If somebody doesn’t feel strongly enough about an issue to stand behind their opinions and sign their name to whatever it is they’re saying, then it generally isn’t worth listening to. However, the bit of stale bigotry in the June 29 paper ... Read More »

  • Time to open our eyes … and windows

    During the recent heat wave, some were forced indoors by smoke – deprived of clean air and the right to open windows. Such abuse must stop. Much has changed since 2006 when a former council repealed Bylaw 4489 which had banned all open burning. As we know now, burning anything affects both climate and health. ... Read More »
