Thanks, David, for the great Editorial, “Twist and shout”. I am one of those ‘scary’ leftists that Barrett and Poilievere so dislike. I’m not in favour of torture and the Conversion Therapy as Michael Barrett is. I wouldn’t like to be tortured for the way I was born if I happened to be gay. I would take Jean Charest any day over the aforementioned. I actually worked for him when he ran before.
Does “sign up now to help me replace Trudeau and restore freedom” refer to the freedom that the truckers wanted? No restrictions, lawlessness, free for all, no concern for fellow Canadian citizens at all. Disrupted businesses in downtown Ottawa; was so horribly noisy and polluted from diesel fuel many people have health problems. Also, there was racism and sexual harassment and other obscenities.
And our “friend”, Mr. Poilievere, supports this? I’m guessing he thought January 6 in the U.S. was a good thing too.
If Mr. Barrett became Minister of Health, we could maybe kiss our Health Card goodbye. Hello private insurance for the more well to do. Some people still love Donald Trump. In Canada, even. Go figure.
Thank you Jim Bertram for your heartfelt letter. You are very courageous. I sincerely wish you the best.
