OPEC Holding the World to Ransom


The recent jump in oil prices and the controversy about Canadian Supply Management under attack by Mr. Trump makes me wonder who is running the Canadian economy.

What does OPEC (Organization of Petroleum Exporting Countries) and Dairy Farmers of Canada (DFC) or any other of our supply-managed commodities have in common?

During the period prior to 1999, prices for petroleum products hit rock bottom because of over-production.

Concerned About Condition of Georgian Trail

Dear Editor,

I had a letter going to you on the condition of the Georgian Trail but in my recent ride on August 13 there was a change on the trail. I will explain as I go along, so here goes.

I rode my scooter to Lora Bay in July, hoping I would not run out of power. From Christie Beach to Lora Bay and to Thornbury is maintained by the Town of Blue Mountains. The difference in maintenance of the trail is like night and day. Blue Mountains side is in excellent condition.

Community Continues to Mull Potential Library Options


In a recent issue of The Independent one of your readers suggested moving the library into Meaford Hall and moving the Hall art into the library, and then turning the library into an arts centre complete with gallery.

On the face of it, this seems to be a great idea. The library would still be central to the town and we would acquire an arts centre which I believe would be a wonderful drawing card for visitors. Furthermore, we wouldn’t need to buy more property. This makes a lot of sense all round, but somehow I suspect there would be snags. For instance, is there enough room in the Hall, given the fact that when there are live performances people need space to mix and mingle during intermission?
