Is ‘small group of fanatics’ running our country?

Dear editor,

I wonder how many Canadians, particularly Conservative voters, know anything about the Cornwall Alliance?

Dear editor,

I wonder how many Canadians, particularly Conservative voters, know anything about the Cornwall Alliance?

It is quite easy to find out about it — just Google it. Is this where present federal government policy is coming from?

For example — the rejection of the Kyoto Accord, the promotion of fossil fuels, the disinterest in alternative forms of energy, the muzzling of government scientists, the closing of the research station at Kenora, suppression of environmental agencies, the numbing of the media and dismantling of laws protecting our environment, to name a few.

If so, just who is introducing these policies? Is this small group of fanatics running our country and is Stephen Harper one of them?

I am sure that I am not the only one who feels that the direction Canada is going is frightening. Democracy is “for the people, by the people,” not dictated by one individual for the benefit of one group.

Ann Andrews,

Black Creek
