Letter to the Editor

No experience necessary?

Dear editor:

Not too long ago, I awoke to find a trickle of water coming from a broken shower head in my bathroom. I immediately decided that I needed a plumber.

When the hail storm damaged my roof, I called a carpenter with the skills to solve that problem. When my car starts making strange noises, I take it to a mechanic.

Lacking ‘intelligence’

Dear editor:

This past summer, while at the cabin with my young daughter, I had the pleasure of listening to CBC’s Vicki Gabareau. One interview in particular has stayed with me.

Gabareau was interviewing an American author, and they were discussing his research findings that could, in part, explain the education dilemma we now face in Ontario.

Warm hospitality

Dear sir:

It is with my greatest pleasure to submit this letter of thanks to the town of Fort Frances for the outstanding warmth and hospitality I had experienced during my stay.

Brinkmanship

Dear sir:

Premier Harris is playing a dangerous game of brinkmanship.

Ontario CUPE members continue to prepare for a province-wide walkout as the promised changes to Bill 136 appear to fall short of labour’s demands.

Gain or lose?

Dear editor:

I am writing to voice my concern about the impending government legislation on education in Ontario. There are many aspects of this legislation that I disagree with but I would like to focus on one aspect of it here.

Atrocity

Dear editor:

I feel compelled to write on behalf of the students I represent because many of them cannot communicate in conventional manners of speech or print. I am speaking of the many children in our district who are identified as exceptional students. Please listen carefully so their silent voices can be heard.

‘Yes, Minister’

Dear sir:

When bureaucrats wish to do something stupid, they first make, and then quote, a stupid regulation to justify it.

I enclose a letter from a Mrs. Mahoud replying on behalf of Mr. Wilson, the minister of health, to letters of mine concerning Northern Health Travel Grants. Patients’ names have been blacked out; the letter is otherwise unaltered.
