I have made use of our local community newspaper (Stouffville Sun-Tribune) to voice my opinion on a number of issues. From a guest editorial to letters to the editor (see this and this as examples).

The following is the text of that response:
So, a question I’d like to pose to readers in this discussion is this: given the other side of the coin, do we really want the growth targets imposed by the ‘state?’ Or do we tell our leaders to stop now, while there is some ‘country’ left in the Town.

It is a fictional tale that examines the various problems humans are encountering: rising police states; environmental degradation; economic uncertainty; and, surviving in a world of unexpected social fallout due to the ‘perfect storm’ of unintended consequences from our ‘exponential growth culture’.
