And Now a Word From Our Leader?

Well I said I would post any response I received to my open letter to Stephane Dion about the Canadian mission to Afghanistan. I did get an unsigned reply, one that I was reluctant, for the sake of the Liberal Party, to post. Yet, here it is. You may note that it doesn't even attempt to address any of the fundamental questions I posed.

"Thank you for taking the time to write to the Liberal Party of Canada. As you know, the Liberal Opposition recently put forward an amendment to Prime Minister Stephen Harper’s motion to extend Canada’s mission in Afghanistan until the end of 2011. Since that time, the government has modified its own motion to reflect many of our amendments.

We will not abandon the people of Afghanistan, but Canada’s mission has to change. We are pleased that the government has adopted some of the Liberal language in its motion, but we will carefully study the new motion before deciding whether or not to support it.

MOS....why are you upset by this response you received to your very open and direct email? Government is doesn't matter which party is in power. They do not respect the electorite of this country and would like to do everything in their power to surpress the freedom of speech. They are a secret socialist society. Every working adult in this country needs to do what you have done. Pussy footing has to stop. The institution of being "polically correct" is just another way of saying keep "mouth shut" or the consequences will be a lable such as ignorant, uncouth or worse yet, mentally ill. Perhpas you have the where-for-all to organize Canadians to write, write, write and kick up a stink regarding what is going on in this country. I truly wish I could. Cheers
