YOU SAID IT
SUN EDITOR WRONG
So the editor doesn’t agree with my suggestion that the governor general dissolve the government, saying it isn’t democratic.
Does the editor think that the policies brought in by Justin Trudeau are “democratic?” Trudeau admires some of the worst human rights abusers on the planet. He lied through his teeth to get elected.
Along with taking it upon himself to make decisions that are of no benefit to Canadian taxpayers, he has aided and abetted illegal immigration into this country by refusing to stop it, thus putting Canada and Canadians at risk.
Canada is quickly losing its democratic designation, something we are all proud of, because of his governance. Perhaps the editor will allow people to voice their opinion in the future without having to add his two cents. After all aren’t these letters supposed to be about OUR opinions and not his? Bet this letter won’t be printed. SANDY JOHNSTON
GREELY (Happy to print contrary views — that’s half the fun! And to answer the question, there are some undemocratic practices, yes, but just because one doesn’t like a policy, doesn’t mean it wasn’t democratically made.)
A recent letter writer says gun control works. Really, how is that? France has some of the strictest gun laws in the world but that didn’t stop terrorists from shooting up a rock concert resulting in the deaths of dozens of individuals, or at the offices of Charlie Hebdo, where many were shot to death in cold blood.
As the Sun pointed out, the criminal element will always get their hands on a gun. Perhaps the writer should give some thought on an emphasis being put on fighting mental illness and prescription drugs that are literally destroying lives and families across this continent. Although the Las Vegas investigation is in its infancy, mounting evidence is pointing to a very troubled individual; no amount of gun legislation would have stopped him from carrying out this heinous evil act.

Prime Minister Justin Trudeau is not just out of touch but out of his mind. How about getting rid of the free lunches and rides and vacations politicians get? How about cutting back their pay they are not doing a good job, period. Unbelievable. BILL BRAZEAU OTTAWA (The government has never seen something it doesn’t want to tax.)
RUN IT DOWN
The much-needed Energy East pipeline was cancelled mainly due to the federal Liberals. This is shocking. A former drama teacher (Trudeau) and a former CEO of the World Wildlife Fund Canada (Gerald Butts) running the Canadian economy into the ground, due to being clueless. How can this be happening? It’s a good thing Canadians got rid of that former prime minister who had that useless degree in economics. MIKE SHURTLIFF
