@ pastoutla:

It's "whose" not "who's" and there should be a question mark at the end of the sentence. Perhaps if you put to use the education you received while living in "soo sank marie" (whatever that's supposed to mean) and cared enough to write a proper sentence using grammar, spelling and punctuation that the rest of us learned in Grade 2, then just maybe you could secure a job as Mr. Glassford has done.

"In addition to his 20 years experience in private business, Colin served on the Board of Directors of the Children’s Treatment Centre of Chatham Kent for 8 years." Does that sound like someone who needed nepotism to win the position over other candidates? It doesn't to me.

Mr. Glassford has chosen to return home to Sault Ste. Marie with his family and has successfully obtained work in a humanitarian and socially and environmentally responsible business operation. You, pastoutla, see that as an opportunity to be snide and negative. I would not be surprised to see you comment elsewhere on the lack of jobs in Sault Ste. Marie and complain that people are being forced to leave the city in search of employment. Here is a success story for us to celebrate, yet you make the choice to use it as a reason to complain. How sad it must be to see the world through your eyes.
