You Aren't Being Lied To - Honestly

MeBWmediaAs frustrating and unnecessary as it may seem, we really do have to question everything we see and hear. It shouldn't have to be that way, but it is.

 

When I was much younger I accepted that most people are honest, and I didn't spend a whole lot of time questioning information that was presented to me. As time has gone on however, I have become more and more skeptical of everything I am being told in media, by our politicians, by corporations, and even by friends and family.

Murdoch at Queen's Park Was Almost Like Having an Independent Representative

MeBWmediaLast week our Member of Provincial Parliament, Bill Murdoch, bid farewell to Queen's Park after having served in the legislature for nearly 21 years.

 

It is not often that an MPP from a rural riding like ours is able to generate the kind of profile that Murdoch has.

 

Some call him a maverick, others call him a rabble-rouser, some have called him things that I can't print here.

Municipal Departments Should Not Be Allowed to Dip Into AMFAP Funding

MeBWmediaI love the Meaford Museum. For a community of our size to have such a fantastic facility on our beautiful waterfront for residents and tourists to visit is a wonderful thing. I take my children to the museum a few times each year and they are always asking to go back.

 

Museums are important to any community. They are the guardians of our past. They help showcase our roots and remind us of what life and society has been like as we have moved through history.
