Buying firewood

firewood

Below is a link to help you in buying firewood for this winter if you are currently looking.  I must also warn you of an individual from Kazabazua who has been cheating the locals for years with poor quality wood at high prices. He will deliver green softwood and tell you that it is dry hardwood. He preys on people who do not know anything about firewood so this is why I am taking the time to write this post. Please visit this link to educate yourself about firewood.

If you cannot find good dry wood around Wakefield, I recommend you pay a little more and get eco-logs. There is a guy in Ripon who sells this products.  819-360-8572

RADIO WAKEFIELD

I talk about the anti-Franco articles that have been published over the years in the local Wakefield media. After reading a letter sent by a hateful local resident that was published on their newsletter, I truly believe that the local media are still promoting Anglos to dislike the French Quebecois culture. TIME TO STOP THIS KIND OF PROPAGANDA. WE ARE ALL QUEBECERS…

RECORD NUMBERS RELYING ON FOOD BANKS UNDER CONSERVATIVES

 OTTAWA – Shocking new numbers on Food Bank use shows the real price Canadians are paying for Conservative economic mismanagement and their failure to act on issues like childcare and affordable housing.
