Congratulations Joan on a great career in journalism and all of the unique life experiences you have encountered on the job. Your reporting and opinions will be missed in Newmarket and York Region I am sure. All the best in the next phase of your life and thank you for all your years of serving the community and your readers in an objective way.

P.S. Thanks for stopping by Kapuskasing, not many people have been to the town I was born in ten hours North of Newmarket.

its about time.


People deserve wealthy life and loan or student loan will make it much better. Because people's freedom is based on money state.

home loans

I think that to receive the loan from banks you should have a great motivation. But, once I've got a credit loan, because I was willing to buy a house.

business loans

I will recommend not to hold back until you get enough amount of money to order all you need! You can just get the home loans or short term loan and feel yourself fine
