Citizens voice concerns over proposed local campground

A proposal for a campground on a property fronting on Duval and Aberdeen Roads was the dominant item on the agenda when Champlain Township Council met on August 11.   During a public zoning meeting held at the start of the evening, Consulting Planner Tyler Duval of J.L. Richards and Associates, explained how the applicant, […]

We are training search engines to show us what we already believe to be true

Some of you may be reading this on an actual piece of paper. And although there are some avid readers of books and newspapers, many of you do research online. Many of you search out videos to watch. Online research has become a regular thing for most people. We look up how to do things […]

When you’ve gotta go …

Most people mark their age on their birthdays. Me, I keep track by how often I need a bathroom. When I’m home, this is no problem – except for the multiple times I have to get up in the night. But away from home, it’s a different story. Finding a public washroom has become akin […]

I may never know . . .

Perhaps I grew up in a time where it was considered mildly impertinent to ask questions. I asked few over the years, and then found myself in a career where questions were the name of the game. How long have you been doing this? Why do you do this? When did this happen? Why do […]

The things we don’t talk about, won’t talk about and cannot talk about

There has always been a fine line about what one can speak of and that which should not be mentioned. But in recent years, those lines have become blurry.  As we fret our way through this pandemic (which some still deny or consciously select information which becomes misleading in the way it is presented), even […]

And then . . .

Writing the weekly editorials used to be easy. And then, over time, things became less black and white. Behind the municipal decisions I saw humans who were unsure of their own decisions, or who had to move forward even when they were uncertain–or there was not enough time to reflect–or there was too much pressure […]

Sorry seems to be the hardest word, but moving forward is harder still

Laying bare the wrongs of the past can be painful. This week, as Pope Francis apologized for the way the church and Christians have abused Indigenous children in residential schools, all while trying to obliterate their culture, some say something was missing. He did not name the Roman Catholic Church. Perhaps that was not necessary, […]

Federal services are experiencing delivery decay

Canadians are feeling the brunt of bureaucratic inertia, inefficiency, and underfunding when it comes to how federal public services are delivered. It seems as if the provision of services provided or regulated by the federal government is in a state of decay. In recent weeks, we have seen and heard of numerous examples of depressingly […]

Successes are owned by everyone. Mix-ups? Not so much.

It was the parade we had all been waiting for. But we had to go to the parade, when we learned it wasn’t coming to us, after all. A new event protocol introduced by Champlain Township, assurances that seemed to vaporize, a Rogers outage and ensuing miscommunications all contributed to details that some felt were […]

What we choose to believe

Experience is a word that holds a lot of meaning. Our expectations are managed by our past experiences. We eat a less-than-enjoyable meal at a restaurant and we will not return, or if we do, we do so with the expectation of another bad experience. When you think about it, why would anyone return to […]

What is behind the symbols and who owns them?

Does seeing the Canadian flag make you cringe and wonder about those who are displaying it? During last winter’s freedom convoy events, the vehicles with Canadian flags waving from windows of trucks, along with F— Trudeau signs conveyed several messages. Depending upon your point of view, the signs indicated a fight for freedom and the view […]
