The evil in the hearts of men
RE: Trump’s presidency
In light of the Quebec tragedy I was encouraged to read in The Spectator that former governor general Adrienne Clarkson told those attending a citizenship ceremony in Ottawa that Canada is in danger of being influenced by what is happening south of the border. Due to a lack of media frontiers we are indoctrinated by the ugliness and appalling messages bombarding us.
In the opinion section, John Roe hit the nail on the head with his article, “Taking on America’s bully.” Bullies get their way because no one is prepared to rock the boat. They will isolate and intimidate while others just watch silently, hoping that if they do nothing, the bully will leave them alone (Europe, 1930s).
In the Go section, Sheryl Nadler sees the Muslims and immigrants as scapegoats, the way the Jews were in Hitler’s Germany. She says that we must never forget what evil lurks in the hearts of men, including the 63 million who voted for Trump. Robert J. Williamson. Hamilton
