Letter: Heavier garbage containers are needed in Jean-Drapeau Park

Every day during my morning walk, I see an accumulation of garbage in Jean-Drapeau Park, an eyesore. Don’t the maintenance people see it as well? It is obvious to me that the squirrels, the marmots, the foxes and other wildlife delight in turning the garbage containers upside down for their daily feast. 35 more words


Letter: Lack of imagination in Quebec budget

Letter: Workload of a judge is misunderstood

Re: “Defence suggests Senate witness Proulx biased for prosecution” (Christie Blatchford, April 25)

I consider Christie Blatchford’s characterization of judges, as set out in her April 25 column, offensive not only in its misrepresentation of a judge’s workload, but in the fact that judges — being subject to the “devoir de réserve,” which prohibits them from speaking about public or social issues — cannot respond to her comments. 143 more words
