Saturday, October 25, 2014



Dear editor:
Oct. 19-25 is Canadian Foster Family Week, which is dedicated to honouring the foster families in Kenora-Rainy River Districts.
Foster families are essential and without the constant care and commitment our families provide, we would not be able to offer the protection that some children in our districts desperately need.

Sad day

Dear editor:
In response to the front page photo in the Wednesday, Oct. 15, 2014 edition of the F.F. Times.
It is a sad day in the life of a community when one of the largest pictures on the front page is that of zombies spattered in blood.
What are we saying to the rest of the community? Is everyone for this kind of “celebration”?

Not the time

Dear Mike:
Some of the comments I have both read and heard regarding the upcoming municipal election have prompted me to put a pen to paper and dash off a letter to the editor.
While hoping to clarify some of the things said to me, I also want to give my opinion and knowledge about certain matters.

Think about it

Dear editor:
I’ve written this letter a half-dozen times, and it comes across as either preachy or hypocritical at best—or a shake down at worst.
It’s not intended as any of these, especially the latter.


Dear editor:
Due to circumstances beyond our control, the annual winter coat drive organized by the Associates of St. Marguerite d’Youville has been cancelled.
Unfortunately, we were unable to secure a building to hold it.
We regret any inconvenience this has caused our valued customers whom we have served these past 20 years.

Return council

Dear editor:
I feel I must respond to the comments made last week on B93 regarding the Huffman subdivision.
The cost was not $2 million as quoted.

Please vote

Dear Mike:
I take this opportunity to say “thank you” to the mayor, council, and staff of the Town of Fort Frances.
Thank you for the efficient handling of the rising water this past spring and for thawing out the multiple frozen water lines in the winter.
These are two extraordinary tasks that indicate you have taken good care of us.

What seniors?

To the editor:
I would like to comment on one of the statements in Mr. Bedard’s platform as stated in the Oct. 1 issue of the Fort Frances Times.
When he states that “the seniors would like to run the senior centre themselves,” what seniors does he refer to and who is he speaking for?

Vote wisely

Dear editor:
As election time draws nearer, I thought it might be a good time to remind everyone to only vote for the councillors you actually want on town council.
We have the option to vote for six people but that doesn’t mean you have to vote for all six.
Ensure that your vote counts for your preferred choices and only choose the person(s) you really know and support.


Dear editor:
We stopped at the Duty Free store in Fort Frances to make a purchase as we were leaving Canada on Sept. 22.
But when we went back to our car, it did not start. The manager at Duty Free was most helpful, making phone calls to assist us with service.
The problem was resolved and we were on our way.
