Letter to the Editor

Opposed process

To the editor:

While I am not one to take part in premature electoral posturing at a local level, Mr. Douglas Judson, the PC nomination hopeful from Fort Frances, shared a number of inaccurate and/or incomplete details in his letter to the editor last week.

'Lest we forget'

Dear editor:

On this day (Nov. 11, 2017), I read with sadness the fact that only 14 percent feel that Remembrance Day is “somewhat” important and eight percent feel it is not very important.

They don't seem to realize that if not for the brave men and women who fought and gave their lives for our freedom, they wouldn't have much choice in what they felt or believed in.

Phoning it in

Dear editor:

Sarah Campbell has the honour of representing the people of Kenora-Rainy River in the Ontario legislature.

She is paid $116,500 per year, plus a housing allowance, to do so. And yet, it is increasingly apparent she cannot be bothered to show up for work.

So blessed

Dear editor:

The Associates of Ste. Marguerite d'Youville was blessed to receive so many coats, hats, mitts, and boots from this generous community.

They were distributed during our annual “coat drive” in late October.

Giant step

Dear editor:

On behalf of the “Friends” and staff of the Fort Frances Museum, I would like to thank everyone who attended and participated in the sixth-annual fundraising gala at the museum on Nov. 2.

Your generous support of museum projects is greatly appreciated.

Generous

Dear editor:

On behalf of the La Verendrye Hospital Auxiliary, I would like to thank everyone who attended out annual fall tea and enjoyed an afternoon of good food and fellowship.

A big thank you, as well, to the membership who so willingly gave of their time and talents to make the tea possible.

Toss ISDS

Dear editor,

Lots of coverage has been devoted to Prime Minister Trudeau's trip to Washington, D.C. last week and what that means for the future of NAFTA, however, little attention has been given to the dramatic NAFTA lawsuit here in Canada.

Dead fish

Sir:

Regarding the recent virulent hostility to Sen. Lynn Beyak—her critics obviously do not understand that only dead fish drift with the stream.

Yours faithfully,

A.J. Mackintosh

Fort Frances, Ont.

Discuss views

Dear editor:

I have never written a letter to the editor but the attempted character assignation of Sen. Lynn Beyak prompts me to do so.

When everyone thinks alike, no one is thinking. This is nothing short of a mob lynching.

Seeking tips

Dear editor:

On the morning of Thursday, Sept. 21, my son was struck by a vehicle as he was crossing the street on his way to school.

The woman left the scene and never reported it, so I am asking for the public's assistance in bringing this person to justice and raising awareness of a dangerous intersection, distracted driving, and the safety of our children.
