Letters Policy:

The Northern Light welcomes letters to the editor. Please include name, address and daytime telephone number for verification. Letters should be of interest to the general public, 350 words or less and may be edited or rejected for reasons of legality, length and good taste. Thank-you letters are limited to five individuals or groups. Writers should avoid personal invective. Unsigned letters will not be accepted for publication. Requests for withholding names will be considered on an individual basis. Only one letter per month from an individual correspondent will be published. Email letters to letters@thenorthernlight.com.
