Sometimes letters to newspapers are really quite funny.
As an example, I couldn’t help but laugh at recent letters attacking the Comox Valley Common Sense group.
Here is Brian Charlton, chair of the Citizen Voice Project (CVP) claiming that CVP is just a non-aligned community-minded organization!
But he admits that they receive funding from the Columbia Institute. Who is the Columbia Institute? Why, it is a big union-sponsored “research body.” Nearly all of its board of directors are union bigwigs.
Charlton also states the organization will not endorse any candidates. What is this, the dance of the seven veils?
Look a little closer. Brian Charlton, Anne Davis and Wayne Bradley, to name just a few of the letter writers attacking Comox Valley Common Sense, are all known activists in the NDP.
Get the connection? Columbia Institute (labour), NDP, Citizen Voice Project. Even Greg Phelps (whom Anne Davis publicly supports) admits that he is “coming from the left.”
Oh, by the way, if you look at the CVP website, the only name that appears is Brian Charlton. This is the same guy who calls for the Comox Valley Common Sense group to name all of its supporters. Why doesn’t he practise what he preaches?
