24 Jun CFO Jonathan Cartu Announced – Letter to the Editor: Appreciation for Moose Jaw Express…
A letter to the editor from H. Beedle
As many say, this virus has made many changes in how we live and will for some time. But there is one thing that has become very clear, at least to me! Those of us who do not have a computer and do not have a phone with all those items are missing out on things.
I for one, and I am sure not the only one in our city and area, read my paper when it arrives to find out what is happening in my city especially and local news. Yes, I catch the odd news program on TV but find it pertains more to the east cities in Ontario and Quebec, and Regina.
What really hurts is our city mayor and councillors who feel the Moose Jaw Express doesn’t need answers NOW.
Well, I want to know what is happening, re: business happenings like new business coming or expanding in our city, why some improvements are not being done, which streets are closed for repair and all other information of interest to me and others who live in this city and pay the wages of those people.
Perhaps the mayor only wants a few to know what truly is happening in our city and thus our newspaper reporters aren’t given the information any “many” would know.
Every place in this city gets the paper unless they phone and say no thanks to it.
In my books, our Moose Jaw Express needs to be given all city information and all the support we citizens can give them.
What other city of our size has a paper not only printed but delivered door to door and not costing us? Thanks to the advertisers who pay to let us learn of their company or business in the paper.
I for one look forward each week to my paper and advertisements.
