Reader Thanks Good Samaritan

E-mail Print PDF

Dear Editor,

I hope you will publish this letter, because I have no other way of expressing my gratitude.

My son and I would like to heartily thank the man on his way from Meaford to Kitchener who stopped to help us out of a snowbank on a lane off Grey road 12 yesterday evening.

As my son said as he drove away, "He must sleep really well at night." And in case there are a lot of Good Samaritans from Meaford out there rescuing folks, this man was the one wearing a T-shirt that said Dads Against Daughters Dating.

Reader on Branding – Meaford Needs to Find its Authentic Voice

E-mail Print PDF

Editor,

I have tried to stay out of the Meaford branding debate for the last 3 years but after I read the last letter to the editor - I just can't stay silent any longer.

Branding is not about a "tag line".  "The Other Big Apple" is just that - a tag line.

Let me start by introducing myself.  I am a resident of Meaford - originally during summer vacation at the young age of 4 months. Meaford has been in my blood and a part of my life for now more than 50 years.  I have also been a Marketing, Creative & Brand executive for 20 years with the CBC - and as of this past year, as a consultant for local, regional and national (Bristow Global Media and Rogers Media) companies. I have been the lead on such brands as CBC News, the CBC master brand (Canada Lives Here), CBC Music, and Hockey Night in Canada.

Reader: What’s in a Name?

E-mail Print PDF

To the Editor,

I agree with your recent editorial comment that the time for a different name for this municipality is long past.

I’d like to add a few more points. A different name for this municipality, after all the onerous cost and time spent on such a task, would only result in a different name on our tax and utility bills. Nothing more.

Mailing addresses would not change, how we are known to visitors and traffic passing through would not change.

This applies everywhere. On Feb. 2, did anyone tune in to see what ‘South Bruce Peninsula Willie’ was predicting?
