Re: Missed chance to help more, June 19 letters.
Judging from the supreme choice of words by letter-writer and high school student Gary Sipeng Xie, he is no longer discouraged by the long faces he and his friends encountered during the demonstration in front of MP Russ Hiebert’s office.
And I salute them all for their courage and commitment to democracy, because it is under attack by the controlling and abusive nature of the Stephen Harper government.
Don’t get me wrong. I don’t enjoy trashing our prime minister like this. I’ve got better things to do with my time. But the man shows absolutely no respect for anyone or anything that stands in the way of his big plan. He’s definitely not interested in governing for all Canadians, but he’s definitely interested in controlling all Canadians.
Bill C-38 is a very scary piece of legislation that gives ultimate power to just one man. C-38 also contains enough harmful ingredients to literally change the face of Canada while deconstructing democracy at the same time. Very scary indeed.
No matter whom you are, where you come from or whatever your story may be, as Canadians we should all be deeply concerned about the harmful nature of Bill C-38. I know letter-writer and high school student Gary Sipeng Xie is.
