Couple of interesting letters

October 27, 2008

in the T-J today, one which maintains that trades training does not necessarily lead to jobs in N.B. (An aside here: the writer mentions a six-month welding course. Well, my father was a welder and he apprenticed for four years: one year with a pipe-fitter, one year with a draughtsman, one year with a black smith, and a fourth. Standards changed some time ago, though. But I digress.) The other letter concerns the selling off of the UNB woodlot despite its being, according to UNBF’s Faculty of Forestry and Environmental Management home page, “a provincially designated wildlife refuge and is a favourite place for people of Fredericton and surrounding communities to run, jog, walk and enjoy nature.”

    Note: these letters also appeared in the local rag.

    In fact, they were not in the Gleaner at all and I have amended the post.

    Thanks, Debra.
