Dear Editor, On Monday, during the dog days of summer, Grimsby’s finance committee quietly convened to take care of some issues that have been plaguing the Town.

Resident says GBF stairway leads to neighbourhood unrest

Letter to the Editor Dear Editor, I should thank the GBF for bringing our neighbourhood closer together. It is surprising how much can be accomplished when people work together towards the same goal.
