I would like to say how much I appreciate your publishing Gerald Hall’s letter (The NEWS, Nov. 17).
Stephen Harper was the most decent, honest, fair, prime minister we have had in 25 years. He served Canada and the world in an exemplary fashion for 10 years. He was an honest family man. The senator scandal was a system he inherited and in addition was a big fuss about a small amount of money.
I could not understand why the ‘Stop Harper’ signs went up around the Island. They are just embarrassing. I cringe when I take my visitors out and they see those signs and think Islanders are ignorant. I would like to see these removed. Not only are they embarrassing, it is illegal to deface traffic signs.
Now we have a spoiled child in charge of the country who got in on sex appeal and futile irrelevant promises. Who in Canada wants to bring in unscreened foreign settlers? Who believes we need more infrastructure spending?
All infrastructure needs were taken care of by Harper’s government. Who wants to leave a huge debt for our children, just as the first Trudeau left for us (unpaid to this day)? And why should we start another fighter jet purchase order when the current one is well underway and will no doubt cost billions to cancel at this time?
