Letters to the editor

This letter has been making its rounds across the country this week:
Thanks for nothing, Stephen Harper

Do we thank God that today’s H1N1 flu is apparently not as deadly as the First World War pandemic? As it stands, Canada is entering the height of its spread, unprotected.

Consequently, millions of Canadians will miss six to 10 days of school or work, adding insult to an already injured economy. There will be some needless deaths, as Canada could have protected its population weeks earlier.

In your case, you can directly blame the Stephen Harper government for the week long flu-migraine you are experiencing. Thanks for nothing, Mr. Harper.

Eugene Parks, Victoria
It's the health care, stupid, that's for sure.
