Why did I bother? Dear Editor, With some reluctance, I decided to attend the all-candidates ‘debate’ held last Thursday at the Saint-Lazare Community Centre, organized and hosted by The Journal. (Not surprisingly, the candidate for the Bloc Québécois declined an invitation to attend.) To think that I gave up a post-season baseball game for that was, to say the least, woefully disappointing.

How much? Dear Editor, It has come to my knowledge that the cost to the town for the services of the ‘Hudson Patrol’ is $300,000 per year!

Nahak needs daily exercise and her favourite season is coming up. FYI, Nahak can climb a six-foot fence if she is bored or if someone is on the other side. If y
