Sudbury letter: Support nuclear disarmament
Last month, the world received disturbing news on nuclear proliferation. Britain announced a plan to increase its nuclear stockpiles by more than 40 per cent, increasing its previous nuclear arsenal cap from 180 warheads to 260. This increase is in direct opposition to the responsibilities of a nuclear-armed signatory of the Nuclear Non-Proliferation Treaty (NPT) that promised to get rid of nuclear weapons in “good faith”. Fifty years later, the five nuclear-armed countries (US, Britain, France, China and Russia) have not done so. Israel, North Korea, India, and Pakistan haven’t signed the NPT.
LETTER: On the wrong side of history
As Canada reaches for herd immunity and comes out of the global pandemic more prepared for what the future holds, many are given to wonder how we might deal with the incredible deficit and long-term debt that has been accrued since the Liberals first came to power in 2015.

Sudbury letter: COVID has been a test, mayor says
One year ago (Tuesday), after careful consideration and conversations with the Medical Officer of Health, other members of council and local leaders, I declared a State of Emergency for Greater Sudbury. That declaration acknowledged the severity of the situation we found ourselves in due to the COVID-19 pandemic and was intended to allow for a quicker response to changing circumstances.
Sudbury letter: Maybe Onaping Falls should separate from the city
Here we go again, the narrative has begun with the mindless (perhaps vindictive) ramblings of two city councillors. What can we take away from the outlying communities? They are always an easy target. Heck, them hillbillies might not even know they don’t got no arena or swimmin’ hole no more. It’s such a far drive for the rest of us, and clearly ‘we’ won’t use it – so why should they?
