What if there is no such thing as affordable housing?

The housing crunch has been happening here in Prescott-Russell for a few decades now. While we dismissed the need for affordable housing, thinking that it was for the unemployable and those who had dropped out of the labour mainstream, that notion has changed. Even two-income households cannot find affordable housing. As the price of homes

Why do we look down upon the notion of work?

In many ways, the work world is upside down right now. But of most concern is that there is a shortage of workers. Restaurants need staff. Contractors are struggling to find workers to deal with the overload of work they have, teachers are leaving their profession and there is a shortage of frontline workers to

The joy of a close-knit community

On August 10, neighbours, friends, and family of para-cyclist Joey Desjardins gathered at the usually inconspicuous intersection of Bangs Road and Greenlane Road in Champlain Township to give a patriotic send-off to the athlete who is representing Canada at the Paralympic Games in Tokyo. The fact that a local resident is competing internationally is impressive

Vaccination passports are an invasion of your privacy? Think again.

Freedom. A whiff of freedom is in the air, as those who have been double-vaccinated experience a feeling of cautious relief for perhaps the first time in almost 18 months. News of other parts of the world moving to their own freedom–meaning a lifting of all COVID restrictions–is making us feel more hopeful. But there

Looking for something good as we think about identity

It is no wonder that we have a bit of an identity crisis in our region. With our dual-language status, our population which is currently somewhat older than other parts of Ontario, combined with our rural-urban landscape, let’s just say we have a lot going on. Thus far, we have managed to retain our rural
