Letter to the Editor

Phoning it in

Dear editor:

Sarah Campbell has the honour of representing the people of Kenora-Rainy River in the Ontario legislature.

She is paid $116,500 per year, plus a housing allowance, to do so. And yet, it is increasingly apparent she cannot be bothered to show up for work.

So blessed

Dear editor:

The Associates of Ste. Marguerite d'Youville was blessed to receive so many coats, hats, mitts, and boots from this generous community.

They were distributed during our annual “coat drive” in late October.

Giant step

Dear editor:

On behalf of the “Friends” and staff of the Fort Frances Museum, I would like to thank everyone who attended and participated in the sixth-annual fundraising gala at the museum on Nov. 2.

Your generous support of museum projects is greatly appreciated.

Generous

Dear editor:

On behalf of the La Verendrye Hospital Auxiliary, I would like to thank everyone who attended out annual fall tea and enjoyed an afternoon of good food and fellowship.

A big thank you, as well, to the membership who so willingly gave of their time and talents to make the tea possible.

Toss ISDS

Dear editor,

Lots of coverage has been devoted to Prime Minister Trudeau's trip to Washington, D.C. last week and what that means for the future of NAFTA, however, little attention has been given to the dramatic NAFTA lawsuit here in Canada.

Dead fish

Sir:

Regarding the recent virulent hostility to Sen. Lynn Beyak—her critics obviously do not understand that only dead fish drift with the stream.

Yours faithfully,

A.J. Mackintosh

Fort Frances, Ont.

Discuss views

Dear editor:

I have never written a letter to the editor but the attempted character assignation of Sen. Lynn Beyak prompts me to do so.

When everyone thinks alike, no one is thinking. This is nothing short of a mob lynching.

Seeking tips

Dear editor:

On the morning of Thursday, Sept. 21, my son was struck by a vehicle as he was crossing the street on his way to school.

The woman left the scene and never reported it, so I am asking for the public's assistance in bringing this person to justice and raising awareness of a dangerous intersection, distracted driving, and the safety of our children.

Dying for tax cuts

Dear sir:

In an “open letter” to local MPs Don Rusnak and Bob Nault, published in the Sept. 13 edition of the Fort Frances Times, local Conservative Doug Judson continued his unfair and duplicitous tirade against Premier Kathleen Wynne.

Why he chose to write an “open letter” to federal MPs to complain about a provincial premier is not readily apparent.

Unexpected treasure

Dear Mike:

My husband and I were out walking by the river this afternoon [last week] when something in one of the flower beds by the marina caught my eye—a brightly-coloured rock lay in stark contrast to the dark earth.

My husband and I both admired the rock that was painted with a beautiful water scene.
