Letter to the Editor

Of interest

Dear editor:

I was interested to see the Rolphton nuclear plant mentioned in the Budreau funeral announcement in last week's Times.

It seems to me that a lot of people would not know how this came about as an off-shoot of the nuclear plant at Chalk River.

Gender balance needed

Dear editor,

The theme for International Women's Day 2019 celebrated on March 8 of each year is #BalanceForBetter, which means we are working towards a world where gender balance will drive a better work experience.

Remiss

Dear editor:

I was at the special council meeting about the mill sale on Feb. 19 and there was no mention of Allan Bedard's deputation, which he supplied copies of to the mayor and all council members, in the write-up in the Feb. 21 edition of the Daily Bulletin, which I feel it is remiss of you not to report all the news unless it was an oversight on your part.

Downright stupid

Dear editor,

It seems inconceivable that the Ontario government would allow Resolute Forest Products to sell its Fort Frances mill for scrap rather than support a company that is willing to invest in the mill and the town of Fort Frances—and possibly provide hundreds of living wage jobs.

Unconscionable abdication

Dear editor:

I write regarding the provincial government's recent response to the shuttered Resolute mill in Fort Frances.

The minister of Natural Resources and Forestry has stated: “Negotiations regarding the future of the mill are between Resolute [Forest Products], Repap, and the community of Fort Frances, and we are not commenting further at this time.”

Real brainiacs

Dear Mike:

To the brainiacs at the American Automobile Association after seeing the headline in the Feb. 7 Daily Bulletin that read, “Cold weather cuts electric car range.”

Cold temperatures can sap electric car batteries, temporarily reducing their range by more than 40 percent when interior heaters are used, a new study by the AAA found.

Got nothing

Dear editor:

I am more than a bit concerned that Fort Frances did not see a need or several needs to attend the ROMA conference that took place in Toronto last week.

If there was ever an opportunity to attend this particular conference, this year was not the time to be absent.

Kudos

Dear editor:

Lately there has been negative publicity about long-term care facilities in Ontario.

My parents have been in Rainycrest over a period of six years. Unfortunately, my dad is deceased but my mother still lives there.

Making choices

Choices, good or bad, right or wrong, we all make choices every day. We don't know if these choices will bring good or bad into our lives.

But there is someone who does. Our Father God in Heaven who loves us, every one of us; so much so that He sent His son to die for us and made a way for us to ensure our eternity will be in Heaven.
