MPs and the Senate must work together for the climate Dear Editor,
I am writing to give my support for Bill C-12, an important piece of legislation in the fight for climate justice. I am scared for my future, and even more so from political parties who are actively trying to derail the passing of this bill. I am demanding that the Canadian Senate works together with Members of Parliament to pass this bill in order to prevent the worst of the climate crisis. Where I live, f
A belated thank-you Dear Editor, Last week, in our letter, we were very remiss in forgetting to thank the Hudson MediCenter for all their support before and after my stay at the Valleyfield Hospital. In particular our family doctor, Dr. Welik and our wonderful nurse Melissa.
Not forgetting the receptionists at the front desk – in particular Louise and Samantha – who were never too busy to make an appointment, answer questions, and offer support.
Thank you all very much. We
Perfect spot Dear Editor, The Racquet Club on Côte Saint-Charles would make a great ‘Walk-in Medicentre’ with a rehabilitation section, a pharmacy section, and offices for doctors. The Town of Saint-Lazare should team up with a pharmacy to create this operation. It would serve the region well because of its location near the highway! Cheers, (Former Hudson resident) Al Jared Victoria, BC
PHOTO COURTESY ANIMATCH Home Fry, a two-month-old female Nordic mix, had a rough start. She and her six littermates arrived at Animatch when they were only a few days old. Our resident Foster Mom took them in, and while the other six thrived, Home Fry gave her quite a fright. She was always the smallest and weakest, but she's doing just fine now and she's ready and rarin' to find her forever home. Because she's a pup, she needs someone home during the day for walks, play, soc
PHOTO COURTESY CASCA Sonia is an affectionate and sweet cat who was born April 2, 2018. She was neutered and brought to her foster’s house. For the first couple weeks she hid all the time and was not receptive to being petted. With a little time and patience now she can't get enough attention. Sonia absolutely loves getting treats and climbing her cat tree. Her favorite place to rest is on a window hammock so she can watch the birds outside. Sonia would do best in a quiet hom

My constant companion, a 13-year-old Jack Russell/Beagle mix named Rocky, seemed to age overnight. Now admittedly she’s already pretty old for a dog but her eyes were becoming cloudy and dazed and she was walking with a pronounced limp in her right rear leg. Her heart mu
