YOU SAID IT

Ottawa Sun - - COMMENT -

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.)

GUN CON­TROL

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.

OTTAWA (Some­where, there may be a happy medium be­tween France and the U.S. on gun con­trol. Canada does all right, we’d say.)

FREE­BIES

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

KANATA (Let’s not for­get the Que­bec clam­our­ing to end the pipe­line.)
