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 […]

Debbie Cameron on Linguistic Busing LETTER TO THE EDITOR April 10, 2015 #LTE

Dear Editor,   I am a concerned Canadian citizen and believe it is my civic duty to protect the rights of children in our country and our community from segregation. The act of separating English and French children on different buses is promoting segregation and division across both linguistic groups. http://www.cbc.ca/news/canada/new-brunswick/acadian-society-says-bilingual-buses-promote-assimilation-1.3019136 .  Tensions are rising in New Brunswick (Canada’s ONLY bilingual […]

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

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 […]

Letter to the Editor – The Interview by William Hopkinson JAN 20, 2015

Letter to the Editor – The Interview  by William Hopkinson JAN 20, 2015

I was just curious how many, if any, people have seen “The Interview?” My wife and I watched it on VOD Saturday night on our local television service provider.  I can see why the North Koreans are a “little” upset at Columbia Pictures / Sony Pictures.  The North Koreans, for the most part, are not […]

Letter To the Editor on Why I Should Vote by Council Candidate Mike O’Neill

Letter To the Editor on Why I Should Vote by Council Candidate Mike O’Neill

Dear Editor, Why should I vote? I’m just one person and my vote won’t change a thing. The same people get elected by the same voters and nothing really ever changes. Even if new people get elected the results are still the same. I have heard this many times before and I`ve even thought that […]

Letter to the Editor by Bill Beattie  – Harbour Divestiture in Cornwall = Land Give Away

The ongoing behind closed doors Secret Negotiations with Akwesasne over our Port and Port Land is I believe nothing short of an engineered   sham a diversionary tactic by Mayor Kilger attempting to turn our focus away from the truth about the Trillium Tanks on our water front land. Was it Economic Development that dropped […]

Letter to the Editor:  Accountability – What is that South Stormont Mayor Tammy Hart?  Pastor Tom Newton South Stormont Ontario

  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 […]
