Sir Adam Beck is Turning in His Grave

The Editor,

The September 22, 2016 issue of The Independent, on the Opinion Page, has an interview with MPP Walker.

I do not know who interviewed him, or if the part written up in the paper is the complete interview. Based on the information provided, Mr. Walker informs us about all the shortcomings and misdeeds of the ruling Liberals at Queen's Park on the Ontario Hydro issue.

He is right in most of what he says, and could even go further in exposing the corruption involved. However, there is not a single comment on what he, and his Conservative Party, would do different IF elected in 2018. Tearing something down, necessitates building something new.

MP Larry Miller on Relocation Expenses for Liberal Staffers

Dear Editor,

This week, the Government tabled a response to a formal question that I asked regarding the costs that were incurred to relocate staff for Ministers and the Prime Minister to Ottawa following the election last fall. The answer that I was provided with demonstrates a truly remarkable abuse of taxpayers’ dollars. These expenses are out of line and should never have been approved.

The documents that were provided to my office show that the Government spent close to $1.1 million to move 49 staffers to the Ottawa area following the election. They reveal that about $373,921 of that money was spent on moving services and $52,777 was spent on hotel rooms. However, that leaves $685,118 in expenses that are unexplained.

Reader Enjoyed Seeing Their Pooch in Print


Needless to say, we were absolutely delighted last Wednesday to see the beautiful photo of Reverend Jones and our beloved Golden Retriever, Darla, on page four of your newspaper (September 15 print edition); thank you.

In addition to the excellent photo, we would also like to commend your reporter T.S. Giilck for his excellent article - what a pleasure to see one's words actually in print, precisely as spoken.

Anne-Marie has a very special feeling for animals which was very much in evidence during the blessings - really a perfect choice.

Thanks, again
Bill and Mardi Puttick, and Darla, too
