Letters to the Editor

Only two funding sources for pipeline

Dear Editor, During the recent campaign, I knocked on about 400 of my neighbours’ doors. I wasn’t running for office but I gave out some brochures from a few candidates that were.

Dear Editor, Beverley Mably wrote and asked for clarification on the editorial statement, “To regrettably paraphrase Donald Trump, the attacks came from both sides...” and I thought I would offer my help.
