Stand up and be heard

Dear sir:

Tomorrow (June 18) will be the most important outdoor recreation and potential economic impact day ever. Why? This is the day you are given the chance to voice your concerns in regards to how we will manage our forests and lakes.

Special school

Dear sir:

Thank you for the opportunity to publicly express my gratitude.

It is with mixed feelings that we are leaving the Rainy River District. We have met many wonderful people, enjoyed neighbours “second to none,” and played in one of our country’s most spectacular outdoor recreational areas.
