RE: We should all be an­gry at school clo­sures (July 10)

Heather Kuyk gets an “F” for her rant for fail­ing to men­tion any­where the key is­sue of de­mo­graph­ics. On­tario’s fer­til­ity rate has sunk to 1.5, far be­low re­place­ment level of 2.1. That’s why 121 On­tario schools are set to close over the next three years, not be­cause of evil of­fi­cials and politi­cians, as Kuyk would have it. Jeff White, An­caster
