Time, resources, money being wasted(An open letter to the Hastings and Prince Edward District School Board)So you have decided to forge ahead with a name change for Moira Secondary School. What a fiasco.The majority of respondents to your “input survey” wish no name change. What exactly was the point of this exercise?Kerry Donnell has been quoted a

Trudeau needs to grow a spineThe opposition Conservatives may enjoy their self deception that they have swayed the Prime Minister to back down from policy to re-establish relations with Iran. It was just another suck up to Trump. See, Canada is at your side again, and for what? It won’t get us any concession on NAFTA and the trade possibilities we

Colton always a gentlemanI read Luke Hendry’s well-crafted piece on the departure of Chris Colton from the National Air Force Museum of Canada and wanted to add my name to those who would honour his service in that role and that of his previous career in the Air Force.Many of us in the media had a front row seat to watching the wondrous happenings

Preserve Belleville’s hockey history“Historic Downtown Belleville” — the words flying on a banner along Pinnacle Street. This brought to mind several recent Intelligencer articles. The first – ‘Hunting our History’ (April 25) - states: “One of the goals of the Hastings County Historical Society has always been to bring the colourful history of our

Renaming makes no senseWell, I thought that my Intelligencer letter of May 7 regarding the name change at Moira Secondary would probably be my last. The inane comments of the Hastings and Prince Edward District School Board’s Kerry Donnell in the June 13 edition of The Intelligencer, however, demand that I make a further – and final? – response. Do

Brant deserves to be rememberedSadly, a proposal to re-name Moira Secondary for Huron Brant of the Mohawks of the Bay of Quinte did not even make the shortlist. Nonetheless, because this summer marks the 75th anniversary of the invasion of Sicily and the Hasty Ps’ landing on the Pachino peninsula, perhaps the following can commemorate this man and

National security threat?Since the Trump Administration has declared that Canada is a national security threat in order to impose tariffs on our country, why in the world would the American president travel to a country that is a perceived threat to his country and, by extension, to himself? The Chief “Twit” should stay home and shut all US borders

Administrators need educationIn his Intelligencer article of June 1, Brice McVicar suggests that if people are unhappy with the fiasco of renaming Moira Secondary School – and it is indeed a fiasco – they can show their displeasure in the October municipal elections.Well, while the elected board may be ultimately responsible for the process, I real

Math doesn’t add upOntario Hydro was dismembered years ago by the Conservative government, which split it into Ontario Power Generation and Hydro One. It is only the latter company — a regulated transmission utility — that the Wynne Liberals partially privatized “poles and wires”, not the power generation assets. Hydro price increases were not caus

Better system is deservedThe City of Belleville held an excellent Older Adult Information Fair on May 31. A number of businesses and community services attended to share important information with older adults. One glaring absence was the Local Health Integration Network (LHIN). Of the 90 or so organizations expected to attend, the LHIN booth was t

Leader should address climate changeIn January the provincial Progressive Conservative Party forced the resignation of Patrick Brown due to allegations of sexual misconduct. If true, this was warranted. However, the new leadership race produced a party leader who not only dismissed the very progressive “Peoples Agenda” but refuses to acknowledge th

Funds could be better spent elsewhere(Re: Help coming on asylum issue, May 19 edition)These people are not asylum seekers. They entered the United States illegally where they generally worked under the table, didn’t pay taxes and were considered “foreign nationals living in the United States without authorization.” They broke the law to get into th

Name change erases history of school(An open letter to Mandy Savery-Whiteway, director of Hastings and Prince Edward District School Board)I just became aware of an effort to cause the death of the name ‘Moira Secondary School’ from the history of Belleville and surrounding area. I fail to comprehend the necessity or purpose of such an assault on t

City should maintain field to higher standardLast year The Intelligencer had an article about the Mary Anne Sills Park being known throughout the province as a leading multi-use sports facility.That was last year. This year I was at the park to watch some of the area high school rugby games. How disappointing to see unsightly clumps of dried grass

Panciuk’s claim raises eyebrows(Re: Panciuk running for mayor, May 25 edition)As the first candidate out of the gate in the running for mayor, Councillor Mitch Panciuk’s announcement ?contained the typical politico-speak. Belleville is at a “tipping point” says Panciuk and we need to take the city “to the next level” while we “pivot our focus” and

Combine schools’ namesEarlier this year I was disappointed to hear that the Hastings and Prince Edward District School Board had selected “Myers Creek Secondary School” as their choice for naming the combined Quinte and Moira Secondary schools. I see by today’s edition that the HPEDSB is reconsidering this choice. Good.I wish I had spoken up sooner

Response to fire was impressiveWe are eternally grateful to our staff, physicians, leaders and partners who responded to the fire on the Quinte 5 Medicine unit at Belleville General Hospital (BGH) on the evening of May 8. I arrived at BGH shortly after the evacuation was complete and was so impressed by the skill and compassion I witnessed first-ha

Take care in choosing candidateWhen it comes time to vote in the coming provincial election, think carefully before you make your choice. Many people in the United States voted for Trump because they disliked Hillary Clinton so much. They didn’t particularly want to vote for him, but they let their negative emotional feelings overcome their better
