Shovels in the ground this spring for housing development in Fenelon Falls?

Your headline “Neighbours oppose handful of geared-to-income apartments in Fenelon Falls” sold the sizzle — a deep dive into the full issue might have given your readership a full view of all the opposition.

I do not abut the land in question but do reside in the surrounding area. All residents of Fenelon Falls should be concerned with the lack of transparency that has occurred with this pending project.

in Letters to the Editor by

I love the policy proposals in your recent editorial regarding Basic Income Plus, although I think it could be even more ambitious.

Ford government moving to privatize health care, reader says

No charge residential clear bag drop at City Landfills

Thank you for painting a bright new shiny solid yellow line on Concession 7 and Northline Road.

This will be helpful at letting us all know when we have broken the law by veering to the other side of the road repeatedly to miss the many potholes.

Reader not impressed that he can’t bring food to his mother at Ross Memorial Hospital

in Letters to the Editor by

During these times of turmoil, most of us are already on edge having little control over the outcome.

More than a week ago, my 76-year-old mother was admitted to the hospital with a broken pelvis. She is now bedridden, lonely and in significant pain.
