Letter: City, province and country weathering the COVID-19 storm

To the Editor:

In the middle of this pandemic, many positive attributes of Canadians shone brightly. To see bumbling Justin Trudeau appear with Doug Ford to develop a treatment strategy for our own country is a good sign, since Doug Ford, unlike Jason Kenney, puts the good of his electorate front and centre and appeared with our prime minister to reassure us – a non-partisan approach is the greatest strength of our young nation.

Our provincial government did an excellent job (north and south) in spite of this “obtuse” statement that, as a reward for the dedication and high-risk service by public sector employees, Mr. Leaning Bison expected a wage cut for civil service employees at the end of the crisis.

On the local level, our city council functioned smoothly and our city, regardless of growing pains being felt by our working people, being inflicted daily by Vale, is on the rebound. As we did in the dark days of 1977 to 1986.

The future in this little city is bright, thanks to our community pulling together as it always has done.
