Tragedies on the Red

Re: Tragic end for homeless hero (Aug. 19). I really think Faron Hall just wanted everyone to leave him to his life as he knew it. He had made that choice a long time ago. I saw him regularly at Dominion Shopping Centre at the Norwood Bridge and he was always pleasant and I believe he was living the life he wanted.

Hopefully, Faron Hall has found the peace that eluded him in his life. RIP, Mr. Hall.

It's always sad when a life is taken too soon. I hope your demons no longer haunt you, Mr. Hall.

Re: Missing girl identified as body pulled from river (Aug. 18). Poor child, clearly having difficulty, but also may have run with the wrong crowd. A tragic way to delete one name from the too-long list of missing aboriginal women (and girls), and a horrible way to bring closure to her family.

What kind of monster would do something like this to a young girl? It is incredibly saddening to read about someone who was probably born and raised into difficult circumstances meet this kind of horrible fate.

Mulling city hall fix

Re: Province could end city hall's ethics problems (Aug. 19). It is obvious the status quo is not working. Our current mayor's reign has been a sordid tale almost right from the start. Unfortunately, I can't put any faith in our current provincial government's abilities to improve the situation.

Jets TV change coming

Re: Jets game broadcasts moving to TSN3 (Aug. 18). There's gotta be a catch. I can't see TSN giving up that revenue without something in return.

-- OBSERVER6

 

Funny how MTS just announced Jets TV was going to $12. Guess they're not in the loop. Glad to see an announcement that seems to favour the consumer.

Something seems too good to be true.

Excellent news... now, if our GM would only wake up.
