Councillor Responds to 3 Rs Mention

Dear Editor,

In response to your Rave article about myself (The 3Rs...Rants, Raves & Rumours column, January 10 print edition)I would like to apologize for falling asleep at the recent Council meeting.

Between my DNA and being a busy farmer I do find it hard to keep awake when I’m sitting still in a comfortable chair. This is something I am aware that I need to improve in and will work harder at staying engaged during the meeting.

Is Canada Following in America's Footsteps?

Dear Editor,

I was watching Michael Moore's Fahrenheit 11/9 in horror of what can be done to innocent citizens, when I realized it may not only be in the U.S. or third world countries.

Are we not guilty of the Flint-style genocide in our indigenous communities? Are we not poisoning our water with the tailing ponds out west? We are not bombing our own cities like they did in Flint, but with the investigations into the RCMP and Thunder Bay police, are we not guilty too? Did the G20 disgrace not show we are capable of a police state too? When Harper ended the long census so we could not evaluate the destruction of Canada and Ford is destroying any good thing Wynne did, Trump style, is that any different from the U.S.?
