Unsolicited junk mail recently cluttered my mail box. It was from our local MP, Gary Schellenberger, bragging about imaginary “accomplishments,” etc.

Ontario fighter pilot tells students to dream big "not to take anything away from Deanna Brasseur, but as far as being one of the first women fighter pilot this is false. The Russians, during WW II had squadron of women fighter pilots called the "night witches" and were feared by the germans."

Understanding of OPP's new 'transparent' billing is still pending "To add insult to injury wait until you start receiving overtime bills from the OPP. Wait until there is yet another force-wide hike in their salaries and benefits. I encourage you to Google the 'Ontario Provincial Police Block' and examine the conten"

New OPP billing model brings savings to county "Wait until you start receiving overtime bills from the OPP. Wait until there is yet another force-wide hike in their salaries and benefits. Then you will see how much Wellington County will actually save with the OPP's new billing model. Moreover, th"

A sight to see
For the last 25 years we have had a winter home in the Rio Grand Valley of South Texas. Every February and March we have many monarchs stopping in our garden as this is their first landfall after crossing the Gulf of Mexico.
Make yourself noticed
Motorbikes & bicycles are already virtually ignored on the road, largely because they are so small when people seem to have a mindset and awareness only of cars
An expensive mess
I guess it’s too late to call off the bulldozers coming to Market Square but several things in a recent Gazette made me wish someone could
Candidates, not parties
As the past defined what Canada was, the next election will define what Canada will be.
Yarn donation
I would like to take this opportunity to thank the anonymous donor of a treasure trove of yarn that was dropped off at the Local Community Food Centre.
Parking solutions
I’m astonished at the short sighted attitude adopted by the finance committee regarding the increase in parking charges downtown.
Giving kids a chance
On behalf of the YMCA and our 2015 Strong Kids Campaign I want to thank everyone who contributed to making McHappy Day on May 6 at McDonald’s on Ontario Street in Stratford so much fun, and for helping the Y positively impact the lives children, youth and families in our community this year.
What a season
On May 9, the 10th season of the Stratford Symphony Orchestra concluded with a rousing collaboration between the SSO and the Sultans of String.
Agree to disagree
According to Premier Kathleen Wynne, we have the right to “agree to disagree” on sex education in schools. Parents perhaps can have their children excused from the classes on that topic.
Wolf in sheep's clothing

Time to do it right
If a rational process was followed for the Cooper site, as I hope is being followed right now for Market Square, I would be happy with whatever reasoned decision council made
How to strengthen Bill C-51
On March 14 I attended the Stratford Bill C51 rally because my consulting specialty, privacy impact assessments, naturally puts me on-side with the commissioners who, nonetheless, recognize a need for better tools to respond to threats that are not imaginary.
A government run amok
C-51 is a 60-page bill that affects a wide variety of existing laws to suit the Harper government’s campaign of fear and for his campaign for re-election
Pension problems
In today’s society, when people hold down two or three jobs because they have to work at minimum wage or a bit more, or can only find part-time work, it’s no wonder they can’t save and no way can they contribute to RRSPs.
A bad idea
Regarding the provincial government selling/maximizing/privatizing parts of our electricity system: the government will benefit; it will receive billions of dollars.
