In Support of Teachers

Dear Editor,

I am writing to voice my support for the teachers in Ontario in their quest to maintain our world-wide, recognized excellent education system.

Teachers are fighting on behalf of parents and students. I am a grandparent with an autistic grandson. Our diverse classrooms need more not fewer teachers and supports to address differences so all children can reach their potential. E-learning has been proven to be ineffective for the majority of adolescents’ learning styles and maturity levels. Parents want less screen time for their kids, not more.

Reader Calls Out 'Green Spin' From TC Energy


This is the third occasion now I’ve felt compelled to respond to TC’s orchestrated 'green spin' on physics and economics. I do so for the benefit of the taxpayers and users of electrical energy who may be less familiar with power generation technologies.

Full disclosure this time; I am a retired electrical engineer. During the last 20 years of my career, I was principally involved with six of the world’s largest hydro-electric and water storage projects. I know this business.
