Reader Questions Cell Tower Letter

E-mail Print PDF

Dear Editor,

There is something very fishy about this letter.

Your correspondent is very eager for us to know all the places where he has trained as a ‘statistician and econometrician’. We are aware that those who practice those activities deal entirely with numbers; extracting and assembling relationships amongst them.

What is really strange is that in his letter of roughly 730 words there was not a single number drawn from his conclusions – of the sort we often hear; “there is a 15% chance of such and such happening 19 times out of 20”. Very odd.

Reuse Fair Drop-Off Location Clarified

E-mail Print PDF

Dear Editor,

Immediately after the TMI hit the newsstands Friday, April 11 , I received a call about the Reuse Fair.

Yes, I have things to share, but where do I bring them?’ was the question.

Oh dear, in the information submitted to  your paper, did we forget to add that the items are to be dropped off at the Meaford & St Vincent Community Centre between 10 am and 3:00 pm. April 26?

Lack of Truth in Political Ads

E-mail Print PDF

Editor,

Susan Delacourt, formerly of The Globe and Mail and now a senior political writer for The Toronto Star, has written a book entitled Shopping For Votes in which she contrasts political advertising of a product vs. commercial advertising.

Advertising Standards Canada states, “Advertisements must not unfairly, discredit, disparage, or attack one or more products, services, advertisements, companies or entities, or exaggerate the nature or importance of competitive differences.”  Tim Horton's takes this further by expressly forbidding “false or deceptive statements about a competitor’s produce, business practice, financial status, or reliability,” as well as “disparaging remarks about a competitor with the intention of damaging that competitor.”
