Reader Disputes Editor's Thoughts on CBC

Editor,

I am not sure where to begin.

TMI’s explanation of economic trickle-down is very confusing. To state that it makes economic sense for CBC to cover events with overly large crews, because having lots of well paid journalists (on the public’s dime), puts lots of dollars back into the economy is a false premise.

Civil servants create no wealth but take from those who do, through taxation. To apply your argument locally, Meaford would be more economically successful with more staff and higher police costs!

Reader Has Name Suggestion For Municipality

Editor,

Just a few thoughts on a new name for Meaford. Every Thursday, bocce players from the Municipality of Meaford gather for a game, year round.

This week we kicked around a new name for our municipality, keeping in mind the ultimate cost to rebrand; stationary, roadside signs, municipal vehicles, and so much more.

Wow, want to spend money? Just change the name and watch the change mount up.

Reader Wants Meaford to Hold Onto Name

Editor,

The answer is really a no-brainer, and it should use its council authority to pass a motion saying the following:

Meaford Was – Meaford Is, and Meaford will be.”

My family has roots in this town, from its formative years in the late 19th century till this very present day.

My family has been a contributor to many things, such as the hospital, apartments, Meaford Museum, community park and the cemetery over the years.
