Letter to the Editor

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.

Decline in services

Dear editor:

I have lived in Fort Frances for more than 55 years and have lived at Rainycrest LTC Home for the last six-and-a-half years.

When I arrived, I was gravely ill and would not be alive today if not for the caring staff at Rainycrest. For that, I am very grateful.

Deserve better

Dear editor:

Rainycrest has been closed to admissions since February, 2018 due to non-compliance with health and safety issues, as well as unmet staffing requirements.

Go Muskies!

Dear editor:

I am an older person and have to admit that I don't really understand the game of football that well. But I do understand, and can appreciate, teamwork when I see it!

Blessings

Dear editor:

The Associates of Ste. Marguerite d'Youville sincerely thank the community for providing the many coats and accessories that were distributed during our annual coat giveaway.

Many thanks to the Fort Frances Volunteer Bureau for the use of the hall and thanks to McTaggarts for the coat racks.
