This wildfire season has been one of the most challenging in recent memory.

Dear Editor,

How refreshing and amazing it was that council reconsidered their actions and  took an other look at one family's situation. However,  no such consideration  has been extended to 40 or more families living in the Connors Road/Riverside  Crescent subdivision whose quality of life and home resale value has been impacted by train horn noise.

Do you know the decibel...

Dear Editor,

I've been seeing a large number of "kind people" picking up "lost pets" and posting on social media. It's a bit disturbing to me and others that people are so quick to grab the animal and take it home to keep safe until owners are located.
