The Glengarry News - - The Opinion Page - I have a few

The fol­low­ing was writ­ten shortly after the SDG Li­brary Board’s de­ci­sion to close branches in Dalkeith, St. An­drew’s and More­wood. - ed

Dear Ed­i­tor: Just like Jimmy Fal­lon, Thank You Notes to write.

Thank you to Jamie and Frank for their ef­forts on our be­half, as well as Mayor McDonell.

We thank the Baby­lo­ni­ans for in­vent­ing ‘ 0’; with­out it, our Chair would have seemed less grandiose.

Thank you to Evonne for in­tro­duc­ing the mo­tion that ul­ti­mately closed us, and to Vic­to­ria for not show­ing up thus en­sur­ing our ef­forts failed. Nice.

Thank you to all Dalkeith pa­trons, for your con­tin­ued sup­port and all ef­forts in this ridicu­lous fight.

Thank you to our Li­brary Board for show­ing us what au­ton­o­mous power looks like.

Thank you Nolan for our new­est diet fad… no DQ for St. An­drew’s, Dalkeith or More­wood, ever again!

Thank you to Staff and Mar­ket­ing for all the help pro­mot­ing our branch, and keep­ing us open! Oh, wait.

Thank you to County Coun­cil for hand­ing over mil­lions with­out hold­ing any­one ac­count­able.

Thank you to all Me­dia for the cov­er­age, but we would have ap­pre­ci­ated more fact check­ing.

And many, many thanks to the Chair for mis­lead­ing us for six months, for not in­clud­ing us in dis­cus­sions, for teach­ing us new math, and for en­vi­sion­ing a fu­ture with­out us. You will NEVER be for­got­ten!
