Re: Editorial, “They left quite the legacy,” Aug 15.
Yes, they did and I just hope it is strong enough to withstand both the editor of the Sooke News Mirror and those that were elected.
I no longer wonder about what you feel is proper, because the amount of press bounce in your rhetoric is akin to “v Pravde net izvestiy, v Izvestiyakh net pravdy” (“news is not truth, truth is not news.”) I say this having once studied the Russian language and the Soviet Union’s policies of misinformation and journalism at Carleton University in Ottawa. Your rhetoric is laced with petting loved ones and hissing at anyone who does not appreciate you. This is obvious. What type of community newspaper are you?
I believe that the writer of this editorial column is a nihilistic influence and thinks that this fits in with the majority of council currently. Negate, Negate, Negate… should be your battle cry. I have often heard attacks on things in our community that are proper and healthy and should be able to be fixed by being broken… what’s wrong with this statement, eh?
Gail Hall, Ellen Lewers, Councillor Pearson, Councillor Berger, Councillor Kasper and Councillor Haldane… I would like you all to hear at the same time, “I hear things from you that I feel are not healthy for our community.”
I will answer everything that I am asked to the full extent of my ability, and in so doing I will not be shy to tension.
I will talk as I do, which includes sometimes a pointed intensity at others. Not anger, intensity.
There is nothing of a material nature that I cling to and nothing that I leave behind.
