It must be close to Christmas. The Salvation Army Kettle is at Zehrs now to raise funds for the less fortunate in our community.
Remember, all the funds raised at the Kettle go to: the Back to School back pack program, camp for children, snow removal for seniors, tutoring for public school when required, Christmas food hampers and toys and clothing for the family, assistance during the year with heat, hydro, food and clothing, and more programs as the need arises.
And your Salvation Army is run completely by volunteers. Let’s make every child’s dream come true on Christmas morning and give them presents to open. Thank you, Uxbridge.

Mayor Barton is quite correct: five million aborted Canadians goes over anyone’s definition of a line. After all, being subjected to abortion is traumatizing for the unborn child. If only the Americans had complained that pictures of My Lai were traumatizing, we might still be in Vietnam.
How is sanitizing the picture going to solve the problem?
Before Debbie Leroux gets out her pen, remember that human nature rests on a foundation of natural law, and violating natural law results in dead bodies. If you can’t handle the image, respect the reality, don’t confiscate the camera.

February is “Black History Month,” which is a good idea. “Orange Shirt Day” is a START. But it is not enough to even acknowledge the horrors that the Indigenous People endured. The schools, no access to clean water, and so many more injustices.
We need a “First Nations Month.”
Without the Indigenous People’s help, we would not be the Canada that we now have, coast to coast to coast.
Can you even name 12 of Canada’s First Nations? And yes, they are “nations.”
