Lasting impact

Dear editor:

I never realized World Teacher Day came until well after I got home from school.

I am a teacher for many reasons but the top reason is that there have been teachers who inspired me on this path. I wanted to take the time to thank those teachers, and without an idea how to do so, I opted to reach out through the newspaper.

Riverside buys new truck

Riverside Health Care's Supply Chain welcomed a new courier truck purchased with the assistance of $30,000 in donations brought in through the Riverside Foundation for Health Care's annual Christmas Appeal in 2017.

“The truck is a vital piece of equipment,” said Doug White of Riverside's Supply Chain.


Being born and raised in Fort Frances, and serving on council over the last four years, I am keenly aware of the issues that face our community.

As a human resources professional, I have extensive training and experience in the areas of active listening, relationship building, negotiations, and dispute resolution. All of these have been beneficial in my role as counsellor.


I am currently serving as a RRDSB trustee representing Fort Frances and Mine Centre. I have enjoyed this commitment and, if elected, look forward to another four-year term.

I have a strong governance background in education, where I chair the Audit Committee and am an active member of the Finance Committee, Negotiations Committee, and Joint Occupational Health and Safety Committee.


Hi, I am Ken Perry, your candidate for mayor in the upcoming election. I have lived in Fort Frances for more than 34 years and I truly call Fort Frances my home.

I relocated here for work, met and married, Laurel, my wife, raised our two boys, and started my construction business, seeing the prospects and opportunities at the time and now into the future.
