Greetings from Canada

Me and my family read your online paper daily from Hamilton, Ontario, Canada.

My mom and dad came to Canada from Hightown in 1968 with my three older sisters and one older brother, and I was born in Canada.

But I have gone back to visit, as has my brother and all my sisters too, and our children.

We have many aunts, uncles and cousins still in the Kirklees area and miss them and the area.

Just wanted you to know your readership has a small Canadian following.
