Dear editor, We can not continue to build bridges, construct buildings, cut our forests and pollute our environment including light and noise pollution without first becoming aware of the environmental impact of the area we are destroying along the way. Alarmingly it has been reported that we have 3 billion […]

Dear editor: I am responding to the March 23 editorial by Jim Cumming about the lack of diversity and working-age representation on council. I appreciate Mr. Cumming’s insights on this topic, but I respectfully believe that he – like others – has missed the mark. Calls for increasing diversity on […]

Dear editor, We are never too old to learn. Has that ever hit home in the last few years for me. The term ‘Doctrine of Discovery’ was alien to me until I heard Mr. Robert Horton speak at the Metis Hall a couple years ago. It was so totally new […]

Dear editor, I would like to express my thanks to artist Eric Keast for wanting to install a public art piece in Fort Frances. Mr. Keast wrote to the TOFF in January requesting a letter of support so he could apply for funding to create and install a fish/fishing sculpture […]

Every member agreed with the concept of removing barriers for a more diverse Council. I have always included and promoted relationships with all people in our […]

Dear editor, My initial excitement of seeing international border rules changed was short-lived. Three phone calls have clarified some of my questions. The statement in last week’s Times stated, “..fully vaccinated travellers will now have the option of using a COVID-19 rapid antigen test result (taken the day prior to […]

Dear editor, Frustration and desperation have resulted in my writing this letter, as well as one to Riverside Health Care and the NWHU. My brother is a resident of Rainycrest Home for the Aged. He has multiple health problems. His speech and vision are impaired due to a stroke. Many […]

Dear editor, I live on Sunset Drive and would like to acknowledge the great new sidewalk in our area. We only have to walk 1/2 a mile now to reach that walkway to then walk to the only park in our area. Since I have lived in this McIrvine area, […]
