Letter to the Editor – Gabriel Riveriere-Reid Open Letter to MPP Jim Brownell – Cornwall Ontario – April 28, 2010

Dear Mr Brownell, In a democratic society, the people have the final say. When a government is elected, it does not give it unilateral power to do whatever it sees fit. Not everyone voted for a Liberal candidate. In fact, in the 2007 provincial election, only 42% of voters selected a Liberal on their ballot. […]

Parliament Needs to Earn the Respect of Canadian Voters – View From the Hill by Keith Beardsley – April 26, 2010

Ottawa ON – The government has given notice that it will introduce legislation that allows for an extra two advanced polling days during an election. Obviously they hope that more of us will vote.

Cornwall ON – I love my dog.  This is Lily.   She’s a Basenji and is in her “Golden Years”.   As she nears her 15th birthday she’s slowing down a bit.   She’s lost some teeth which is genetic for line sadly which makes it harder when she flips out and attacks my Rottweiler. […]

Letter to the Editor – William Hennessy on Sex Education in Ontario – Avonmore Ontario – April 23, 2010

I’m sure there is going to be a public outcry against McGuinty’s new sex education curriculum, but I would like to present another perspective.

Cornwall ON – The Real War on drugs takes place each and every day. It’s not cocaine; it’s not Mary Jane as one of our radio guests call it. It’s pharmaceuticals and the pressures from big drug companies on Medicare. Recently Ontario slashed the prices pharmacies are allowed to charge for generic drugs and cut […]
