Fearmongers should turn the page

Dear editor,

In the Thursday, Nov. 5 edition of the Record Ian Sibbald took the time to jot down his thoughts on a wide range of decades-old Trudeau/Liberal Party history in a letter to the editor (Chretien’s insight scares reader)

He maintains that words spoken by Jean Chretien “frightened” him and went on from there to broadly paint Justin Trudeau, Prime Minister of Canada and leader of the Liberal Party of Canada with brushstrokes from old political folderal.

The right of centre folks need to spend less time wishing ill to those of us to the left of centre and now in power in Alberta and federally.

Perhaps concentrate on a little navel gazing and ruminating upon what they have left behind to cause the electorate to quite soundly repudiate their positions.

I recall when they were the Progressive Conservative Party…worked quite well and they sure didn’t seem to be as afraid then as they maintain they are now.

Glenn Countryman,

Comox
