Prime minister maligns CCF soldiers

Not only have you maligned the party, but also those members who hated war but fought anyway to protect your way of life!

Open letter to PM Stephen Harper:

It is unbelievable that you could malign the CCF for being against the war with Hitler.

Not only have you maligned the party, but also those members who hated war but fought anyway to protect your way of life!

My father was one of these members and I am proud of him for knowing that there is more to dealing with other nations than constant confrontation. War is the last resort, Mr. Harper, not the answer to petty demagogues stamping their feet because they can’t get their own way.

No, Mr. Harper, I am not a New Democrat. I follow the Green Party which, of course, will give you fodder for your vitriol against another person who disagrees with you.

May I recommend at this time that you apologize to all the fine CCF members who fought and died for you and that you cease and desist from using U.S. tactics to bolster your ego?

The proud daughter of a fine CCF soldier,

Irene Cawson
