This brand of con­ser­vatism is fright­en­ing

The Hamilton Spectator - - OPINION -

RE: Give me tra­di­tional con­ser­va­tive val­ues (May 24)

Ev­ery so of­ten, I read a let­ter in The Spec­ta­tor that makes me say, “Thank good­ness that writer is not my neigh­bour.” This per­son’s def­i­ni­tion of con­ser­vatism ap­pears to in­clude hav­ing con­trol over a woman’s body and what she chooses to wear, as well as de­cid­ing that tra­di­tional re­li­gious be­liefs should be at the root of so­ci­etal rules. If that is real con­ser­vatism, let’s make sure it never gets to run the coun­try! Eileen Collins, Hamil­ton
