PSB should examine ‘in camera’ policy
St. Marys Journal Argus editorial: Various members of Town Council have been walking a series of tightropes over the past few weeks with regards to confidentiality. And, during discussion at last week’s Committee of the Whole meeting, they all faced the prospect of tottering into the abyss.
‘Debate and discussion’
Mount Forest Confederate editorial: At a recent council meeting it was announced that two reports and recommendations prepared by CAO Lori Heinbuch outlining a) options and costs for all staff to receive customer service training over the next two years and b) outlining an appropriate ‘accountability and transparency’ draft policy in accordance with Section 270 of the Municipal Act would be discussed at an Administration Committee meeting prior to being brought to a council meeting for discussion.

One drowning death is too many
Elmira Independent editorial: Every year, it happens. Sometimes, it happens to a child that wandered into an unattended pool. Sometimes, it happens to a fisherman who decided not to wear a lifejacket, or to a boater who had a few beers before heading out on the lake.

They have a right to grow up safe
Wingham Advance-Times editorial: Two dead and 23 injured in the latest Toronto shooting – right on cue, the Toronto mayor says the incident is an isolated one, and Toronto is the safest city in the world. Right on cue, there are calls for tighter gun laws and a crackdown on gangs. And right on cue, there are demands for more money to battle poverty and unemployment among inner city youth.
The age-old challenge of drought
Listowell Banner editorial: Talk in the farm supply stores in this region has shifted solidly to the drought conditions, with recent smatterings of rainshowers only affecting isolated areas, and mostly not enough even there to alleviate the excessively dry conditions.

Sick days a sore point with teachers
St. Marys Journal Argus editorial: Dalton McGuinty has never been referred to as “the Healthcare Premier” or “the Agriculture Premier” or “the Infrastructure Premier.” But he has been referred to on many occasions, and by many diverse commentators, as “the Education Premier.”
Aggregate Resources Act needs an overhaul
Elmira Independent editorial: If one thing is clear with Ontario’s Aggregate Resources Act, it’s this — the current system is not working.

A solution in sight?
Exeter Times-Advocate Editorial: It was interesting and surprising to notice at the latest Grand Bend Area Sewage Treatment Board meeting that things seem to be headed in a direction that will result in a sewage option cheaper than the $20 million to $26 million mechanical plant the board was discussing up until a few months ago.
This is not Mayberry
Wingham Advance-Times editorial: Welcome to Mayberry, a place where kids grew up safe. If Opie got into a bit of trouble, there was always a benevolent adult nearby to steer him back onto the straight and narrow – Aunt Bea with a glass of homemade lemonade and a hug, or kindly Sheriff Andy Taylor, so brilliantly portrayed by the late Andy Griffith, with a few words of wisdom.
Prank not so harmless
Listowell Banner/Minto Express editorial: For those responsible, it’s probably just a harmless prank, something good for a few laughs. But that “harmless prank” could kill someone.
