A wonderfully outraged reader of mine forwarded me a couple of emails this morning, interesting in detail. After sending a polite and well worded letter of outrage ( that also contained a link to a recent Times Colonist editorial ) to a well known local writer/reporter, said reporter suggested that he submit it as a letter to the editor, with the Vancouver Sun.
Oddly enough, this reader has submitted this letter to several papers, none of which would see fit to print it yet, including the Sun.
For your reading pleasure this Sunday morning.
RE: BC Rail Plea Bargain
Open Letter to the People of BC:
For those of us old enough to remember, this whole sordid BC Rail affair is eerily reminiscent of another country’s descent in to a near-collapse of democracy and the rule of law.
Richard Nixon’s trail of dirty tricks, payoffs, slush funds and cover-ups.
Prosecution of the puppets, not the puppet-masters.
This is what has become of our once-proud democratic institutions.
Where are OUR Woodward and Bernstein?
Where is OUR Washington Post?
People of BC – STAND UP! SPEAK OUT!
Our democracy is at stake when Justice can be bought and sold.
Warren White, Gordon Head, Victoria
