Are Roasters, poll voters properly informed?
Sixty per cent of Lethbridge Herald readers (in a recent Question of the Day) want the flat tax back (do we have that many very wealthy people in Lethbridge?).
Fifty-five per cent Lethbridge Herald readers want to see prisoners spend time indefinitely in segregation (do we have that many uncaring people in Lethbridge?). Troublesome prisoners usually have a mental problem and should be in a psychiatric unit in the correctional facility. Only the worst offenders should be considered for segregation, when they are a known danger to both prisoners and workers.
Sonia Kont and Bettina Pierre-Gilles, apologists for the UCP (a.k.a., Progressive Conservative, Reform, Alliance), were not happy with the women’s marches. They asked “where were the marchers for the Iranian and Kurdish women?” Yes, where were you?
In my opinion the majority of the anonymous Roasters in the Lethbridge Herald and the anonymous 60 and 55 per centers above that voted are of the same ilk — uninformed. I find that my concerns, made either in person, or by letter and email with my signature, tells the receiver I am a concerned citizen willing to be counted and I usually get a respectful answer even though they may not be able to solve the problem.
