The front story and the back story

What you read in these pages every week is sort of the front story but for sure: we do try to get the back story. Why? We believe that knowing the reasons why, the who, the how, the when and the where matter to those of you who believe in democracy and freedom of information. […]

Municipal elections: What are the real issues?

We all love this word: real. We want people to ‘be real.’ We want ‘real results.’ At this newspaper, we try to write about the ‘real’ issues: the ones that are important to all of you. But what matters to each of you? It varies. It is a given that there are stark contrasts within […]

The Queen’s dedication and longevity was a constant in Canadian life

The death of Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II on September 8 was a shock to most of us, even though there was an element of inevitability due to the late monarch’s advanced age and frail health. There are varying opinions of the monarchy among Canadians, but it is nearly impossible to not admire the late […]

The rules we choose to make reveal our priorities

We are good, although slow, in many cases, at setting up rules. Although the dangers of tobacco emerged in the 1960s, it was not until 2006, for example, that Ontario and Quebec banned smoking in restaurants and bars. In 2009, British Columbia, Ontario and Prince Edward Island banned smoking in vehicles with kids. It is […]

The comment period for the draft transportation plan for Eastern Ontario closed on August 19, 2022. The plan, introduced earlier this year, contains 56 actions to improve existing transportation systems, ranging from things as simple as ensuring that agricultural vehicles can travel safely on local roads to relieving the congestion and gridlock on the highways […]

What creates community? Geography . . . or people?

One has only to attend a community event to see a sense of community. Often, people cluster together, as they did in the beergarden at the Vankleek Hill Fair last weekend (tip: Sunday afternoon is locals day). Or it might be at the Riceville Fair–or at the Lachute Fair. Heading to the fair, former residents […]

The cost of the fair is big, but a million smiles make it all worthwhile

In the weeks leading up to the Vankleek Hill Fair, the excitement about the return of the event has been noticeable around the community. Local dairy and horse farmers are preparing for competition. Demolition derby contestants have been getting vehicles ready to smash and crash, and cooks have been in the kitchen crafting prize-winning preserves. […]

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 […]

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 […]
