Stop Harper's Mission to Remake Canada

E-mail Print PDF

Editor,

Kudos to Dave MacDougall for his brilliant letter ripping apart Harper and his government. (Letters to the Editor-Feb. 27). There was a time when I had at least a modicum of respect for conservatism, but this current pack of neo-liberal, anti-democratic werewolves puts real conservatism to shame.

I have just read Michael Harris' book, Party of One. It  provides a host of examples of the astonishing arrogance and destructive behaviour of the Harper government and of Harper himself. It is well worth the read. I hope it makes you angry.

Reader: Tories Rush Anti-Terrorism Bill C51 to Committee

E-mail Print PDF

Editor, the following has been sent to Prime Minister Harper, MP Larry Miller, and Minister Peter MacKay:

Steve, Larry, Peter, 

You Cons have consistently refused to fund agencies and oversight committees that are designed to protect Canadians from rabid and reactive political policies! 

You refused to let many agencies of government that protect Canadians, spend even the meagre budget amounts you allocated.  

The CSIS Oversight committee, the RCMP, Dept of National Defense,  Parliamentary budget officer, the freedom of information office, environmental protection departments etc. etc are running on fumes !! They can't do their jobs well enough as it is.

Thoughts on the Proposed New Mixed Residential/Retail Development

E-mail Print PDF

Editor,

The proposed major development that Mr. Toncic has proposed for the Meaford downtown is an excellent step in improving the potential of our economy and status as an Ontario town that cares about its heritage.

In order for this to proceed the Municipality must apply its own approved bylaw for the Heritage Conservation District and issue a permit that requires that the façade of the existing building remain.

There are many examples around the world of similar redevelopments that respect the streetscapes and allow the modern development to proceed.
