TO ALL UNIACKE DISTRICT VOLUNTEER FIRE FIGHTERS

It is with much regret that I write to apologize for an article in the Weekly Press out of Enfield on the 12th of March that severely misquoted me in a debate that I participated in at Council in February.

The debate occurred during budget sessions and surrounded the need for a policy for Fire Departments to submit a budget in advance of the Municipal budget for various reasons. It is something that I believe in as the current system does not work in my opinion. This opinion is not shared by all Councillors however I do not feel that the

LETTER TO THE EDITOR – BOURGEOIS

I am writing this after reading an article in The Enfield Weekly Press from Wednesday March 12, 2014, titled Budget Process. It was a bit surprising to me that Cyril McDonald (who is my area councillor) would make such inappropriate, and in a few examples, totally wrong comments regarding the Uniacke & District Volunteer Fire Department. I am a proud past member of U.D.V.F.D., and personally know many of the men and women who volunteer to serve the community of Mt. Uniacke.
I would like to hope that if Councillor McDonald (or any resident of Mt. Uniacke) has a question,
