An open let­ter to all Que­bec po­lit­i­cal par­ties from a con­cerned Que­bec Cana­dian

Stanstead Journal - - FORUM -

To in­tro­duce my­self, I’m a proud Cana­dian Dutch­man, Casey Vriesendorp. I landed in Canada via the port of Que­bec City from Les Pays Bas. I have resided in On­tario, Manitoba, New Brunswick and cur­rently for the last 30 years in Que­bec.

I’m very sorry to say that the po­lit­i­cal en­vi­ron­ment seems to go down­hill fast since the PQ are in power. 1st the lan­guage and ad­di­tional laws: dis­crim­i­na­tion. 2nd Ed­u­ca­tion in all sec­tors: dis­crim­i­na­tion. 3rd This new con­cept about val­ues and re­li­gious items, in­clud­ing nuns and pri­ests: dis­crim­i­na­tion.

Pre­vi­ously, I men­tioned I’m a very proud Dutch-born Cana­dian and very open-minded. The PQ seems very short-sighted and nar­row­minded.

As for me per­son­ally, it makes no dif­fer­ence skin colour, re­li­gion, lan­guage, rich or poor. Per­sonal mu­tual re­spect is what counts. I just wish for mu­tual re­spect. Af­ter all, we are a mul­ti­lin­gual, mul­ti­cul­tural so­ci­ety.

To all our politi­cians: can you make gen­eral im­prove­ments? Do not for­get we have elected you.

I favour the NDP and the CAQ; they be­lieve in so­cial jus­tice. The Con­ser­va­tives and Lib­er­als be­lieve in lin­ing their own pock­ets. The PQ are dis­turb­ing and di­vid­ing all tax­pay­ers like Nazi Ger­many.

Trust­ing and wish­ing for a bet­ter qual­ity of life and gen­eral po­lit­i­cal en­vi­ron­ment.

A proud Cana­dian Casey Vriesendorp
