Seventeen years ago, we purchased a cottage in the Haliburton area. After exploring many other recreational areas we chose Haliburton due to its vibrant nature; a place where people treated each other with dignity and respect, a thriving social and busine

In these uncertain times, with daily reports most dire and upsetting, it is important to try and maintain a sense of balance. The accompanying song was my attempt to add a bit of levity to a condition which affects everyone. Sung to the tune of Do y

I thought your editorial Investing in LTC workers was entirely thoughtful and right on point. Before I retired I was a national representative for 27 years for the Canadian Auto Workers and then Unifor. Most of my job was negotiating contracts and som

These are very difficult times with much fear surrounding COVID-19. While it is not my intent to impose my beliefs on anyone, I do believe in the power of prayer and in the power of group prayer. It is with this in mind that I submit this letter.

My electricity bill has risen by a whopping 55 per cent as of Nov. 1, 2019. Premier Doug Ford made a big deal of accusing the former Liberal government of having their hand in our pockets and how he was going to lower our electricity bills.
