    Sir: I love the city of Chatham-Kent and I am proud to be a resident. What I don’t understand is why our excellent mayor, who deserves all our respect, doesn’t seem to have a chain of office. For many hundreds of years, a new mayor of a community...

  • Standing up for the individuals

    Sir: In response to the article in The Chatham Voice on Nov. 21, “CPP to purchase turbine company,” I wonder how many taxpayers have looked at this current of events under a microscope. Personally, it raises red flags that may be observed as being...

    Dec 9, 19 • 0 Views • Letters to the EditorNo Comments

    Sir: Re: Repealing Pit bull ban. The proposed repealing of the pit bull ban by our local MPP is not a good idea. I totally disagree with Rick Nicholls, our member of provincial parliament, regarding the pit bull ban. Just the fear pedestrians in our city have...

    Nov 21, 19 • 0 Views • Letters to the EditorNo Comments

    Sir: I enjoyed Bruce’s rant about other motorists (“It’s simple, folks, obey the law”) in the Oct. 24 Chatham Voice. I may be careless sometimes (sorry, Bruce!) but I am over 80 years old and have passed the Ontario government’s 45-minute...

    Nov 21, 19 • 0 Views • Letters to the EditorNo Comments

    Sir: If I dare to write a response to the recent letter on the climate and the Carbon Tax I may well raise the temperature of some readers. It amazes me so many can take such a myopic view. Have we lost the ability to even consider what it takes to change...
