The Squirrel Man offers readers a grateful Merry Christmas

Sir: A ‘Good Day’ to each and everyone reading The Sarnia Journal. The paper is well known, and through it I have met and talked to people in Quebec, Alberta, Saskatoon, and other places.

I even have a friend in Cranbrook, B.C. and another in Belgorod, Russia. It is very special to see the news in The Sarnia Journal as it is read by people all over the world, and they read my letters.

It would like to say ‘Thank You’ to the many drivers who slow down and watch out for the animals crossing Christina Street South, all of the lovable squirrels, birds, raccoons, opossums, skunks, homeless cats, chipmunks and others.

On their behalf, I wish everyone reading, watching out and helping a very Merry Christmas and a Happy New Years.

Thank you from Mother Nature. God Bless you all.

Thank you, Good Samaritan, for returning my wallet

Sir: I would like to offer my heartfelt thanks to the Good Samaritan who turned in my wallet to the cashier at the Tim Hortons at the Michigan and Murphy intersection on Dec. 17.

Your honesty and integrity made what could have been a costly mistake into a celebration of relief and thankfulness.

May God richly bless you this Christmas. I will pay your gift forward and continue to be thankful for good, honest people.

God’s richest blessing on your day.

New NAFTA trade agreement was a non-partisan effort

Sir: We would like to congratulate the Trudeau government on the successful re-negotiation of the new NAFTA (USMCA) trade agreement.

This was a non-partisan effort with team members from the government, opposition, and labour, representing Canada’s interests rather than their own.

We look forward to the same co-operation on such issues as the opioid crisis, pharmacare, affordable housing and climate change.

Canadians would be the beneficiaries of collaborative problem solving and our democracy would be the better for it.
