Ladies and gentlemen;
In response to concerns voiced about the inability for
Canadians to make informed decisions with the media focused on "the contenders",
several readers have responded, saying that they'd looked at the policies of the
Canadian Action Party but felt that those policies were just too anti-American.
To those who harbour such a view, I challenge that there is nothing
"anti-American" about CAP's policies; rather, they're pro-Canadian, there to
secure the safety and well-beings of Canadians, not from America, per-se, but
I find it quite unpalatable to think that Canadians are
better off to be (not so) slowly poisoned by the unscrupulous practices of
Dupont, Monsanto and Ethyl Corporation, to name but a few.
To those who would pander to those powers that would so
self-servingly foist such toxic products and practices upon Canadians, I beg to
ask, "How could you sell yourselves so short?"
Canada's resources, products and talents are sought-after,
world-wide; we should at least offer them up at fair-market value. And we should
have the right to say no to products that science shows are harmful to our
health and/or our environment. We are not just a vast pool resources to be
exploited without due consideration and we are not simply a "target" market to
be exploited without due consideration for the safety and well-being of our
Are Canadians simply a "target" market? An expendable
resource? Lambs to be slaughtered? So long as the mainstream media keeps
ignoring our alternatives, I'd say we're more like frogs, slowly being boiled
Yours very truly,
