Dear Mr. Behan:
Re: Aug. 14/01 front page story, “Town settles with Mihichuk.”
To set the story straight, the fifth paragraph indicated, “The matter was discussed behind closed doors last night [Aug. 13], followed by a unanimous vote in open council in favour of the settlement.”
The reporter credited with writing/reporting the story (Reuben Villagracia) was not present, however, Jack Tynan was. Mr. Tynan did not pass along the correct information, as mine was the only dissenting vote in a recorded “majority in favour” vote.
I send this letter to the editor to set the record straight, and to chastise the newspaper for not ensuring the facts were correct before printing them.
Thank you for your time.
Councillor, Town of Fort Frances
