Partisan opinion before the by-election

It is letters like this that sometimes make me wonder if Elizabeth May has bought into part of Black Press

Re: Don’t vote for the status quo, PNR Nov. 21.

It is letters like this that sometimes make me wonder if Elizabeth May has bought into part of Black Press. The letter writer seems to be certainly a green party supporter.

While I must admit (without mentioning how I voted in the last election) Ms. May has certainly done some excellent work in Ottawa, the printing of the above mentioned letter is hardly an opinion but much more fear mongering and honestly quite partisan. To state that we are in danger of becoming a colony of China is ludicrous and will never happen. China is an important trading partner to Canada just like the United States and I for one am pretty sure that we are still our own country and would be more concerned about being a colony of the States than China.

In conclusion I am quite concerned such an incredibly partisan opinion is published just before a by-election. I would encourage any Liberal, Conservative or NDP supporter to craft a letter as publishing such does not seem to be a problem. Hopefully for my second attempt at Sidney council the Peninsula News Review will be so kind as to publish a letter from a Mike Barwick supporter.
