Re: Pauline Liste’s recent letter to the editor (The NEWS, Dec. 1), which was in answer to a letter penned by Tony Markle.
I completely disagree with Liste’s reaction to Markle. In fact I think she should accommodate a bunch of refugees in her own home if she feels so strongly in supporting this cause.
I believe in Markle’s letter and support him 100 per cent. The government should have at least taken a vote and asked the people of Canada if we want 25,000 refugees in our country.
Also, these refugees automatically get healthcare, housing plus various funding. How can you justify this when there are countless Canadian people that are homeless, jobless and starving.
Right now, in my town of Qualicum Beach, there are homeless people outside of businesses asking for food. Liste and others, if they are not doing so already, might want to open their hearts and homes to these people.
