Food For Thought


The Letters page of your August 17, 2017 edition should be of great interest locally: Mike Robertson on the library issue, and nationally MP Larry Miller on the New Canada Food Guide.

Mr. Robertson provides a new perspective to the eternal library discussions, and I am in total agreement.

I also agree with our MP in his comments on an unbalanced New Canada Food Guide.

Appreciation For Local Police


I apologize to the OPP for complaining about not seeing them around Meaford much.

An officer explained to me, after I was almost hit on a pedestrian crossing and light crossing twice in one week, that the OPP have a huge area to cover, they work shifts and sometimes need two officers in one car.

The cars we see sitting in the parking lot at the police detachment are spares. Their cars are always on the road. They go as far as Mount Forest and Leith and as far away the other side.

What Will Happen to Current Library Building?

To the Editor,

I noted with some interest the council move to hire a consultant to assess the viability of the former Foodland building as a potential library.

Despite the painfully long process of discussing new library locations, there never seems to be mention of what to do with the CURRENT library building. It’s a beautiful 82 year-old building, but has no obvious potential to be a commercial entity, especially in a town with an average of 16 empty storefronts, not even counting the grocery store building, or the lengthy downtown stretch of abandoned houses and movie theatre.
