Opinion pieces


Interesting juxtaposition on the editorial page of the Aug. 3rd Sooke News Mirror:

An editorial reminding folks that when they make comments on-line to keep it “clean, honest and legal… no petty name calling and childish commentary” and right next to it an piece by Tom Fletcher opining that the Green Party leaders “threw away their scientific credibility last week by chiming in with the tiny tinfoilhat movement and its trumped up opposition to B.C. Hydro’s transition to wireless meters.”

I guess the childish name-calling ban doesn’t apply to regular columnists in the printed paper.
