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"

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
Having been fortunate to have recently returned from a visit to the Netherlands, specifically Amsterdam (a beautiful city), the VE ceremonies there are both joyous and sobering.
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.
Good public consultation
Now that consultation about the appearance and function of the Market Square is about to enter a new phase, it’s important to consider what a good public consultation process looks like.
Mail discrepancy
According to Canada Post’s official figures, only 26 per cent of Canadians have mail delivered at CMBs
No right or wrong
I was a little shocked to read Mr. Cooney’s letter regarding his lack of connection with Gallery Stratford.
Parking garage more than an eyesore
From a quality of life perspective a parking garage is an ugly, unhealthy thing.
Skeptical of vaccines for good reason
People are skeptical of vaccines for good reason. I’d encourage parents to reference multiple sources including the National Vaccine Information Centre (www.nvic.org).
