Thoughts on the Future of Churches


Your point about the decline of churches (Rants, Raves & Rumours column, March 14 print edition) is well taken, and by and large it is true.

Betta Fish Article Appreciated


I want to commend The Meaford Independent for publishing the article from the Pet Expert on Proper Habitats for Betta Fish.

Also I commend Brandon Forder for writing it.

I am consumed by sympathy every time I walk into a pet store and see these wonderful intelligent fish on display in the tiny cubes and the tiny habitats that are being sold to go with them.

Thoughts on SNC-Lavalin Controversy


I have closely followed with increasing disbelief the testimony provided by former Principal Secretary, Gerald Butts, the Prime Minister, and the highly partisan Clerk of the Privy Council Michael Wernick before the Justice Committee.

They clearly don’t understand the notion that 'no means no'. Apparently repeated requests of the former Attorney-General, Jody Wilson-Raybould, to change her position on the prosecution of SNC-Lavalin was intended to change this notion, that 'no means maybe', and after constant pressure on her, that 'no eventually means yes'.
