Support For Moment of Reflection


Thank you for standing up for the Moment of Reflection preceding Council meetings (The 3 Rs... Rants, Raves & Rumours in the March 15 print paper). We agree this is an important, if brief, ritual in our 'Era of Distraction'.

Humans are hard-wired for rituals, and they serve an important function, for better or for worse. (Gangs know this). Some rituals define the line between sacred and profane; others bind us in community.

Never a Bad Time For a Debate

Dear Editor,

I wish to respond to your comments in 'This weeks rants', page 11 of The Meaford Independent March 15 issue (The 3 Rs... Rants, Raves & Rumours).

In short, I think it's too early for such a debate, and if those trying to organize it would consider waiting until after May 1 when candidates can file their nomination papers…”

Thoughts on Planned Raking of Sauble Beach


No doubt you and many residents of Meaford Municipality are aware of the rising groundswell of opposition to the planned (heavy machine) raking of Sauble Beach by the Town of South Bruce Peninsula.

Those cautioning against this action are not just "Plover Lovers", although that's not a bad thing to be! The concerns are as much, if not more, based on an awareness and understanding of environmental interdependence and long term effects of human interference.
