear workers,

Why did you cut down all those trees? Please stop cutting down the trees.

Utter claptrap

Dear Mike:

I'd like to take a minute to respond to last week's column from the publisher (“Don't be ashamed of our colonial past”).

If you'll recall, I've previously referenced your writings as utter claptrap. You've given me the opportunity to do so again, Mr. Publisher. Thanks.

Deep gratitude

Dear Mike,

I would like to give dozens of bouquets to the Boundary Waters dragon boat club.

On July 1, their club volunteered to give free rides to the general public.

My son has cerebral palsy and is legally blind but the club members were so gracious and generous. They assisted Zachary into and out of the boat.

Plenty of washrooms

Dear Mike,

As we progress through the stages of life, between middle age and elderly, it seems that the two most important things that occupy our time is when and where will we obtain our next meal and where is the closest washroom.

Kinda goes hand-in-hand these days. I know as I am also there.
