To the Editor, MPP Laurie Scott, nothing you have said to defend or justify the cuts to our libraries stands up under scrutiny. During the announcement of these cuts in the legislature, you nodded and clapped along with your colleagues.

To the Editor, All of my life I have lived in Minden and don t remember ever seeing our roads in such disrepair, they are disgraceful. Potholes so deep they can damage a vehicle badly.
