Letter to the Editor – Nancy Dunlop of Cornwall Ontario is Against the Energy East Pipeline – JAN 27, 2015

  I am a South Stormont resident, and as I can imagine many received as I did Deputy Mayor Hart’s campaign flier in the mail. I submitted some questions via email about some issues that I had a concern about, and of yet, after two submissions, still no reply, so I thought maybe if I […]
