Gwynne Dyer should run for of­fice

North Bay Nugget - - OPINION -

To the ed­i­tor:

Hav­ing been a long­time reader of the North Bay Nugget, I won­der why politi­cians do not de­nounce Gwynne Dyer’s re­course on world sit­u­a­tions.

Some­one should en­cour­age him to run for pub­lic of­fice, or men­tor NATO. He is so on, com­ment­ing on world events. We have many think-tanks mak­ing cryp­tic of­fers of ad­vice, but just seems to be that. Peo­ple who have been around and seem to be cred­i­ble per­sons to lis­ten to and maybe take some of their ad­vice.

Our gov­ern­ment seems, in my opin­ion, to re­sort to hold­ing com­mu­nity hall meet­ings, look­ing for our lowly ad­vice only when they don’t have an­swers to Canada’s prob­lems.

We numer­ous peo­ple get stuck with more mis­ad­ven­tures, be­ing higher gas prices, taxes, new me­ters, park­ing me­ter fines. (Or mis­taken loans to a coun­try, for­given to pay us back by the higher ups.)
