Catching Amy 

To the editor,

I just finished reading "Chasing Amy" and it's one of the most powerful pieces of journalism I've read any time, anywhere. Such a heartbreaking story, and told with such compassion and honesty—many thanks to writer Lezlie Lowe.

I didn't know Amy Lee Collins, but Lowe has brought her to life here, given her a voice and given your readers a gut-wrenching insight into the problems of addictions and homelessness. This is the kind of writing that makes a difference in the world, and no doubt this piece already has, by making others look with greater compassion at youth who try to beat the odds against them.

Survey Asks

Should council use the yet-to-be-finalized Centre Plan when debating new developments?

  • No, it doesn’t exist yet and is still likely to change
  • Yes, thousands of hours of work and consultation have gone into what’s already assembled
  • Maybe, it really depends on what’s being proposed by the developer
  • I don’t know what the Centre Plan is and do not wish to participate in this poll
