Pray closure won’t be death

The Harper Government is seriously reducing Canadian Coast Guard coverage on the West Coast, one reader says.

To the Editor,

The Harper Government is seriously reducing Canadian Coast Guard coverage on the West Coast.

But we have a new “Office of Religious Freedom” to further bloat the useless bureaucracy in Ottawa.

So I guess the plan is — if you are on a sinking boat in the pacific, don’t call the coast guard.  Just pray.
