    Dear Mr Warren,

    I wonder if you will remember me from the Honeywell project in the early 1980s. I was the young naive engineer with the big ideas. I left Honeywell shortly after the project went bust.

    I am now a Business Professor at the Tuck School of Business at Dartmouth and would love a chance to talk with you for about 30 minutes. Specifically, I would like to ask about the history of post offices in the 1980s and 90s.

    I have free time Wednesday through Friday this week (10/15-17). The next week is also good. Do you have any time? If so, please shoot me some suggestions.

    Best wishes,

    Andrew King

Hope u incluse in the Next issue, why in the past has Council been dorment in attracting new business. Let’s look at what takes up the majority of our budget. Savings could also Be realized if Grey & Bruce were to form the Region of Bruce-Grey. From a former Provincial Auditor.

    Read your article on global warming in paper today. Hope that you will highlight to public how eating animal products contributes more to global warming than transportation ( per UN report). Canada needs to get on the bandwagon and stop destroying the climate. Thank you for your article

    Thank you for your article: “Time for fact-based decision making on the Scarborough Subway” in the Toronto Star. We know the facts are being ignored because the buses here in Scarborough are already overcrowded and we will require more of them due to the elimination of RT stations at Ellesmere, Midland and Lawrence, if the one-stop subway goes ahead.
