Dissimilar echoes



The late author Farley Mowat never let the facts get in the way of a good story.

To the Editor,

The late author Farley Mowat never let the facts get in the way of a good story.

Mowat’s infidelity to the facts can be overlooked because he was a humorous writer with an endearing crotchety personality and a passion for educating us about the natural world. Mowat’s engaging voice will forever echo inside the covers of his books.

Prime Minister Stephen Harper never lets the facts get in the way of his conservative agenda. Stephen’s infidelity to the facts should not be overlooked because he is a humourless politician with a cold, calculating personality and an unnatural passion for power and control.

Harper’s ambidextrous voice will forever echo inside the prime minister’s office, the House of Commons, the Senate Chamber and now the office of the Supreme Court Chief Justice.
