House-of-commons-empty-featlDear Editor,
On Monday night, the mission against ISIL was extended in Iraq, and expanded in to Syria through a vote in Parliament. Federal MPs voted 142-129 in favour of the motion to extend and expand the mission. Any vote which could lead to the endangering of Canadian lives, whether they be military or civilian, should be seen as an important one, and whether you do or do not support the extension and expansion of the mission, your voice, as a resident of Bruce-Grey-Owen Sound (and more generally, as a Canadian citizen) was not heard in Parliament on Monday...

dear-editor-typewriter-featureRe: Larry Miller; "stay the hell where you came from".
I just listened to the CFOS Open Line with Bill Murdoch gathering reactions on Larry Miller telling Muslim women who want to wear the niqab while taking the citizenship oath to "stay the hell where you came from". This discussion is not about religious beliefs and what we may or may not find find appropriate expressions at the citizenship ceremony. This discussion needs to be about the sometimes veiled and this time manifest expression of hatred against certain immigrants.

dear-editor-typewriter-featureLarry: I have known you a long, long time. Did you ever figure that I was
also a immigrant who never wanted to go back to where I came from? Your
latest blast has left me in a sorrow; those of us from other places will
never find a home in your political party.

Sorry Larry, I thought we all had a home in Canada; guess you got something
about those of us who weren't born in this country. A pity, eh?

Andrew Armitage, Leith, Ontario

dear-editor-typewriter-featureDear Larry,

You and I have met on a couple of occasions. I went to school with your kids, we sold cattle together in the black angus club and I spoke with you about our local library a while back.

After hearing you on the CF0S radio show this week, I would like to clarify some things and ask a couple questions.

Canadian-coins-featureEditor's note: Ontario announced  today it will raise minimum wage to $11.25 per hour effective October 1


Dear Editor:


In a previous life I worked for Canadian John's Manville in Port Union Ontario. The plant was unionized and whenever there was a new contract the first line supervisors got their salary adjusted as well. Their pay was adjusted to 25% more than the average of the top 5 wages of people who they supervised. Obviously the first line supervisors were secretly cheering for the union and I am sure my salary as well was somehow affected although not as directly! This same type of approach could be used to alleviate income disparity in Canada.
