Oakville Beaver Editorial: Canada 150 in Oakville
Oakville Beaver

Responses — including your name and age as of July 1, 2017 — must be limited to 25 words or less, so that we can include as many reader responses as possible in the newspaper.

You can include a photo of yourself if you wish, but there are no guarantees all photos will be published.

The Beaver will start to publish residents’ thoughts just as soon as we have collected multiple responses. An online version of responses will be regularly updated.

Some responses may also be republished in upcoming special Canada 150 publications of the Oakville Beaver and its Halton sister Metroland publications in Halton.

Show us your Canada 150 pride by expressing why you’re proud to be Canadian in an email directed to Due to the anticipated volume of responses, the Oakville Beaver will not be able to confirm when comments will be published.
