The Ed­i­tor, Re: ‘81st best place to re­tire,’

Au­gust 2, 2017;

In re­sponse to ur­ban­ite Mark Brown of MoneySense who ranked North Glen­garry 81st in his study of the best places to re­tire in Canada, all of the at­tributes that he enu­mer­ates such as thriv­ing arts scene, easy ac­cess to air­ports, easy ac­cess to tran­sit.

If th­ese things above ever come to this beau­ti­ful coun­try­side with its rolling hills, no street lights, wildlife, pure air, low den­sity pop­u­la­tion, etc. they will kill Glen­garry!

He was some­what in­sult­ing when he says, “A strong sense of com­mu­nity doesn't hurt ei­ther.” Glen­garry al­ready has this!

Glen­garry also al­ready has a thriv­ing arts scene!

We have beau­ti­ful walk­ing/run­ning/ski­ing trails!

Be­ing 81st means we should try to fall even lower be­cause all of Mr. Brown's ur­ban cri­te­ria that we lack are the very rea­sons that we choose to re­tire here!

Love the coun­try! With­out in­dus­trial wind farms and so­lar pan­els of course. Marie Langevin, North
