Letter to the Editor

Fond memories

Dear Mr. Editor:

I am writing this letter to express how disappointed we are with the Ministry of Natural Resources' decision to close Boffin Lake to overnight camping.

My family and I have used that same spot for the past 18 years for our family's holidays. In that time, we have formed many friendships and have a lot of great memories there.

Disappointed

Mr. Editor:

I was disappointed to see that the OPP press release, headlined “Two teens charged in goat killing,” had been relegated to page A3 of the April 12 edition of the Fort Frances Times and did not include the names of those involved; even though both the Thunder Bay and Winnipeg newspapers did name these young men.

Real blessing

Hello:

I just wanted to express my sincere gratitude and appreciation for our MP, Don Rusnak, for taking a trip to Israel.

Israel, although small, is an important country in the world. It constantly is in the news and has endured much hostility from other countries.

Not worth cost

Dear editor:

Town council is letting us down by even considering the removal of traffic lights just to save a few hundred dollars, especially near an elementary school.

A four-way stop makes it even more dangerous for children to cross.

Reconsider cut

Dear Mike:

This letter is, in part, a response to Coun. Doug Kitowski's question in the Feb. 22 issue of the Fort Frances Times headlined: “Library hours may be reduced.”

Yes, Coun. Kitowski, there is something special about our library! In fact, the Fort Frances Public Library Technology Centre is special in so many different ways that it is difficult to know where to begin.

Reunion in works

Dear editor:

This seems to be the year for celebrations: Canada's 150th birthday and Elizabeth's 65 years as our Queen.

Sixty-five years ago, there was the building of the '52 Canadians Arena and our own Fort Frances Canadians won the coveted Allan Cup in this new arena. The present St. Mary's Church was built that year, as well.

Broken a promise

Dear editor:

Kenora MP Bob Nault says the federal government gave electoral reform “a good go” and that there was no consensus.

Wrong. A consensus of Canadians does want to change the electoral system.

Oozed hypocrisy

Dear sir:

It is always amusing to read the press releases from the Rainy River District School Board and the one published on Feb. 8 (“Student access to libraries enhanced”) was no exception.

It is always a question not of what are they revealing, but of what they are trying to hide. This one just oozed hypocrisy.

Opening dialogue

Dear editor:

I'm writing in response to the letter to the editor from Gordon Woollard in the Wednesday, Feb. 1 edition of the Times. My name is Angela and I am one of the owners of Rainy River Cannabis Collective (R.R.C.C.)

First, I would like to thank Mr. Woollard for taking the time to write in, opening a dialogue as I'm sure many folks around the area have questions.
