Letters to the Editor

Thumbs down to Sudbury - D. Nicholls

As a person living in Chelmsford, many people, including myself, are sick and tired of the idea behind amalgamation into the City of Greater Sudbury.

New math - Bob Daigle

In 2005, Dr. Roger Strasser made a total of $368,595. That's $80,000 more than the year before. If he worked a 40 hour week, for 52 weeks, he would make $177 an hour.

Welcome immigrants - Hilary Stokes

I was interested to read the article about the new website to  assist immigrants coming to Ontario.

Setting record straight on 'summer theatre' - Dale Pepin

As the producer of Theatre Cambrian's upcoming production of Oklahoma (I wish) to express my consternation over a report in the May 3 edition of Northern Life.

Many don't understand tradition of lowering flags at half-mast - Martin Johnston

I am mystified at the attitude of Canadians regarding the lowering of flags. It seems Canadians no longer understand the tradition and symbolic nature of this honour, and it is time we relearn what it is about.

Sudbury needs youth concerts - Amelia Rauhanen

I am writing to express my concerns after reading in Northern Life that the Sudbury Art Council will no longer host youth concerts.

Clarification about union wages needed - Wyman MacKinnon

I feel compelled to write this letter in regards to the city's $100,000 club. It seems every year when this list comes out that paranoia runs supreme at City Hall.

City shouldn't be bragging about work - Terry Zanetti

The city administration seems proud of the fact the Pothole Patrol filled in 39,000 potholes. What a bit of news to brag about! If roadwork was properly funded, we would not need to waste money patching these cowpaths we call roads.

Make inclusive decisions, not exclusive committees - Perry Guilbault

Over the last year or two, I have seriously considered running for city councillor, but I will not run due to following conclusions: -  Firstly, you cannot be an effective councillor if it is a part-time job.

Knowledge key to safety - Nicholas May

I am writing about the recent article Union boss wants workers to fight for safer workplaces in the April 30 edition.
