I am writing this letter as a concerned parent, taxpayer, and community member.
I am appalled by the senior administration at the Rainy River District School Board. These individuals make a living in the education system, but clearly care very little about the education of our children.
I want to take this opportunity to express my sincere thanks and gratitude to the countless individuals and businesses who were instrumental in making my recent spaghetti dinner benefit a huge success!
Diagnosed with a cancerous tumor in mid-October, I quickly was assessed and scheduled for surgery in Winnipeg this past week.
I was an attendee at the recent committee of the whole meeting of the Rainy River District School Board for its accommodation reviews.
I was stunned and unimpressed by administration’s recommendation to close Sturgeon Creek School and Crossroads School, and the building of a consolidated “super school” in Emo.
I was in attendance at the Rainy River District School Board’s committee of the whole meeting Nov. 19 regarding the accommodation reviews and left with feelings of disgust and sadness.
In response to the so-called victorious win of our township council in getting the provincial government to “allow” us, the ratepayers and residents of Sioux Narrows-Nestor Falls, to pick up the financial losses of Caliper Lake Provincial Park for the foreseeable future.
We would like to thank everyone who donated their time and treats for our “Hallowe’en Haunted Backyard,” including friends, volunteers, and Coach Wayne and the Lakers, but especially the people who vandalized our place after the event.
We appreciate their effort. But with the help of our Lakers’ team, my place cleaned up pretty good.
The council of the Township of La Vallee feels it is important to add information to the article in the Nov. 6 issue of the Fort Frances Times regarding the school accommodation meeting which was scheduled for Nov. 19 at La Place Rendez-Vous.
The Associates of Ste. Marguerite d’Youville held another successful coat drive.
Thanks to all the generous people who came with coats, hats, mittens, and boots.
But I also would like to thank the town for the use of the East End hall and Richard at McTaggarts for the use of the coat racks.
Please accept this open letter to the Senate of Canada.
As I see it, as the final “court of appeal,” your task is to protect the rights of all citizens against the oppressive power of the state.
All that I can say is that the walking dead (zombies) made the front page twice in the Fort Frances Times, which only shows that the managing editor is hard up for true front-page coverage.
There might have been 400 curious people at the event, which was a drop in the bucket compared to the many people who were sane enough not to go.
