Premier Governs By Undoing Without Counting Cost


Thank you for another thought-provoking edition of The Meaford Independent (August 9, 2018).

I couldn’t agree more, both with your editorial on refusing to play the outrage game, and Jaden Calvert’s excellent letter decrying Ford’s cancellation of the Basic Income Pilot and reduction of our social assistance programs.

Our portly Premier governs by undoing, without counting the cost. His squandering of resources could help feed the poor.

Dare I confess to feeling...outraged?

Thoughts on Grumblers


I would like to respond to your recent editorial on the “Grumblers” of the world today.

Your editorial was 100% on the mark, and the reality of what you speak is evident on all corners of our streets, and even invaded our churches.

I wrote and gave a Homily years ago, that I have used so many times over the years it still echoes every day in my mind and guides my daily thoughts and actions.

Alternatives to Current Municipal Governance


Paris (2016 population, 12,310) is a community located at the spot where the Nith River empties into the Grand River in Ontario, Canada. It was voted "the Prettiest Little Town in Canada" by Harrowsmith Magazine. The town was established in 1850. In 1999, its town government was amalgamated into that of the County of Brant, thus ending 149 years as a separate incorporated municipality, but Paris remained the largest population centre in the county. While Brantford is located within Brant geographically, it is a fully independent community with its own municipal government.
