Dear Cottage Life

Now that I have stopped jumping up and down and shouting “Yes! Yes!,” I am writing a letter of congratulations and solidarity for “What We Value Now” (Editor’s Note, Winter ‘18/’19). It is a sobering invitation to re-evaluate what matters to us most deeply. Surely it is not our “stuff,” but our place—the one we want to share in the future with children who unknowingly count on us to reverse the harm we have wittingly and unwittingly done. —Pamela Gibson, Sparrow Lake, Ont


I am writing to let you know that I thought “What We Value Now” was an excellent editorial. You did a wonderful job of connecting local concerns with global climate change problems. It is astonishing to me that so many of our politicians are not willing to accept the obvious fact that they need to make the decisions necessary to steer the planet away from the disastrous efects of signiicant temperature increases. It is very clear that carbon taxes are necessary, and are the most effective and eicient way to deal with climate change. I hope that your reasoned arguments may have some impact on the discussion of the climate change issue and the urgent need for decisive action in Ontario, across Canada, and elsewhere.
