Dear Lou,

I understand you’re reaching out to rural Ontarians for dialogue and feedback of issues.

op·pres·sion [uh-presh-uh n] noun 1. the exercise of authority or power in a burdensome, cruel, or unjust manner.

ne·glect [ni-glekt] 1. to pay no attention or too little attention to; disregard or slight: 2. to be remiss in the care or treatment of: 3. to omit, through indifference or carelessness: 4. to fail to carry out or perform (orders, duties, etc.): 5. to fail to take or use: to neglect no precaution.

dis·har·mo·ny [dis-hahr-muh-nee] noun, plural dis·har·mo·nies. 1. lack of harmony; discord. 2. something discordant.

mis·trust [mis-truhst] noun 1. lack of trust or confidence; distrust.

dam·age [dam-ij] noun 1. injury or harm that reduces value or usefulness

in·so·lence [in-suh-luh ns] noun 1. contemptuously rude or impertinent behavior or speech.
