Full Text

Dear editor, Edward Cachia in his letter published Dec. 13 should at least get some facts right. Just because you do not agree with Prime Minister Stephen Harper's stance on Quebec hardly gives you the right to call him a "traitor". Obviously you feel the need to show your ignorance. As I understand it nearly ALL members of parliament voted for this resolution, so in your book it must make nearly all MPs traitors. This includes Liberals and NDP members who are NOT controlled by the Conservatives. As far as I am concerned if this keeps Quebec happy then it's a good thing. Michael Chong is a great MP and is entitled to his own opinion. As for resigning his cabinet seat, I doubt that does him any good, but he will learn that even some things you do not like have to be weighed against the good things that can be accomplished in power. Sorry, Mr. Cachia for your outburst-- only in a democratic country can you be so ignorant. John Shadbolt, Acton
