More Information Wanted About Proposed Energy Project


I entirely agree with the writer who is frustrated at the lack of information on the proposed TransCanada-Energy Project on federal land and Georgian Bay.

This information should be shouted from the rooftops. Everyone living on the land between Collingwood and Tobermory should be informed and extremely concerned.

Get Out and Vote!

Dear Editor,

I went to the all candidates meeting in Owen Sound and was really impressed by the good manners and intelligence of the candidates. The best comment came from the Libertarian candidate: "I don't care who you vote for just get out and vote." Maybe you could remind the young people of that.

We Can’t Turn Back the Clock on Our Veterans


I am a veteran who served in the first Gulf War. My son served in Afghanistan and returned missing a leg. I have first-hand knowledge of veterans whose daily struggle with life-altering mental and physical challenges requires more than election talk.

Perhaps you know someone in Grey or Bruce counties like my injured son, or who is still serving in the military. Perhaps you’re a patriot with no military connections, but who cares deeply about the quality of life of the men and women who serve our country. Like me, you may be silently worrying about our veterans’ futures.
