Letters

‘Blah’ sign

Dear Mike:
Every time we drive by the “blah” sign on the eastern edge of Fort Frances, it just makes us wonder.
It is a very plain huge white billboard which says in boring black and green: “Fort Frances Boundless.” Way down in the corner there is a tiny “green” maple leaf—and that’s it!

Needs fixing

Dear editor:
Senator Lynn Beyak from Dryden sits on the committee studying C-51, the new law on national security.
While fellow senators like Grant Mitchell and Mobina Jaffer are asking to fix the faults in C-51, Ms. Beyak is silent.
She said her constituents are concerned that “the rights of terrorists” are taking precedence over the rights of Canadians.

Disturbed

Dear editor:
I have been in Fort Frances since 1997. I have been impressed with the calibre of talent at the Fort Frances Times, as evidenced by what you have chosen to publish day after day.

Delightful

Dear editor:
This year’s FFHS musical production of “Grease” was an incredible showcase of amazing talent, dedication, and commitment by the staff and students involved.
It was an absolutely delightful show from opening to closing night, and the local talent displayed was inspiring.

Slow down

Dear editor:
We understand that people who work as OPP officers have a job to do like the rest of us in this world.
To me, it doesn’t give them the right to drive like idiots through a small town like Emo at an excessive rate of speed.

Knee-jerk reaction?

Dear editor:
Please accept this open letter to Natural Resources and Forestry minister Bill Mauro.
Dear sir:
It was with sadness that I witnessed the latest attempt to address serious concerns regarding our Ontario moose herd. I am perplexed, not only by this apparent first step, but by the continued disregard for the seriousness of the problem.

Biblical truth

Dear editor:
Last week we had the privilege of attending a presentation by Dr. Eva Olsson at the Townshend Theatre.
Eva was born on Oct. 28, 1924 in Szatmar, Hungary. On May 15, 1944, she and her family were taken away in box cars to Auschwitz.

Local support

Dear editor:
I am proud to say that I have been with the Canadian Cancer’s Society’s “Relay For Life” committee for five years, serving as co-chair for the last four, as well as being a participant and team captain for more than 10 years.

Paddle for a cause

Dear editor:
In response to last week’s letter, “Frustrated,” I also have been a sponsor of the Canadian Cancer Society for many years and have provided financial support for the “Relay For Life” fundraiser, as well as a number of other national charities.
However, I also have become aware of how little money from the national charities is returned to support people in our district.
