According to The Royal Bank of Canada website, “By 2028, projections suggest thatapproximately 700,000 trade workers will retire.” This means more workers will be leaving the field than entering. Sadly, we are seeing the effects of this starting to impact our economy. This could be an opportunity for women to […]

I have never known a life without technology. Growing up we had tv and as I got older, tablets and smartphones. It’s crazy, in the past 13 years, how advanced and fast the world is changing around us. Sometimes I wish I was born in a generation with no technology […]

What makes us unique? There are many different aspects that make up how a person acts, looks, and behaves. It is important for people to know where they come from and how their cultural background influences who they are. Growing up, I was extremely blessed to have caring adults like […]

Dear editor, I can’t say I blame Mayor June Caul for not running again. All the bullying and threats of lawsuits plus harassment makes for a very toxic environment. Other councillors have also had to put up with the same treatment. Who wants to be working with that kind of […]

Well, most time after the August long weekend we would be celebrating the end of haying. Not so this year. I would celebrate 3 or 4 days in a row without rain at this point. Our fields are wet, but we continued to cut. I thought we might have a […]

A volunteer is someone who has no more time in a day than others. They are people just like you and me. Some people may dislike volunteering and some enjoy it. Now whether you like it or not, the world runs on volunteers and that’s a fact. I happen to […]

Dear editor, Congratulations to Mayor June Caul! A well-deserved retirement from a position that has had many ups and downs over the past eight years. As her friend, I have seen the results of both and supported her through it all, as have her family and community members. When she […]

Dear editor. The familiar sound of a passenger train can once again be heard in areas of Northern Ontario that are served by VIA Rail Canada. The Crown corporation officially restored passenger rail services to pre-pandemic levels after more than two years of on again, off again, limited or indefinitely […]

Since hearing reports of tornado activity near Sioux Narrows-Nestor Falls, I have been in constant communication with local leaders and government officials to initiate supports. We are employing a whole of government approach to ensure community members have the resources they need. We are thankful that no injuries have been […]

Dear editor, After rereading the Fort Frances Times interview with the (IJC) international joint commission people on June 15th, I found their answers extremely infuriating. When I hear statements like the headline ”little could be done to avoid the flooding”, “opening the gates at the dam earlier in the year […]

Dear editor, Congratulations to our neighbours south of the border are in order for the overturning of Roe v. Wade on the 24th of June. This was a step in the right direction that ought to be celebrated from coast to coast. I hope that this will serve as a […]

Dear editor, I would like to start this letter off by saying we do not give the young generation enough thanks for the good they do. But I do, and this is why. The elderly really need help sometimes, in doing different things in life, and the young generation hold […]
