BeFunky CollageDear Editor,

We were all very saddened to hear of the brutal attack on a night club recently in Orlando, Florida. There has been an outpouring of support for the victims and their families and our thoughts and prayers are certainly with them at this time.

This shooting very clearly demonstrated the height of intolerance as the Pulse nightclub was targeted specifically by the shooter, Omar Mateen. Pure and simple this was an act based on intolerance but let us not forget that this attack was rooted in radical Islam. In one word: this was terrorism.

This is not a so-called "Islamaphobic" statement. There are many Muslims who practice their religion peacefully. But it is very unfortunate that too many people view peaceful Muslims in the same light as those...

bwwindturbinesWe Ontarians are experiencing another hydro rate increase beginning this May. The residential hydro cost has almost DOUBLED IN JUST 6 YEARS. In 2010, one kWh cost 9.3, 8 and 4.4 cents for high, medium and low cost time periods. Now it is 18, 13.2 and 8.7 cents.

As a Visual Art teacher at OSCVI for 25 years, I, along with my students painted 25 sets for those yearly productions. What a fantastic experience for all involved. There is nothing more memorable for the high school experience. As far as I know no trustees or Bluewater administration showed up for opening night. I wonder why?

It's been well documented that music, drama, visual arts and dance greatly enhance a student's...

westhillsignWhy change the name at all?

We received this flash alert from the OSCVI site the other day and I thought I would share my opinion on it. As a supporter of the OSCVI save our school group which currently has a petition to review in process, I find the whole concept a little ...
