Larry Kazdan on the Dangers of Printing Too Much Money – LTE – May 7, 2015

Re: Federal parties start to play their economic cards, Jason Fekete, May 5, 2015 http://ottawacitizen.com/news/politics/federal-parties-start-to-play-their-economic-cards The conventional wisdom is that whichever party forms government will not have much financial breathing room, especially with the collapse of world oil prices. In fact, while there are ideological and eventual real resource restraints, there is no financial constraint […]

Letter to the Editor by Pastor Tom Newton : Municipalities will obey ban on prayers APRIL 23, 2015

  Yes, the High Court of the Land has spoken, and many gladly obey. Another nail in the coffin of religious freedom and expression! I am not surprised at the High Court’s decision here, seeing its track record on past ungodly actions: abortion, same sex marriage, physician-assisted suicide, and many others. The trend is more […]

Pastor Tom Newton on Bill 77 – Letter to the Editor – April 3, 2015

Queen’s Park is at it again in its support of sexual diversity. It is Bill 77 this time. Bill 77 – “a bill that would ban therapy to ‘convert” gay and transgender children and youth….”, and even deny “OHIP coverage of conversion or therapy for adults intended to change their sexual orientation or gender identity”1.

Dave Windsor on Cornwall Ontario Runaway Municipal Budget FEB 27, 2015 LTE #cwlpoli

The Emperor Has No Clothes   In reviewing the papers, hearing the gossip and assessing on my own thoughts it has become painfully obvious that a city, our city, has become part and parcel to an entrapment within the elements of our budgeting processes and that intimidation’s, blackballing’s, entitlements have a higher support or empowerment […]
