Letter to the Editor

Take action

Dear editor:

On Sept. 25, 2018, thousands of individuals, organizations, and institutions across the globe are taking actions for the United Nations' 17 Sustainable Development Goals.

We have signed up at http://www.act4sdgs.org/register/ and joined the network, and want to encourage others to do the same.

Affront to humanity

Dear sir:

I have been somewhat perturbed by the reaction of the media in reference to the recent diplomatic dispute between Canada and Saudi Arabia.

I am not referring to the Fort Frances Times. But throughout the news industry, in TV, radio, newspapers, and the internet, the reaction appears to be the same.

Outstanding work

Dear Mike:

I would like to take this opportunity to thank all the partners and sponsors of the Stewardship Rangers Program.

I wish to draw attention to the outstanding work of the ranger teams that participated in the pine marten nesting box project this summer.

In response

Dear editor:

This is in response to the letter of the editor entitled “Needles an epidemic,” which appeared in the Aug. 1, 2018 edition of the Fort Frances Times.

Choose to be tolerant

Dear editor,

It's not very often that you see a whole article devoted to a church service in the Times, so as a Pastor it was with much interest that I read a few weeks back, “Local church holds Pride service.”

Needles an epidemic

Dear Mr. Editor,

There is an epidemic festering in the Rainy River District and it is growing rapidly!

When scrolling through Facebook posts, one cannot help but see the posts from concerned citizens about drug paraphernalia and needles being found in Fort Frances and the surrounding area.

Back to the future

Dear editor:

Will Doug Ford please tell us what his carbon plan for Ontario is?

Stephen Harper never would admit that a levy—which he favoured—was the same as a carbon tax. Now one of his most fervent foot soldiers, Jason Kenney, is saying “yes” to a carbon tax or levy—to be paid by industries that emit carbon (Maclean's July, 2018).
