Dear editor, We are in the darkest hour in Canadian history. Our future as a democracy once admired by many worldwide is at stake. The battle of Canada has begun. It is being led by a citizen acting on behalf of foreign interests; Klaus Schwab’s World Economic Forum, their Great […]

Re: Allan Bradbury’s truck rally article Like anti Covid truck supporter Rolf Giessler who condemns PM Trudeau comparing protesters to Nazis my father had cousins in the third Reich but he was enrolled in the Canadian Army so perhaps I have a broader perspective about democracy than Mr Giessler .

Dear editor, I have cancer. My cancer is called multiple myeloma (also known as myeloma) and it is the second most common form of blood cancer. Have you ever heard of it? Every day, an average of 10 Canadians are diagnosed with myeloma, a number which has been steadily increasing […]

Dear Editor, On Wednesday January 12, 2022, I was able to hear some of the Local Planning Appeal Tribunal (LPAT) hearing regarding rezoning of the property at 850 5th Street East (formerly St. Michael’s School) and concerns over the plans that the Social Services Board have for it.

My […]

Dear editor, As I am pushing towards 99 years of age I thought it would be a good idea to write you one letter before I lose most of my bells and whistles. I am concerned that the International bridge is going to be a headache for every one in […]

Dear editor, It is always a sad thing to witness the ‘fall’ or ‘failure ’of another. Most often two things may happen. I may choose to gloat in the ‘sin’ of the other and possibly feel superior, or I can choose to recognize that we are both fragile beings capable […]

A message from the Royal Canadian Legion: The Royal Canadian Legion strongly condemns the shocking actions of protestors who encroached upon the National War Memorial in Ottawa on Saturday.
