Stop the cycle to stop the abuse
Regarding the article “Mandatory Training On Residential Schools Key To All Professions” by The Canadian Press. Someone somewhere needs to take note that it is the present-day abuse on aboriginal reserves that is causing most of the present-day suicides. If we blame suicides and problems on residential school leaders, we can also say residential school leaders were abused and therefore they are not to blame either. Take note — someone somewhere needs to stop the abuse and get off the abuse cycle in order for the abuse to stop.
Cat in the bag
To the person who left their cat in a gym bag on the corner of Second Street North and Dufferin Avenue, your cat now has a nice, loving home. Whoever let this cat out was very rude and that is animal abuse. So just wanted to let you know your cat now has a loving home.
Thanks for bringing my Teddi back
I dropped my Teddi off at 9 a.m. on Friday at the groomers and continued on with the rest of my errands. Little did I know that my furbaby had escaped from the groomers and was loose in the city. When I got home, I noticed the light blinking on my answering machine. It was my vet’s office telling me that some kind-hearted soul had found her running loose and was able to identify her through her tags she was wearing. I don’t know who was more upset — me or Teddi. She cried in the car the whole way back. So the moral of this story is that even in today’s world, there are those who take the time to look after those who cannot help themselves. Sending out a big thank you to the people who helped bring Teddi back home.
I would like the topic of cellphone or Internet (telecommunications) towers to be brought up in this upcoming byelection. Many farmers are telling me that they rely on weather information from the Internet, but often they are unable to access this information. They say that there is either no tower in their region to provide this service or else their Internet often does not work. It cuts in and out because they live in a valley, etc. What’s going on? Who is going to address this issue? This seems to be unacceptable in this day and age.
Thanks for the great service
I would like to send a bouquet to the Sears store on the North Hill. I had an occasion to have a large item, which was more than a year old, give a little problem and they bent over backwards for me. And they were just wonderful. They sure look after you up there. Thank you so much.
