Reaction to Reader Troubled by Vaccines


Ms. Sparkhall got nearly everything wrong in her letter to the editor. Maybe it’s time the editorial board considered not printing letters where the basic facts are ignored in favor of urban myth. Would your paper publish a letter that started, “Since Canada’s founding in 1956, Communism has played an important role in Inuit culture”? I’m guessing not.

The mistakes are too numerous to address in whole, so I’ll just comment on the part that reads, "In particular, research has zeroed in on the adjuvants (immune boosters) in the vaccines like mercury, aluminum, fetal contaminants along with immunity extenders like peanut oil...think peanut allergies?” The writer doesn’t understand what adjuvants are. There is no elemental mercury or aluminum in vaccines. Aluminum salts are used as adjuvants, but in safe, minuscule doses. The “fetal contaminants” refer to DNA fragments, not tiny little fingers and toes.

BJHS Thanks Supporters of Family Fun Day

Dear Editor:

Beautiful Joe Heritage Society would like to “Thank all of those that contributed and enjoyed our first Family Fun Day” at Beautiful Joe Park last Sunday.

Mother Nature had different plans than ours, even so, we had many brave and daring souls come out and enjoy the festivities. Due to the weather, most activities were provided inside the pavilion.

Rotary Club volunteers BBQ’d for us. They got pretty wet too! Did you know that the Rotary Club was responsible for clearing the land at Beautiful Joe Park in 1963?

What Are We Standing on Guard For?


Now that the Canada 150 celebrations have subsided somewhat, I believe we should take a careful look at what we are “Standing on Guard for”.

As a Nation we have much to be proud of and to be thankful for, as well as being ashamed of.

Thankful for the beautiful landscapes from sea to sea to sea, that we did NOT create, and are doing a terrible job of preserving.
