Bill C-51 creates unaccountable secret police
The government’s secret police Bill C-51 is reckless, dangerous, and ineffective. It turns CSIS into a secret police force with little oversight or accountability.
Eliminating long form census was a mistake
Eliminating the long form census was a costly mistake and it’s high time Parliament fix it and restore it by passing Bill C-626.
Closing city golf courses would be a shame
As a former member of Rockway, I would like to comment on a number of concerns about whether these courses should be closed due to finances.
Increase aid funding in development goals
In 2000, the world harnessed incredible energy to develop the Millennium Development Goals — time-limited targets for addressing extreme poverty, hunger, disease, lack of shelter, all while promoting gender equality, education, and environmental sustainability. In 2015 these goals are due for renewal.
Sidewalk bylaw shouldn’t be mean-spirited
When a law is just plain wrong, what are the citizens who are faced with its consequences to do?
Help newcomers settle in without judgement
Help newcomers settle in and listen to their stories, instead of only caring about your wallet.

I was shocked to find out that in 2013, funding for the permanent elimination of extreme poverty rose 6.1 per cent world wide while Canada’s contribution dropped a humiliating 11.4 per cent.
Patients deserve better from government
Ontario’s doctors were extremely disappointed to read your incorrect comment as reported in the Sudbury Star recently, regarding our negotiations with your government. And we felt, to be fair to patients, we needed to reach out to correct the record.
Keep your job and don’t buy off the Internet
As a man in my 70s, I sometimes wonder where technology will eventually take us.
City should take cost into consideration
Taxes, taxes, taxes. Our councillors are working hard on tax rates to keep them low as possible.
Your eyes need proper care and attention
What most people don’t know is that up to 75 per cent of vision loss is preventable or treatable.
Citizens should have right to protect themselves
Sadly neither the police nor the media will post the truth that when citizens are given the right and responsibility to protect themselves and their property, violent crime rates diminish dramatically.
High-speed rail is a pie in the sky idea
James Bow is absolutely correct in this column. It makes no sense in this era of restrained budgets to discuss pie in the sky proposals, like high-speed rail, when we aren’t even sure if there is a market for it.
Third stream needed for trash collection
I didn’t think we lived in a communist country either, so when I put out twice as much garbage as you do, why should we both pay the same?
Running lights make our roads less safe
Several weeks ago at 11 p.m. on Highway 402 I was passed by an OPP cruiser with no tail lights on.
New Canadians should pay their own freight
As of 2015, the cost of becoming a Canadian citizen has gone up from $300 to $530.
