I would like to congratulate you on your coverage in the March 16 DT of the plight of two of the homeless people in our town. This was good reporting about people who are too often referred to as ‘a problem’ or even ‘scumbags’.

Please keep up the good work. It would be good if some of your national colleagues could follow your example.

Mr J.R.Dawson

Brampton
